Real Name:
Joseph X. Burke
Obfusc is the musical output of Brooklyn, NY-based photographer/graphic designer Joseph X. Burke.

Drawing inspiration from everything that surrounds him -- the chirping of birds, conversations overheard in passing, mass transportation -- Burke submerges field recordings and other found sound amongst layers of sweeping melodic lines and percussive geometry.

Today, following three principally electronic releases, Burke continues his focus on producing melodic music amidst a broader array of analog instrumentation and experimentation.

All signals meander together through a hand-rendered daydream: unstable one moment, floating the next.
