ASAC show on 4/20!

Join the Albany Sonic Arts Collective for an evening of deep synth zones and noise....Saturday April 20th at the Upstate Artists' Guild! Synthesizer explorers Afterlife take their thick and blissful tones on the road, leaving Brooklyn for a bit and bringing compatriot Mike Chau of Bedroom along with them. A trio collaboration between Fossils from the Sun and Urkas will round out the evening. All for five bucks, don't miss it!

 Saturday April 20th

Upstate Artists Guild
247 Lark St. in Albany



FfrtheSun vs. URKAS
 Afterlife has released tapes and vinyl on outstanding labels like Stunned, Hooker Vision, and their own Tranquility Tapes. Ryan McGill and Franklin Teagle incorporate elements of classic kosmiche electronic music, filtered through a 21st century perspective, resulting in a gentle yet massive sound. Teagle curated the Tranquility Tapes Series at the Stone in New York City in February 2013, and his label has released a ton of amazing music in the past few years.

Mike Chau's Bedroom has released 3 tapes for Tranquility Tapes. His patient, drifting style of synth work is equal parts beauty and dread.

Fossils from the Sun is Albany's Ray Hare, who also plays in Century Plants and Burnt Hills. He's released material on such fine labels as Digitalis, Tape Drift, and House of Alchemy. Urkas are the duo of Brooklyn's Russ Alderson (Xanthocephalus) and Albany's Mike Griffin (Parashi, Burnt Hills). They'll collaborate using synth, bass, tapes, voices, and metal objects.
