BROOKLYN, NEW YORK (March 6, 2010) On April 1, 2010, BAC Gallery presents A Glitch Music Eventfeaturing performances by the electronic music duo Aerostatic and the electronic collectiveLove Like Deloreans with Video artist Jon Williams. This event will be held from 6:30-8:30pm in conjunction with the group exhibition Glitch Generation, during the Dumbo 1st Thursday Gallery Walk.
Love Like Deloreans performance for A Glitch Music Eventwill incorporate circuit-bent toys, an algorithmically generated sound installation piece, a re-appropriated noise generator originally owned by the NavalUnderwaterSystemsCenter, and found sound from AM/FM radio broadcasts amongst improvised and composed electronic soundscapes. Williams will orchestrate a live video installation in which the motion of idyllic pixel-art trains racing across an isometric Central European landscape drives the throbbing patterns of simple cellular automata i.e. Conway's "Game of Life" to create a complicated interactive tapestry. Aerostatic will compose and perform a hybrid style of electronic music that is atmospheric, ambient, microbeat and downtempo with breakcore/grindcore sensibilities.
Glitch Generation is a group exhibition curated by Michele Jaslow and Spring Hofeldt featuring artworks rooted in mistakes, either intentional or found, including "glitches" in the wiring of our brains. Some participating artists have created a unique environment to produce a malfunction in an otherwise stable system, while others have happened upon a glitch by chance. The exhibition, which is up through June 25, also includes a Video Screening on May 6.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Love Like Deloreans is a Brooklyn-based experimental music collective comprised of members Lorna Kirer, Peter Pearson and Derek Muro. The trio originally hails from Milwaukee and now resides in the artist enclave of Bushwick. Born of synthesizer dreams and drum machine wishes, Love Like Deloreans draws from the heady krautrock of bands like Cluster to the infectious wish-i-could-stop-dancing grooves of 80's new wave, bubblegum and disco to create a sound world that is somewhere between a submarine ride on europa and the best prom night ever. www.myspace.com/lovelikedeloreans
