Picture
D. Rosenbloom
David Rosenbloom (1949), an American musician, born in Baltimore, Maryland. He is a former guitarist on Glenn Branca's symphonies, has carried out parallel careers in folk, rock and avantgarde music. The album Reliquiary (Dark Roots, 2001) compiles archival works from 1981-93: e.g. the five-movement Requiem for the fallen (1988) for voices, oboe, flute, bass, synth, drums, guitar (whose first movement is a nightmare of martial tempos, high-pitched drones and lugubrious vocals, and whose third movement is a spasm of extreme sonic gestures).
