The Missing Parts are an acoustic, instrumental trio, formed in 2009 in Tucson, Arizona. The band is comprised of Oliver Blaylock on violin, Brian Hullfish on cello, and Paul Wright on acoustic guitar. Listeners have classified their music as everything from “chamber-core” to “alt-punk”, “string metal” to “American music.” While The Missing Parts can be a bit difficult to categorize, their sound is instantly recognizable. The tunes borrow from/pay tribute to many folk traditions while ultimately serving as a bizarre field guide for the sonic traveller. The Missing Parts have been compared with Kronos Quartet, Ennio Morricone, Béla Bartók, and Gogol Bordello, among many others.
