The evening is organized in three parts: White Gloves and the Party Manners, Mongst, and Psychic Turbercolosis open the event. Chris Corsano headlines the second set with an improv drum session. The third and final set focuses on harsh noise with Black Leather Jesus and the Rita/Mass Marriage. Spellbound by freely improvised music in the mid-1990s, CHRIS CORSANO began a long-standing music partnership with Paul Flaherty in 1998. A move to the UK in 2005 led Corsano to develop an expanded solo music project, incorporating sax reeds, violin strings and bows, pot lids, and everyday household items into his drum kit. In February 2006 he released his first solo album, The Young Cricketer (Hot Cars Warp Records), and toured extensively throughout Europe, USA, and Japan.  Corsano performed on Björk’s Volta world tour in 2007 and 2008.  In 2009, he returned focus to his own projects, most notably a duo with Michael Flower, Rangda (with Sir Richard Bishop and Ben Chasny) and solo work, now revamped to include synthesizers and contact microphones in addition to his drum set and home-made acoustic instruments.  He has also worked with, among others: John Edwards (Clean Feed), Jim O’Rourke (Drag City), Akira Sakata (Family Vineyard), Paul Dunmall (ESP-Disk), Nels Cline (Strange Attractors), Jessica Rylan (Load Records), Jandek (Corwood), Sunburned Hand Of Man (Manhand), MV&EE (Eclipse/Time-Lag), Vampire Belt (Open Mouth), Joe McPhee (Roaratorio), and Wally Shoup (Leo/Columbia Japan).cor-sano.com RICHARD RAMIREZ is an American noise music artist from Texas, recording and performing both as a solo artist and as part of several groups and Houston Noise Bands, including Black Leather Jesus, Priest in Shit, An Innocent Young Throat-Cutter, Oasis of Fear, Last Rape and the “static noise” solo project Werewolf Jerusalem. Ramirez’s work is characterized by long, slowly changing or static tracks of heavily distorted low-to mid-range noise, with a gradual move over the last several years towards more drone-influenced sounds.
