John Bischoff will perform a set of solo electronic pieces built from intrinsic features of the electronic medium: high definition noise components, tonal edges, digital shading, and non-linear motion. The set will incorporate a custom analog circuit of his own design. As he activates the circuit, the resulting sounds are analyzed in real-time and used to inform an extended computer-synthesis response. A binding together of the analog and digital realms is the result, the unique characteristics of each medium crossbred and counterpoised in time to form a hybrid sensibility. Pieces include Circuit Combine, Visibility Study, and Surface Effect.
Las Sucias is Riot-Reggaeton Noise but its many other things too, multi-layered chaotic experimental explosion of rhythms and anti-patriarchal lyrics drenched in noise sauce. Its a feminist reaction to reggaeton and other latino sounds we were brought up with, but also embracing them with nostalgia after living in the US for so long. Embrace your inner chaos.
