September 19 Ambient Noise

Xhurch is a live-perform space and a manifesto to document the reuse of places of worship, the ex-churches.

The Xhurch invites you into their home tonight for an early quietish musical experience.

Matt Jenkens from Dogheart performs solo. Then Catlin King-CKfirefighter, half of Planets Around the Sun performs her new unit Numbskull. Calvin Johnson and The Hive Dwellers finish.

Many may head over after to the MSHR live performance. MSHR has performed installations at Xhurch. At Xhurch 4550 NE 20th. 6:30PM-9:30 $5 donation

MSHR is Birch Cooper and Brenna Murphy. They have made four installations, each about ten feet square, in an about forty foot square very dark room. Each pod is a geometric arrangement of Brenna Murphy's extruded patterns. Birch Cooper's analog synths, in primarily noise timbre, run in optical feedback-driven patterns. Some lighting free runs too, including white LED chasers, circling each pod.

Tonight they perform the piece in an interaction between their bodies and the sensors.

At 2010 SE 8th, 10PM $10
