Tonight I am honored to be performing during the opening night of Execute Rogue Citizen. I have a lot of time to fill during the opening, so as well as performing the latest Ostraka material, I’ll be playing the newly mastered yet unreleased Ostracon (John Keston and Graham O’Brien) album, Unauthorized Modifications, and a recent bootleg of DGK from Try This at the Slam Factory. The City Pages writes,
“Execute Rogue Citizen” will be on display at Gallery 13 until April 1. The opening reception, Incarceration, will be this Friday night and features music by Ostraka starting at 7:30 p.m.
The closing in two weeks, Reprieve, will feature the music of Seawhores. All the art that has gone unsold during the show’s run will literally be executed. By doing this, Rogue Citizen hopes to acknowledge the way the system benefits only those who can afford it.
Let’s hope there will be no art leftover on execution night. Created by science-fiction nerds who love to paint the abnormal, Rogue Citizen’s work is much too nifty to get tossed, even if it is to make a valid point on our current social system.
Here’s an excerpt from a track a produced today that I’ll be performing in my Ostraka set tonight. All the sounds in this piece were made with the Roland Super Jupiter MKS-80 apart from the drums.
