Organized by Curator-in-Residence, Mike Dadonna, this show is the release party for the compilation he helped put together, Rogue Pulse/Gravity Collapse.
Rogue Pulse / Gravity Collapse is a limited edition 10 CD box set, produced by RATSKIN RECORDS in direct response to the rapidly worsening, violent, political and philosophical conditions in our current state. All proceeds from both physical and digital sales will be split between BLACK LIVES MATTER national chapter Bail Fund, THE OAKLAND IMMEDIATE FIRE RELIEF FUND, and ST. JAMES INFIRMARY in San Francisco, CA.
The dense, physical housing of Rogue Pulse / Gravity Collapse opens to reveal twelve hours of esoteric sound from international producers, sound artists, bands, and activists working in every idiom from noise, electro, trap, experimental electronics, and industrial to esoteric metal, synthwave, musique concrète, field recordings, indigenous synthpunk, and as yet unnamed electronic styles. Some of the more well-known artists featured on this ambitious compilation are: Xiu Xiu, DJ Spooky, Idris Ackamoor, Clipping, and Wolf Eyes. There is also significant representation from musicians lost in the Ghost Ship fire last year.
Have you ever thought to yourself, “Gee, I wish I could just buy one HUGE, amazing, catch-all album of previously unreleased music by my favorite artists that I can happily listen to for the rest of my life!”
