Avant Ghetto Presents: Container | Unicorn Hard-On | Laser Poodle | Moemlien

Unicorn Hard-On
Laser Poodle

Public Assembly
70 North 6th Street

Container is Nashville, TN resident Ren Schofield's experimental excursion into the world of beat oriented electronic music. Container’s first full length album was just released on the Cleveland/Vienna based label Spectrum Spools and has triggered response such as: "like Surgeon on DMT covering Cybotron jams with a bubble machine", and "Container has created a twisted, time-warping and insolently fucked lo-fi techno record that has to rank among the very best full-length statements of 2011."


For many years now Unicorn Hard-On has been infiltrating the American and European underground with her unusual style of animal inspired electronic dance music. Incorporating elements of techno, industrial, noise, and synth pop, four sequenced Electribes are used to create eerie backgrounds of tonal interference, glittering splashes of synth, and gradually multiplying pulsing beats, forming a wall of mutated dance madness.


Two kids who hooked up their electronic wizardry are challenging
the boundaries of electronic dance music. In form of an organic, constantly shapeshifting pulse, played on a pile of electronics and drum machines, Laser Poodle is a sweet late night stroboscopic trip. Laser Poodle is Amsterdam based Fyoelk (Germany) and Yellow Galactic Human (Denmark).


is the solo project of Hannah from Amsterdam. She is exploring the many sides of the cassette tape as a medium for capturing and manipulation of sounds. Fieldrecordings and melodic sequences are layered into uplifting sonic spheres of the extraterrestrial kind, with a warm and open feel to them. In her adventures she uses electronics, toy keyboards, violoncello, various acoustic objects & instruments and voice. Hannah is also playing in the free music group Cotopaxi (with Fyoelk), who have toured in Europe and the United States. They are organizing concerts in Amsterdam as the "Hallo Gallo" collective.

Save Silent Barn

via East Village Radio

New York is a vanishing city—no street or block looks the same year to year. Geographically and culturally, Silent Barn has always been “out there.” Located in the Ridgewood section of Queens, the live/work/performance space was founded in 2004 by artists and musicians on that now all-too-familiar eastward flee from Williamsburg and it’s homogenization.

The story of the artist, the developer, the well-heeled culture-vampire, young professionals, and the displacement of the working class is a tale that has been told but Silent Barn always felt different. Located on a stretch of nothing in the middle of nowhere, Silent Barn’s shelf-life as a haven for the presentation of the unmarketable in art and music seemed longer than most. The perpetually sharpie-marked among us figured as long as people dedicated to the fringe ran it and the sidewalk was kept clear, the space would continue flourish. Over the course of it’s seven years of existence, Silent Barn has nourished the careers of notable NYC acts like Vivian Girls, Woods, Liturgy, Real Estate and scores of lesser-known artists across the spectrum of the modern underground from around the world. Most recently, it was home to the massively successful Ende Tymes Noise festival.

This past weekend, Silent Barn was hobbled by a blast of cold urban reality — the venue was robbed and ransacked. Thieves walked out of Silent Barn’s doors onto Wyckoff Avenue carrying thousands of dollars of audio equipment, cash, and artwork and sent an already tight-knit community into shock. Silent Barn’s Facebook page has been lit up with well wishes and words of solidarity from fans and musicians from around the world. Benefit shows and compilations are in the works to help keep Silent Barn operating and its principals have just launched a Kickstarter to help defray the costs of replacing that which is replaceable and to make necessary renovations to keep the space safe and viable for years to come.

Weird times this past weekend at EVR. There was some kind of goth shindig happening at Luck Cheng's (the drag-queen bar/restaurant across the street from EVR) and we were interrupted by pock-faced suburbanites every 10 minutes from Long Island asking where the party was at. We were then visited by a swank-y lawyer type who was taking two fine young women out on the town. None of this, of course, is audible on the archive.

Anyway, it was a really good show and you should listen to it.

Not much craziness to report from this past week's show: I tried to get our interns to make out, we jammed a newly acquired original pressing of my favorite metal record of all time—Napalm Death's Scum, and we heard some of Lussuria's amazing Ghost Entanglement LP. Oh, yeah, Duke from the East Village based prog-rock group Spaces came by with his newly recorded album. In a rarely seen act of charity, we played a track off of the record much to Duke's delight.

Playlist for Just Music 6/19/2011 Featuring a Live Performance by The Tenses (Members of Smegma)

Thanks to my friend C. Spencer Yeh, we had the extraordinary pleasure of welcoming Ju Suk Reet Meate and Jackie Oblivia on to this past Sunday's Just Music program. Meate helped form the legendary non-music ensemble Smegma in the early 70's and Jackie joined just in time for the classic Smegma LP Pigs For Lepers. While Smegma is still a band(the new record, Mirage, on Important Records is AMAZING), Jackie and Ju Suk have been perfroming as The Tenses. Ju Suk explains The Tenses as a "smaller, more focused version of Smegma." They played an amazing set live in the studio and we spent the ensuing 45 minutes picking their brains about the origins of the LAFMS, Portland's punk rock scene in the 70's, and a bunch of random shit. We could have listened to their stories for hours...

1.Wild Man Fischer - I'm Not Shy Anymore from An Evening With Wild Man Fischer LP (Bizarre)
2.Sproton Layer - Bush / Tidal Wave from With Magnetic Fields Disrupted CD (New Alliance)

More about the performers:

Richard Pinhas

Composer, guitarist and electronics innovator Richard Pinhas is recognized as one of France's major experimental musicians. A pivotal figure in the international development of electronic rock music, Pinhas' stature in France is analogous to Tangerine Dream's in Germany: the father figure of an entire musical movement. The pioneering, aggressive music produced by his band Heldon during the 1970s, fusing electronics, guitar and rock, heralded the industrial and techno to come and remains today vital and unsurpassed. Pinhas has been ceaselessly innovative in a career spanning more than 30 years, and recently has been exploring areas of the international ‘noise’ scene. His newest release, Metal/Crystal shows him working with two of that scene’s highest profile artists: Merzbow and Wolf Eyes.


Mountains is Brendon Anderegg and Koen Holtkamp, two sonic explorers whose long history, shared philosophies, and love of sculpting sound, has resulted in some of the most densely layered and blissful music crafted in recent memory. The duo is known for obscuring the boundaries between acoustic instrumentation and electronics. Their newest Thrill Jockey release Air Museum blurs the lines between acoustic and electronic music even more without sacrificing melody or the delicacy of their sound. It is an album of firsts. It was the first album that the acoustic instruments were not processed via a computer. Instead, the processing of the instrumentation (acoustic and electric guitar, cello, accordion, piano, bass etc.) was done using a variety of pedals, modular synths, and other analog techniques. While acoustic instruments were used extensively, the album manifests itself sonically as their most “electronic” record yet.


FORMA's primary influence is at the intersection of electronic based Krautrock (Kraftwerk, Cluster,Harmonia, Popol Vuh) and the explosion of late 70's early 80's underground synthesizer music grouped broadly under the umbrella term Minimal Synth. They create repetitive yet complex evolving structures of sound, producing a wholly improvised music driven by live drum machine programming, synchronized analog synths and spacious melodies. On their eponymous debut LP, the Brooklyn-based electronics trio merges the melodic flow and primitive rhythms of their motorik predecessors with the hypnotic drones of Minimalism, creating an intricate work both addicting and rewarding with repeat listens. Like many of the LP's eleven tracks, the churning and relentless FORMA237B draws its energy from a precarious equilibrium between structural rigidity and free improvisation, a dynamic at the heart of FORMA’s universe. With lush, distant soundscapes as interludes between these peaks, FORMA’s inaugural full-length is a harmonious and expansive expression of the enduring power of Kosmische musik.

Carlos Giffoni

Carlos Giffoni is a Venezuelan electronic musician who resides in the New York City area since the year 2000. Currently using modular synthesizers, hand made custom instruments, and various types of analog and digital synthesis in the composition of electronic music pieces, as well as improvising live with local and international musicians. His recent solo work has focused in live analog synthesizer pieces that put his style in a line with early techno and cosmic electronic music while maintaining the harsher edge of his previous noise works. He founded the No Fun Productions label, which has released works by Noveller, Onehatrix Point Never and legendary Japanese noise group C.C.C.C.

Driphouse on East Village Radio

Casey and I were joined this week by another musician we both greatly admire. Daren Ho, a.k.a Driphouse, lugged all of his gear from Brooklyn to the EVR studio and proceeded to blow us all away with a killer set of cosmic circuitry. Our friend Mike Wolf was in town and spun some nice scummy noise rock records to keep us grounded as well.

Michael Morley on East Village Radio

Casey and I welcomed Michael Morley (The Dead C,Gate) on the Just Music program on April 3rd, 2011. Michael did a live performance using his laptop and a synthesizer program for a handheld Nintendo system. The set was really incredible. Michael followed that up with a raw demo for his next Gate LP; a beat driven piece of warped techno that will surely send long-time Gate fans into a spiral of confusion. Mr.Morley hung out for the whole show, chatted with us, ate some matza(donated by our new friend and rabbinacal student Ari)played some tracks and bought some art from our buddy PMD.

Razxca is the one man analog noise project of Mikhail Gusenkov. In email exchanges with Gusenkov, he informed me that he maintains an anti-consumerist lifestyle and chooses to live simply;wearing 2 dollar pants in a self sustained eco-village outside of Moscow refraining from drugs and alcohol. Over a year a ago he sold most of his music collection and some musical instruments including a djimbe. He cites Iannis Xenakis as an influence on his work along with dub and that he seeks to "create original dub vibes in noise wall." In his pursuit of making"rhythms without beats" Gusenkov utilizes
tape loops and "fail DATA",which he explained as using a trial version of Cool Edit pro and "playing" files not associated with sound and recording them to tape.

Gusenkov has amassed over 160 releases since 1997 with most of them being self released and always free of charge. Gusenkov sites the American net label Proc-Records as his biggest proponent, compares his music to Swedish project Blod, and claims association with the Low Bit aesthetic movement.

The Ukrainian label Genetic Trance, whose stated mission is the dissemination of free information,recently anthologized the majority of Razxca's output on Works(2000-2010)and is available for free. At over three gigs, Works is impenetrable and I defy even the most brain-rotted static fiend to make it through the first two tracks which combine to make up the piece "42 Hours of Noise Kundalini." That title is no exaggeration, by the way. The brazen and self-indulgent scope of a piece that would take a work week to get through both horrifies and fosters a sneering respect for an artist who truly has no designs of gaining commercial appeal. Works contains shorter pieces as well; varying from sparse minimalist sketches to fully formed noise blowouts reminiscent of Japanese noise outfits such as C.C.C.C. For the uninitiated, I suggest checking out his split release with Italian artist Dust Cult. At a very palatable 7 minutes, "Uo" is a superb realization of intricately layered psychedelic noise that does indeed summon rhythmic ghosts. Razxca's N-Series cassette is another fine entry point to the work of this intriguing Russian artist.

Wally Shoup / C. Spencer Yeh / Ben Hall Trio

Seattle-based alto saxophonist Wally Shoup has been involved in
improvised music as a creative artist, writer, organizer, and DJ since
the mid-1970s. His first album, 1981’s independently released
Scree-Run Waltz, was a duo with percussionist Ross Rabin that showed
Shoup creating a unique language equally influenced by European
improvisation and Southern R&B, blues, and soul musics. Over the
course of his long and varied career he’s worked with Davey Williams,
La Donna Smith, Evan Parker, Paul Flaherty, Jack Wright, Thurston
Moore, Chris Corsano, Nels Cline, Reuben Radding, and many others. He
continues to help organize Seattle’s Improvised Music Festival as he
has since 1985, which celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2010 making
it the country’s longest running US event of its kind. In addition to
his diverse involvement in improvised music, his paintings have been
displayed in several galleries and appear on many of his album covers.

C. Spencer Yeh was born in Taipei, Taiwan 1975, and now lives in
Cincinnati, Ohio. He is active both as a solo and collaborative
artist, as well as with his primary project, Burning Star Core. As an
improviser, Yeh is focused on developing a personal vocabulary using
violin, voice, and electronics. As a sound artist/composer, Yeh
explores with all aspects surrounding a work, aurally and physically,
as elements key to the cumulative experience. He is concerned not only
with the sensual aspects of 'sound organization,' but the gestural
qualities as well. Yeh has collaborated with a deep and ever-growing
list of artists and groups, including Tony Conrad, New Humans with
Vito Acconci, Evan Parker, Thurston Moore, Amy Granat with Jutta
Koether, Okkyung Lee, Justin Lieberman, John Wiese, Don Dietrich, Nate
Wooley, Chris Corsano, Prurient, and Jandek.

Ben Hall is a drummer, percussionist, tympanist and a founding member
of the 1/4 speed Michigan chamber jazz group Graveyards, as well as a
co-curator of the experimental label brokenresearch. Other groups
include Mêlée with cellist Hans Buetow and trumpeter Nate Wooley,
Trauma with guitarist Chris Riggs, The New Monuments with Don Dietrich
of Borbetomagus and C. Spencer Yeh of Burning Star Core, a duo with
violinist Mike Khoury, a duo with saxophonist Wally Shoup, a trio with
Joe Morris and Chris Riggs, and a quartet with Vic Rawlings, Greg
Kelley, and Chris Riggs.

Goblin War Trio

Featuring members of Brooklyn's finest experimental/progressive sound
mercenaries Grasshopper,Opponents, and Rust Worship, Goblin War Trio
delivers some kind of doom infused free sprawl that, had they been
around in the 60's, would have fit very nicely on the ESP-Disk'

C. Lavender/Ceci Moss

C. Lavender is a multidisciplinary artist currently residing in the
upper Hudson Valley region of New York . Previously working primarily
with plunderphonics, she now focuses on sound and performance as a
whole. Her performances vary in instrumentation, length, and intensity
with consideration to intuition and mood which reflects the atmosphere
of the space. C. Lavender has performed at The Voice of the Valley
festival in West Virginia, The International Noise Conference in Miami
and The New York Eye & Ear fest.

Ceci Moss is a writer, musician, DJ, and curator. She plays bass in
the band Cellular Chaos and previously recorded solo material as Mi Or
