GUO is a multidisciplinary duo formed of Daniel Blumberg and Seymour Wright.
The name ‘GUO’ itself is ancient Chinese for a metal vessel, or cooking pot, and the resulting work layers alto saxophone, electric guitar, feedback and metal distortion alongside the distinctly-voiced 'ekphrasis' response from a range of collaborators operating across different mediums.
On their most recent release GUO4 (Mute, September 2019), the pair collaborated with Crystabel Riley (drums), Fran Edgerley [Assemble] (text) and Peter Strickland (film). Strickland's film premiered at the 76th Venice Film Festival in 2019.
