Concept returns for our fourth event, and 1-year anniversary:
Concept 04: The Marble Index
by Carlos Souffront (Interdimensional Transmissions)
"And from my pillow, looking forth by light
of moon or favouring stars, I could behold
The antechapel where the statue stood
of Newton with his prism and silent face,
The marble index of a mind for ever
Voyaging through strange seas of Thought, alone."
– from "The Prelude" by William Wordsworth
With opening vibes by:
Concept alumni Mossmoss aka Mattie Bowen (As You Like It)
About Carlos Souffront –
Carlos Souffront is a music gourmet, a true DJ's DJ. His taste is rich and vast and he has the unique ability to create deeply rhythmic narratives that offer unexpected and exotic spices. He mastered his deep mixing skills with a cassette deck and a belt drive turntable in his father's den in Troy, home of contemporaries such as Mike Servito, Tadd Mullinex and Matt Dear. Equally entrenched in indie rock, post punk, experimental music, ambient, rock, house, and techno, Carlos was always a man of many worlds - with an ability to traverse though them with an unique imagination. There is a mood to his search within sound, something that is heavy, deep yet gritty. Like many Caribbean transplants that ends up in northern colder climates, he wonders where our rhythmic complexity is. For him it is effortless and endlessly surprising to the listener.
Carlos is an important component of the Interdimensional Transmissions parties, bringing a loose yet tight moody deepness and an ever unexpected edge. At the original No Way Back party, he demanded truth in advertising, pushing us to and then past the 12 hour mark. He has participated in the studio with Ectomorph, and also performed alongside some of their live performances.
It is all too rare to find someone within the electronic music spectrum that can be called an original, that you can only really explain to someone who experienced them on the dance floor, usually just by saying "that's so" and saying their name. Carlos is one of those rarities.
About Mossmoss / Mattie Bowen –
Mossmoss (aka Mattie Bowen) is a Scottish born dj and producer with an intense interest in explorative music. With a keen ear and eye for detail, he is an artist by nature. His wandering sets paint landscapes of light and dark patterns, textures, and strange melody, heavily relying on atmosphere and tension. Mattie's inspiration draws from the organic details of existence, the tiny pieces most overlook in exchange for the big-picture rush of an ever changing modern world. His mind deeply set to explore these facets and to share his exploration in all forms to those that might look and listen. Mossmoss currently resides San Francisco and draws on The City and its colorful nightlife for constant immersive inspiration.
About Concept –
Concept is an experiment in musical communication.
Concept offers accomplished DJ's the opportunity to select a theme or idea - a concept - to interpret through music. The artist selects both the concept, and its interpretation, and then presents that interpretation in a live set.
Though artists may include dance music in their Concept, doing so is not required or expected.
And because we believe that the audience must have the opportunity to fully engage with the artists' creative expression, our comfortable environment supports the deep listening experience.
