Heidi Diehl and The Spirit Battery
supernatural presence in electronic experience
Carl Diehl will be present with the mysterious rabbit phone.
Special performance by THE TEMPLE OF EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL LIGHT.
Operating in the realm of suspended disbelief The Spirit Battery relishes the possibility of supernatural presence in electronic experience. The glitches, noises, and other aberrant signals that emmanate from malfunctioning technology suggest, if only momentarily, ghosts in the machine. The Spirit Battery seeks to extend this period of spectral speculation by entangling the curious gestures of malfunction with calculated digital techniques, audio collage, and the mysterious 'rabbit mouse-o-phone'.
Featuring members of NYC's psychedelic noise-folk Wooden Wand and the Vanishing Voice plus a vidsonic sorcerer from The JiRCs (eugene,or), The Spirit Battery crafts otherworldly visitations with their mish-mash of audio-visual debris.
plus short videos by Jesse England and Ian Coronado harvested from the depths of an electronic oblivion.
