“An attractively extreme viewpoint.” — Greg Burk, LA Weekly
Howled Ground is Thollem’s solo exploration into the electric realm. Collisions and integrations from his extensive travels and curiosities. With a customized electric piano and analog effects.
Twin Braids is the collaborative project of Baseck and Joy Through Noise, born out of creative instinct and mutual love of synthesizers and drum machines. Rooted in a desire to explore all facets of imagination with analog/digital circuitry and modular grids, each song is very much induced in the moment. At the heart of the performances lies the transmutation of frequencies through a very hands on approach, where the symbiotic energy is expressed through the play between dense warrior rhythms and ethereal textures.
Eva Aguila aka Kevin Shields, is an experimental noise artist originally from Los Angeles, CA and currently residing in Portland, OR. Aguila’s sound-accompanied gestured performance is both the source and the driving force behind her conceptual sound-making, which has been described as “Sheer cliffs of feedback ice, throbbing and grinding gear distortions, and angelic digital bursts slowly cancel each other out creating additives that are neither impatient nor dead.” Composed using magnetic tape manipulated through film-editing machines, the movement required to create these sounds is of central importance to Aguila, whose ideal audience and interaction is with listeners outside of experimental music scenes.
