"oren ambarchi is a composer and multi-instrumentalist with longstanding interests in transcending conventional instrumental approaches. his work focuses mainly on the exploration of the guitar, "re-routing the instrument into a zone of alien abstraction where it’s no longer easily identifiable as itself. instead, it’s a laboratory for extended sonic investigation".
ambarchi's work on harmonics and resonance has led him to define serene spaces of fluid, shifting sound that is both fragile and extremely physical.
he is involved in many collaborative projects including the song-based duo sun with chris townend (releases on staubgold, preservation, textile & important records), burial chamber trio together with greg anderson of sunn 0))) & atilla csihar of mayhem (with a recent lp release on southern lord & an upcoming 10" release) and grave temple with csihar and stephen o'malley of khanate & sunn 0)))."
