Do you wonder what planet you came from because you appreciate the heck out of Roscoe Mitchells Sound? Are you generally a low-key cat except for when you flip anytime you hear a prepared piano? Do you scour Italian and German Web sites for original-edition ESP and FMP Records? Then youll probably be super into Outer Bounds of Sound, Revolver Records new Sunday-night series featuring local acts operating in the experimental, noise, drone, free jazz, avant-garde, ambient, and minimalist realms. Even if your new-music chops arent that developed, this must-listen music is like nothing else going on in town.
When asked about the idea behind the series, Revolver co-conspirator Steve Zimmerman says, Why not? I mean, I own a record shop, we have the space (if we move some stuff around), and there are a lot of people excited about this, both as performers and listeners.
The lineup on Sunday, December 13, includes Permanent Squid, Via Vengeance, Tony Obr, and Palo Verde from Portland, Oregon.
