Upcoming Electronic Music at LPR



Check out some of the electronic acts coming to LPR!

File Under: 8-Bit, electronic, cyberpunk
Nullsleep is thealias of Jeremiah Johnson, an electronic musician whose style could best be described as post-cyberpunk: a combination of distorted synthpop, electro, and industrial produced with repurposed low-bit electronics. His approach embraces the politics of appropriation, leveraged limitations, destructive process anddata corruption. The result is a wall of digital noise driven by a heavy beat, expanding and collapsing in a series of glitches and drones emanating from cheap plastic devices. In1999 Nullsleep cofounded 8bitpeoples, a collective of artists interested in the audio-visual aesthetics of early home computers and video game consoles. He has since released a number of recordings through 8bitpeoples, Astralwerks, Aniplex and others. Based in New York City, Nullsleep has performed over 150 shows throughout North America, Europeand Asia, including successful world tours in 2006 and 2009.

Text of Light
File Under: experimental, noise, avant-garde
Text of Light explode with a formidable combination of free jazz skronk, seismic percussion, tonal drone and searing guitar noise,” said The WIRE magazine in 2008. The group was formed in 1999 with the idea to perform improvised music to the films of Stan Brakhage and other members of the American Cinema avant-garde of the 1950s-60s, an under-known period of American filmic poetics (Brakhage’s film ‘The Text of Light’ was used at the premiere performances and was the namesake of the group).

Text of Light will be performing at LPR on September 2nd, to purchase tickets click here!

File Under: experimental, electronic

Fennesz uses guitar and computer to create shimmering, swirling electronic sound of enormous range and complex musicality. “Imagine the electric guitar severed from cliché and all of its physical limitations, shaping a bold new musical language.” – (City Newspaper, USA). His lush and luminant compositions are anything but sterile computer experiments. They resemble sensitive, telescopic recordings of rainforest insect life or natural atmospheric occurrences, an inherent naturalism permeating each piece.

Fennesz will be performing with Soap&Skin and Due East as part of the 2010 Moving Sounds Festival on September 4th, to purchase tickets click here!

Jimmy Edgar

File Under: alternative, hip hop, experimental
Lover. Fighter. Prophet. Freak magnet. Time-traveler. Musician, photographer and designer Jimmy Edgar is a wayward star-child streaking across the cosmic dance-floor. Endowed with a supernatural feel for futuristic funk, the Detroit native has been bleeping and grinding about the Milky Way since he was a teenage humanoid. While his peers were worrying about their grades and popularity Edgar was spinning alongside his hometown’s DJ heroes and programming intricate beats that were unquestionably interplanetary communication disguised as dance music.
