Stranded presents: Gate (NZ), Meg Baird, Jim Haynes
GATE is a free noise project of New Zealander Michael Morley, which began in the mid-'90s. As a member of the experimental rock group The Dead C., Morley is known for thick, sonic improvisations on guitar and electronics. Gate releases have appeared on several cutting-edge labels including Table of The Elements, Siltbreeze, Ba Da Bing and Morley's own Precious Metal imprint. For this rare performance in San Francisco, Gate will feature a three-piece band including Morley, Gabie Strong and Christopher Reid Martin.
MEG BAIRD is a founding member of the band Espers. Her solo work on Drag City offers ample open space for her radiant voice and finger-picked guitar. After more than a decade as a fixture in Philadelphia's musical scene, Baird moved to San Francisco where she joined forces (as drummer and lead vocalist) with members of Comets On Fire to form the moody and thunderous Heron Oblivion whose debut album was released on Sub Pop earlier this year.
JIM HAYNES is an artist defining his work through the phrase, "I rust things." The statement embraces a multiplicity of meanings across various media. Through sound, Haynes investigate these properties of corrosion, specifically on how decay parallels and relates to the perception of time when cycles of activity collapse into stasis, and how that stasis can rupture when any number of pressures are applied. These result from a cross-contamination of ultrasound detection, shortwave reception, moribund radiophonic exploration, and/or electro-magnetic disruption. Blight. Dislocation. Subcutaneousness. Toxicity. Brackishness. Psychic unease.
