Barren Symmetry is the current experimental musical project of Tom Callahan. He is a the son of a holy rolling preacher and was raised in a trailer park. He holds no degrees. Although early projects were heavy metal, exposure to industrial music through Mary Margaret Brown and the Crazy Mama’s crowd, the mashups of Trademark G, and experiences of trance and altered state changed his vector. He was heavily influenced by experiences at The Fuse Factory to start experimentation in the realm of noise and experimental improvisation.
