Event created and organized by Lorenz Peter and W.A.Davison, built around Lorenz's stash of found Super-8 travelogues and home-movies from c.1971.

Lorenz didn't include himself on the bill but I'm guessing/hoping he will probably join in on the analog synth sounds as well. Also, I'm listed as "William Davison" but I consider this a Panic Engines appearance.

Again, please note this is an EARLY SHOW!! The event WILL start at 6pm!

Should be a great night! Hope to see you there!

La Bande Détournée

Woohoo! Just received a grant from the Ontario Arts Council to work on the fourth issue of my appropriated comics project "La Bande Détournée"! Thanks to Mark Laliberte and Carousel magazine who are the recommenders for the grant!

Panic Engines Bandcamp

The first cassette release by my analog synth noise project Panic Engines "A Box On Angles, Thin Arms Extended Irons" (Disembraining Songs, 2013) is now available on Bandcamp. You can listen for free at any time from the Bandcamp page, or the release is available for download for the very reasonable and affordable price of $5 Canadian (funds received from download sales will help support my addiction to gummy worms...and may also be put towards the release of more Panic Engines and other super-cool stuff!).

And, need I remind you that "A Box On Angles, Thin Arms Extended Irons" was named one of the top 5 drone albums of 2014 by BlogTO!

Here it is!

More to come very soon!
