On Friday, March 23rd, we are proud to present experimental synth musician John Trudeau (MA), multi-instrumentalist/composer Lisa Bella Donna (CMH), and experimental/ambient project The Jesus Fish Experience (CMH). Doors 7pm, cover $5. BYOB, all ages.
About the performers:
Hailing from the forests of Western Massachusetts, John Trudeau combines classical training with Berlin-style sequencing of analog synthesizers to create transfixing melodies and hypnotic soundscapes. From an early age, John had undergone rigorous classical training, and has since combined his early influences with the more contemporary stylings of progressive rock. With an impressive array of keyboards in tow, he will be performing an arrangement of his latest album, “Ascent”.
Lisa Bella Donna is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, modular synthesist, clinician, all around sonic sorceress. She currently works with EYE, Descendre, Earthquaker Devices, Simone Weißenfels, Scotty Bottcher, Elliot Levin, Juan Alderate, Jamie Stillman, and many musicians and artists all throughout USA and Europe.
The Jesus Fish Experience presents a lush marriage of dissonance and harmony, where otherworldly soundscapes blend seamlessly with hypnotic rhythms and haunting melodies. Minimalist, and yet still intense and emotive, their most recent album “Magnitudes Of Infinity” eschews (to a degree) the nihilism found in previous releases, and instead looks outward towards a strange reality, in which empiricism, mythology, spiritualism, and the cold reach of science uneasily reside together. There may be more philosophical questions than answers presented by this album, but trust me, gnosis has never sounded this good.
