Unpopular Electronics
Gino Robair patches Tom Djll into his array only to discover the resulting circuit is a two-headed snake snarfing endlessly spawned tails. Caught in alligator clips, wrestling like Laocoön in a nest of patchcords, it's really the audience who ends up ensnared when Robair and Djll merge via Serge modulars. Robair has performed and recorded with Tom Waits, Anthony Braxton, John Zorn, Nina Hagen, Terry Riley, Lou Harrison, John Butcher, Derek Bailey and is a founding member of the Splatter Trio and Pink Mountain. Djll has performed with the Art Ensemble of Chicago, Karl Berger, David Toop and plays with Tender Buttons, Euphotic, and Kokuo.

Omniverous Sensillium
Seltsam oscillations from silver briefcases brimming with hand built circuits are spun by the jittering palpae of the best dressed bugs in earth. Omniverous Sensillium don't blow minds, they pulverize them in place with arachnid speed, enrapturing your mind 'til it sits light and fluffy, a souffle enskulled. When mandibles fastened about your ribs tugging you through that small crack in the floor, try to guess if the sounds are still coming from them or from you. Fun!

Ava Koohbor
Immersion in the immediate living world, familiar found objects as yet unfamiliar to the artistic world. Through an indeterminate process, found objects manifest themselves into assemblages; representing a dynamic transition from conditioned mind of the artist to unpredictable universal possibilities of form.

If one hand clapping gets snared in the gears and extruded through a Boltzmann brain, does the whole forest fall, bursting into a drift of leaves? Kristian Dahlbom combines digital synthesis, feedback and DSP to blossom then fell improbable sounds in an instant then settle to silence. A sort of sonic doula, Dahlbom is based in LA following his deep immersion in studies at Mills College. Don't miss this singular moment inside the Peacock Lounge.
