ATOM (Senor Coconut) & Tobias this Saturday at the ESAC Launch Party

Electronic Sound + Art Chicago launches with a 2 room multimedia event at the Viaduct Theater in Chicago, featuring CHICAGO/MIDWEST DEBUT performances from two legendary electronic music composers, as well performances curated from a selection of established local artists.

Atom™ and Tobias Freund are veritable living legends of electronic music. Tobias began his career in the early ’80s, mainly using the pseudonym “Pink Elln”. He looks back on a long sequence of music making that has led him from mainstream pop to club music, and then onto the experimental and undefinable. Uwe Schmidt, better known as Atom™, has a similar musical background. He is most well known for his work under the Senor Coconut moniker, but has worked under dozens of other aliases, all with their own sound.

Doors at 9pm 21+
Discounted Advance Tickets via RESIDENT ADVISOR:

The Viaduct Theater

[3.22.12] Roth Mobot at the Colorboration Folk Fest

subVariant live circuit-bending performance duo Roth Mobot is scheduled to play at a free folk music festival presented by the Old Town School of Folk Music, the colorboration Folk Fest

Free Roth Mobot performance in the Loop! We wangled our way into a FREE mini “folk music” festival. Yup, the world is beginning to see that circuit bending is a form of experimental electronic folk music ;-) Roth Mobot is scheduled for 7:30 PM

Roth Mobot is the Chicago based Circuit Bent musical duo of Tommy Stephenson and Patrick McCarthy. Roth Mobot’s invention of “recursive jazz” controls the random juxtaposition of improvised dark ambient drones, languid melodies, randomly discovered rhythms, percussive accidents, the humorous language of toys, and common discarded electronic devices, in what they refer to as “strategic improvisation.”

Circuit Benders In The Loop!
208 S. Wabash, Chicago
Friday, March 23, 3:45 PM – 12:00 AM

Frequencity review from Igloomag and DJ Mix by Chaircrusher

Here is a DJ mix by Chaircrusher combining the tracks from Frequencity with another Chicago based artist, on Klectik Synox.

Igloomag also gave us a nice review.

Though Frequencity doesn’t rely on any one particular audible path, it pushes through new branches of thought — as the cover-art depicts — to unveil an assemblage of electronic music disorder, all hailing from Chicago. Techno, experimental, IDM, post-rock, downtempo, classical, chiptune, electro and acid are all smashed together in a sprite compilation that lightly brushes upon each of these styles.
