Born: July 21, 1970
Boris is a great vocal perfomer with a brilliant personality. He’s always been in love with his “vocal instrument” and its extraordinary possibilities. Boris loves to find different original ways of singing, due to his very different backgrounds, from classical studies untill jazz singing (thanx to his mentor Mark Murphy), passing from rock-funk to avantgarde experimental approach.
In these last few years he starts a collaboration with the Decostructing Metajazz Band “SADO” and released the album “Holzwege “(2008 - AMS/BTF) but the most representative Boris’ work is the album titled “INSANOLOGY”, an experimental vocal solo project, composed, arranged and recorded using only a looper machine and no musical instrument (except for two tracks played by Marc Ribot on guitars)....
