Big Swifty, a Florida band led by multi-instrumentalist Pat Pagano,
debuted with the cassette Smokers but Pagano emerged as a mature
composer with austere compositions built around drones a` la
LaMonte Young, minimalist repetition a` la Terry Riley and microtonal techniques
on Akroasis (Cherry Smash, 1997), particularly its centerpiece,
Four Ragas and Atlantis, both unreleased, would have introduced
stronger elements of eastern music and spirituality.
Big Swifty also recorded under the moniker
Shri Swifty And The Mandali of Mantra the album
The Canals Of The Atlantean Plain (Cherry Smash, 1999).
