This Friday if you’re not attending that obscure little music festival in the backwoods of Tennessee, consider coming to Noa Noa for an evening of experimental music.
The theme of Noa Noa Experimental Series #3 is “Loops & Bends,” three artists exploring circuit bending, sound collage, and creative looping.
Asheville, North Carolina’s EBNC (Aric Vance) headlines the evening. Aric last played Nashville at Betty’s Bar & Grill, and he was absolutely amazing. If you attended the 2012 Circuit Benders’ Ball Nashville, you saw Aric’s hypnotic video art, which explores extreme video compression, keyframe dumping, and frame concatenation. EBNC’s bio promises “an unusual mix of field recordings, samples, modular DSP programming, and hand-built/modified electronic instruments/effects to create a sound that ranges from a soothing, ambient wash to extremely harsh noise.”
Next up is Workshoppe Radio Phonik, the joint project of Pimpdaddysupreme and Matt the PM. They last worked together for Noa Noa Experimental Series #2 where Matt the PM projected live visuals as Pimpdaddysupreme played warped records on 6 simultaneous turntables. Matt took the board audio from that performance, recreated the visuals, and posted the results as a brilliant Youtube video. Matt and Pimpdaddysupreme also appeared together on this Theatre Intangible podcast.
Rounding out the bill is Adventure Bomb aka Tony Youngblood aka me. It’s my scoop & loop / arrhythmic sampling / circuit-bending project. Check out these two Adventure Bomb sets: Forecasting and Adventure Bomb Halloween Special.
