EARBRAINS: Sonic Research Underground
Friday, September 9, 2011, 8 PM
Studio 2
Troy, NY

A rare underground concert of experimental and live electronic music in an above ground setting

Experimental music micro-cultures fly beneath the radar in nearly every US city—functioning as hidden incubators or underground sonic research labs for aesthetics and technology. The outcomes almost universally bubble up to the surface, popularized by more mainstream acts. Performances happen in tiny clubs, non-profit galleries, people's houses, bookstores, and on college campuses. This has been the fertile ground for generations from which experimental music artists and audiences have evolved.

This show kicks off our fall events, featuring:

- Rock/noise homespun electronics by Fat Worm of Error
- Analog synthesis by composer, performer, and record distributor Keith Fullerton Whitman
- David Shively performing Max Neuhaus' electronic classics from the 50s
- Live electronics by Caboladies
- The unique duo of Jason Lescalleet and Graham Lambkin

Evelyn's Café will open at 7 PM with a full menu of meals, snacks, and beverages as well as a selection of wines. Service continues between sets and after the event. Parking is available in the Rensselaer parking lot on College Avenue.
