Wednesday, 5/20/15 @ Machines With Magnets THOMAS DIMUZIO + PEDESTRIAN DEPOSIT + WORK/DEATH + BLEVIN BLECTUM + NELL GROSS + V.SINCLAIR THOMAS DIMUZIO Don’t miss this rare opportunity to experience the immersive and mind-altering electronics of sonic maestro Thomas Dimuzio. Piloting the magical Buchla 200e synthesizer and his system of live sampling, Dimuzio’s sonicisms will sweep, seethe, soothe, saturate, and scintillate your aural sensibilities. Performing as a soloist, Dimuzio will also be joined by some very special guests along the way (M.C. Schmidt, Arcane Device, Blevin Blectum, Nick Didkovsky, and Will-R). PEDESTRIAN DEPOSIT BLEVIN BLECTUM WORK/DEATH Work/Death TW: @WORKDEATH NELL GROSS V.SINCLAIR --- “Attending a Thomas Dimuzio performance is like lying underneath a web of freeway bridges with your eyes closed; blocking out all visuals except the brief daggers of light that flicker with each passing car. There is a sense of probable dread—metal, wooden or cigarette debris from the vehicles could fly off and injure you—but also one of hypnotized calm, thanks to the amplified hum of Michelin and Goodyear against greased concrete.” —Cameron MacDonald, Pitchfork San Francisco-based Thomas Dimuzio is a true sonic alchemist who can seemingly create music events out of almost anything, Dimuzio's listed sound sources on his various releases include everything from 'modified 10 speed bicycle' and 'resonating water pipe' to short-wave radios, loops, feedback, samplers, synthesizers and even normal instruments such as guitar, clarinet and trumpet. Long regarded as a musical pioneer for his innovative use of live sampling and looping techniques, Dimuzio has earned a deserved reputation worldwide as an avant-garde sound artist in touch with the aesthetic pulse of time and technology. Inspired as much by John Cage as Led Zeppelin, Dimuzio's music is a true sonic excursion that transports the listener into other worldly aural realms. “His work has a narrative, filmic tug that will draw you into its dark corners, ears alert… brilliant and rarely less than entertaining.” —Peter Marsh, BBC Dimuzio's recordings have been released internationally by RéR Megacorp, Asphodel, RRRecords, No Fun Productions, Sonoris, Drone Records, Record Label Records, Odd Size, Seeland, and other labels. Among his collaborators are Chris Cutler, Dan Burke, Joseph Hammer, Alan Courtis, Nick Didkovsky, Due Process, Voice of Eye, Fred Frith, David Lee Myers, 5uu's, Matmos, Wobbly and Negativland.
