Here’s podcast 84: Bad Vibes, featuring Brandon Able from MICROWAVE WINDOWS, Douglas Lucas from MU, Brendan Mucillo from HARDON COLLIDER, and Alan Sweeny and Aaron West from ASHOCHIOUS. We recorded this episode on Saturday, April 14th, 2012 after the bands came down for a show at Noa Noa. This is an improv very rich in texture, featuring circuit bending, modified guitar, tape loops, hum, buzz, feedback, effects, and much more. If you’d like to hear interviews with the bands, check out episode 83 featuring Hardon Collider and Microwave Windows and episode 82 featuring Mu. All of the bands are playing the Louisville Experimental Festival kicking off June 27th. If you’re in the Louisville area, don’t miss it!

Microwave Windows

Keeping up the momentum, I present podcast 83: Hardon Collider and Microwave Windows Artist Showcase!

Experimental bands MICROWAVE WINDOWS, HARDON COLLIDER, MU, ASHOCHIOUS, and JEREMY BENNETT played Noa Noa in Nashville on Friday the 13th, April 2012. Last week, we release an interview with Mu’s Douglas Lucas and the Noa Noa sets from Mu and Ashochious. This episode features an interview with Hardon Collider’s Brendan Muccillo and Microwave Window’s Brandon Able as well as their Noa Noa sets. Soon, we’ll release the giant head of this audio Voltron: the live improv featuring all four bands!

We recorded the interview the day after the concert on my back porch. It’s all over the place in the best sense of the term. Brandon, Brendan, and I talk about their upcoming gigs at the Louisville Experimental Festival; ELECTRIC INERTIA; the experimental scenes in Cincinnati, San Francisco, Miami, and other places; the phobias of moving and not moving; JEREMY BENNETT; the soon-to-be-announced 2012 Circuit Benders’ Ball Nashville; father of circuit-bending REED GHAZALATHRIFTSORE BORATORIUM‘s geodesic sound dome; the 2011 FauxBeAnt Art Fair; and Brandon’s run in with police brutality. In the podcast, we mentioned Brandon Able lives in Lexington. Since the taping, Brandon has moved back to the East Coast.

Check out a few video clips of the Noa Noa performances below. The podcast player is at the very bottom of the article. Enjoy!

Michael Hancock from Hearts Of Palm

Theatre Intangible takes a field trip to Cincinnati, Ohio for the inaugural FauxBeAn’t Art Fair: a circuit-bent, ant-themed, music & video festival starring THRIFTSORE BORATORIUM, CMKT4, HEARTS OF PALM, PELZWICK & DINGER, TALKING COMPUTRON, HARDON COLLIDER, MICHAEL UNA, and the father of circuit-bending REED GHAZALA! We play clips from the performances and interview GetLoFi‘s Alex Deeba, UNATRONICS founder Michael Una, Michael Hancock of HEARTS OF PALM, and Nebula Girl, 1/2 Mang, and TheJunkardCatalyst from THRIFTSORE BORATORIUM.

 

Nearly everyone we interviewed will be at the 4th annual EXPERIMENTAL GARAGE SALE in Chicago, Illinois on June 4th. Some of the most creative instrument-makers are bringing some of their wildest customized gear to sell directly to you. EGS features performances by the sellers, hands-on demos, and the coolest garage sale this side of Narnia. I grew so excited after talking with builders Alex Deeba, Michael Una, and Thriftsore Boratorium that I decided to splurge on a plane ticket and attend! And don’t worry. I’ll bring my trusty field recorder for a future T.I. episode.
