LAMPO John Wiese
Saturday, May 12, 2012 at 8:00 PM (CDT)
In his Lampo debut, John Wiese will present three new works — a quad diffusion of "Magical Crystal Blah," an all-new iteration of "Battery Instruments," and a concrète improvisation. Expect an immersive sonic experience, shaped by John's distinctive and precise use of stereo panning.
John Wiese (b. 1977, Ft. Leavenworth, KS) works primarily in recorded and performed sound with a focus on installation and multi-channel diffusions, as well as scoring for large ensembles. Wiese is involved in multiple ongoing projects including the concrète grindcore band Sissy Spacek, and collaborations with Evan Parker, C. Spencer Yeh, Aaron Dilloway, Kevin Drumm, Lasse Marhaug, and others. In 2011 he released his 100th 7-inch record, celebrated with a retrospective exhibit and monograph. Many of these recordings were published on his Helicopter label, and on more than 50 independent labels from around the world. Wiese has toured extensively and has appeared at several leading international festivals. He lives and works in Los Angeles.
This performance is presented in partnership with Lampo. Founded in 1997, Lampo is a non-profit organization for experimental music, sound art and intermedia projects.
