HRLA presents Max Eilbacher’s The VanderBleakin Tour Comes To The West Coast with:
Max Eilbacher

We have Eilbacher ripping sets of electro-acoustic shard flappery with drone-rockers Teeth Mountain, rocking a guitar and violent acts of peace with aktionist noise-rock unit Needle Gun (of which he helped found), bobbing his own head along a top a swarm of electronics with technocrats Matmos, keeping just intoned enough with comp-rockers Horse Lords (of which he is also a founding member) as well as improvising at events like High Zero, making video art, and eating a nasty mountain of hot peppers just to impress two brothers with different last names; the psychedelic noise-triXXXster Twig Harper and the reel-to-reel builder and stoic impresario of deadened ambush, Caleb Johnston. At this point, the context returns to its’ steady placement as useless. If one places a musician within every-damn-musical-area one can fall into, then can’t one as easily put them into no-damn-musical-area? After all who ever heard of a technocrat drone-rocker noise aktionist eating hot peppers with two psychedelic brothers all while playing junked out electronics mixed with developing and progressive, but still rather nostalgia tinged, digital sounds, except there are no beats, drones, or noise-blasts but rather interlocking layers of clang-y misshapen patterns that are replaced by rising and descending tones smattered together to be torn apart to create a carousel affect of the cogent and the confused? There seems to be just nothing to say about Max Eilbacher other than that he is a Baltimore based musician working with a wide variety of electronics, both sampled and synthetic. Eilbacher has a solo record out on the Spectrum Spools label, a sub-label of Editions Mego

Luminous All Kudler

Luminous All Kudler is one of many interchangeable performing aliases of currently Baltimore based electronic musician and sound artist Ben Kudler. In response to the recent move to integrate computers into every facet of daily life, including the body, Kudler’s sounds create physiological snaps and bumps in addition to psychoacoustic errors and confusions on the part of the listener. The immediately identifiable synthetic sounds used are strapped into shaky, if not plain stupid, structures stacked on top of one another rendering a centrifugally hung spinning force of a composition that can only have sense derived from by each individual listener, the end user. Luminous All Kudler’s debut full length record will be released on Spectrum Spools, a sub-label of Editions Mego this year.
