Phase 3 w/ Vanessa DeWolf + Bill Horist
PHASE 3 is three smart men on computers and various other audio technology. They make a modern, electronic sound that strangely intertwines with sounds of a kind of nostalgia, old mechanisms, manual typewriters, the voices of the moon-space program or some kind of manual...eerie quiet sounds repeating softly like a carpet of ants, a tiny bell rings or a gear turns in the far distance then emerges in a loud vibrant suddenness in the foreground only to get smashed and vanish into the sounds in the distance of an airport. Insects and typewriters, loudspeakers, feedback and the sounds of dishes being washed mix and emerge, vanish and reappear. Seattle guitar maniac Bill Horist opens.
