French Quarter, The Teeets, Hollow Sunshine & Kevin Greenspon
First on last night's bill was Kevin Greenspon, a Los Angeles native whose recordings feature ambient guitar and cassette loops which collide with and spill into each other. His work contains discernable movements of sound that are soft and ethereal during one moment while dissonant and destructive during another. In a perfect world, Greenspon's soundscapes would be the soundtrack for Disneyland's Space Mountain, echoing all the speedy thrills and turbulence of interplanetary travel. Drone and noise are staples of experimental music, but rarely are they applied so affectively as Greenspon's moody, crescendoing sound collages.
