Now that you definitely aren't going to Atlas Sound on Thursday, Charlie Ellis '13 writes in to save the night. "industrial doom," I can dig that. "drone metal," aight aight. "machines," cool. In all seriousness, this looks like it will be a really incredible show. If you have never been to a show at Music House (I'm looking at you, freshmen), this will be the time to do it. Its intimacy will certainly make this show unforgettable. Also, I hear Bakshi shreds--"More hateful than ever before." Hit the jump to read what Charlie sent us. " 'Author & Punisher is an industrial doom and drone metal, one man band utilizing primarily custom fabricated machines/controllers and speakers. He has performed and shown these machines in festivals and exhibitions in the United States and abroad extensively, releasing his third album, yet first sculpture/art based album entitled “Drone Machines” in 2010 on Heart and Crossbone Records of Tel-Aviv. The Drone Machines are custom made machines fabricated from raw materials and utilizing open source circuitry. The devices draw heavily on aspects of industrial automation, robotics and mechanical tools and devices, focusing on the eroticism of interaction with machine. The machines require significant force from the performer, aligning he or she with the plodding drone and doom influenced sounds that are created.' The show will take place in Music House providing an intimate space for epicness."
