The Sound of Sounds

In the world of American underground experimental sound/noise, Aaron Dilloway and Jason Lescalleet rule. Dilloway, who has been releasing and recording music since the age of 16, is a former guitarist and tape manipulator for the experimental band Wolf Eyes. Lescalleet's aural universe, a mesmerizing sonic domain utilizing post-EAI, tape music and musique concrète, has been described as "a space between noise, contemporary composition and minimal electronics," in which old-fashioned experimental equipment such as reel-to-reel tape decks and damaged tape unearth the textural wonders of low-fidelity analog sounds and obsolete tech murmurings. Both artists have won national acclaim: Dilloway's Modern Jester was named one of the Top 10 Outer Sound Albums of 2012 by NPR and Lescalleet's cheeky, brilliant Songs About Nothing won over Pitchfork, NPR and The New York Times. This weekend, SASSAS presents these two fearless musical rebels at sound. at 356 Mission, along with opener John Wiese, founding member of the concrète grindcore band Sissy Spacek. 356 S.
