this friday in K77

Craig Hilton (North Carolina)
has been composing sound via elecroacoustic transformation and live improvisation for over 13 years. Trained originally as a classical guitarist, the sonic possibilities of "musique concrete" and other methods of sound manipulation/composition, led him to further study the primary idea of sound itself.
For this night in Salon Bruit Craig will be playing guzheng and live electronics.

PenelopeX (Italy/Berlin)
Marta Zapparoli aka Penelopex; born in the underground scene of Bologna. Her natural and cultivated sense of rhythm, her technical experience and her vivid curiosity led her in a direction of new digital experiences. From October 2006 she lives and plays in Berlin. “Ambient and Human emotions in broken melodies and noise is the place that I find. Using field recordings taken from the nature and the city life. The noise coming from the external world, comes leaked and translates in poetry vision creating oneiric sonorous landscapes.” The borders of the acoustic and the audible can be expanded beyond the threshold of perception.

Promute (North Carolina)
After playing in several different bands of varying degrees of success and styles, I chose to turn on the tape recorder and let out whatever I could pass thru the speakers. Promute started as a blank canvas in 2000 and thus far I have held onto the master tapes, not letting anyone into the chaos that is my brain. I have recently relocated to a quieter place and have decided to share my project with others. Look out for the RAST FIGMENT Ep next month, as well as the PROMUTE official website. RAST FIGMENT contains 5 songs and is over 60 minutes in length. It is an homage to the destructive beauty of nature and noise.
