Recorded at Double Double Land (NASA – Noise Against Sexual Assault), July 10, 2016.Brigitte Bardon't + SlowPitchSound - Sylvia Anne Virginia [forest noise scene redux] [excerpt]
Envisioned as "a night of noise, dark electronic, and doom rock in support of sexual assault survivors and in solidarity with Larkin Grimm", this event was programmed as a counter-gig to Swans' local appearance. It was also an attempt for DIY spaces to face up to the problems of taking responsibility for what happens within their walls and to begin a discussion of some "best practices" to create safer spaces.
Kristel Jax enlisted the assistance of turntablist Cheldon Paterson (a.k.a. SlowPitchSound) to add some extra noise to this piece. After building up their layers of sound-loops, both journeyed into the crowd — Jax providing some harrowing vocals while Paterson held a tape deck up to audience members' ears, adding a hyperspacialized sonic sheen.
