Tonight: Foundry Launch Party featuring Container

Foundry Launch Party featuring Container

Friday, March 1

syt4“It’s really about creating an atmosphere, a setting for introductions and explorations,” says Frank Napolski, who is throwing a launch party for his production company Foundry this weekend at Soundlab with partner Adrian Bertolone. “It’s as much about well curated events with performers whose work shares similar qualities, as it is about pushing into other forms of time-based art,” Napolski said. As far as pushing into other forms of time-based art, Friday’s experimental techno headliner Container is a perfect example. As far-out as this Nashville-based producer’s sometimes abrasive, but always interesting sounds are, he manages to simultaneously push the boundaries of music and defines it in its purest form; as moving sound structured only by a pulsing beat. Whether Container’s occasionally disorienting, yet driving rhythms move you to get up and dance or contemplate sound itself is up to you. Rounding out Friday’s show will be Providence, Rhode Island based female techno producer Valerie Martino aka Unicorn Hard-On, fellow Providence based sound artist Timeghost, Bertolone’s alter ego Ay Fast, and Buffalo dance music producers UVB-76 (pictured). Keep an eye out for more events from Foundry in the coming weeks.
