Geoglyphs photo by Maclaine Diemer Geoglyphs photo by Michael Hutcherson

Geoglyphs plays highly rhythmic music exploring a broad spectrum of sound. Drawing from diverse influences in instrumental rock, hardcore punk, jazz, minimalism, electronic, and other experimental music, they build and deconstruct multiple sonic layers, mixing tightly composed passages with bursts of free improvisation, noise, and ambience.

NEW LP "EARTH | SCIENCE | FICTION" COMING SOON

ABOUT

Multi-instrumentalists Frank Aveni and Joshua Owsley met in 2007 and bonded over a shared interest in the music of Sun Ra, Can, and many others. They soon formed Geoglyphs and began collaborating on compositions and honing their aesthetic approach as an instrumental duo. Drawing from the realms from rock, improvisational, experimental, and electronic music, their dynamic compositions build and deconstruct multiple sonic and rhythmic layers, mixing tightly composed passages with bursts of free improvisation, noise, and abstraction.

In October 2008, Geoglyphs released their eponymous 4-song EP. Recently, they have been hard at work on a full-length album titled Earth | Science | Fiction that is slated for release later this year. Recorded at Firehouse 12 in New Haven with engineer Nick Lloyd (Anthony Braxton, Bill Dixon, Mary Halvorson) and mixed with Michael Hutcherson (Owlfood, Your Reflection) and Greg Moss (ISIS. 27) at the Soul Shop in Medford, MA, this new record captures the evolution of Geoglyphs' rich and varied sound. Inspired by and sometimes recalling the work of genre-bending bands like This Heat, Tortoise, and Soft Machine, Earth | Science | Fiction spans a wide sonic territory, combining the volume and energy of punk and hardcore with the improvisation of jazz, tempered with waves of ambient and textural sound.
