02.04 // 1st Meet Up : Diabetes & Digital Technology / Workshop – Organized & moderated by Dimitri Katz
03.04 // 7PM -?GORDON ASHWORTH?-?performance
Portland-based?Gordon Ashworth, who in a previous incarnation (as Oscillating Innards CAEN, Knelt Rote) delivered an altogether more brutal take on experimental music before planting his feet firmly in the world of shimmering, layered drones.
Under the Concern moniker, Ashworth “proceeds to completely obliterate the vast majority of what passes for contemporary drone with a colossal shimmer that sounds like Tim Hecker reconfiguring classic Raga structures into something almost unspeakably beautiful. Amazing music” (Boomkat).
