Jake Meginsky

When: Fri., April 8, 8 p.m. 2016

In the hands of electronic sound artist Jake Meginsky, the song “Last Mistress” by Kim Gordon and Bill Nace’s experimental music duo Body/Head, transforms from an electric-guitar grind into a nearly 14-minute mashup of white noise, minimal beats and ghostly vocals. Seemingly more into creating moods than songs, Meginsky digs into dub, house, avant-jazz and West African percussion to create the type of electronica showcased on his solo LP Vandals. The sonic architect, who has shown his artistry through sound installations everywhere from Bennington College to Beijing’s Today Art Museum, performs as part of the Signals Experimental Media Art Series. A discussion and Q&A session follow.

Price: Free.
