Electronic glitch artist Mark Fell's work is challenging, to say the least, and tonight he comes to taste-making performance space YU to perform a live interpretation of his 2010 recording Multistability. The title itself refers to "a psychological effect in which one is unable to perceive a single, stable object within complex or ambiguous patterns in visual, auditory, or olfactory perception." Basically, this means that the crushed-out tones, arrhythmic pulses, wet splashes, and harsh digital pitches will be almost defiantly unmusical—you're going to feel unsettled and perhaps a little queasy. But sometimes having your brain circuits shuffled in the name of art is an interesting way to spend a weeknight, and Fell's performance also promises a trippy light show. Leave the psychedelics at home—this sort of stuff is intended to replicate them, not augment them. NED LANNAMANN
