Gallery 1412 is proud to welcome, from the Bay Area, Lavender and Marc Kate, along with Seattle’s own Rainbow Wolves. Friday, March 31, 8:00pm. $8 (tickets available)
Originally trained as a filmmaker and visual artist, San Francisco based producer and composer Marc Kate applies cinematic and conceptual approaches to music and audio production.
As a response to the tech culture assault on San Francisco (and the world), Kate takes up the tools of the trade — computers and synthesis — and slyly counter-attacks, imbuing humanity precisely where humanity is being evacuated. He creates a counterpoint to tech’s speed and greed — slow, immersive, materialist, drifting.
“Cosmic ambient. Elements of dub, drone, modular pulsations and a cinematic vibe that suggests a narrative arc through the tape. Beautifully done!” (aQuarius recOrds)
“Rainbow Wolves (Randall Skrasek) has drummed and played keyboards in local psych-rock groups like Hypatia Lake, This Blinding Light, and Soft Hills… Rainbow Wolves is Skrasek’s outlet to indulge in his wildest keyboard fantasias… his methodical chord progressions and eerie timbres building exquisite tension and a sense of alien terrain.” (Dave Segal, The Stranger)
