About the artists…
ASHER THAL-NIR is a composer and sound artist whose music is typically ultra-minimal and exquisitely quiet. His work is composed using recordings of acoustic and electronic instruments, location recordings, and found recordings which are manipulated in various ways. He has recordings out on Conv, Mystery Sea, Leerraum, The Land of, and his own Sourdine imprint.
BRENDAN MURRAY is a self-taught musician and sound art vet based in Somerville. He describes his mesmerizing music as a balance between spontaneous soundmaking and compositional rigor, with an emphasis on drones and repetition. He has released recordings on labels, such as Students of Decay, 23Five, Intransitive, and Sedimental.
A cautionary note: the space is small and the espresso is amazing, so don’t be fashionably late! We will start as close to 8 p.m. as we can.
