Shatner’s Bassoon

Influenced by contemporary artists such as Tim Berne, Mr. Bungle, John Zorn, Frank Zappa, The Thing, Zu and a range of rock and electronica; Shatner’s Bassoon have developed a unique collective sound based on developing complex compositional structures through improvisation – allowing the music to be naturally infused by their experiences.

The results can range from dense free noise through intense riffs and ambient textures. They play with musical clichés and conventions to produce music that negotiates a path from the beautiful to the sinister, humorous and surreal.
