      The Flashbulb

      Acousmatic, Tape music, IDM , Classical, Glitch

      Born in 1978 and raised in the sketchy Ashburn district of South Chicago, Benn Jordan began playing -influenced guitar before reaching the age of attending school. Without any proper musical training, his awkward style of inverted guitar playing and composition knew few restrictions and eventually panned out into full blown albums recorded on tape machines in his bedroom in the mid 1990’s. Being a one man band, Jordan grew quite fond of electronic instruments, which for a period of a few years dominated his compositions as he gained worldwide notoriety as an avant-garde electronic musician using the name “The Flashbulb”.


      Bartel

      Electronic, Experimental, Ambient

      BARTEL was formed in 2008. May of 2009 marked the release of the debut E.P on Alphabasic Records, Chicago. Bartel’s music has been described as “haunting, yet melodic; down-tempo, yet driving. Swelling ambient soundscapes meet with deep glitch cuts, while a dub sensibility keeps it all sounding like a distant memory.” More to the the point, the Bartel aesthetic explores the intersection between ultra- modern synthesis, location recording, and experimental sound design; encouraging an approach to song writing which is both technical and cinematic.


      Cost: General admission to see The Flashbulb and Bartel at The Center SF. Show starts at 8PM and continues until 1AM. ID required at the door. Pre-Sale 14.71
