Electronic Music Takes Over Washington, D.C.
Catherine Lewis reports:
On January 22nd, John "SK" Rickman will be putting on his Electric Circus at the Black Cat. Rickman has been hosting Electric Circuses for over a year now in cities from Richmond to Baltimore to New York City. This version features three acts: Philip Samartzis (a lecturer in Sound and Media Arts at RMIT in Australia and a composer of experimental soundscapes), Nautical Alamanac (a Baltimore duo who improv using a wide array of electronic gadgetry), and Mikroknytes (DC-based drony electronics with violin).
Finally, February 3rd brings "Lunar Magus" at Decatur Blue, another in the series of Mass Particles-sponsored experimental electronic shows. February's event brings Zbignew Karkowski (formerly of Sensorband) and Zipperspy together with Trance and the Arcade-- Chuck Bettis' solo electronic project (Bettis is a member of the All-Scars and the founder of Mass Particles).
