Ear Ear 

Wednesday, Aug 6 2008
We keep our eyes open as we walk around the city, but we tend to keep our ears closed, avoiding the whoosh of the bus and the conversations of passersby -- or plugging ourselves with earphones. The New York Society for Acoustic Ecology aims to reintroduce us to those things on the sides of our heads (the ears, not the phones). The group runs "deep listening" walks that focus on the sound details of the environment, altering the way you interact with what they call the "urban psychogeography." The event begins on the San Francisco City Hall steps, and is part of the Move>Sound Soundwave Series. Check your earwax at the door.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
