Please join us for an evening of experimental electronic sound, featuring two visiting duos from Texas and Chicago's own Brian Case.

Performing together since 2000, Colin Andrew Sheffield (samples, processing) & James Eck Rippie (turntables, samples, processing) (Austin TX) are an improvising duo who sculpt primarily with commercial recordings to turn aspects of plunderphonics, glitch, noise, and sound art into a challenging form of abstract beauty. Their work together has always been about their dialogue within a given piece, unfolding surprising threads of musicality amid stream-of-consciousness narratives.

Alex Keller and Sean O'Neill (Austin TX) have created performances and installation pieces together since 2015. Using field recordings, vintage telephone test equipment, and magnetic oscillators, among other tools, their work addresses the agents and artifacts of change in the urban (and acoustic) realms. The resultant audio is a potent brew, seamlessly merging drone, musique concrète, phonography, and various electronic intrusions.

Brian Case (Chicago) is an experimental musician and a guitarist in different bands (90 Day Men, Acteurs, Bambi Kino Duo, Disappears). With his solo project he enters the fields of sample/loop-based electronic abstract ambient."
