Beatrix*Jar is Minneapolis sound art duo Bianca Pettis (Beatrix) and Jacob Aaron Roske (JAR). Formed in March 2005, the duo travels extensively spreading the good word of Toy Recycling & D.I.Y. electronics.
In the spirit of Fluxus, King Tubby, Ted the electrician, Kraftwerk, John Oswald, the showtime pizza animatronic singers & so many others, Beatrix*JAR create sound collages with some beats and fucked up toy sounds thrown in there for good measure.
Join them at Eyedrum for a unique fuzzy sound collage dance party that includes a circuit bending demonstration and hands-on performance.
"...a night of new sound that will change your idea of music forever!"
- Sarah Carter, The Buchtelite - Akron, Ohio
"...sound-art team Beatrix*JAR are not only on tour to bring you their music, they're offering tutorials in the art of D.I.Y. sound-making, called circuit bending, the practice is a means of manipulating new sounds from recycled battery-operated electronic toys."
