An experimental outfit that uses experimental techniques and instrumentation plays in Scottsdale tonight.
Who could it be? Lucky Dragons? Yellow Swans? The return of Tempe-based Tent/City?
Not exactly. This Canadian-based ensemble performed at the closing ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics. (Side note: Jesus God. How amazing would it be if Tent/City got back together for an Olympics gig?)
Have a clue yet?
Its ScrapArtsMusic, an ensemble that hails from the free spazz/noise/no-wave capital of Vancouver, British Columbia, and whose shtick includes playing eco-powered percussion. Its important to note, especially for you weirdo noise fans, that the experimentation doesnt really factor in the music a lot of the time, they sound like marching band dropouts but rather in the recycled and repurposed instruments that theyve created from accordion parts, artillery shells, and more.
