FINALLY. a chance to *almost* fulfil the X-files Reboot bill raincheck. In other words: a damn fine night of spooky happenings, unresolved sexual tension, and interplanetary takeout.  

The Alien Autopsies Covered In Cat Hair and the LSD Vending Machine Ensemble From Colubus OH:
"some kind of extraterrestrial business-dad performance ensemble with synthesizers, saxophones, garbage instruments and leafblowers"

trauma salon : resuscitation & rapture

Thursday, September 24th 2015

feedback, spectacle, suffering. we are in constant need of healing but how to heal what we cannot feel? can we heal what we see/hear/speak or is this only re/dislocation?
the path of greatest resistance and the path of greatest intensity are not the same path. intensity passes quickly. resistance doesn't. however they are bound and to truly understand wherein and why rebirth is necessary:

installment 7 :

Chris Carlone

WILD TORUS creates ritual-happenings that activate a liminal space-time, which allows the artists and audience members alike to collectively regard the state of contemporary reality in a single, charged instance. The coming together of WT's clashing identities, invented tools, and cryptic semiology erupts into an extreme, dystopian spectacle. Indeed, this can be a wild and traumatic experience. Yet, following the toroidal energy flow of the universe, the effects of a WT ritual come full circle to ultimate healing and rebirth.

DYBBUK, what is it Leon? I left the door open. We elected him President. They named her Jane. Prepared percussion and saxophone by David Grollman and Nathaniel Morgan.

TRASH STACK is Ed RosenBerg (Bass Sax), Jay Sorce (Electric Guitar) and Dennis Sullivan (Percussion/Voice). This new power trio will present a new 3 movement work composed in June of 2015. Using a text (Still Electric) written by Providence hip hop artist, B Dolan, this work deals in themes of loss of loved ones, self, faith and rebuilding your space in the world when it all burns down. Part spoken word, part electroacoustic exploration, part earsplitting thrash. Our generation is apocalypse ready.

This is HIGH-ly experiMENTAL! D1G1TAL SHAMAN L0DGE is a 24-HOUR ritual enactment of digital consciousness, enacting virtual into real and spiritual into the virtual. The Digital Spirit Cycle will begin with a departure ritual in the early evening and end with an arrival ritual at the same time the next day. The greater public is encouraged to attend the opening and closing event. Individuals are able to stay for the hours in between, but must participate with the shamans. For some activities the PPL wall will be opened for a viewing from the street. Throughout the night, following morning, and afternoon WILD TORUS & Select Shamans will enter altered states of being, second lives, and second selves in an elongated happening / performance ritual. D1G1TAL SHAMAN L0DGE will make contact with the spirtual core of the Net and build a repository of psychic energy. Together, we will create a unique church of digital nativity.

WORLDS W/OUT RECURSION: Lesionread // kristachuwan // VV/LD TØR∇S

Tuesday, April 22nd 2014



KRISTACHUWAN Buffalo, NY based electronic musician & producer. Kristachuwan creates beats and complex chord changes, and mixes in live improv saxophone with analog fx to build a lush colorful atmosphere with glitching textures.

VV/LD TØR∇S is the eccentric brainchild of female and male counterparts and their collaborating spawn, on a descent into an apocalyptic abyss of digital and sculptural artifice, working out of Capitol Beltway inbreeding, in a post-Cold War malaise, between clashing Russian bloodlines, mental contortion in the American South, abandoned wormholes in Castilian language, gradual suburban numbing, urban hyper-stimuli, etc, etc..

If you dare, leave your cell phone with us for the duration of this mini-fest. Set it to vibrate. We will hang these sobjects from the ceiling, subtly vibrating moons, commemorating the focus of performances past, present, future (anterior)

The Sobject exists in perpetual substantive eclipse: more s/object by turns and degrees" --NOTES ON CONCEPTUALISMS, Vanessa Place and Robert Fitterman, Ugly Duckling Presse, 2013. p. 38 (7b.)
