8:30PM - 12:00AM
Price:  $5
RHINOCTOPUS was Creative Loafing's pick for Best Local Experimental Act for 2003 and 2004. The Atlanta-based group, formed in 2001, consists of Steven Taylor, Gabe Hines, and Paige Taylor. Rhinoctopus merges digital and analog instrumentation with video to create a unique and indefinable performance. Their musical influences are derived from a varied array of artists: Laurie Anderson, Brian Eno, Meatbeat Manifesto, The Orb, Pink Floyd, Radiohead, and Skinny Puppy.

SYN_SIB continue their stealth invasion of their hometown with a return engagement at Eyedrum. syn_sib's laptop/synth/processed voice combination projects a tactile groove onto the senses that brings out the wild cat in even the gentlest kitten. Their manifesto:

2. a value system predicated on textural harmonics
3. the emotional underpinnings of clashing sonic experience

AARON BENOY: RUINS IN ASCII video installation
A somewhat absurd video sculpture made of computer hardware so old it is incapable of displaying anything but text. Playing on the 9" paper-white phosphor Point-of-Sale terminal display is an infinite loop of 180 distinct 7-second video clips of various abandoned, ruined, or otherwise vacant buildings and infrastructure. Locations include the inner depths of the New York subway, the derilect towers of Bangkok's "tiger economy," Atlanta's "combined sewer overflow" tunnels, the secret bunkers of WWII Berlin and the infamous World Trade Center. The imagery traces an eerie, shifting borderline between text that does not resolve into stable language and visual information that will not quite resolve into stable images. Very cool; for more information visit ascii.pdp10.org
