and Southbridge Slow Electronics DJs (Jake Elliott and jonCates)
13 November 2011
1035 N. Western Ave.
FROM JAKE ELLIOTT:
jonCates & I organized a show this Sunday Nov 13th at the Empty Bottle with Southbridge artist LORI Felker and and local doom audio/video punishers The Fortieth Day + Noise Crush. Jon & I will be DJing. It’s $3 and starts at 7pm.
For a long time we’ve been wanting to organize a show featuring music in the genre of Slow Electronics, as an outgrowth of our label Southbridge & our weekly radio show Slow Electronics (on glitch.fm). LORI Felker was the first artist aside from Jon & I to release a record on our label. We draw a lot of inspiration from her as well as The Fortieth Day (aka Mark Solotroff & Isidro Reyes) + Noise Crush (aka Lisa Slodki, who’s working on an upcoming release for Southbridge) so this is really exciting for us! I hope you can come out, and even if you can’t I hope you’ll help us out by spreading the word!
FROM THE EMPTY BOTTLE:
The murky improv rock duo THE FORTIETH DAY, comprised of ISIDRO REYES (BLOODYMINDED) and MARK SOLOTROFF (ANATOMY OF HABIT and BLOODYMINDED) return to close your weekend/kick off your week with an unholy rumble. Utilizing guitar, bass, drum machine and analog synthesizer to create epic, blackened, psychedelic-industrial drone soundscapes, FORTIETH DAY has been likened to “sustained, withering blasts of high-pitched noise that are as distinct from one another as spotlights sweeping across the night sky; jackhammer clatter, jet-engine whines and forlorn keyboard melodies dart in and out of those huge sounds with
the grace and impunity of plovers picking a crocodile’s teeth,” by the Chicago Reader. Light Makes Music, LORI FELKER’s first release on Southbridge Slow Electronics, is a solo 16mm film projector-based audio/visual work cut to vinyl utilizing modified 16mm projectors and hand-processed film strips to create dense noise and dynamic soundscapes – a work that truly must be experienced live to be fully appreciated. SOUTHBRIDGE SLOW ELECTRONICS DJs offer sounds throughout the night. The focus of the label is “decoding and resisting crypto-fascist patriarchal Power Electronics. We believe in slowness in terms of processing power, data streams and feedback both analogue and digital.” Get ready for some mind-expansion here tonight.
