Biography:Jacob Felix Heule is a drummer and electronic musician whose music directly expresses sonic texture and timbre through the discipline of free improvisation. Spanning extremes of physicality and intensity, stasis and restraint, his music follows from the traditions of electro-acoustic improv and noise.
In 2004 he founded the acoustic grind duo, Ettrick, with both members playing both drums and saxophones in a style often described as a hybrid of free jazz and black metal.
Heule has worked extensively with double bassist Tony Dryer since 2006, exploring heavy electronics as Basshaters since 2008. Their textural acoustic improv trio with clarinetist Jacob Lindsay released its debut album, Idea of West, on Creative Sources in 2008. Heule and Dryer also have a trio CD with saxophonist Jack Wright, and have performed live with diverse musicians such as Michel Doneda, C Spencer Yeh, Gino Robair, and Damon Smith.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the International Noise Conference is a sometimes touring event masterminded by veteran noise dude, Rat Bastard, and headlined by his band the Laundry Room Squelchers. For each stop on the tour, Rat selects a local curator to put together a bill of performers who each perform for 15 minutes or less. Other rules include: no laptops, no droning. The definition of "noise" is often vague, and will include harsh feedback-driven assualts, hardcore free jazz, confrontational performance art, and sometimes pretty electronic music. This show is curated by The Lab's Executive Director, Sarah Lockhart.
