After Hours show! It's a collaborative experiment in music making. The show offers attendees a chance to participate in the creation of a wholly unique piece of abstract music by manipulating guitar pedals placed throughout the room.
The basic concept is simple: musicians’ instruments will be connected, by a string of guitar pedals, to their amplifiers on the other side of the room.
As the musicians improvise, attendees will be free to walk amongst the
pedals, twisting dials, sliding faders, and otherwise manipulating the
final sound. We hope to create a space charged with an almost palpable
electric current of sound.
The show can be seen as a sort of
extension of Glad Cloud, a monthly ambient music showcase organized by
Ben Mjolsness at The Whistler. Mjolsness assumed the role of curator for
this show, hand picking nearly all of the evening’s performers.
The audio from the evening’s performance will be recorded and released
as a limited edition cassette tape, the inaugural release from saki
records, the store’s new in-house record label.
The show is
co-presented by Glad Cloud and begins at 8pm, Saturday June 30. As with
everything at saki, the event is totally free, all ages, and BYOB.
