You're invited to the first concert in Click's new music series, designed to provide musicians with a venue to experiment with their artforms. "Exploratory Devices" is a double-bill featuring George Langford (Javelin) and 3rdness by Noam Schatz.
Armed with several Critter & Guitari Kaleidoloops, George Langford of the band Javelin creates textural sonic collages and invites you join in this rare, hands-on and improvisatory affair. Audience participation is encouraged.
3rdness is the nom de noise of Noam Schatz, a veteran of the Valley music scene, usually found behind the drums of rock and rolling bands such as The Capitulators and Endless Mike.
Circuit bending is the art of destruction, purposefully breaking toy keyboards and drum machines until they unveil compelling new sounds. The juggling and tossing of stray electrons. The weaving and warping of synthetic tones and noises.
There is an inherent unpredictability in the circuit bent instruments, making them a perfect medium for the improviser. Once the music begins, not even the electrons know how it will turn out.
In former lives, Noam has played with local luminaries Mobius Band, Meathawk and the Meathawks, The Sometimes, and the Sun Parade.
Admission is $10 cash at the door. Beer and wine will be available.
