Biography

Chicago, United States (1993 – 1997)

Brise-Glace (French for “ice-breaker”, as in the type of boat) was a 1990s instrumental avant-rock “supergroup” composed of Jim O’Rourke (guitar, organ, tape and “razor blade”), Darin Gray (bass guitar), Dylan Posa (guitar), and Thymme Jones (drums).

Formed in 1993, the mostly Chicago-based band recorded and toured sporadically in various configurations until 1997. Brise-Glace used guitar improvisation, white noise, and found sounds to create a brooding and almost minimal, eerie musical sound.

    one of the most important records in (and addressed to) 'rock' music, despite the fact that it completely deconstructs all that anyone would/may ever consider 'rock 'n roll.' in many ways "When In Vanitas" is an album in essay format (it's very didactic!). the record calls into question the tropes and tendencies of rock music, while still managing (paradoxically) to rock-the-fuck-out (at times). humor is used throughout the record too-- but only a very close listening will yield it. bravo , jim
