(Pr: Sigh-won-ee) is Raub Roy’s improvisatory duet between the performer and a host of analog computing synthesizers. Much like his alternate guise, Horaflora (since 2005), which saw a similar artist/instrument dialogue, but with strictly electroacousticdevices (balloons, electric toothbrushes, transducers, drums - (the usual)). The ensuing structures from both projects can be as much a surprise to Roy as to the audience. He, with partner Dianne Lynn, founded Weird Ear Records (2011), a record label reveling in disparate forms of experimental music. Their slogan, “The Weird Ear, The Better,” serves as a guideline to the curatorial themes across all of these projects. Raub is from Western Mass. but has lived in the Bay Area since 2007.

Glochids is James Roemer of Arizona, currently Oakland (CA)-based. Succulents field researcher, gamelan experimentalist, bricoleur extraordinaire, James plays many objects, including metallophone percussion, a language learning computer replete with old school punch card interface, cactus quills (glochids), street sweeper kalimba, and electronics. His field-recorded snapshots of these sounds tend to blur with their backgrounds until focal point becomes the ear of the beholder. In performance, electro-acoustic environments are meticulously presented, with elements of chance interwoven, mediated in their deployment to serve the aesthetic intention of the piece. Glochids has albums released by Weird Ear, Phinery, Lime Lodge, Ascetic House, AughtVoid, and enmossed ::

Nurse Betty is a noise experiment by Dianne Lynn of FootSOS, Homoglochini, Weird Ear Records, and Life Changing Ministry. Born of curiosity for the art of noise and inspired by concepts and processes in life science such as circulation, osmosis, pressure, and release, her modular synths, sequencers, and field recordings culminate a visceral collage of equilibrium and agitation. Nurse Betty is influenced by friends and artists of the Bay Area noise scene. Dianne Lynn, with her partner Raub Roy, founded Weird Ear Records (2011), a record label reveling in disparate forms of experimental music. Their slogan, “The Weird Ear, The Better,” serves as a guideline to the curatorial themes across all of these projects.

Never heard of the venue and it took a bit of work to locate without a Facebook account (is it near Berks?).

Definitely will try to make it to the Philly show.

it’s veeeery under the radar. it’s a weird house in the old kensington area, from what i can remember it’s between 2nd and front streets up in that area. i also recall that it took a bit of work to find the exact address (which i’m sure is how they like it)


This’ll be the last one at the Vat, apparently, as thee gent who runs it is moving out…
