Bob Ostertag

Bob Ostertag (US) is a sampler-composer.

Bob Ostertag has been at the forefront of electronic sound since the late 1970s, releasing more than a dozen cd's and records. His previous collaborators include avant guarders John Zorn and Fred Frith, dyke punk star Lynn Breedlove, rock star Mike Patton, the Kronos Quartet, Anthony Braxton and more. His main touring group is SAY NO MORE with Phil Minton, Mark Dresser and Gerry Hemingway. His most recent group features New York's underground punk drag queen Justin Bond who famously tore a strip off Madonna at material girl's own L.A. birthday party. Bob has a solo CD available on Seeland which demonstrates that he is probably the most musical sampler player around today.
