All of the performers at the last Noa Noa experimental show are techheads. So when Pimpdaddysupreme informed me that Vine, the 6-second video app from Twitter, had just been released on Android devices, I hurriedly downloaded it and Vined away. So did Shane, Matt, Aric, and Mara. With all this media lurking about, I decided to make a repository.
Various Vines by Mara Bissell, Matt the PM, Pimpdaddysupreme, and Tony Youngblood. Btw, the movie screening behind EBNC is an endearing Japanese classic called Zombie Ass.
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.”
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.
