Artist: Fleshtone Aura
Recorded at 1161 Dundas St. West (Inyrdisk Death Match), February 25, 2016.Fleshtone Aura - [excerpt]
Surveying the land and declaring that times and tastes have changed, Kevin Hainey announced an end to his mostly CD-r label Inyrdisk after 11 years of small-run releases. Serving as the release party for Inyrdisk's final release, the Death Match box set, this night was at least as much of a casual hang-out than a wake. After taking stock via a panel looking at the past/present/future of the small-label ecology, the night included four musical sets.
Andrew Zukerman's connections with Inyrdisk include not only his work as a recording artist in groups (Conspiracy of Familiar Objects' No Greek [iyd09] alongside Jon Shapiro and William Davison) and alone (as DJ Longhorn Grille [iyd62] and Charles Balls [iyd03]) but also credits as diverse as album mastering and collage art. Live, he brought his ongoing passive-aggressive comedy of longueurs, challenging the audience with short bursts of noise and extended gaps of silence, triggering anxiety, confusion and laughter.
