Omzfield is created out of necessity to experiment with sound and free form music and also challenge my own skills and creativity as a drummer. I’ve had many years backing up bands and serving others music or being a sideman. The solo format helps me to express the music I’m hearing and also create something new by going into performance with pre-found sounds, instruments and objects but using them in new and unpredictable way. I am using natural found materials like old leaves, garage tools, glass and paper to create loops and then mangle them into ebbing compositions. This project is my current wheelhouse and where I want to be musically I look forward to sharing my experience.

Collette McCaslin is a San Francisco Bay Area based player of the Cornet, noisician,abstract artist, and writer.
In her youth she explored plunder-phonics as a means of expression “composing” tape works comprised of snippets of radio static, college radio and death metal.
As a teenager she was heavily influenced by her family to explore the realms of jazz, she played the saxophone at Cabrillo College. Her own interests diverged however, when she began working with guitar.Her first album "Machine" is a layered work of looping...
At some point in the last ten years she started working with analogue FX boxes and doing feedback based electronics. With that setup she has played in numerous situations. Including "Lords of Outland" where she interacts with other musicians, live, with a feedback based instrument. As well as headlining at NorCal Noise Fest many years in a row...
Later, she began playing the Cornet...which is currently her favorite instrument. She plays in Forward Energy, Lords of Outland, and various improvisational Orchestras...
She recently changed her public persona from "CJ Borosque" back to her Legal name "Collette McCaslin"
" ...solo guitar noise a la Lee Ranaldo, Caspar Brotzman. Fine layers of distortion, looping industrial machinery effects, hypnotic and droning mostly, like the sound of working in the bowels of a futuristic steel foundry on the planet moon Titan with robot drones standing guard, heavy artillery at their disposal."- KZSU FM radio
