Chris Corsano (b. 1975, Englewood, NJ, USA) has gained a reputation as a talented and versatile experimental drummer through a tireless tour schedule and numerous recordings both as a leader and a sideman. Equally
at home with intense kinetic explosions of energy and concentrated near-silence, he effortlessly flows from one idea to the next, always sympatico with his fellow musicians. He has recorded and gigged with, among others, Paul Flaherty, Thurston Moore, Jessica Rylan, Jim O'Rourke, Nels Cline, Jandek, Six Organs of Admittance, Evan Parker, Sunburned Hand Of Man, Okkyung Lee, Joe McPhee and Björk.
After moving from western Massachusetts, USA to Manchester, England in 2005 and then Edinburgh, Scotland a year after that, Corsano focused on developing an expanded solo percussion music of his own, incorporating
sax reeds, violin strings and bows, pot lids, adhesive tape and other household devices into his drumkit. In February 2006, he released his first solo recording, The Young Cricketer, and toured the UK supporting the acoustic guitarist Jack Rose.
Currently, he is the drummer on Björk's Volta world tour.
