DOWNLOAD: Matmos - Steam and Sequins for Larry Levan (MP3)

Matmos

2/23 Saturday (RK)
8 and 10 pm
MATMOS
Dr. Drew Daniels (laptop, objects) Martin Schmidt (synth, objects)
Matmos are a duo who recently relocated from San Francisco to Baltimore. Their work is all over the place: musique concrete, pop music, rhythmic patterns, free improv, video, sound, actions. For this concert they will present their “cover” of “The Backyard”, the final act of the Robert Ashley tele-opera “Perfect Lives{, and some newer pieces that focus on pure electronic music. Expect some improvisation and some guest shenanigans.
This is happening at The Stone in NYC where Petra Haden played last night and is also playing again soon.

If you want a taste of what you can expect from Matmos, I'll be taping (audio) the Feb 9 show in Baltimore, which will find its way here within a couple of days after:

I hope the audience acts more informed at the NYC shows than at the Baltimore show this past weekend...the audience was much too talkative for a Matmos performance and my audio suffers from it (so the band requested that the audio not circulate).

In have a couple of vids from the show:
