Oriental Rugs / MMCIII / D.U.G.O.U.T.C.A.N.O.E. / DJ Jake Gittes

Friday, July 22rd



Come out to Soundlab this Friday (July 22) to bask in the extraordinary as three out-there projects come together in Buffalo for a night of cosmic debauchery. From Denver, MMCIII (Milton Melvin Croissant III) is a video projection/experimental noise artist who’s claim to fame consists of 3D animated projections accompanied by blissed-out electronics played through a homemade “Infinity Machine.” Fellow Denverites, D.U.G.O.U.T.C.A.N.O.E. use countless field recordings augmented with live instrumentation to create glitchy scenes that bring to mind a more frenetic version of the Books. Chicago trio Oriental Rugs bring soundscapes that are somewhat exotic in style and all analog in delivery, using vintage synthesizers, cassette loops, and a VHS mixer to create aural worlds all their own. Spinning ousider punk, kraut and electro all through the night will be DJ Jake Gittes. The intergalactic gateway opens at 8pm and $7 secures your golden ticket to the unknown.
