Bill Orcutt and Chris Corsano Interview

If asked to name two formative musicians who’ve opened the floodgates for noise and experimental music today, you would be hard-pressed to come up with two better entries than Bill Orcutt and Chris Corsano. Free-form guitarist Orcutt brought his avant-garde din to the Magic City in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s as part of his pioneering noise-rock band Harry Pussy. With the exception of a brief nonmusical respite, he continues to push the bar with solo and collaborative output.

Orcutt’s counterpart, Corsano, has banged out forceful rhythms and clattering swaths of percussion with esteemed peers like Nels Cline, Kim Gordon, Six Organs of Admittance, and many others. The two teamed up, first as a trio with Alan Bishop in 2011, and then as a duo, releasing their LP The Raw and the Cooked in 2013.
