DEEP LISTENING: STRATEGY, ETHERNET, GULLS, DJ INVISIBLE ZIGGURAT
(Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison) Working the soul out of a drum machine is no problem for Strategy, AKA Paul Dickow, who indulges us with ever-evolving forms of electronica—most recently delving into a futurized pop with vintage flair. A multi-instrumentalist and veteran producer, Dickow has continued to explore many different styles including ambient, experimental, and straight-up dance music with stellar results. Expect a live performance filled with any combination of drum machines, noisemakers, and synthesizers synced up to lay the groundwork for some impressive improvisation. The night's festivities are presented in part by forward-thinking arts and culture publication Redefine magazine and the experimental Boomarm Records. They have put together an exotic blend of ambient artistry sure to send you into an otherworldly orbit. CHRISTINA BROUSSARD
