Red House welcomes Psychedelic Noise Project from UK!

Red House Arts Center has become a standout venue in Central New York for experimentalmusicians, hosting Alva Noto & Byetone from Germany, mudboy from Providence, and Zach Layton,MV Carbon and The Loud Objects from New York City. This trend continues when Red Housewelcomes Ashtray Navigations and the Flower-Corsano Duo from the Termite Club in the United Kingdom.

Phil Todd, inspired by the UK’s underground tape music scene, formed Ashtray Navigations in 1994 in Stoke On Trent, England. The psychedelic noise project defies easy categorization given the diverse nature of Todd’s collaborators and the incredible breadth of work Ash Nav has created. Ash Nav consists of Phil Todd (guitar/electronics) and Melanie Delaney, aka Ocelocelot (electronics).

“No matter how limited or impossible to find, every release by this one-man-plus sideshow proves to be a stimulating slice of homemade musical nirvana.” – Foxy Digitalis

Michael Flower (shahi baaja, a modified electric version of the Indian bulbul tarang) has been involved in a number of solo projects and is best know for his work with Vibracathedral Orchestra. Chris Corsano plays drums and has performed with Paul Flaherty, Jim O’Rourke, Björk, EvanParker, Jandek, Thurston Moore, Vampire Belt and Six Organs of Admittance among others.

Ashtray Navigations and the Flower-Corsano Duo will perform at the Red House Arts Center on Thursday, October 29 at 9PM. Tickets are $15 general admission, $12 for students and seniors and are available from http://www.theredhouse.org.
