RedHouse welcomes Psychedelic Noise Project from UK

Red House Arts Center has become a standout venue in Central New York for experimental musicians, hosting Alva Noto & Byetone from Germany, mudboy from Providence, and Zach Layton, MV Carbon and The Loud Objects from New York City. This trend continues when Red House welcomes Ashtray Navigations and the Flower-Corsano Duo from the Termite Club in the United Kingdom.

Phil Todd, inspired by the UK's underground tape music scene, formed Ashtray Navigations in 1994 in Stoke On Trent, England. The psychedelic noise project defies easy categorization given the diverse nature of Todd's collaborators and the incredible breadth of work Ash Nav has created. Ash Nav consists of Phil Todd (guitar/electronics) and Melanie Delaney, aka Ocelocelot (electronics).

Michael Flower (shahi baaja, a modified electric version of the Indian bulbul tarang) has been involved in a number of solo projects and is best know for his work with Vibracathedral Orchestra. Chris Corsano plays drums and has performed with Paul Flaherty, Jim O'Rourke, Björk, Evan Parker, Jandek, Thurston Moore, Vampire Belt and Six Organs of Admittance among others.

"In compositional breadth, in technical twinkle, in (a)tonal assault, this is a deeply humbling record, the inscrutable blueprint for progress." - Tiny Mix Tapes on The Four Aims

Tickets are $15 general admission, $12 for students and seniors and are available from www.theredhouse.org. For more information contact Mike Intaglietta at 425-0405 or e-mail press@theredhouse.org.
