Outliers, Vol. I: Iceland – Live Audio/Visual Show with Deru, Shigeto, Sweatson Klank & Loscil July 10 at Lincoln Hall in ChicagoPosted in Events with tags chicago, deru, loscil, outliers, scenic studios, shigeto, Sweatson Klank on June 25, 2012 by worldromper
Celebrating the release of travel documentary Outliers Vol. 1: Iceland, this unique audio/visual event at Lincoln Hall features multimedia performances by several cutting-edge electronic music producers, including Deru with Scenic, Shigeto, Sweatson Klank and Loscil.
With dramatic landscapes born from volcanic eruptions and a countryside carved out by glaciers, Iceland is a mountainous island of desolate beauty, ancient Viking lore and raw nature: unpolluted and inspiring.
In October 2011 with support from a successful Kickstarter campaign, Chicago film collective Scenic traveled to the remote Icelandic countryside alongside photographers Tim Navis + Kim Holtermand and music composer Deru. With a goal to create a series of improvised, collaborative short films, the group documented their experiences with the stark landscape, cultural traditions and Icelanders encountered along the way.
The resulting full-length documentary – entitled Outliers, Vol. I: Iceland – will be released in June 2012, along with a companion soundtrack compilation featuring thirteen contemporary classical composers and electronic music producers.
To celebrate the release, Scenic will join Deru onstage one evening only for a live, multimedia A/V performance inspired by the journey. Soundtrack contributors Shigeto (Ghostly International), Loscil (Kranky), and Sweatson Klank (Alpha Pup) will perform full sets.
The first 200 ticket holders who arrive are invited to an exclusive live screening of the film and Q&A session with the artists in advance of the show.
Presale tickets to the event cost $20 and are available here: http://www.lincolnhallchicago.com/Shows/07-10-2012+Outliers+Vol+I+Iceland

Check out new music from Seattle artist Subaqueous off the new album Immerge on music blog You’ll Soon Know. Lead single “Gypsy Splash” cloaks a thick, soothing jam with multiple layers and quickly turns bizarre, emerging through fun sonic chunks with a mysterious melody that leaves you wandering – music for modern day nomads.

As half of dubstep’s unstoppable forward motion has splayed out Skrillex-style into aggressive, mid-range rave sounds dominated by shirtless bros and tweens, the other half has moved towards the more sensual, sexy, melodic side of midtempo bass music for a more holistic experience.
Pressha is one of the most talented DJs I know, always with his ear to the ground for the freshest, newest sounds. In this mix “Everything In Moderation,” he doses out some of the choicest bass music around for your Friday listening pleasure.

His music not only encompasses the most cutting edge of technology but in his recent album “An Empty Bliss Beyond This World” he’s managed to meld the 21st century with the beautiful crackle of the beginning of the last century too.
