On Saturday, March 30th, we are proud to present footwork/glitch artist Diamond Soul, electronic/synth musician Blank Thomas, and experimental electronic musician Galen Tipton (CMH). Doors 7:30pm, cover $5. BYOB, all ages.
About the performances and performers:
Diamond Soul aka Alex Colombo finds footwork music at it’s most warped and abstracted, the underlying triplet rhythms often acting as a ghost floating below the sonics above.
Blank Thomas is Blake Butler, Blake Butler is Blank Thomas. Under this moniker, Butler creates wandering and woozy synthscapes under the intermittent glow of a central control panel glow. Pulling the thread of weary synth lines – sometimes tuned to a trumpet in the lone and dreary wilderness but often unadorned or pitch shifted just below the threshold of our hearing – that float through compositions like ghosts of former tenants with no knowledge that they are dead through the needle of clamoring, clanging post-industrial beats and auxiliary percussion.
galen tipton is a queer nonbinary artist currently based out of Columbus, Ohio. Their work explores relationships between the assumed-to-be “natural” and the “unnatural,” queerness and identity, ethical utopias and eco futurism, the repurposing of waste and excess, as well as the nuances of intimacy between things living and not living. Their work is often childish and triumphant, embracing minimalism and maximalism simultaneously— always with a strong sense of play.
