Patrick Stacey's Homage to Ohm
To create his elaborate tribute to early
electronics, Homage to Ohm, Baltimore's Patrick Stacey created his own sound sontrol station and sampled segments from the Ellipsis Arts compilation "OHM: the early gurus of electronic music" as source material for his own original work. Using computer based digital signal processing technology, he methodically extracted hundreds of sound bites from throughout the collection. After loading all this raw source material into a performance based application from Ableton software called "Live," Patrick slowly put together a piece that is at once an improvisation, a tribute, a science and an art. Check out sound & video clips on his website.

BLK w/ Bear
DC sound/visual artisan JS Adams - will perform a solo set of turntable-loop compositions. BLK w/ BEAR's collaboration with London's Rothko [ 'wish for a world without hurt' ] has garnered international acclaim and airplay and was a 2004 Outmusic nominee for Best Instrumental Recording. His 2004 limited-edition 12-inch release ['fahrenheit_drafts' on Trace Recordings UK] was composed of tracks used for QUEERING SOUND 04.
Additionally, BLK w/ BEAR's 'mystery' contribution to the Kuma-Chan Records 'Hot Hands: A Tribute to Throwing Muses and Kristin Hersch' compilation disc ... a decidedly warped deconstruction of 'garoux de larmes'... is now available at the iTunes on-line store. All Music Guide said: "His creations use everything from dissonance to ambient sounds to offer towering, constantly unfolding terrains of sonic inquiry." http://www.artbear.com
