Latitudes 10: Receptacles and Degradient

Event, EV.LAT.2019.06.13

Receptacles wilfully instigate and manipulate an elasticity of form, key, tempo and meter. The absurdist, spoken- word lyrics act as the lynchpin in the reckless, hectic, headlong, joyful collision of rhythms and riffs. An anarchistic relationship to group dynamics ensures a strong, original, unified sound, where the sum is more than the parts, and yet the parts are more than the sum. DEGRADIENT: After more than a decade of maintaining poly-stylistic sideman duties and long-distance collaborations with former Chicago comrades, composer/performer Kyle Bruckmann finally busts out as bandleader of a Bay Area ensemble. Gleefully colliding elements of skronk, fried analog noise, and blackened R.I.O. within a Creative Music framework, DEGRADIENT adds a significant chunk of heavy to his signature gimmicks of jittery polyrhythmic clatter, formal complexity, gallows humor, and all-around sensory overload. This concert took place on June 13, 2019 at the Center for New Music in San Francisco.
