July 22nd:
Since 1980, the 4 or 5 or 6 (or more) Floptops known as Negativland, a multimedia collective originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, have been creating records, CDs, video, fine art, books, radio and live performance using appropriated sounds, images, objects, and text.
Mixing original materials and original music with things taken from corporately owned mass culture and the world around them, Negativland surreally re-arrange these found bits and pieces to make them say and suggest things that they never intended to. In doing this kind of cultural archaeology and “culture jamming” (a term they coined way back in 1984), Negativland have been sued twice for copyright infringement.
Rusted Shut
Rusted Shut formed in 1986 and continue to lay their repetitive napalm music on the lucky unwashed of Texas. As performers, their live show is infamously entertaining, arguing, backhands, kicking and all. Leader Don Walsh, a former oil rig worker, writes romantic lines like “I never asked to be born / I wish I would fuckin’ die” and “Do you like this life / Do you like to slice?” Though made by lovely harmless people, Rehab is the culmination of many years of genuine hatred, and with this long-delayed sophomore release, the whole Earth may now bathe in their infectious scorn.
The proper Rehab album (the first eight songs, barely released on CDR in 2003) was mixed and mastered beyond the red onto a frying cassette deck for maximum scuzz. A nice handful of hi-fi studio tracks rounds out the dish, making this five inch wonder a welcome return to pure rocking beauty, while providing a nourishing cleansing of the bile many of us live with.
Wizard Apprentice
WIZARD APPRENTICE (pronouns: she and/or they) is a music producer, live performer, and video artist. As a highly sensitive introvert, her multimedia projects are strategies for managing an overwhelming world. Her music is a combination of lyrical precision, minimalistic composition, and technically-amateurish charm. She creates media that takes advantage of user-friendly technology, skipping time consuming learning curves to focus on inventing highly relatable language for subtle personal experiences. She’s not a gear-head, rather, a digital folk artist who vividly and simplistically expresses her inner world using resourcefulness and honesty. Her video work incorporates green screen graphics, digital puppetry, and compositing to produce imagery that’s cerebral, campy, and hypnotic. She combines song and video to create multimedia live performances that explore intimate emotional themes.
Shit and Shine
Craig Clouse, aka Shit and Shine, has been called a genius and a maverick by the Wire. And the Quietus says he’s “uninterested in the self-imposed restrictions of genre.” From danceable electro-psychedelia to grinding, confrontational noise, Shit and Shine has, since 2004, made a practice of evading genre conventions. And the same goes for Austin-based Clouse’s explorations via USA/Mexico, his project with King Coffey from Butthole Surfers. But there is a common thread here, a sense of consistency that speaks to more than just bucking tradition. In fact, in all this experimentation and genre-bending, Shit and Shine seems to be meditating on and celebrating the very existence of the underground.
Hyunhye Seo
July 23rd:
XIU XIU (noise set)
Matmos is an experimental electronic music duo originally from San Francisco but now residing in Baltimore. M. C. (Martin) Schmidt and Drew Daniel are the core members, but they frequently include other artists on their records and in their performances, including notably J Lesser. Apart from releasing twelve full-length studio albums and numerous collaborative works, Matmos is also well known for their collaboration with Icelandic singer and musician Björk, both on studio recordings and live tours. After being signed to Matador Records for nine years, Matmos signed with Thrill Jockey in 2012. The name Matmos refers to the seething lake of evil slime beneath the city Sogo in the 1968 film Barbarella.
Jeff Carey
Jeff Carey is a well established electro-acoustic composer and multi-instrumentalist from Baltimore, Maryland. As a member of SKIF++ and Office-R(6) as well as a solo artist releasing under 87 Central and his own name, his work has seen him released on a wide range of contemporary labels for the last 15 years – from Staalplaat and Rune Gramafon to appearances on a plethora of other labels such as Sonic Circuits DC.
During this time Jeff has been actively experimenting with bringing an intrinsic physicality to his live shows and music. As far removed from the press play ethos of so much electronic music as it is possible to be, his performances and productions bristle with the sound of a hands on, fully interactive approach to the music he generates via self built synthesis software, gaming keypad and a joystick.
This isn’t a passive or sedate compositional process. His electronic compositions and their performance ‘are the expressions of structural possibility where sound is elastic, non-linear, multi-dimensional’. Describing his instrumental approach as being nearer to free jazz meta-saxophone, the mixture of this sense of adventure with the sort of abrasive, industrial sounds he produces makes for a totally engaging and thrilling listen or if you are lucky enough to catch a show, see live.
Bill Orcutt
Born in Miami in the year of Cuban missile crisis and educated in Florida’s finest institutions, Bill Orcutt is usually recognized as the co-founder of the band Harry Pussy. Formed in 1991 and featuring Orcutt on 4-string guitar—a practice carried over, developed, and refined from circumstantial adolescent experiments in working around absent strings—and Adris Hoyos on drums and vocals, with a second auxiliary guitarist added in in later years, the group’s sound centered on its completely unhinged ferociousness.
Within those furious eruptions, Harry Pussy drafted the blueprint—combining hardcore punk’s brutish speed blended with the art school caterwaul of No Wave—for the next two decades of noise-rock. In five years, they toured of the US and Canada with the likes of Sonic Youth, Dead C, Charalambides and Pelt and produced over twenty different releases on record labels of varying degrees of accessibility, most regularly for the Philadelphia-based experimental music imprint, Siltbreeze.
Twenty years later, Bill Orcutt still only plays four strings, but now they are attached to a vintage acoustic Kay that has withstood enough damage and repair that it requires custom tuning to stay in one piece. Sometimes clanging and ominous, other times mournful and slight, strangely alienating, but simultaneously vulnerable and cathartic, his music is compared with equal frequency to avant-garde composers and rural bluesman.
ZoZo is a vocal-driven hyper-dimensional electronic music duo made up of Zoe Wardlaw and John Mannion. They were originally based out of NYC, but now live amid the vortexes of the Mojave Desert, with their 2 cats.
