9:00PM - - - Price: 5
Ambient musician Daniel Klag is a big fan of the Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges-- so much show that his newest record, Twin Labyrinths, is named after the author's, "The Two Kings and the Two Labyrinths." The very brief story, which you can read in its entirety on Miscreant Record's site, reads like a fable, and tells of the arrogance of a Babylonian king, who built a labyrinth which sought to rival God's capacity to "strike confusion and inspire wonder." The music on Twin Labyrinths has a similarly mysterious and mystical vibe to it, eschewing some of the harsher textures Klag toyed with on last year's Inner Earth. Instead, Klag explores mellower drones which meander and transform almost imperceptibly, not unlike the labyrinth of the desert in which (modernist lit spoiler alert) the Babylonian king is abandoned at the end of Borge's story.
As Brainworlds, Atlanta based guitarist Mason Brown works to envelop the listener in sheets of meditative sound and delve deep into the subconscious to explore the hidden relationships between the micro and the macro. Devoid of the constraints of time and gravity, the music of Brainworlds floats in the metaphysical realm where mind and universe coalesce.
Rin Larping is the solo project of Lindsay Smith. She focuses on guitar and bass clarinet. Her past collaborators include Lance Higdon, Andrew Weathers and David Kirby.
Friction DJ and Suffer Bomb Damage member Stephen Fenton will present a rare solo set utilizing his extensive collection of field recordings.
