JOANN MCNEIL

"While the world at large continues its sluggish, incremental awakening to the embodied artistic brilliance of black women, it would be easy to say that JoAnn McNeil has quietly birthed a collection of living sound and sight fully immersed in the lived-in dystopia that many black women experience on this very same world. The noise of it all (and, yes, in fact “noise” as evidenced by pieces like “Invisa Cell” with its Suzanne Cianni-esque dirge or the ambiance of “Blind Eye” and its Top 40 dance hit in a post Weyland-Yutani world) suggests that nothing from this oeuvre could materialize quietly. Yet, here we are, finally witnessing an artist gently exploding (if you will) from the strange environs of her birthplace of St. Louis (as documented in the photography series “Broken Homes”) and onto stages, galleries, and afro-futurist festivals from St. Louis to Philadelphia." - Alex Smith

KEE AVIL (MONTREAL)

Kee Avil is a solo song project based in Montreal, QC. It combines guitar, voice and electronics into weird song forms that stagger between structure and improvisation. Kee Avil evolved from playing the guitar with broken cymbals and drumsticks into creating strange beats glued together by samples of screws dropped into crystal bowls.

Fritz Pape | JoAnn McNeil | Vulvette

Fritz Pape - (Cincinnati)
Listen - https://soundcloud.com/radioartifact/thehum_ep014-2018-02-07
Influenced by early minimalist composers, German synthesizer experiments, modern classical excursions and slow guitar-noise dirges – an exploration of the tiny crevasses of sound, stretched into infinity for listeners to soak up and vibrate in. Fritz Pape performs frequently under the name Zijnzijn Zijnzijn!, utilizing a swath of guitar pedals, synthesizers and other sound-making devices to sculpt slowly moving, ever-evolving slabs of harmonious sound.

While the world at large continues its sluggish, incremental awakening to the embodied artistic brilliance of black women, it would be easy to say that JoAnn McNeil has quietly birthed a collection of living sound and sight fully immersed in the lived-in dystopia that many black women experience on this very same world. The noise of it all (and, yes, in fact “noise” as evidenced by pieces like “Invisa Cell” with its Suzanne Cianni-esque dirge or the ambiance of “Blind Eye” and its Top 40 dance hit in a post Weyland-Yutani world) suggests that nothing from this oeuvre could materialize quietly.

Though it must be said: JoAnn McNeil is not a noise musician or sonic landscaper, but a being kemetically tethered to this world, speaking in vibrations and alien choral hums. JoAnn McNeil's photography and design are not washed out moments of contemplative exhibitionism, they're active sigil work fused together from a shattered kaleidoscope and pixelated cels mimeographed from Octavia Butler's lost visions. While McNeil's love of creating cut-n-paste soundtracks from glitches that have returned from space with modular synths and various apps remains, it is in the synthesis of the visual, the kinetic, and the spiritual that empowers her work. In the presence of such visionary work as the “Ghost Sheets” series where physiological representations of depression and internal conflicts are navigated through stark, digitally manipulated photographs, it becomes clear: JoAnn McNeil is not a multi-disciplinary artist, she's a self-contained, time displaced spirit vessel with dials set to liberation. - Alex Smith.

Algiers, ONO, Mourning [A] BLKstar, JoAnn McNeil

Dismal Niche presents:

Algiers (Atlanta, GA)
*Dizzying blend of post-punk, industrial and soul music on Matador Records*

ONO (Chicago, IL)
*Long-running cult band from Chicago creating a singular brew of performance art, gospel music, noise, and poetry*

Mourning A BLKstar (Cleveland, OH)
*Experimental Afrofuturist soul music*

JoAnn McNeil (Saint Louis, MO)
*Glitchy post-ambient soundscapes*

DOORS: 7 PM
SHOW: 8 PM
$7

MORE DETAILS BELOW!
________________________________________

Pulling from a divergent set of musical (and nonmusical) influences including post-punk, gospel music, Southern Gothic literature, and insurrectionary politics, Atlanta's ALGIERS has been described as "dystopian soul". This is the musical response that dark times demand, one that not only shakes its fist but deploys it. Locally-informed global citizens, Algiers refuse to sit idly by while most contemporary artists appear perfectly content to sit out the revolution. Not only do Algiers harbor a purposeful sense of obligation in what they do on their latest resistance record The Underside Of Power, but they recognize the roots and thorns of precedent in said resistance.

Formed in 1980, Chicago's ONO are one of those radical groups who’ve earned legendary status as “one of the most influential bands you’ve never heard of” (Village Voice). Their current record label, Moniker Records, describes their aesthetic as an "unholy bitches' brew of noisy snarl, avant-garde R&B, gospel-heavy blackness, queer sensibility and extravagant, performance-art theatrics."

MOURNING [A] BLKSTAR blends classic soul, experimental hip-hop, and post-punk ambience. Led by producer RA Washington, Mourning [A] BLKstar features a trio of dynamic singers—James Longs, LaToya Kent, and Kyle Kidd—and an indeterminate number of musicians. The ensemble traffics in a gritty strain of DIY Afrofuturist soul music, balancing hip-hop production techniques with lo-fi experimentation that bathes sultry grooves in darkness, either in scratchy samples or washed-out synth tones.

While the world at large continues its sluggish, incremental awakening to the embodied artistic brilliance of black women, it would be easy to say that JOANN MCNEIL has quietly birthed a collection of living sound and sight fully immersed in the lived-in dystopia that many black women experience on this very same world. The noise of it all (and, yes, in fact “noise” as evidenced by pieces like “Invisa Cell” with its Suzanne Cianni-esque dirge or the ambiance of “Blind Eye” and its Top 40 dance hit in a post Weyland-Yutani world) suggests that nothing from this oeuvre could materialize quietly. Yet, here we are, finally witnessing an artist gently exploding (if you will) from the strange environs of her birthplace of St. Louis.

NNN Cook (GUM tape release)
JoAnn McNeil
Astro Blackus

This is a safe event:
No sexism, no racism, no ableism, no homophobia, no transphobia, no queerphobia, no fatphobia, no hatefulness allowed. Abusers/assaulters and/or people accused of abuse/assault are not welcome.

It is an honor for Grownup Music to have the opportunity to collaborate with NNN Cook's implacable experimental label Close/Far Recordings. To effectuate this collaboration, nebulosa and Popular Housing will be putting out a split tape on C/F on the next Bruxism (April 26th at the Schlafly Tap Room), but first NNN Cook will be releasing a new album on Grownup Music at the end of this month. Its name is "Crease and Abyss" (GUM008), and it will be available on cassette tape Saturday, March 31st.

To celebrate this release we will be hosting a meditative and contemplative experience at the William A Kerr foundation. Our featured supporting artists are sure to tap into your subconscious while you peacefully delve into some of St Louis' finest soundscapes. As a grounding into the natural world, featured readers will complement our musical selection, thus stimulating both mind and soul in what will surely be a one of a kind reflective experience.

--NNN Cook--
Founder of Close/Far Recordings and paladin of the experimental sound of St Louis, NNN Cook has been on the vanguard for a while. Each of his musical experiments stands alone as a glowing test tube of curious genius and forward thinking adventure. His musical experience transcends the speakers; it moves and sways through the room and its physicality often ensues metamorphosis. He will be releasing his new album "Crease or Abyss" (GUM008) on cassette tape this evening.
Listen: http://www.close-far.com

--JoAnn McNeil--
Worlds expand as soon as JoAnn sits down at the table. Sound evolves slowly but uncontrollably, and when you thought you were there a new landscape breach in front of you. Otherworldly monologue colors the land and brings it flowers or weeds. When the clapping starts, you come to after vanishing into seventeen dimensions, and in deep confusion, you smile.
Listen: https://www.joannmcneil.com

--Astro Blackus--
Armed with a sampler and gazing from behind his mask, Astro Blackus feels a bump on a seemingly flat surface. His compositions are as contemplative as they are stimulatingly dynamic. The sound is manipulated, looped and regurgitated into chimeras of self-reflection and outwards expression. In his mask, we hide, and when the light bounces off we see our own soul trapped by reason.
