More Eaze is the performing outlet of Marcus Rubio’s experiment in musical form. Emphatically of no relation to the conservative Florida senator, the Austin-based composer challenges the very definition of music by deconstructing songs into avant-garde collages of noise. Although Rubio spent the greater part of the year collaborating with different artists, he returns to More Eaze recharged and ready to share new material. In h3llo! – More Eaze’s recent October release – the mechanical clatter and din of the Futurists gets a healthy dose of Frank Zappa’s sense of humor in intricately layered tracks like the ascending “r u ok.” Without ever losing control of a song’s composition, More Eaze achieves a kind of postmodern fragmentation that leaves you absolutely mystified. San Diego’s Steve Flato and Alan Jones share the bill with More Eaze as well as local shredders Freebiez and Fierce Deity.
