Thomas Dimuzio –

Mr. Dimuzio has an insider’s knowledge of classic experimental musical forms such as musique concrete and electro-acoustic music, as well as showing fluency with current styles, “dark ambient”, “noise” and “post-techno”.

As a collaborator his history is not easily matched, he has worked with Dimmer (with Joseph Hammer), Chris Cutler, Fred Frith, Dan Burke/Illusion of Safety, Nick Didkovsky, ISIS, Negativland, David Lee Myers, Matmos, Wobbly, Poptastic, Due Process, 5uu’s, Tom Cora and Mickey Hart, among others.

Live, his forté is creating massive hypnotic landscapes. The “drone” in popular currency is often just an annoying mosquito whine when compared to Mr. Dimuzio’s live work at it’s finest. Dense, rich and enveloping.

Dimuzio’s pioneering and innovative use of live sampling, synthesis, signal processing, custom crossfade looping and algorithmic mixing fuels a synergy of man and machine in his live performances.

This is his 3rd performance at the Red Room, his sonic illuminations have never disappointed.

Karl Ekdahl –

A local hero, creator of the “Ekdahl Moisturizer” processor, the “Quadmassager” processor and the “Polygamist Synthesizer” graces us with a piece he has made recently using all of the above self-designed instruments, and more.

Mr. Ekdahl lives in Baltimore, but is originally from Sweden, where he amassed a beautiful collection of Vespas, synthesizers and high-heeled pumps.

His music has ranged from “date-rock” to “Electronic Body Music” to experimental noise sound.

This will be his first performance at the Red Room

Please come and help us welcome them both Saturday May 23rd.
