Money Mark is a composer, producer and musician known for his funky, retro-flavored keyboard riffs which earned him the unofficial title of the fourth Beastie Boy. He will be performing with his mad invention, the frankolodeon, which plays 100+ year old piano rolls through polysynths & arpeggiators. Ghostly and otherworldly, the frankolodeon bridges actual performances by turn-of-the-century composers with modern technology. Hear Eubie Blake play a Mini-Moog!
Swollen Brain: Improvisational noise duo created in 2016 by guitarist, Nick Reinhart (Tera Melos) and drummer, Eric Gardner (Dot Hacker). The duo assembles and morphs spontaneous ideas into 'songs', blurring the lines of improvisation and structured composition. Stylistically difficult to categorize, the music is all at once thoughtful, ambient, jarring, intense, dynamic, hypnotic and adventurous -a musical conversation built on a textural soundscape with angular counter melodies and rhythmic themes that break apart and ascend into chaos.
Louis Cole, (1/2 of the duo Knower) and keyboard/vocalist/producer Michael Stegner, who's recorded everything form country to electro dance music, will play an improvisational set which combines their wide-ranging sounds.
