NEW MUSIC THURSDAYS
$6-10 sliding scale donation, no one turned away for lack of funds
8pm: Lx Rudis
9pm: Rick Walker’s Loop-Pool
Lx began playing synth and singing in san francisco punk groups as soon as he was able, way back when there was No Future: 1979. After several close calls with something resembling fame, he eventually noticed that The Future was indeed happening and took this cue to retire to a career in the videogame industry. He performs actively in the San Francisco Bay Area, solo and in ensemble. His current live performance system is a CD based DJ rig augmented by various processors and several ‘gestural controllers’. Sets are built from remixes of his own material, found-sound and field recordings and occasionally, Other Peoples’ Music. Lx Rudis is resident artist and sometimes emcee for San Francisco’s Drum Machine Museum. His active collaborative projects include: Live Feed, United Satanic Apache Front, Chochota, Winston Tong. Tonight, LX will be focusing mostly on a Matrix 12 synthesizer.
Rick Walker has been a performing percussionist for over 25 years, and a central figure in the international “Looping”. Using multiple real-time sampling devices and an extensive array of junk, world instruments and inventions, he can create improvised, multi-layered “songs” before your eyes.
