CHOBO - [excerpt]

A summertime showcase for some "music by and for weirdos" on the Arachnidiscs label, this night brought some ambient noise and noisy ambiance to College Street's Tiger Bar (a cool destination for small-scale indie shows about six-seven years ago and now reactivated). Closing things out with a different sort of sonic flavour was this project from Jessica Cho and Benjamin Boles, applying improvisatory techniques to techno-styled electronic music. Keyb riffs and rhythmic twists would get tossed back and forth between the pair, sometimes being discarded and sometimes woven into the ongoing development of the piece, making it approachable as "head" music (to watch and consider for the realtime decision-making) or just as booty-shaking stream-of-consciousness. [Their Arachnidiscs tape dropped a few months ago.]
