"Experiment and Dance" w/Aphra, QQQ & More at W/N W/N Jan. 31

"Experiment and Dance" w/Aphra, QQQ & More at W/N W/N Jan. 31

W/N W/N is throwing another one of their celebrations of “experiment and dance” this Sunday. Aphra, the solo project of ex-Tutlie member Rebecca Way, takes on a more minimalist electropop side of music; some live performances consist of just her and a keyboard, but her new music experiments more with noise and texture. Either way, expect Way’s powerful voice to be featured heavily. Also making an appearance to get your synapses firing will be sound sculptor QQQ. Synth pads straight out of 80's depictions of dystopian futures set the foundation beneath displaced beats and glitching samples that bring stark attention to the negative space between notes and grooves. Glades will be performing as well, bringing a more pacified ambience to the party with his chilled-out, cosmic electro-soul. Synth pads drone, warble and bleed into each other, contrasting with sharp, modulating, occasionally arhythmic percussion samples, while Telequanta varies his sound from funky house remixes of disco songs with that classic danceable bass drum backbeat to more ambient, downtempo jams.
