Mesmarize is Mesma Records' event series dedicated to live electronic music. Come join us at Trans-pecos for an evening excursion into the moody regions of electronic and experimental music.
Nicholas Dawson (Bookworms) is a Los Angeles-born, New York-based electronic composer who produces and performs sound works under the name Bookworms. His work is often concerned with various modes of representation and interpretation through audio and non-linear living sonic histories. By way of advanced synthesis, generative sequencing and audio collage, Dawson accesses detuned realities, and conjures harmonics, rhythms and ghosts of the truths which they have come to signify across time and space through repetition...a multi-dimensional blues.
∴ Matt Evans
Matt Evans is a Brooklyn based artist, composer, and percussionist producing recordings, cross-disciplinary productions, and sculptural sound installations through an eco-fictional lens. As a solo artist, Evans produces drum performances and installations that capture the inexpressible absurdity of supermassive phenomenon (e.g. “global warming” or “the internet”) with a focus on the fearlessness of the human individual in the face of such circumstances.
