Fri. April 20th  . Eras, Lief Hall, Prince Shima

.: Eras, Lief Hall, Prince Shima @ Copper Owl Apr 20 2018 - Apr 20th @ Copper Owl
1800 - 2100
tba at the door only.
ERAS ~ L.A. Skirting the fringes of many celebrated music scenes in Los Angeles, electronic composer Nathaniel Eras links Eastern rhythmic and tonal ideas with dark dizzying beats, and an impeccable indie sensibility. These bottom-heavy modern club structures are balanced melodically and manifest in contrast to Eras' affection for exploring off-the-grid tones and droning soundscapes. The resulting mixture is an intoxicating work of unique electronic pop culled from synergic experiments that give voice to Eras' shadowy productions. Interested in exploring the ambiguous sounds between notes and non-traditional scales, This exotic melodic approach meshes well with the Southeast Asian percussive elements that are woven into Eras' expansive palette - inferring IDM mutations of UK Bass, Footwork, Garage, House, and Techno. https://soundcloud.com/eras ...

The band the was formed during the winter months of 2016. After an ongoing, jam inspired collaboration of drummer Scott Sparrow and guitarist Oliver Sandberg during their university years in BC, bassist Lauren Giorgio was introduced to the project, and Speak Easy was conceived. The group combines moody psychedelic rock with an eclectic sound, which has been compared to John Lennon - if he’d never met Yoko Ono.

Pretty Good Not Bad & The fifty fifty arts collective present: Merzbow & Balázs Pándi with Annunaki ---- Merzbow For over thirty years, Merzbow (aka Masami Akita) has been the biggest and most recognizable figure on the international noise scene. Since 1980, he has released over 400 recordings, and has collaborated with various artists. There is no need to argue: Merzbow stands as the most important artist in noise music. The favorite moniker of Japan's Masami Akita appears on hundreds of albums. The name comes from German artist Kurt Schwitters Kurt Schwitters famous work Merzbau, which he also called The Cathedral of Erotic Misery. Akita's choice reflects his fondness for junk art (through Schwitter's collage method) and his fascination with ritualized eroticism, namely in the form of fetishism and bondage. All these elements constitute the Merzbow persona. ---- Balázs Pándi ... more...
