SANCTUARY SHOW - Operation Noise Toaster - Event 19

Operation Noise Toaster is coming back this month to vibrate eyeballs and modulate your voice in the Sanctuary of Grace Lutheran! Holy Bass! The Trunk Space is our co-host for getting the space.

It's a new space to try and see how the system will work, with some great acts playing with sounds that will alter your consciousness at low and high frequencies. Come out for a now infamous experience you won't normally see at other events!

Acts:

marci.dh
Casual Alien
Majestic Dubs with Ed Skymall
Wayward Sun

As usual, open mic and jam is possible. Additions and changes may happen, so check back.

Come check out our particular form of sensory assault and see how it all works in a space we haven't tried out yet.

Throwaway

Throwaway

Throwaway is a lady with a paper bag over her face. She is the rock goddess of legends.. Throwaway is an avant-rock phenomenon designed to melt your ears, minds, and hearts, fry them on kabobs over the bonfire, and feed them back to you. Long ago, from the depths of the streaming ocean, a single-celled organism changed the course of history as it slithered slowly towards the land. Now, millions of years later, its ancestors gather at the holy rock venues to pay tribute with a strange new version of rock and roll.

Haunted by a mysterious woman with a brown paper bag for a head, acclaimed  guitarist Kirsten Carey created Throwaway, an art rock / no wave duo that acrobatically leaps around virtuosic riffs and unexpected rhythms. Throwaway’s electric energy is “absolutely brilliant” (Soundsphere), with “aerodynamic rock-grit flavors of the likes of Primus or Deerhoof” (eCurrent). The masked namesake of the band is surreally represented in performances through live visuals.

Throwaway released a self-titled EP in 2015 (CD only), followed by two 7”s: “Milk Song / Family Cry” (mixed by Jonathan Snipes of clipping.) and "Bonathan Jyers / Exotic Bird," which was featured on Detroit's CW50. Their witty, bizarre music videos are gaining a reputation all their own, with features in Impose Magazine, Make Weird Music, eCurrent, and Imperfect Fifth. In 2019, Throwaway will release their debut album and embark on their first international tour - to Japan.

Kirsten Carey's guitar playing was featured on the clipping. song "Stab Him in the Throat" for the soundtrack of the Emmy Award-winning TV series Rick and Morty. Carey has a duo with MacArthur Fellow Tyshawn Sorey and has additionally shared the stage with Elliott Sharp, Okkyung Lee, and more.

Tatsuya Nakatani w/ experimental video, New Sight

Tatsuya Nakatani w/ experimental video, New Sight

Solo Nakatani Set plus Collaborative Live Score
With locals:
Windy Boijen (banjos)
Seth Kasselman (synth/clarinet)

TATSUYA NAKATANI live sound score project:
featuring David Andree’s experimental video, New Sight.

For this performance, Nakatani improvises a live score while screening Andree’s experimental video work, New Sight. Inspired by accounts of blind individuals gaining their sight later in life, the video explores the interplay of light, shape, and movement within a non- linear narrative. Nakatani’s score attaches a voice to the vision, and together, sound and image move between form and formlessness, creating an intimate portrait of revelation.
David Andree on his video work, New Sight-

“Inspired by accounts of blind individuals gaining their sight later in life, the video work explores the interplay of light, shape, and movement as it fluctuates between abstraction and recognizable form.

Traditional lenses are not used in favor of exploring more direct manipulations of light. Light is focused through the use of self-made apertures including pinholes or using my own hands to direct the light. Using the body to focus light allows for the aperture to fluctuate in real time, allowing in more or less light, much like our own eyes do. This produces effects that are reminiscent of how it feels to open your eyes first thing in the morning or to squint at a bright light. Mirrors are used to redirect light, creating multiple viewpoints, and layers visuals in real time, further complicating the immediate comprehension of visual information.

Elements of landscape often appear throughout the work. I am attracted to the contemplative nature of the landscape’s gradual changes, vastness of space, varied organic forms, and atmospheric effects. I find its elements beautiful and simultaneously menacing. I strive to amplify these aspects through my own manipulation of focus, composition, exposure, movement, and layering.

Both sound and video move forward through time. Their changes imply a narrative however abstract it may feel. My hope is that the visuals combine with sound poetically to create a unique narrative structure for each person as they interpret the work, and that the emotive impact, and fluctuation between abstraction and representational form, provides new and unfamiliar experiences, striving to create novel, unanticipated aspects for appreciation.”
