Electro Bloom – Electronic, ambient and experimental music series
– Tucson Arizona, Saturday December 8th
Baja Arizona-based world renown electronic composer and performer Steve Roach and Tucson’s Galactic Center are curating an ongoing performance series expressing the vibrant and diverse community of electronic, ambient and experimental music artists based in Tucson and surrounding areas.
The Electro Bloom series features a roster of solo artists or groups each presenting a set which morphs into the next artist as the evening evolves. The focus of these audio adventures will draw on hardware based sound creations via analog modular rigs, guitar and instrument looping, processing etc. Laptops are welcomed but encouraged to be part of an interactive live set up. The focus is about real time sound carving, improv and sonic explorations born from the moment and reaching beyond boundaries. Active, deep listening with the audience will be a vital part of the experience.
The upcoming Electro Bloom evening will be Saturday December 8th with Circuitous Vibes & Neglect
Tickets $10 at the door. 35 E. Toole, Tucson 85701
The Circuitous Vibes project aims to create sound palettes that induce a calming positivity through the use of electronic Music. rich in tape looping, reverberation, arppegiating, droning and phasing, this Music conjures up a variety of textures and atmospheres, taking the listener on slowly moving and wandering journeys. through longform recordings or extended live pa sets, circuitous vibes hopes to present Music that moves the listener’s focus away from the immediate and readily apparent, to an ethereal “beyond” of any sort for which the listener is ready.
Neglect (Tucson-based artist and musician Joseph Valentino) is an ambient music project that chronicles the beauty of the American Southwest and Pacific Northwest with sparse, elliptical melodic fragments on guitar and synths. Influenced by sources as diverse as dub, detroit techno, 90’s IDM, and abstracted sound art, Valentino’s music mines the deep emotional resonance and meditative quality of the endlessly repeating ostinato melody, like Wolfgang Voight’s Gas project, Stars Of The Lid, and William Basinski. – Matthew Sweeney, Foreign Accents/Decoder Magazine
