Incredibly excited to welcome back the great Aaron Dilloway for two nights! One of the most forward-thinking and unpredictable artists working in the fields of electronic and noise music, Dilloway has long since carved out his own distincitve niche since leaving formidable trip metal gods Wolf Eyes over a decade ago. These two evenings will see him perform both solo and in a brace of compelling duos with Vicky Langan and Evan Parker.
“Dilloway relentlessly upends and disrupts listener perception, in particular the either/or logic governing it. His weapon of choice is the tape loop, albeit loopage that is mangled, wire-fried and intensely lo-fi. By constructing repetition-based music riddled with distinctive imperfections, one of the many results Dilloway achieves is a collapsing of the dichotomy between predictability and randomness.” – Residenct Advisor
Hailing from Michigan, Aaron Dilloway was a founding member of formidable trip metal gods Wolf Eyes. Since he left that band a decade ago, he’s delicately extended his exploration of tape manipulations and found sound appropriation, simultaneously bringing warmth and acidity, high-end assault and dreamy dislocation in a way that could be said to unwittingly form a bridge between Robert Ashley and hauntology.
A serial collaborator, he’s also made great records in cahoots with Jason Lescalleet, C. Spencer Yeh and many more and been compared to Maryanne Amacher and Nurse With Wound. Currently based in Oberlin, Ohio, from where he runs the Hanson Records label and mailorder.
Irish artist Vicky Langan will DJ. Mysterious fragments, textural soundings.
“Through her solo work as Wölflinge, Irish artist Vicky Langan has gained a reputation for raw and intense performances that are as likely to leave audiences feeling deeply unsettled as profoundly moved. Langan both embraces and projects vulnerability, offering an intimate physical theatre loaded with personal symbolism and unguarded emotion. With a focus on the sounds of the body and its functions, involving contact-miked skin, amplified breath and live electronic manipulation, Langan’s work sits between sound and performance art.” – Daniel Spicer, The Wire magazine
Vicky Langan's vulnerable, emotionally charged performances envelop audiences in an often troublingly intense aura of dark intimacy. In opening herself emotionally, she creates warm yet discomforting rituals that at once embrace the viewers and remain resolutely private, exploring the limits of what can be shared between people and what must remain mysterious. Her performance practice operates across several often overlapping fields, chiefly performance, sound, and film.
