SSBT is an Austin-based trio that attacks jack-out-of-the-box free jazz, soundscape improv, hardcore, and noise via duel horns, duel guitars, and advanced percussion. In addition to an April 2014 tour with heavy-hitting sound artist John Wiese (Sissy Spacek), the free improvisation group has played distinguished concerts throughout Texas, Louisiana, and Mexico City.
SSBT features No Idea Festival executive director and curator Chris Cogburn on percussion; Steve Jansen – who has collaborated and shared stages with Ingebrigt Håker Flaten, Frank Rosaly, James Fella, and Christina Carter – on guitar, saxophone, and tape manipulation; and Parham Daghighi, an Iranian-American artist who focuses on electric guitar, alto saxophone, and vocal/text work that’s rooted in the Persian language.
After selling out of its debut cassette Lucy and Winston in just a few months, the group toured the Pacific Northwest in August 2014 in support of its second release, Helm's Deep. a limited-edition 50-minute cassette on That’s Cool Records.
