Sonic Mining Company is the latest collaboration from legendary guitarist Reeves Gabrels (David Bowie, The Cure, Public Enemy), prolific bassist Frank Swart (Norah Jones, Patty Griffin, Morphine), and naughty drummer Adam Abrashoff (Funkwrench, SIMO). Their name is a declaration of purpose based on their sincere desire to explore new sounds and “mine sonics” that have never been heard before.
Having entered Rob Stennett’s Subterrainia Studio with the expectation of experimentation, the outcome being a total mystery...the end result speaks for itself. Their self titled debut, Sonic Mining Company, brings you seven tracks of complete improvisation exploring the outer boundaries of electric music.
Inspired by the improvisational workings of Miles Davis’ Bitches Brew, Glenn Branca, Stockhausen, Hendrix, Coltrane and “anyone that blurs the line between sound and composition”, Sonic Mining Company value their music as not only improvised riffs and rhythm but as a conversation between three highly evolved musician friends. Press play now.
