Mandelbrut - [excerpt]

Kulture is culture, but louder. This occasional noise night was expertly assembled by David Jones (who performed this night as Hexzuul, but is also a member of Manticore and Bile Sister) and took place in the somewhat unlike setting of the backroom of The Steady, which feels a bit like a joint that got stuck somewhere in mid-transition from a diner to a tiki bar. I've seen Luis Hernandez's Mandelbrut project in collaboration before, but never as a solo effort. it turned out to be the sound of shit going wrong — of entropy, of things breaking. There was a stronger performative element at play in this set, with Hernandez clashing with the physicality of his noisemaking implements, including the very struggle to keep all of the cables plugged in where they should be.
