Special Event! Jason Lescalleet / Aaron Dilloway / Fragments Thursday Club Quartet - Wed 8/29 - Now That's Class

Posted by CultJam 
Special Event!
Two of the best tape-manipulating experimental musicians in the world will be performing at Now That's Class on Wednesday, August 29th - Jason Lescalleet and Aaron Dilloway

Local ambient/drone synth wizards Fragments and Thursday Club will open as a quartet, and Nathan Lewis will be spinning records before the show and between sets.

Lescalleet's sound world occupies a space between noise, contemporary composition, and minimal electronics. Using decidedly primitive tactics and equipment (e.g. antiquated reel-to-reel recorders, damaged tape, etc.), his work focuses on extreme frequencies and microscopic audio detail. His live performances are utterly mindblowing.

Jason Lescalleet is an exciting tape-music artist. He's been a member of Due Process, performed and recorded with Keith Rowe, Joe Colley, Jason Kahn, John Hudak, Bhob Rainey and Greg Kelley (both separately and as Nmperign), and most recently Aaron Dilloway and Graham Lambkin, which has yielded unprecedented and glorious results in the electroacoustic music of today. Lescalleet lives and works in the state of Maine.

awesome live set:


AARON DILLOWAY (Ohio - ex-Wolf Eyes; Hanson Records label head)
Phenomenal live performer and recording artist, Aaron utilizes magnetic tape, synths, contact mic growls, and various other electronics and evocative sounds to create experimental noise and electronic sets that tend to start with a slow burn and build to mindmelting climaxes of intense energy and catharsis. A very physical and versatile performer, Aaron has shared the stage and collaborated with a who's who in noise and experimental electronic sound, with audiences likely to walk away from his sets completely dumbfounded.

"Urban guerilla, sociopath, sexual deviant, blasphemer: these are the subversive personas that have dominated noise music since its outgrowth from industrial culture in the '80s. Yet none of them have ever found much resonance with Aaron Dilloway. His myriad projects, from The Beast People to Wolf Eyes, have always reflected his fascination with the trickster, that folkloric rogue and saboteur of law and order. It's a fascination reaching back to the noise pioneer's formative years in the Ann Arbor-Detroit underground of the mid-'90s, a scene whose quirkiness owed a great deal to the Discordian mischief of Sun City Girls, The Residents and Caroliner.

It should come as no surprise then that his most ambitious release to date, a three-years-in-the-making concept album, arrives with the all too fitting title Modern Jester. Over the course of its four sprawling sides, Dilloway relentlessly upends and disrupts listener perception, in particular the either/or logic governing it. His weapon of choice is the tape loop, albeit loopage that is mangled, wire-fried and intensely lo-fi. By constructing repetition-based music riddled with distinctive imperfections, one of the many results Dilloway achieves is a collapsing of the dichotomy between predictability and randomness." - Justin Farrar, Resident Advisor
