We’re very excited to welcome Seoul, Korea’s Hong Chulki on his first tour of the US. Part of the small but fantastically active and fascinating Seoul noise and improvisation scene, Hong (family names first in Korean) generates sound by “playing” a turntable, using its motor and stylus to generate electro-acoustic sound. His releases range from improvisation that sounds like malfunctioning clocks to coruscating noise walls, so we’re intrigued to see what he’ll bring here, solo and in duo with Bryan Eubanks, the itinerant electronics player. Check out the self-made electronic instrument he’s been developing for years.

From Philly, Ruez returns with improbable computer sounds. Sebastian Darkly Petsu, of MPSP (with Mark Price) presents a set of musical cassette mangle. You will be there.

Hong Chulki was born in 1976, Seoul, South Korea. He is an improvised/noise musician. His selection of instruments includes turntables (without cartridge), mixing board feedback, laptop, and other electronics. One of his central projects is astronoise (the first noise act of South Korea in 1997) with Choi Joonyong. After several years of playing guitar in a few indie rock bands and spending time for military service around 2003, he began to deviate from the more conventional way of making/listening music and to explore the area of free improvisation with everyday record/playback devices such as CD players, MD recorders and turntables. Since then he has developed his interest in collective non-idiomatic improvisation with acoustic/electronic noise objects. He participated initially in Bulgasari, the first monthly free music concert series in Seoul organized by Sato Yukie and later co-founded RELAY, the free improvisation meeting directed by Ryu Hankil.

Bryan Eubanks (b. 1977, WA.) is a musician primarily active within the traditions of experimental and live electronic music. He works with unstable instruments that incorporate open-circuits, samplers, radio transmission, feedback, digital synthesis, the soprano saxophone, and other acoustic instruments. His compositions and installations involve practical research into computer music, generative composition, electronics, and sound localization in an effort to bring into being situations that examine transformations in the perception of sonic space/time.

Eric Laska is a musician and assorted media artist from New York, currently living and working in Philadelphia. Examples from recent work and works-in-progress focus on the proliferation of sounds from localized material processes (Chicago Equinix, Pro Remote), arranging improvised music for extended periods of time (Extended Improvisation for Gallery Hours forthcoming), and the composing of electronic music based on material considerations such as power consumption (Vigilance Improvisations). Recent projects for the Internet include the sound application Impulse Blasts and the streaming installation Quartet With Pyramid Scheme, the latter conceived in collaboration with the respective members of said quartet- Jordan Topiel Paul, Richard Kamerman, and Reed Evan Rosenberg. In addition he is part of the internet surf club Double Happiness, who are represented in the New Museum of New York’s Younger Than Jesus: Artist Directory, and an editor/co-founder of the websites Lateral Addition and funvac.
Ruez is an infrequent recording/production alias.

Sebastian Darkly Petsu makes sound art centered on live manipulation of cassettes and the components used to play them. He started layering found and repurposed tapes with the Rain of Belle Isle duo. More recently he’s been incorporating controlled tape deck feedback, as well as recognizable snippets of other people’s songs, into his current duo project MPSP. Whether solo or in collaboration he aims to create a combined sense of pulsing, swirling, and growling.
