Showcase of Nashville electronic music at The End Oct. 11th 9PM. Link goes to this week's Nashville Scene write-up about the local electronic musicians.
In short, Area 615 is a fine survey of what gets called electronic music these days. Contributors like Satellite City and Callisto (both side projects featuring members of local band Venus Hum) bring an appreciation for recent trends and ideas--e.g., the "glitch" style of clicking and popping noises promulgated by the German label Mille Plateaux. Notably different, but hardly out of place here, is Mr. Natural, who uses contact microphones, guitar pickups and the surfaces of objects to create what could appropriately be called sound explorations. His approach shares a kinship with a totally different group of musicians, among them San Francisco's Loren Chasse and the UK's Jonathan Coleclough, who electronically process field recordings to create pieces that can be at once gentle and disorienting.
