Show And Tell presents a night of beautiful outsider electronic music...
///***the Algebra of Need***\\\ (Pleasure Boat Records)
After over a year hiatus from music, the Algebra of Need is returning with even more harrowing and outer-galactic sounds than you've ever known to exist.
"The 29 AON tracks I've heard (culled from three CDs) are staggeringly accomplished. Nobody in this city—or on this planet, for that matter—sounds like the Algebra of Need. Her pieces range from 47 seconds to 20 minutes, and they follow circuitous paths to seldom-trod regions abounding with highly unusual tones and bizarrely charming tunes. Some tracks boast a monomaniacal, hypnotic quality; others move in unpredictable spasms and lurches. But no matter the methodology, they spellbind with the sure grip of genius. It might seem hyperbolic, but I think that the Algebra of Need is a maverick on the level of Aphex Twin and Raymond Scott."
- Dave Segal, The Stranger
\\\***Logic Probe***/// (Dustortoin)
Logic Probe’s hard-edged, heady yet melodic sound is created via complex web of homemade electronics, circuit-bent keyboards, and laptop programming.
They have 6 full length self released albums, have composed remixes and soundtracks for local bands and filmmakers and have shared the stage with notable acts such as Alex Smoke, Telefon Tel Aviv, Apparat, Lusine, Uberzone, Proem, DOSC and Richard Devine. Their unique sound is characterized by sultry melodic synth lines, deep distorted bass, chaotic drum patterns layered on top of glitched-out mechanized rhythms. Derek and Dave independently construct sections and tracks for each song and bring them together on the fly to create a densely packed architecture that is revealed in their enigmatic improvised live sets and recordings.
