8/22 – Indignant Senilty, Weak Sisters, Benjamin Nelson + more!
Indignant Senility (Portland, OR)
Indignant Senility is a rotten-ambient 1-man band with a heavy emphasis on theft and degradation of classical music, among other things.
Benjamin Nelson (Boston, MA)
Influenced by early minimalism, Nelson’s music focuses on extremes such as duration, volume, or lack thereof to explore their effects on hearing, stream separation, and to reveal often hidden but dramatic shifts in overtones, spectrum and phase. Integrating electronics, acoustic sound, and environment Nelson seeks to avoid the often sterile trappings associated with generative or systematic composition, as well as the overly spiritual , falsely mystified, or passive listening notions associated with long form music.
Permanent Waves (Boston, MA)
Metal and flesh to tape. No purpose electronics. Stagnancy and rot.
