Join us April 1st, 8:30pm at Black Iris Gallery after First Fridays art walk, for an evening of experimental sounds and texture with Retribution Body and Gardner! MATTHEW AZEVEDO (aka RETRIBUTION BODY) is a musician, audio engineer, teacher, and acoustician currently based in Boston whose performance practice is centered on creating unique, immersive sound environments. His primary solo project Retribution Body uses analog electronics, high amplification, and a custom speaker array capable of reproducing subsonic energy to explore the mental and emotional states which arise in Zen meditation. His most recent album as Retribution Body, Aokigahara, was released by Type Records in 2015 and was included on many year-end “Best of” lists.
GARDENER is the solo electronic project from Dash Lewis, a Richmond based sound artist and musician. Using a modular synthesizer, various effects pedals, and his own voice, Lewis creates intricately layered, rhythmically complex slabs of psychedelia deeply influenced by Harmonia, Lichens, and Ariel Kalm.
