Tim Berne - Alt Saxophone
An avant-garde, jazz-based trio (joined by the iconic saxophonist Tim Berne who is featured as a guest in their debut album as well), 9 Volt is comprised of New York's brightest underground jazz players. 9 Volt derives its unique sound from Parkerʼs use of electronics with the trombone combined with Maozʼs unique approach to guitar and effects.
Their compositions are born from a synthesis of electronic experimental, rock, jazz and neoclassical minimalism. The band is held together by Israeli born drummer Yonadav Halevy who is highly regarded in both funk/hip hop as well as jazz circles. According to the New York Times, "9 Volt thrashes toward an expressive new-breed fusion, informed by a few generations of downtown experimentation."
