This Tuesday July 22nd - Planet Of The Loops

The Planet Of The Loops' bi-monthly looping series returns
with long-time collaborators in traditional European music,
Laurence Stevenson and Ben Grossman as they explore
their loopier, experimental selves for this concert. Laurence is
a formidable fiddler in the realm of Celtic, folk and traditional
music and Ben is a hurdy gurdy (vielle a roue/Drehleier) player
who's not afraid of a bouree or mazurka. They both additionally
share backgrounds in experimental music, sound design and
composition, and will be using live looping devices and
electronics to extend their instruments. The evening will
be totally improvised...protective headwear is optional.

Laurence Stevenson was born long ago in Glasgow Scotland
and took up the violin at the age of nine. He chanced to hear
Pink Floyd being played on the radio and everything changed
for him that day. Laurence can now be seen playing most
frequently with Ritmo Flamenco.

Ben Grossman grew up listening to Pink Floyd, T Rex and
Bartok. One day he heard some traditional music from
Central France and he's been trying to find good raw milk
goat cheese ever since.

Coming Tuesday July 29th - Falling You and Andrew Duke

Falling You brings their blend of dark ambient and ethereal
electronica all the way from Santa Cruz, California to play
for those whose hearts are moved by moody music and
gorgeous female vocals and for those who live their lives
by moonlight. Influences and comparisons range from
Nurse With Wound & Coil, to Brian Eno & Harold Budd,
to Dead Can Dance & Lycia, to Underworld, as electronics
from John Michael Zorko meet the haunting voices of
Dru Allen & Aimee Page. http://www.mp3.com/fallingyou

Don't miss the opening set by Halifax's Andrew Duke, who
has been composing, producing, remixing and performing
music since 1987. He's been commissioned for 39 remixes
(for artists like Aaliyah, Pink Floyd, Chicks On Speed and
David Kristian), has licensed 107 tracks to compilations &
toured his live PA across Canada. http://www.techno.ca/cognition

Between Sets CD - "Slim Westerns" by a small, good thing
This 1994 release by a small, good thing (led by Andrew Hulme
of British ethno-tribal-ambient act O Yuki Conjugate) merges
the classic "western" sounds of acoustic & electric guitars
with expansive laid-back ambience. (soleilmoon recordings)
