Q: Interactive noise suit!? A: "The title for this aesthetic performance piece is 'A Spider in the
Cul-de-Sac'. I will be using source material of natural sound phenomena
collected with a MiniDisc recorder recently in Costa Rica... The 'suit'
will be used to digitally control affectations of the sounds, as well as to
produce analog acoustic feedback via several EMF coils and microphones
mounted on antennae that extend from the suit. Like an electric insect
exuding webs of invisible electromagnetic fields that translate to palpable
sound, the piece is a search for correlations between the 'natural' world
and the electronically 'controlled' future we have planned out for us."

JACK WRIGHT + BHOB RAINEY
The duo of Bhob Rainey and Jack Wright presents a meeting of two of the most
original saxophonists performing today. In fact, "saxophone" barely
describes the range of sounds that these two produce. From
electronic-sounding waves to percussive slaps, from theatrical gesturing to a
highly refined lyricism, this duo sounds like an orchestra of flutes, cellos,
oscillators, truck brakes, endangered birds, and then some. Both Rainey and
Wright have been regarded by critics for the depth of their work, the unity
and vision of which has begun to set a new standard among improvisers.
Together, they have played all over the United States and have recorded for
CIMP Records (the Cadence label) with Fred Lonberg-Holm and Bob Marsh of
Chicago, and for Tautology Records with Eric Rosenthal and Taylor Ho Bynum of
Live computer audio madness by Gary Singh and Mark Grey with trap-set

Well, one of these little interactive squares that you push said in a strangely distorted motherly tone, "Night, night.", but we listened to it over and over and over and we swore it said, "Night rape, night rape, night rape..." Anyhow, expect drawstrings and pulleys and colored xylophones and "tickle-me-elmos" and others to generously delight you with unique yet simple compostions and nothing quite as horrible as a plastic unbreakable night-rape octogan (NEW!

The spring and summer 2000 live performances
represent both the past and the future of Cock
E.S.P. Besides performing the infamous harsh and
violent live noise as they have done for the past
several years, the group is also incorporating
electro-acoustic improvisation in the
traditionalist style of Derek Bailey and Evan
Parker, broken hardcore electronica influenced by
V/VM, and deviant attempts at song structure in
the vein of Milovan Srdenovic. For most tour
dates, the usual two-piece line-up will be
augmented by additional players including Weasel
Walter, leader of the free jazz ensemble The
Flying Luttenbachers as well as the black metal
band Hatewave, and Misty Martinez, last seen as
the live stripper for the glam-noise group To Live
and Shave in L.A.

ILLUSION OF SAFETY
Illusion Of safety has been the ongoing project of Dan Burke since 1983. Originally formed with the avant-rock band Dot Dot Dot to do live improv performances, in 1984 Burke began to work with Mark Klein, Mitch Enderle, and Mark Sorenen, employing a post-industrial compositional approach. Since 1988 IOS has had a fluctuating lineup of from one to six members. They?e been described as creators of experimental, ambient, post-industrial, improvisation, power electronics, sound collage, and decomposition. Since the early 80s, Dan Burke has been one of the leading figures in the American experimental music scene. He has recorded numerous CDs, toured internationally, and been a mentor to Sonic Youth member Jim O?Rourke. In 1998, Burke went into semi-retirement to start his own pizza business in the Chicago suburbs, but has recently confirmed three rare West Coast appearances with Oakland, CA? Noisegate.
Noisegate has been a staple of the Bay Area Experimental scene since the mid 90s, constantly touring, performing, and recording for San Francisco based Tumult Records. After their West Coast dates, Noisegate will continue to the East Coast in support of their new CD, ?uspended Animation.? The band? unique form of drone/ambient has been described as "Shimmering luminescent shards of low-end flowing effortlessly through the glistening darkness while hazy tonal reverberations reflect microscopic textures, grey and austere" and as "breathtaking arrangements of hum and buzz, chime and soothe."

White Out is a sound terrorist collective of two arising from the freedom charged excitement that is NY improv. Armed with an arsenal of live analogue electronics, and infinite percussion: TOM SURGAL and LIN CULBERTSON have conspired to create a new music of the moment. Not to be missed.
I told you they were on hiatus, and now they're back (and truly larger than planet-size). Turtables (Marclay, Otomo, Pierre Henry-influenced) and synthesizer spasm duo are reminiscent of Pierre Henry/Peter Schaffer duos from the 60s (50s, 70s?) with the 90s bite of groups like Pan Sonic.
Free-mad excess in the form of Mike Guarino on drums, guitar and Jake Rodriguez on bass, voice.

Hard Edged and bitter, the music speaks from the heart of five creatures who

EXPECT WILD and CRAZY PARTY CLIMATE!!!! Also excellent intellectual stimulation.

BRUTAL SOUND EFFECTS FESTIVAL 15
An interesting Bay Area band Schematic plays strange serge synths and varied home made kits of varied complexities with a metal detector thrown in. The ever restrained Suitcase Sally reservingly avoids all sunlight and plays 'pink noise' to recombine her DNA to fit in with the "primitives" of the US. She is backed up by a back up band of 2 longhairs and a cone with sunglasses.
Frotherthon is a deluded woman from the future who exists to d/educate the world via sound on the state of things in the future. She has an insect cage on her head with live bugs inside that act as "satellite brains". She has put together a d/educational website for your info here which will help adjust you to the bizarre live show which will include one of her movies: Shock Tunnel & Balwallgrachei. The other member is a hermaphrodite whose head fluctuates between a blinking woof pie and a pharmacutical medicine cabinet like a St Bernards collar giving much needed nourishment for the eyes. No feminity involved.
MUSSY VELASQUEZ+ALPHA BUTS+THE EFFABLE LORD XIADINO
Mussy Velasquez is a talented stripper new on the noise scene with the aimlessness of an ant in the dropped in the Sahara desert but instinctually plays sounds that come out incredibly innovative and WIERD. Alpha Buts are backing her up (duo electronics powerhouse) and the bizarre and Effable Lord Xiadino who is focused right now on detuned scrambled piano processes. Should be a weird combo since their esthetics/architecture are all completely opposite.
RAPED AT A DISCO (RAAD)

The triumphant return of Moe Staiano to ClitStop will reign in the end of summer (or the beginning of SF's short, late summer) with his 12-piece Moe!kestra! performing Piece No. 2: Death by Dildo. Moe was banned over a year ago by the Delivery Room after destroying a beautiful old organ and dousing the room in thousands of tiny pieces of porno-confetti, which is still being cleaned up to this day. Come see a room full of guitars turned into sexual objects turned into guitars turned into sexual objects, plus contrabass, drums, and the spastic Groucho Marx-like conducting of Moe! who will make us happy he's back at clit again.
BONNIE KANE + ERNESTO DIAZ-INFANTE
From NYC, Kane last appeared at Clit a year ago with sax in hand, a 16-second delay and a blow-hard spirit with her hard-hitting free rock group W.O.O. Revelator. This year she teams up with the local prepared-guitar antics of Diaz-Infante who will be making his first appearance at the 'Stop for sure-fire sparks and plenty of aural callesthetics.
SCOTT LOONEY'S RECURSIVE HERETICS

From Chicago, very structured spazz-rock group featuring a bass player from Flying Luttenbachers. Ruins-ish in structure, with a more operatic nature: Lots of surprise twists and turns executed tightly in a post-progrock manner, while still managing to rock. Yes!
99HOOKER + TOM SCANDURA
Ex-Bay Area wildsaxman Hooker returns once again to balls-out with longtime collaborator and spazz drummer Tom Scandura. They played last year's 4th of July outdoor Brutal Sound Effects Festival #13 and mananged to keep the intensity flying accoustically amongst 11 or so loud amplified noise and rock acts which earned them a spot on the ClitComp (track#2). This proper set gives them more of a chance to stretch their limbs and produce a finely tuned and welcome assault to our solarplexes, thank you.
All-star grouping of NYC drummer EHRAN ELISHA, saxophonist and long-ago Coltrane-collaborator JOHN TCHICAI, local saxist FRANCIS WONG, and bass-crackly extrordinaire ADAM LANE will draw lines with chalk in the pavement and show us a new form of group hopscotch for the millenium. Kindegarten teachers--take note!!
