Ramshackle Day Parade:
Welcome To Spring

It is that time of year again, it is that time of the month again.

Shawn Pinchbeck is an Edmonton, Alberta, Canada based electroacoustic music composer and media artist. Since 1984, he’s been activily performing, composing, releasing recordings, curating festivals and concerts; and for many years now teaching studio engineering, electroacoustic composition, film sound design, Max/MSP/Jitter, computer interactivity and basic electronics.

AKA Clinker AKA Gary James Joynes. GARY JAMES JOYNES is a sound artist, composer and visual artist from Edmonton, Canada. He is fascinated by the sources of electronic composition and the ever-evolving language of technology; objects and mechanisms stimulate his process. As CLINKER, his work explores meditative spaces and the kinesthetic and synesthetic effects of sound and visuals. As WIND ROSE he will be doing something completely different…

(Gary is not performing as Clinker, he has a new noise project called “WIND ROSE”)

Recently performing in the open mic, this will blow your mind. Guitar harshness broken up by melodic riffs. Definitely excited for this.

The Bohmeians are at it again, who knows what this will sound like, a flock of seagulls attacked by a glass tiger? maybe… I really cant tell you. I cant even show you….But these two cats, you are guaranteed the best.

Together they touch their machines in weird places and make music that sounds like your record collection falling down the stairs as your life flashes before your eyes. You wont believe your ears, your ears will trick your eyes, you’ll taste your smell, and smell your hearing, it tastes like blood, and you bleed zebra pulse.

February RDP Recordings!!

3 Mar

A subtle nice of rip-roaring, floor-sitting noise terror, this month’s ramshackle parade was complete with funky video loops of justin beiber getting shot repeatedly, a vintage restored film with a live created soundtrack and a seriously sick bird tweet distortion jam! the crowd was a bit smaller, perhaps due to the cold, but their enjoyment was as awesome as ever! VIVA NOISE!
