Binarium 035: Night at Noon, Helton/Jindra-I, Infant Mortality Rate
The Binarium Sound Series is a monthly experimental music series in Houston, Texas focused on showcasing noise, abstract electronica, free jazz, dance and film with a strong interest in new modalities of musical expression. The programs are chosen with careful consideration to showcase a balanced variety of styles. We are dedicated to attracting a broad and diverse audience and to give the the public opportunities to directly experience the work of Houston's leading musical innovators.
Night At Noon is an ritual-ambient music / visual project of Brian Traylor and friends. With swarming deep esoteric sounds, the music opens up sensory gateways to explore the mystical and unknown reaches of the psyche's sound consciousness. While a deeply personal experience, this type of music can strike a common chord in many initiates of sonic exploration.
Houston's Infant Mortality Rate started performing live in the late 1980s as 1/5th of the noise band Turmoil in the Toybox, playing a variety of homemade electronics, random noisy things, and prepared tapes. In the early 1990s, he joined up with the psych/punk band Sad Pygmy, providing spacey theremin sounds and other electronics. Releasing his own music since 1991, IMR mixes homemade and circuit-bent electronic sources with found objects, samples/loops/collages, a toy or two, and the occasional vintage analog synth to create psychologically charged and complex soundworks.
'Thomas Helton - I' is a 30 minute video art collaboration between Thomas Helton and Jonathan Jindra that the two have been working on for the past nine months. Tonight is the premier of the video.
