EYE, of Boredoms fame, is a fairly accomplished artist, having put on a number of gallery exhibitions and doing cover art for Beck. His current show, running through December 10th, consists of talismanic mantles of fabric tacked to gallery walls alongside appropriated record albums with cover art redone by his own hand. A particularly abused copy of Eno's Music for Airports brought smiles to a few faces. As intimated yesterday, not only did EYE perform at the opening, but he was joined by Hisham Bharoocha for their GATAX project. Bharoocha handled drum and sequencer duties, while EYE broke out the motion sensitive light orbs again, piped through a laptop that looked like it was running Max/MSP.
GATAX created some feverishly hypnotic sounds, the crowd's reverie broken only by EYE's shaman walking and occasional grunting. Let's hope some studio time for GATAX is in the cards.
No more EYE this week, so have a listen to this:
Grizzly Bear - Campfire (Hisham Bharoocha & Rusty Santos Remix)
**Buy it from Kanine Records**
Been meaning to write up Mr. Santos for a while now. Until then, have a look here.
