Anthony & Violet
Duo for guitar and mayhem.
Legend of Montgomery Country electronic music freak scene since the 1970s. He'll probably rattle your intestines with his theremin.
Myo is the solo project of Cory O'Brien (b. 1980); self taught hacker, computer musician and electro-acoustic improviser. Contact mics on polycarbonate sheets and feedback networks programmed in Pd and Max/MSP are the preferred tools. His music has been described by Vital Weekly as "louder, dirtier, gritty and angular, but still with ingredients of microsound".
