liminal zone of total art and perpetual weirdness :: existential and ecstatic free drone music ::

Swinging Chandeliers (LA):
Swinging Chandeliers is the life-duo of reel-to-reel master Joseph Hammer (Los Angeles Free Music Society) and hypno-visualist Sayo Mitsuishi, and together they divine a liminal zone of total art and perpetual weirdness. Previous swings have seen Mitsuishi improvise visuals via overhead projector, unfurling a stream of subconsciousness – drawing simultaneously with each hand. The transparency that scrolls across her platten is more of a match than a metaphor for the looped tape traveling over the heads of Hammer’s rig.

Kaori Suzuki + John Krausbauer (Oak):
John Krausbauer and Kaori Suzuki’s existential and ecstatic free drone music emanates an intense ritualistic vibe. Utilizing sustained tones, alternate tunings, long durations/playing endurances, and stroboscopic lighting, their music explores the parameters and possibilities of psychotropic 'experiential' environments rather than the strictly 'musical'.

+ Frey n' Green (LA)
