Jeff Breeze, the proprietor of WMBR 88.1 FM’s live, local music segment Pipeline (Tuesday evenings 8-10) has his own side gig, and it’s not what you would expect, but it's exactly what you think it is.
Founded in 2004, The Boston Typewriter Orchestra (BTO) is a creative outlet for an ensemble of avant garde music making enthusiasts engaging in rhythmic typewriter manipulation combined with elements of performance, comedy and satire. Breeze, along with 6 additional musicians bang, tap and push their machines in what could be considered The Administrative Professional Series of STOMP.
You can pre-order their latest creation, Termination Without Prejudice, Volume 1 as a 10” EP vinyl for $15 (ships out on or around June 1) or digital album for $5. Peruse the rest of their Bandcamp page to discover an additional 2 EPs, 2 LPs and a handful of singles and demos.
BTO has been gaining media cover in preparation for their latest EP, including a recent highlight on Great Big Story, a global media company devoted to cinematic storytelling.
