GOODIEPAL returns for his first Boston-area show since his amazing performance at the 2006 Brainwaves festival! Goodiepal is Parl Kristian Bjorn Vester, a Danish/Faroese musician and composer. The eccentric Goodiepal performs and lectures about his work and ideas at universities and galleries around the world — he is in town to lecture at Harvard. Until recently, he was employed as a teacher at DIEM (Danish Institute for Electro-acoustic Music) at the Royal Academy of Music in Aarhus, Denmark. Goodiepal declared intellectual war against the stupidity in modern computer music and media art, which is to say against The Royal Academy of Music, when he quit the job in 2008. He currently lives in London.

INSECT FACTORY is the music of Silver Spring, MD guitarist Jeff Barsky. His playing creates thick waves of textured sound, building hypnotic and atmospheric drone fields. His first proper CD, Air Traffic Control Sleep, was released on his own Insect Fields label in the summer of 2007, to acclaim from the likes of Washington Post, The Wire and Terrascope.
