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.
