Radu Malfatti is an Austrian trombone and bass harmonica player,[1] and composer. He was born in Innsbruck, in the province of Tyrol, on December 16, 1943. He has been described as "among the leaders in redefining the avant-garde as truly on-the-edge art."[2] His work "since the early nineties... has been investigating the edges of ultraminimalism in both his composed and improvised work."[3] He also operates B-Boim, a CD-R only record label focusing on improvised and composed music, much of it his own.
