On November 7, The Outpost will be hosting a performance by three exciting local musicians who are playing as a trio for the first time. Check out their bio’s below, listed in ascending order by the place of each artist’s name in the food chain.

G. Lucas Crane: “How many different ways can the 3 min. of violin be combined with the 2 min of car horns down a windy street?” Crane is a sound artist, performer, and musician whose work focuses on information anxiety, media confusion, and recycled technology. Using a combination of field recordings culled from the underbelly of the contemporary sonic media landscape and homemade electronic instruments, oscillators and broken machines, he creates compositions and performances as a reaction to, and illustration of, our information detritus choked times. Crane also plays tapes and sings in the band Woods.

Greg Fox: “The Explanations Will Not Explain.” Fox is a multi-instrumentalist currently residing in Ridgewood, NY. He was named “Best Drummer in NYC” in the Village Voice’s 2011 Best of New York issue, and has been described by Ben Ratliff (NY Times) as being “one of the most exciting drummers I’ve seen recently in any kind of music.” 

Ed Bear: “All the coolest material things I’ve ever discovered in this giant world have come out of the trash.” One half of the duo Twistycat, Bear plays baritone saxophone in site-specific electroacoustic performances. He’s also an electrical engineer who repurposes outdated technology for new uses. Check out Bear’s Exitrip project, which enlists a number of artists to turn “obsolete” iPod Nano FM transmitters into creative tools.
