Pan Sonic's Ilpo Väisänen, Dirk Dresselhaus (Schneider TM) will weave together all sorts of electronic and electroacoustic badassery and present a unique performance of improvised music for treated electric guitar, modular synth and rhythm devices. Collectively, die Angel model a complex physicality through raw, elemental inputs, exploring a flux of reactive feedback processes and mutating, unstructured sonic states generated from crackling fusions of electronics, drums, electric guitar and field recordings warped and riddled with FX. They basically sound like Pan Sonic at their most intricate and visceral.

X A M B U C A is an international concept multimedia/music performance group consisting of sound artist Chandra Shukla (ex-Psychic TV) and Elisa Faires. X A M B U C A is an ongoing multimedia collective of a constant Chandra Shukla with help from several other trusted authorities in the past; namely RK Faulhaber, Lux Vibratus (Chrome), Dave Jones (Sturgeon Hoof), Elisa Faires, Larry Thrasher, Todd Mellors (Saifir), M.S. Waldron along with the video expertise of Jason Scott Furr. The crew has been seen if not heard sonically feeding the beast known as X A M B U C A.
