TOM CARTER + RACHEL OROSCO
Tom is an improvising musician working in the medium of rock and experimental music. His electric guitar work weaves strands of melody, drone, fuzz, and charged silence into intricately detailed instant compositions. Best known for his continuing work with iconoclastic acid-folk improvisers Charalambides, Carter currently focuses on live performances and recordings both solo and with a variety of improvisers. His record Long Time Underground was selected as the number-one experimental album of 2015 by Pitchfork.
Rachel Orosco is a multimedia artist, DJ and musician. As a visual artist, Orosco uses mirrors and light projections to expand perception beyond architectural boundaries, creating illusory realms without borders inside of confined spaces. As both a projectionist and a musician, she has performed frequently with a number of collaborators, and as a member of Houston guitarist Sandy Ewen’s freewheeling ensemble Lady Band (a rotating cast of female-identifying performers, sound artists, and musicians).
