March 31, 2017, Friday - Noise Night at Gamut Gallery


Time: 7-11pm

Location: Gamut Gallery, 717 S 10th Street

Noise Night [Glitch Art is Dead: Minneapolis]

To celebrate the close of the [Glitch Art is Dead: Minneapolis] exhibition and event series, Gamut Gallery welcomes Alex Kmett of Zombie Bite to curate a night of live a/v performances in the gallery. Noise Night will feature influential makers in the local noise music scene including Albert Elmore, Seth Van Horn, and John Vance doing their latest solo projects PD, Black Lotus, and Trigger Alert. Fresh off a West Coast tour, local power electronics act Gnawed will also take the stage, as well as out-of-towners Frightened Moon (Chicago), and VJ Steve Killingbeck. This event runs 7-11pm Friday, March 31st and admission is $10 at the door.


Noise music shares the same spirit and philosophy of glitch art. Both use various analog and digital data manipulation techniques to intentionally corrupt files, generate chaos and innovate new ways to explore visuals and sound. Inherently experimental and often more esoteric than musical, these musicians escape traditional sonic confines in favor of exploration using electronic samplers, synths, guitar pedals, heavy processing, reverb, microphones and feedback. Lots of feedback.


Noise Night will be the final opportunity to view the “Glitch Art is Dead: Minneapolis” exhibition, a collection of glitch works from over 80 artists that represent a total of 23 countries. Over 300 individuals from across the world submitted in excess of 2,000 works to the open call. Co-curators and organizers Miles Taylor (Minneapolis), Aleksandra PieĹ„kosz (Kraków), and Zoe Stawska (Warsaw) distinguished stylistic subgenres, dividing the selected works by technique to highlight the variety of mediums, inspirations, and conceptions found within the glitch art community.
