Confirmed musical guests: Savage Aural Hotbed, Caly McMorrow and Tim Kaiser
Savage Aural Hotbed
Savage Aural Hotbed creates their compelling sound using conventional and “found object” percussion instruments, bass guitar, electronically modified horns and vocals, and power tools. With up to four people drumming, they provide visual, as well as aural excitement with their high energy rhythms, flailing arms, and flying sparks.
Caly is an electronic musician, sound designer, and interactive installation artist based in St. Paul, MN. One of few women in the DIY-driven culture of music made with video games and altered electronic toys, she blends these and live-looping technology with a background in classical saxophone and piano to create layered compositions of “ambient glitch.” She’s equally at home as part of a warehouse party or a gallery opening, and has performed and exhibited in varied venues including the Walker Art Center, the Spark Festival of Electronic music (as a performer, juror, panelist, and installation artist); San Francisco’s Noisebridge Hacker Space, The Tank’s Bent Fest; First Avenue and 7th Street Entry, and the Rochester Art Center.
Tim Kaiser has been producing experimental art at various venues for the past 30 years. His video, installation and performance art projects have been presented in Germany, Brazil, Sweden, Hong Kong, Cuba, Canada, Philladelphia, New York and Chicago. Tim has toured his live musical performances throughout the US including New York, Chicago, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Detroit, Tulsa, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Baltimore, Providence, Columbus, Asheville, Portland, St.Louis, Nashville and Duluth (the hardest gig to get!).
