Groupthink @ Richard Lainhart tribute in Brooklyn, 3/4
« on: March 01, 2012, 06:22:39 PM »
Groupthink, my duo with guitarist/looper Edward Yuhas, will be performing this Sunday, March 4, in Brooklyn @ Roulette as part of a tribute and sonic memorial to my friend & colleague, the late Richard Lainhart.

Groupthink will be performing, along with Jordan Rudess (renowned Dream Theater member & keyboardist/synthesist), Ron Goldberg, and many others, as part of a 15-strong ensemble of sound artists dubbed the Orchestra of the Future. The Orchestra was Richard's last realized project, wherein various improvisors provide the soundtrack to his wonderfully designed collage-noir films culled from 30s & 40s tech, med, & instructional clips. The films themselves merge sci-fi imagery with the kinds of science-fair docs lifted from decades-old high-school labs.

Groupthink utilizes guitars, iPhones, loops, samples, found objects, percussives, and voice effects to inaugurate strange ambient climes & esoteric soundscapes possessed of various odd pulsations. We are honored to be part of this Sunday's event, and hope those of you in the area will attend to pay tribute to one of the most unsung innovators of contemporary electronic, ambient, and drone music.
