Where Are You From?


#185

Hey I’m from Portland, Or. Active in the Noise scene since 2005 as Soup Purse. Now primarily do a project called Grease Envelope (https://sdmpdx.bandcamp.com/album/dec15mber-4-grease-envelope-initial-public-release-sdm-030), and play shows around the stranger reaches of the techno/noise/free improvisation scenes here.

I also do a noisy dub techno duo project called Data Tombs.

We are opening for Luke Vibert tonight at the Bithouse Saloon and I am nervous as fuck! Send me vibes.

I’m also one of the folks active in the free tekno scene around the Autonomous Mutant Festival and may start a thread about that. For the unawares that is a 22 year old party seeded by Spiral Tribe in 1996. From whom an 18 year old me bought my first tapes of underground jungle tapes in the basement of my college cafeteria that same year!

Here is a fun vid of a noise performance I did a bit ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-PniGca-r2A
(I’m opening for Justice Yeldhelm if you’ve ever heard of him and thus the story). If thats your thing I was also in a doc called People who do Noise around an hour and seven minutes in.

Looking forward to contributing to the great discussions here. Been lurking and playing mixes found here for a few weeks.

Originally from New Zealand, studied in Auckland and produced pretty abstract electronic stuff until falling in love with JA dancehall… now living in Vancouver, BC Canada, still produce and select dancehall but have this PIHMS project leading me back towards my roots in electronic and love for garage, 2 step, jungle, tribal and more recently uk funky… which lead me here!

#200

I’m in Jersey City, NJ. Cool thing happening here. It’s cheaper than living in most of NYC so there are a lot of creative types around.

Plenty of experimental electronic music in town and I freelance all over the place so the location is pretty sick!


#201

how’s the lgbtq community in jersey city


#202

I dont know a ton on that front. Most of the shows I go to are very inclusive in general so you meet all types


#203

I’m from Geneva Switzerland.
We used to have a vibrant squat scene, but now have only remnants of those that turned into “proper” clubs.
Cool things do happen though both in the established clubs and some nice more fringe like events also take place.

There is a need for more daring programming, but I can’t complain really.


#204

considering it’s not the southeast US i tend to forget it’s a /little/ easier elsewhere than here


#205

Seems to have vanished in my hometown, or changed in ways I don’t know. Maybe people show up at the club on certain special nights, but the average Saturday is dead. Or maybe I don’t go out late enough :smile:


#206

What’s happening in Chattanooga these days? Have relatives I need to visit there…
