Southern Illinois Noise Summit

>> Sunday, May 17, 2009

This is a series of live recordings made at the Southern Illinois 2009 Noise Summit, held during WDBX-FM's "It's Too Damn Early" radio broadcast. Cloud Cuckoo Band opens with improvisational electroacoustic noise, followed by DaveX's harsh solo set. A noise ensemble of Glass Pyramid, Gorilla Heritage, Andrew Crook, Cosmic Twilight Pimps, and Alex Ryterski follows-- this is 8 total performers, using a huge variety of instrumentation. Very wild stuff. Two solo sets from Karthik Kakarala follow; using processed vocals, guitar, percussion, and small objects. The 8-member ensemble re-organizes for the next track, a more focused improvisational set with synth, multiple guitars, vast amounts of effects, and percussion. DaveX and Karthik Kakarala close with a duo, harsh noise and abused guitar. A short introduction from DaveX opens each disc.

This summit was recorded on a 2 cdr set which I received via email. The sender provided us with FLAC format but I also uploaded it on mp3 in case you want to download smaller sized version. I'm not going to write wall of text but in short there are some very good sounds on these cds so I suggest you check this one out.

Hey thx for posting this-- I'd have mentioned it earlier, but my area actually got hit by an "inland hurricane" so everything is f'ed up here, haha.

Wow! Sweet shit, and I can't wait to do it again.
