———- 8< ----------- 8< ----------- ■ A.F. JONES ■ https://afjones.bandcamp.com/ A.F. Jones is an undersea acoustician, audio engineer, and operator of Laminal Audio and Marginal Frequency. Recently relocated to Washington from California, he has released a number of recordings including solo compositions and collaborations with the likes of Steve Flato, Nick Lesley, Peter Vincent, Barry Chabala, Derek Rogers, and others. For this concert he will be joined by Mathieu Ruhlmann and Joda Clément. ■ DASHES ■ A sound collaboration between John Brennan and Elisa Ferrari, their performance pays homage to the incidental and ephemeral microtonal exchanges that occur through layering sustained dissonant frequencies, live samples, subtle movements and vocalization of text borrowed from dictionaries, language, and sound manuals. Their improvised performances combine sounds of amplified objects, feedback manipulation, modified percussion, field recordings and voice. ■ JUDITH HAMANN ■ https://soundcloud.com/judithhamann Judith Hamann is an Australian-born cellist currently based between Melbourne and San Diego. Her performance practice stretches across various genres, encompassing elements of improvised, art, experimental, and popular music. Judith has studied contemporary repertoire with many cellists, including Charles Curtis and Séverine Ballon. She is developing a strong practice in improvisation through collaborative projects and performances, both in Australia and internationally, including Hammers Lake (with Carolyn Connors) and Golinski/Hamann/Dunscombe trio. She has worked with artists and ensembles, including Oren Ambarchi, ELISION Ensemble, Ellen Fullman, Graham Lambkin, Jon Rose, Not Yet It's Difficult, Ilan Volkov, and La Monte Young and Marian Zazeela. Judith is a founding member of Golden Fur and one-half of the immersive duo project Cello II (with Anthea Caddy). She is a champion of new and rarely performed music and immersive approaches to concert presentation and engages with a range of interdisciplinary and experimental projects, including the Amper&nd project (Korea/Australia) and collaborative work with the visual artists Keith Deverell and Sabina Marselli. She has worked with many composers directly in presenting their work, including Natasha Anderson, Richard Barrett, Wojtek Blecharz, David Chisholm, Marco Fusinato, Liza Lim, Anthony Pateras, Timothy McCormack and Tashi Wada. ■ MAN FOREVER ■ http://www.johnwilliamcolpitts.com John Colpitts founded and plays in Oneida, People of the North, and Man Forever. He’s also played drums with Laurie Anderson, Royal Trux, Yo La Tengo, Boredoms, Spiritualized, Damo Suzuki, Rhys Chatham, So Percussion, Philip Glass, Stephen Malkmus, Akron Family, Lee Ranaldo, Silver Apples, and William Basinski, among others. He has given composition workshops and lectures to students at Middlebury College, Brooklyn College, The New School, NYU, MIT, Bard, Dedham Country Day School and at the So Percussion Summer Institute at Princeton University on the subject of creativity, drumming, percussion, record production, DIY approaches to a music career and composition strategies.

Event: Gamelan Bike Bike – Album Release Show w/ Special Guests
When: Sat, Nov 11 19:30 – 22:30
Description: Join us for an evening of experimental gamelan music and help us celebrate the release of Gamelan Bike Bike’s first album!

The release contains Bike Bike’s original music created over the past 4 years and features compositions by Robyn Jacob, George Rahi, Shawn Sekiya, Tony Kastelic, and I Putu Gede Sukaryana (Balot).

Joining us for the album release is special guest I Putu Gede Sukaryana (Balot), who we are extremely grateful to have as our teacher for the next 8 months. He is the co-founder of Insitu Recordings and will be performing the Vancouver premiere of his piece “Anomali” from the Insitu catalog, with support from members of Gamelan Bike Bike.

Additionally, the evening is opened with new works by Vancouver-based percussionist Greg Samek.

About the ensemble:
Gamelan Bike Bike draws its musical inspiration from Bali, Indonesia and its raw materials from the scrap metal bins of Vancouver. In 2012, members of the group collected over 100 discarded bicycle frames to build the instruments. The colorful metal scraps, configured into a series of metallophones instruments, created a platform for new experimentation with gamelan music on the West Coast. The ensemble has presented performances at the Western Front, the Surrey Art Gallery, the Vancouver Folk Music Festival and is releasing Hi-Ten, a collection of original works with the Indonesia-based art collective and label Insitu Recordings on November 11, 2017.

Doors at 7:30pm, Music will begin promptly at 8

PLEASE NOTE: THE SPACE WILL BE FLIPPED POST-SHOW FOR A TECHNO EVENT HOSTED BY BOUND BY SOUND: https://www.facebook.com/events/374444529652763/

Tidal ~ Signal is a festival of exploratory music and sound taking place on Unceded Coast Salish Territories (Vancouver, BC). The event aims to be inclusive, accessible and anti-elitist, and features a diverse array of musics encompassing noise, ambient, electronic, drone, experimental techno, improvised, sound and performance art. As organizers, we operate from a core set of anticolonial feminist ethics, and seek to disrupt patterns of gender disparity in music programming of all genres. Our aesthetic mandate is reflective of this, with a particular focus on highlighting women, transgender, genderqueer and intergender artists working in left-field genres.

This year’s event is presented in partnership with Quiet City.

LIVE PERFORMANCES //

★ gran am
https://granam.bandcamp.com

gran am is an interdisciplinary artist based on the unceded territory of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations. She combines aural and visual mediums to create improvised, experimental performances which are motivated by themes of idealized femininity, and normalized oppression.

★ Sabrina Schroeder
https://sabrinaschroeder.com

Sabrina Schroeder writes music for mixed ensembles, often using transducers and self-built mechanics as integrated instruments in live performance. She’s been an active member of composer-performer collectives presenting scored and improvised music, a back-up-band coordinator for teens in mental health housing, and works collaboratively in a range of interdisciplinary settings.

★ Sasha Mannequin
https://sashamannequin.bandcamp.com/

Sasha Mannequin makes club music that tells stories about displacement, paranoia and survival. She works with modular synthesis, programed drums, snippits of sampled conversations, and her own voice to create her songs, which take cues from synthpop, techno, grime, jungle and more. Her latest album, (((echoes))) is about fractured connection with jewishness, focusing on telling the stories of jewish socialist history through recontectualized Yiddish songs, and reacting to the reinvigorated anti semetic far-right. Sasha also plays with band Crazy Bitch Separatist, who make pop anthems for survivors, dissociated ravers, and of course, our beloved Crazy Bitches. Expect Qwerty keyboard mashing, synth gurgles and maybe a heartfelt ballad or two from her second-ever solo set, which she is thrilled to preform at this year’s Tidal ~ Signal.

★ REAL ADULT (NYC)
https://corybracken.bandcamp.com/album/real-adult-fake-person

You know how in The Charlie Brown and Snoopy show when the teachers talk to them but all they hear is a trombone with a plunger mute? That’s what everything in the world sounds like to me. Nevertheless, it’s a privilege to be selected to pound the erasers.

★ Wallgrin
https://www.wallgrin.com/

With reverence for female mythological figures, Wallgrin delves into the space between extremes of beauty and dissonance, expressed through layers of strings and exploratory human vocals. Self-produced recorded material incorporates a variety of eclectic instruments, drum machines, and field recordings, while live performances consist mainly of violin and vocal electronic manipulation. Wallgrin is now working on a debut album entitled Bird/Alien, due for release in 2018.
