APPETITE FOR DECONSTRUCTION is a limited series curated by experimental artist Mike Barber. Join us for an evening of improvised experimental music. Each evening is divided in two parts—guest artists will perform their sets which will be sampled and used as the raw materials for Barber’s closing set. The audience will first experience the original source performances unfold live, then an improvised deconstruction of them immediately after.
The first evening of the series will be Jakob Rehlinger, Autotectonic, and Mike Barber.
Jakob Rehlinger is a kosmische music composer and improviser living in Etobicoke, Ontario. As well as working under his own name, he has recorded using the monikers BABEL, Moonwood, Heavy Moon, King Pong Dub System and TRANZMIT.
Cayce Fischer is a queer artist based in Toronto, making experimental music under the moniker AUTOTECTONIC. A self-taught synthesist, Cayce makes music to process, heal, and to build intimacy and share space with others.
mike barber is an experimental composer/artist based in toronto, canada. for over 20 years he has been recording and performing both as a solo artist and as a collaborator in experimental and avant-garde formations in toronto, montréal, philadelphia, and new york city. he has also composed and performed musical scores to a number of independent documentaries and short films. recently, barber was a featured performer in the 2019 toronto new wave festival.
a self-described “sonic mad scientist”, barber specializes in using indeterminacy, chance operations, and improvisation with a mixed palette of electronic sources, organic instruments, and field recordings to create ambient soundscapes, minimalist drones, and other pieces that find categorization problematic.
