This past June I played host (along with Metal Shaker) to two of New York's more experimental artists, Post Abortion Stress and Zilmrah /O\.
Post Abortion Stress is a duo consisting of Robert L. Pepper and Amber Brien. Their soundscapes were simply stunning. I have never heard anyone "use" sound they way they did. It was one of the most engrossing performances I have seen/heard.
From Post Abortion Stress -
"The whole point of being an artist can be summed up into one two-letter word, “DO.” It doesn’t matter how successful you are, how many people know, it is based on life experience of creating in some form or another".
Zilmrah /O\ is the solo project of visual artist/musician Lawry Romani. Sonically inhabiting a world all is own, Lawry produces some of the most unique and adventurous "electronic" music.
From Zilmrah /O\ -
"A giant Totenkopf wrecking ball swinging the gauntlet of human emotions through the delicate baron wasteland of all things not I. "

I really want to thank both PAS and Zilmrah /O\ for coming to Chicago. It was a night I won't soon forget....
