Michael Gendreau
Where other kids saw buildings, Gendreau (Crawling With Tarts) saw speakers in need of proper inputs. Recording infrasonic vibrations of interior spaces, he would then sound the structure’s resonances as an additional instrument in his site-specific compositions. What he achieves is vibration beyond sound, to sense time and space abutted in their infinite dimension in a kind of materialist darsana.

Fraid o’ Freyja
The psychedelic alter ego of Thingamajigs Performance Group, ‘Fraid o’ Freyja features a stripped-down trio of electric guitar (Edward Schocker), drums (Suki O’Kane), and Wurlitzer organ (Dylan Bolles), all prepared in just intonation. Owing as much to Danzig as Taoism, their improvised performances are heavy, ecstatic, loud, and long.

Roberts & Goff
At sea is the best of all existential metaphors, eyes bobbing above an undrinkable abundance, tender junk exposed to unfathomable chaos, we're chumming for Cthulhu. Noise miniaturists, Angela Roberts & Scott Goff, wield broken cello and microcircuits to erect an intricate soundship inside your skull. The thing about a schooner in your head, you'll never get it out again. Nothing to do but jump overboard into the boat that's on board you and sail the surge.…/…/angela-roberts-scott-goff

Nurse Betty
Nurse Betty is a noise experiment by Dianne Lynn of Homoglochini, Weird Ear Records, and LCM. Bipolar pulsing futzed out of modular synths, sequencers, and field recordings. Inspired by concepts and processes such as circulation, osmosis, pressure, and release. This will be Nurse Betty's SF premier!

Cost: $5
