Grasshopper (6)

Grasshopper (6)

Real Name:
Grasshopper, a multifaceted trumpet duo, comprised of Jesse DeRosa and Josh Millrod, don't so much play their instruments, as they do brutally butcher them in an outpouring of drone poems, noisescapes, feedback shrieks and gentle amp hums, portraying as much a direct lineage from Black Flag as they do Stravinsky, Bitches-era Miles Davis or Subotnick.

Josh and Jesse, both trained orchestral musicians dissatisfied with the classical music world, made a move to the realm of experimental composition after graduating from two of the country's most respected music conservatories in 2006.

Josh and Jesse have found themselves in front of audiences in Canada, Western Europe, Scandinavia, and even parts of Africa for months at a time, traveling the world playing venues ranging from the dingiest bars of NYC to some of Europe's most revered cathedrals.

Now residing in NYC, the duo recently celebrated their 5th year as an ensemble.

Grasshopper have been described as the sound of "a wolf's heartbeat on ultrasound," "a windspiel made of knives" and "snake charming music made by industrial robots."
