19.00 FEED 101515: Lucrecia Dalt + James Welburn @ KW

WHY: FEED Frequencies autumn program brings us electroacoustic performances by Lucrecia Dalt and James Welburn. Welburn combines and modifies deconstructed electric bass guitar sounds with abstract software processing; sometimes performing solo live sets, featuring ambient landscapes of noisy drones, diminished tones, clangs and distorted bass. Dalt's music, while highly technical, maintains a quantity of emotionality, merging accessible, melody with abstract structures, handcrafted effects and sampling.
