      Kim Cascone & Gary R. Weisberg

      Widow Jane Mine (on the grounds of the Snyder Estate)
      Rosendale, NY
      (Go to www.meterpool.com/striatium.html for link to Google map and
      directions)
      August 3, 2007 @ 8pm
      Admission: $10


      Sound artists Kim Cascone and Gary R. Weisberg will broadcast dark
      subterranean atmospheres conjured from mangled field recordings and
      other
      unusual sound sources inside an old abandoned mine in upstate NY.
      Come join us among the bat guano and stalactites for an evening of
      supernatural sounds rescued from the hulls of sunken ships. Not to be
      missed!

      Kim Cascone has a long history involving electronic music: he
      received his
      formal training in electronic music at the Berklee College of Music
      in the
      early 1970's, and in 1976 continued his studies at the New School in New
      York City. In the 1980's, after moving to San Francisco and gaining
      experience as an audio technician, Cascone worked with David Lynch as
      Assistant Music Editor on both Twin Peaks and Wild at Heart. Cascone
      left
      the film industry in 1991 to concentrate on Silent Records, a label
      that he
      founded in 1986, transforming it into the U.S.'s premier electronic
      music
      label. At the height of Silent's success, he sold the company in
      early 1996
      to pursue a career as a sound designer and went to work for Thomas
      Dolby's
      company Headspace as a sound designer and composer. After a two-year
      stint
      at Headspace he worked for Staccato Systems as the Director of
      Content where
      he oversaw sound design using algorithmic synthesis for video games.
      Since
      1984, Kim has released more than 30 albums of electronic music and has
      recorded/performed with Merzbow, Keith Rowe, Tony Conrad, Scanner, John
      Tilbury, and Pauline Oliveros among others.
      Cascone was one of the co-founders of the microsound list, which
      focuses on
      issues concerning digital music and laptop performance
      (http://www.microsound.org) and has written for Computer Music
      Journal (MIT
      Press), Artbyte Magazine, Contemporary Music Review, Soundcultures and
      Parachute Journal.


      Gary R. Weisberg began performing improvised music with no formal
      training
      while studying English literature at SUNY New Paltz in the early
      70's. After
      moving to San Francisco in 1976, he was involved with a loosely knit
      collective of jazz and experimental musicians and artists, operating
      a small
      performance space called The Blue Dolphin. During this time he began
      studying electronic music composition at San Francisco State University,
      where he received his bachelor's degree in the same field. During the
      80's
      and early 90's, he maintained a MIDI project studio, producing sound and
      music for visual artists' gallery openings, TV/film and video
      productions,
      as well as recording some of Kim Cascone's early work. Since moving
      back to
      New York's Ulster County, he continues producing CDs of his own
      compositions, working on sound installations for California-based
      sculptor
      Teresa Cunniff, and exploring the possibilities of digital audio art.
