Institute 193 and WRFL 88.1 FM Radio Free Lexington are pleased to present the second in an ongoing series of experimental music performances.
Flanger Magazine may very well be a magazine someday. So far it has been a cassette label, a blog, a radio show (on Louisville's new to the FM dial ARTxFM/WXOX), and more frequently in recent years a solo and collaborative musical recording and performance project. Comprised live of Chris Bush and Ben Zoeller (both known for their work in the band Caboladies with Eric Lanham), Flanger Magazine is a largely improvised wave of freeform and pastoral electronic sound. Blasts of sparse analog cacophony give way to blissful orchestral drone — clattering metallic drum machine melts gently into acoustic lullabies. These sounds- at once turbulent and calm are often accompanied with mind bending visuals created by the band for a fully immersive experience.
