On Saturday, April 14th, ATA Gallery's flagship exhibition series OTHER CINEMA presents the first show in its Psychedelia series, resonating with the switched-on groove of the analog synthesizer subculture.
Headlining is John Davis’ live-track to Ira Cohen’s legendary Invasion of the Thunderbolt Pagoda.
PLUS: We welcome back to the Bay Area Ms. Lori Varga, who cleverly demonstrates 9 “modified” oddities from her mini-synth collection, inviting audience into hands-on experience!
David Cox shows off both the impossibly funky Optigan and also its iteration as an iPhone app!
Concluding the evening is Matthew Bate’s What the Future Sounded Like, a half-hr. BBC doc on the early synth scene in ‘60s England, with clips of Roxy Music-era Brian Eno, Hawkwind, and Dr. Who.
Come early for Bob Moog clips, early Soviet Theremin, Raymond Scott initiatives, Negativland Boopers, and bio-feedback bliss!
Doors open at 8pm; show at 8:30pm.
Admission is $6.66
