Lou Mallozzi + Gyre
Sat. Sep. 22, 8 PM; $5 – $15 at the door

Lou Mallozzi (Chicago) presents solo sound works intertwining language, objects, vinyl, whistling, and microphones including La patria partorisce padri partiti, which deconstructs Italian fascist texts through controlled microphone feedback, and Arc, in which the eyes drown in a sea of stardust. Gyre use oscillators, feedback circuits, simple sound generators, microphone captures, digital processing to form swirling loops of sound layers. Presented by Nonsequitur.
