John C.S. Keston and Cody McKinney present: Sound / Simulacra

May 22 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm

$10 admission. $5 with student ID. Doors open 15 minutes before music starts.


John C.S. Keston and Cody McKinney present: Sound / Simulacra: A monthly series which explores musical improvisation as a “faithful and intentionally distorted” representational process. Sound / Simulacra will bring together some of the Twin Cities most unique voices to “recreate, distort, and create the hyperreal.”


This month Sound / Simulacra features artist Darwin Grosse. Darwin Grosse works at the intersection of creativity, electronics and code. By applying an engineer’s toolkit to live performance, he builds complex sonic landscapes out of whole cloth. In addition to his active live media performance work, Darwin is part of the Cycling ‘74 software development team, writes for several media arts outlets and in an occasional university instructor. Oh, and he probably drinks more coffee than you. In this performance, Darwin will be working with a modular synthesizer and several computing platforms (Akai MPC Live, Monome Norns) to produce both ambient/melodic washes and noise walls.


Set 1 – Darwin Grosse (electronics)


Set 2 – Darwin Grosse (electronics), John C.S. Keston (piano, Rhodes, synthesizers), Cody McKinney (bass, electronics, voice)
