Volcano Radar Duo, Elbio Barilari & Julia Miller with Andrea Centazzo.
Como ocurre con tantos músicos uruguayos en el exterior, la exitosa trayectoria de Elbio Rodríguez Barilari tiene poca repercusión local. En 1998 se instaló en Chicago y sus composiciones se vienen tocando por diversas orquestas y conjuntos. En 2012 armó, junto a la estadounidense Julia Miller, el grupo Volcano Radar.
Volcano Radar was formed back in 2012 when Chicago-based guitarist, composer, eductor and poet Julia Miller found musical chemistry with a multi-instrumentalist and composer from Uruguay, Elbio Barilari. Two very outward thinking musicians who came together from decidedly different backgrounds to exploit some common ground in the playground of experimental, noisy electro-jazz. Refutation of Time (2013) was the first product
uruguayan born multi-instrumentalist and composer elbio barilari and american guitarist and composer julia miller played together for the first time in 2012, and they made their first public appearance as volcano radar at the empty bottle shortly after. the soundscapes of this very active quartet have been described as: noise-funk, post-jazz, avant-rock, improvised experimental music, jazz-electronica and neo-psychedelia.
these improvised pieces (recorded in chicago in october of 2015) are their first studio recordings as a duo and their second release for pan y rosas. three tracks. synthesized guitar, electric guitar, cornet, flugelhorn, pocket trumpet, electric viola, soprano sax, electronics. solitude. memories. albatross.
