[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.”

Jon Monteverde aka XYZYR_KX on the free, Chicago-based Frequencity compilation nabbed the “Angriest Reader of the Week” on Angry Asian blog. Hooray! While its nice to get nominated for anything special, we here personally don’t find Jon angry *at all*. In fact, he’s pretty cool and committed to his work. Check out one of his live performances at Darkroom:
