Live set at Good Room, May 5

very excited to try out some new things on this amazing lineup next friday.  check it out:




Good Room
Demdike Stare [Modern Love] - Live
Regis [ Downwards Records] - DJ set
Abby Echiverri - Live
Maria Chavez - DJ set

Covert Joy - DJ set

Quo Vadis is proud to welcome back beloved Manchester two-piece Demdike Stare to Brooklyn on May 5th with Downwards Records label boss Regis. Joining them will be Brooklyn's Abby Echiverri and Maria Chavez. QV residents Covert Joy will take over the Bad Room from open to close. 

Demdike Stare is a collaboration between Sean Canty and Miles Whittaker, two childhood friends from the North of England with voracious appetites for record collecting. After years spent mining vinyl bins for source material, the pair started collaborating in earnest back in 2008, re-appropriating sounds they had spent a lifetime cataloguing into weird and immersive music of their own. The project went on to produce a string of albums that were largely guided by the occult and the strange symbolism their surroundings in Pendle provided, but as a number of intriguing DDS mixtapes released over the last couple of years indicated, the project was starting to head in unexpected directions.The duo recently released Wonderland, the highly awaited LP that follows their Testpressing series and 2012 album Elemental. Their latest effort combines industrial, ambient, and techno with striking jungle rhythms. 

~~~ REGIS ~~~
Karl O'Connor is most certainly Regis and it is also highly probable that he propagates other pseudonyms. This has only added to the greater mythology surrounding the influential Downwards label that he has run with fellow art terrorist Peter Sutton (Female) since 1993. Unconventional and single-minded to say the least (what label can boast a back catalogue free of the industry standard cash cow remix) by decentralising the focus on the DJ/producer personality, he remains one of the more highly regarded creative forces within the British techno/electronic scene. Degenerate art indeed.

Abby Echiverri is an NYC electronic and visual artist. Her music is influenced by her experience working with audio equipment, classical training, and a love of composing on unfamiliar or obsolete machinery.

Born in Lima, Peru and based in New York City, Maria Chávez is best known as an abstract turntablist and sound artist. Accidents, coincidence and failures are themes that unite her sound sculptures, installations and other works with her improvised solo turntable performances.

Abby on DIY Recording Equipment Podcast

I recently was asked some questions about analog synthesizers.  Listen here: https://www.diyrecordingequipment.com/blogs/podcast/analog-synth-diy-with-abby-echiverri


From the website:

Analog Synth DIY with Abby Echiverri

I've often fantasized about building a huge analog synth. But besides the obstacles of cost and not having a spare room in my house for it, I've always found the DIY synth world to be a bit intimidating.
In this podcast, synth wizard Abby Echiverri walks me through the basics, such as:
Is it feasible to build your own synth?
How much should I budget?
What are the basic modules I need to build?
Abby is a composer, DJ, DIYer, and audio gear designer. I caught up with her when she was on the road as the synth/keyboard tech for Soulwax.

We converge this New Year’s Eve to listen deeply, meditate on what was, and to what comes next. Offering an alternative to thumping parties, we have space for reflection in an immersive and comfortable environment. Curious spacious sounds put this year to bed and harmonic resonances welcome in the new year. Light eats will be served as well as an assortment of beverages. Pass through or stay the entire time.
