Austin Glover & Eric Perreault



Austin Glover (b.1988) was born in Gastonia N.C., and currently lives in Greensboro N.C., where he studied composition at UNC Greensboro from 2007-2009. His music is heavily influenced by the likes of Steve Reich, Terry Riley, John Cage, Erik Satie and the alternative / progressive / ambient / indie-rock scenes of the last three decades.

Austin is also a regular performer in the east coast lineup of the Andrew Weathers Ensemble and the improvisational duo Weathers/Glover.

Eric Perreault (b. 1988) is a cellist. He currently lives and plays in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. His musical projects embrace classical and experimental idioms, ranging from regional symphonies and chamber music to studio recording and improvisation. He teaches privately, with a physically oriented approach informed by studies in martial arts and somatic education methods such as Feldenkrais and Alexander Technique. He holds Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Cello Performance from the University of North Carolina - Greensboro and Ithaca College, respectively.

Tim Feeney



Tim Feeney seeks to explore and examine the timbral possibilities inherent in everyday found and built objects. He treats his percussion setup as a friction instrument, using bows, scrapers, and rosined drumheads to capture
and amplify frequencies that go unheard when an object is struck with a traditional mallet. He supplements this acoustic console with an electronic instrument, arranged from mixers, contact microphones, and effects pedals,
that synthesizes and alters the spectral characteristics of low-fidelity tones,
feedback, and noise.

Tim worked for years within Boston's timbral improvising community, a group of
musicians interested in unstable sounds and silences, exploring austere combinations of sound and the otherworldly ripple effects that pulse through a silent space and alert ears. He has performed with musicians including thereminist James Coleman, cellist/electronic musician Vic Rawlings, pianist Annie Lewandowski, tape-deck manipulator Howard Stelzer, trumpeter Nate Wooley, sound artists Jed Speare and Ernst Karel, saxophonist Jack Wright, the trio Meridian (with percussionists Nick Hennies and Greg Stuart), and
the trio ONDA (with vocalist Ken Ueno and violinist Hillary Zipper. His concerts have been held at experimental spaces such as the Red Room in Baltimore, Boston's Institute of Contemporary Art, Firehouse 12 in New Haven, Connecticut, the Knitting Factory New York, and the Stone, as well as the Center for New Music and Audio Technology at UC-Berkeley, the Stanford Art Museum, Princeton University, and Dartmouth College.

Tim's double life as an interpreter of contemporary compositions has led him to venues such as the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Zankel Hall, and the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival, and his work has been featured on WNYC Radio's New Sounds. A member of Boston's Callithumpian Consort, Tim has appeared on the Musica Nova series at the Gewandhaus in Leipzig, Germany,
and at New York's Tonic, as part of its 50th birthday celebration for John Zorn. As a founding member of the So Percussion Group, Tim appeared in concerts and masterclasses at Columbia University and Williams College, and commissioned David Lang's The So-Called Laws of Nature, premiered at the 2001 Bang on a Can Marathon. He is a co-founder of the duo
Non Zero, with saxophonist Brian Sacawa, which has performed American and world premieres of works in concerts at MIT, NYU, the University of
Michigan, the Kerrytown Concert Hall, New York's Tenri Cultural Institute, and Eastern Nazarene College.

Lowell Fuchs


(b. 1993, Gainesville, Georgia) is an avant-garde composer who currently resides in Atlanta, Ga. An explorer of unique sonic synthesis, Fuchs’s curiosity shepherds his compositions in various directions. From experimental music with unspecified ensemble, to art songs with percussion accompaniment, a fascination of timbre, extended techniques, and texture are the cornerstones to many of his compositions. Many of his works encompass a strong symbolic and programmatic undertone, often concerning politics and the human condition.
Fuchs is working on a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Composition at Georgia State University. His principle composition teachers include Robert Scott Thompson (2014- present) and Brent Milam (2013-2014). He also studies closely with composer Nickitas Demos (2012-present) and percussion professor Stuart Gerber (2011-2014). Currently, Fuchs is Georgia State’s SCI (Society of Composer Inc.) Student Chapter President (2014-2015) and has also held the chapter position of Secretary (2013-2014). He is also a University Assistant of GSU’s School of Music and was awarded Lucille Allen Memorial Scholarship (2013-2015). In February 2014 The Voices in Maximilian’s Head, his art song for soprano voice and percussion, was featured on the Southeastern New Music Symposium.

Unnatural Ways, Curt Oren, Chris Childs March 10, 2015
8:00PM - - -

Unnatural Ways



Unnatural Ways is the main project of Brooklyn-based guitarist Ava Mendoza. The group was originally formed in early 2012 in her longtime home of Oakland, CA as a trio with west coast musicians Dominique Leone- keys and Nick Tamburro (Dead Science)- drums. The trio toured steadily in the U.S. and Europe before Mendoza relocated to NY in 2013. Soon after the move, she reformed the group with NY musicians, and the new lineup toured in the U.S., Canada and Europe surrounding performances at the 2014 Victoriaville Festival in Canada and the 2014 Moers Festival in Germany. The current trio of Mendoza- guitar, vox / Tim Dahl (Lydia Lunch, Child Abuse, Yusef Lateef)- bass /Max Jaffe (Normal Love, Killer Bob) has developed a highly personal sound; sharp, heavy, and psychedelic. Drawing from complex rock, avant jazz and warped blues music, the players push the boundaries of their own vocabularies and of the written music to put on powerful and unpredictable live shows. The self-titled Unnatural Ways full-length LP will be issued in Feb. 2015 by the New Atlantis label (William Hooker, Microwaves, Elliott Sharp). A full-length CD release by the new lineup on John Zorn’s Tzadik label is slated for late 2015.

Curt Oren



My music uses circular breathing in order to create melodic loops which I then build upon to create expansive sound environments and develop further into song structures. I have opened for and played with many national touring acts including Calvin Johnson, Tatsuya Nakatani, and Wolf Eyes. I was selected as part of the initial lineup for the Mission Creek Festival in Iowa City and Little Village Magazine from Iowa City describes my music as “immediate and intimate.”

Chris Childs

Virusse, Belarisk, Article Collection, Amulet March 15, 2015
8:00PM - - -
Price:  7

Virusse



Virusse is the solo electronic project of Mindy Stock of Providence, RI. Influenced by and stemming out of the local experimental/noise scene, her songs drip with reverb, pop-encrusted melodies, driving beats, and swirling, distorted synth lines. Her lyrics tell tales of dreaming, doomed love, social anxiety, spirits, and the battle between self love or self destruction.

Belarisk



Belarisk is a project of Lee Edward Tindall, a fresh Providence, RI resident by way of Massachusetts. Lee has been steadily performing solo and with others over the years, with his various projects Zerfallt, Mutation In The Gryd, Aphid Palisades, Astronaut, and more. As Belarisk, Tindall taps into the more melodic side of experimental electronic music, applying his expert-level technical skills to digital and analog synthesizers and effects.
The result is a bold, Americanized interpretation of German school electronics, that not merely repeats the past, but uses its essence to look forward. Belarisk paints with sound in the full spectrum of grey; forging overdriven frenetic malfunction with spacious, tonal glory. Sawtoothed synth lines are tessellated to reflect infinitely, where the sound of electrical current is dissected and manipulated in real-time. Mournful, dark formations of sound occasionally dissipate to reveal the radiant light of possibility.

Article Collection



C. Latina is an electronic musician, video artist, and co-owner of the Private Archive label. Article Collection represents his solo experiments for computer music and improvisational analog electronics. He is slated for a full length tape release on Spanish label Anòmia in late 2014. In the past he has worked with Baritone Saxophonist Davindar Singh and has performed alongside composers and artists such as Mario Diaz de Leon, Frank Bretschneider, Kouhei Matsunaga.

Amulet



Solo electronics from Ian Cone of Suffer Bomb Damage and Lagomorpha.

Marlee Mincher Opening "It's perfectly okay" March 20, 2015
5:00PM - - -

Marlee Mincher is an Atlanta-based ceramicist and multi-media artist. She is currently an artist in residence at Mudfire in Decatur. She previously studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and worked at Harvard University, the SMFA and Roswell Arts Center West. Her work deals with themes of memory and forgetting, impracticality, and impermanence.
It's perfectly okay to want to kill someone. is a full-scale mixed-media installation of a section of Mincher’s childhood home. It is constructed from memory, without the aid of photographs or floorplans. The structure of the space is made from sliced, layered cardboard boxes and craft paper. These elements double as a sign of impermanence and as illogical construction material. The sturdiness of the construction and its clear intention confound their expected use.

Nick Madden: I’ll Die High
February 21st through March 27th

Eyedrum art and music gallery is proud to present “I’ll Die High,” a solo show of work by the Atlanta artist Nick Madden.

I’ll Die High explores themes of physicality, mechanics, and humor in the face of certain death. Madden’s parents are battling life-threatening diseases: cancer and Alzheimer’s. Madden makes use of a variety of media as he takes us through his experience of slowly losing the parents he knew, either through the physical deterioration of the body, or of the slow breakdown of a mind, and makes us acutely aware of the vulnerability and fleeting nature of life and consciousness. He uses art to make sense of the past and a future, acutely aware of the moment before him. Treating the body as a machine that inevitably breaks down and dies, Madden copes with his parents’ conditions by creating playful and touching kinetic and interactive sculptures that awaken with the audience’s participation. Push, pull, and crank each piece to make it come to life in an examination of the bodily changes that Madden sees in his parents.

Nick Madden is an artist and art teacher from Atlanta. He is a recent Hambidge Fellow and a resident of The Creatives Project. Nick has shown work in galleries across the city. I’ll Die High is Madden’s second solo show. Learn more about Nick Madden here:
