Join us for two solo electronic music acts as THOLLEM ELECTRIC (Vox + electric Piano + fx) & BRAIN GRIMMER (Cello + Guzheng + APC40 > AbletonLive) explore electronic sound-scapes in experimental sonic territories.
Thollem Electric: Tsigoti+ is an anarcho blues lullaby noise free jazz circus punk show of solo renditions of Tsigoti songs plus more.
Thollem has been traveling perpetually throughout North America and Europe the past six years, collaborating with artists such as Mike Watt (Minutemen/The Stooges), Nels Cline (Wilco), John Dieterich/Greg Saunier (Deerhoof), Jad Fair (Half-Japanese) and Arrington de Dionyso (Old Time Relijun).
About Thollem, Signal to Noise magazine marvels, “It seems beyond the capacity of one human being to contain so much densely-packed creative energy”. Thollem is traveling with four recently-released recordings: Read Between The Lines…Think Outside Them – Tsigoti (Post-Consumer, Oct. 2012); You Are Always On Our Minds – The Hand to Man Band with Mike Watt, John Dieterich and Tim Barnes (Post-Co! nsumer); The Gowanus Session with William Parker and Nels Cline (Porter Records) and 10,000 Tigers with Arrington de Dionyso (Self-Released).
BRAIN GRIMMER, of GrimmusiK, is the electronic music moniker of composer & multi-instrumentalist BC Grimm. Since September 2011, BCG has released 3 EPs: WALT: Recycle Vol I  | Recycle Vol II  | CONVERGING Lines: Recycle Vol III  & 2 full-length albums: BEATS EP [2011/2012] | Baby’s First DubStep  as Brain Grimmer. His Recycle Projects began as an outlet to electronically re-purpose original string music composed for Theater, Dance, Film, and Yoga score commissions (Mary’s Wedding, Flock Migrates Over the Pines, Lives of Cut Flowers). His BEATS EP ranges from: jazz inspired hiphop instrumentals & texture bent break-beats, to manipulated samples sourced from Mongolia, Azerbaijan, Japan, China, Egypt, India, and elsewhere! Heavily influenced by music concrete, early tape pieces, & avant-garde aleatory from 20th century composers; BCG! also turns to leaders in 21st C. beat music such as Amon Tobin, J’Dilla, & Flying Lotus for inspiration. Brain Grimmer scores for Tinker Films have recently been featured at the 2012 Wisconsin Film Fest & Bronx International Film Fest 2012. BCG is now working on material for a new solo album, composing with source audio of extended technique on his cello and Chinese string instruments. This will mark his first Official BRAIN GRIMMER live set, don’t miss it!!
