Ashley Paul plays reeds, unique string instruments, electronics and sings. Her dream-like music juxtaposes aggressive, sustained high pitched blasts, floating vocals, clattering strings and bells, cry-like saxophones and is somehow tied together by oddly melodic songs. In the past year she performed with Loren connors, Aki Onda, Joe Morris, and Greg Kelley, premiered a new work by Phill Niblock for soprano saxophone and bowed crotales (written for her and Eli Keszler), performed as part of the US premiere of Mauricio Kagel’s masterpiece ‘Der Schall’ at Merkin Concert Hall in New York and was heard in a live feature on wzbc’s Rare Frequency. Additionally, Ashley performs regularly with Anthony Coleman in duo, trio and on his recent New World Records release, plays duo with Eli Keszler and has recently begun performing solo, sharing the stage with Thurston Moore, Mats Gustaffson, Chris Corsano and others.

JUNE 15th @ Bozarts


This will be the first public performance held at Toledo’s newest fine art and music gallery–Bozarts (155 South St. Claire). The show will include Naomi Elizabeth (L.A. Cesspit Pop), Corephallism (Boston Sextronics), Josh Hydeman (Portland Damage), and me, Dr. Rhomboid Goatcabin (Toledo Audiometric Decay). At a cost of a mere $3 the show will be a bargain. There will also be information as to obtaining a membership to Bozarts which should be of particular interest to those of the artistic persuasion, as it provides an opportunity to show and sell your art, music, clothing, etc.

Jack Wright (saxophone)
Bob Marsh (violin, voice)

Jack Wright has been playing improvised music exclusively since the 1970s. After teaching at Temple University, he left the academic world. Through years of near constant touring, often performing for audiences in cities and towns where improvised music had never before been heard, he came to be regarded as something of an underground legend. He has deliberately eschewed the conventions and socio-aesthetic limitations of musical careerism to pursue his own vision. Although his de-professionalized approach sets him apart from most musicians at his level of accomplishment, his art has always grown, expanded, and synthesized new information. He is unquestionably an original and virtuosic saxophonist, a master improviser who is deeply lyrical, with humor never far away. Today Wright tours frequently in Europe and North America, He has made over 40 recordings, performed in over 20 countries, and written extensively about music and society for several publications.

Bob Marsh is a well seasoned improviser whose work has involved shaping sounds words images ideas. Originally from Detroit, Marsh arrived in the Bay Area in 2000 after ten years in Chicago where he played with most of the avant improvisers in that rich and varied scene.
He currently is active with cello, accordion, violin, voice, vibraphone and electronics.

Ryan Jewell (snare)
Larry Marotta (guitar)
Marina Peterson (cello)

Jewell, Marotta and Peterson are very active soloist as well as busy collaborators all based in Ohio,constantly performing in some of the most challenging and provocative settings, participating in both improvised and composed music in Europe and North America.

J Guy Laughlin

Bbob Drake (Fluxmonkey)

J Guy Laughlin (percussion) and Bbob Drake (synthesizers)
Fluxmonkey: There are two *Bob Drakes* who build experimental instruments, play banjo, and have a penchant for improvised/avant garde musics. This is the one who used to play in the Whistle Pigs from Zenar and Red Dark Sweet, not the one from Thinking Plague and 5UUs. After completing an 5-year apprenticeship as a violin maker, he’s focused on original electroacoustic instruments, installations, and modular synthesis.

J. Guy Laughlin Jr. is a percussionist/sound artist from Cleveland, active in the city’s experimental music community. After amassing and unlearning a collegiate education in jazz, he has pursued an interest in the physical properties of percussion, particularly electro-acoustic possibilities.

Burning Star Core

C. Spencer Yeh was born in Taipei, Taiwan 1975, moved to the US in 1980; studied radio/television/film at Northwestern University, and is now based out of Cincinnati, Ohio. Yeh is active both as a solo and ensemble artist, as well as with his primary ‘organized sound’ project, Burning Star Core. As an improviser, Yeh has focused on developing a personal vocabulary using violin, voice, and electronics. As a sound organizer/composer, Yeh works with all aspects available surrounding a work, aurally and physically, as elements key to the cumulative experience. He is concerned not only with the sensual aspects of sound, but the gestural qualities as well. Yeh has performed alongside and collaborated with a deep and ever-growing list of artists and groups including Tony Conrad, Evan Parker, Thurston Moore, The New Humans with Vito Acconci, Paul Flaherty and Chris Corsano, John Wiese, Aaron Dilloway, John Olson and the Graveyards, Amy Granat, Jutta Koether, LaDonna Smith, Carlos Giffoni, Okkyung Lee, Atsuhiro Ito, Lasse Marhaug, Audrey Chen, Nate Wooley, JP Feliciano, Rafael Toral, Rhys Chatham’s Guitar Trio All-Stars, Damo Suzuki’s Network, and many others, and has performed across the U.S.A. and Europe in a variety of settings and festivals. Most recently he participated in the 24 Hour Drone People project in Stockholm (and the abbreviated 5 hour version in Amsterdam), alongside artists such as CM Von Hauswolff, Mika Vainio, Joachim Nordwall, BJ Nilsen, Hildur Gudnadottir, Hild Sofie Tafjord, and Mark Wastell. He has also had visual art and video works presented internationally

They are a Cincinnati (Ohio) duo, they play an amorphous, hyper-amplified free noise with blasting screaming horn squeals and wavering frequencies, sounding more like electronics, than acoustic woodwinds. “wild and unyielding”

Gunslingers

French deconstructionist trio who needed to abuse the artifacts of some lost rock synthesis in one total, furious and quintessential record, like an evil paradox of rock. Expect pure apotheosis of wild horror biker freakouts, acid avant-punk and trippy psych-noise with no respite from the action’s breakneck speed. Gregory Raimo aka GR’s incriminating unspoken yaya words and unparalleled orgiastic guitar savagery over control, spacey analog effects fulminations and feedbacks culminating with Matthieu Canaguier’s hypnotic and castrationist ritual thunder bass, and Antoine Hadjioannou’s prophetic mad with scalp crashing down drums-machete.Be prepared for a constant state of shock

Terminal Lovers

Hot blasting soul-fired purebred rock, melodic, twisted and perverse rock anthems gone terribly wrong, experimental demonic pop, hypertense deranged freak ‘n’ roll — A strange fuck of a band. The true meaning of bold POST rock standing with razorsharp knives acting as its very outpost.
