About Volcano Radar: Noise Funk… Post Jazz… Avant Rock… Experimental Improvisation… Soundscape…
Volcano Radar is a fusion of ecstatic improvisational energy and Apollonian intellect. A power quartet fueled by dual free jazz/noise/avant guitarists Elbio Barilari and Julia A. Miller, Volcano Radar moves fluently through a stylistic range from noise-funk improvisation to structured sonic forms.

Silent films and Loud music pairs unconventional bands with classic silent films.
