On Friday, April 13th we are proud to present experimental musician/composer/performance artist Benjamin Miller, experimental electronic musicians David Reed and Ty Owen’s duo project Fatal Gaze, and microtonal avant-goth musician Lilith Grace. Doors 7:30pm, admission $5-$10. BYOB, all ages.
About the performers:
Ben Miller is an American rock and avant garde guitarist born and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and now based in the NYC-metro area. He has formerly been a member of such Detroit/Ann Arbor bands as Sproton Layer, Destroy All Monsters, and non-fiction. Destroy All Monsters, in particular, still a cult favorite, was a big part of the proto-punk, punk, and post-punk Detroit rock scene, featuring such bands as the MC5, the Stooges, Sonic’s Rendezvous Band, and Up. Currently Miller performs solo with his self-deconstructed multiphonic guitar and conducts / composes for NYC’s Sensorium Saxophone Orchestra.
Columbus experimentalists David Reed and Ty Owen bring their decades of solo experiments together for the first time as Fatal Gaze. Combining analog synthesis and computer based sound manipulations Fatal Gaze projects an enveloping field of dark lingering gloom inspired by horror films, music concrete, and the anxiety of the modern world.
