Closet of Records hosts a series of events at Bos Bar presenting local and less local DIY labels with a roster ranging from audio releases to printed matter and beyond. On Thursday February 16th Dropa Disc will guide you into their hard to pin down sound world by way of a dj set and Tim Barnes & Jeph Jerman will draw you further into their challenging sonic explorations.
Tim Barnes’s resume as a percussionist, engineer, and curator is studded with all-star collaborators including Tony Conrad, Sonic Youth, Body/Head, Ken Vandermark, Royal Trux, and Tower Recordings. Jeph Jerman is a veteran of the creative music scenes in Denver and Seattle, and in more recent years has been thoroughly investigating the sonic possibilities of the desert Southwest where he lives and works. With creative percussive and electronic improvisation, field recordings ranging from the call of a stranded cricket to the roar of a distant airport and a surprising array of objects Barnes and Jerman have a unique sound experience on offer.
Dropa Disc is an extension of the Sound in Motion and Oorstof canon issuing releases of exceptional recordings by artists appearing in the series. With the first two vinyl releases Saint Francis Duo (O’Malley & Noble): los bordes de las respuestas and Kris Vanderstraeten: Trommels ! and the book Oorstof: Food for thought the Dropa Disc label was launched in August 2016. Two new releases Evan Parker, John Edwards, Steve Noble trio (cd) and Ballister: Low Level Stink (lp) are in preparation.
Dropa Disc releases can be purchased on the dedicated Dropa Disc page.
