Formed in 1984, by Michael Weicker, Weep, O' Mine Eyes has been an evolutionary journey to present day. Weep, O' Mine Eyes was inspired by the German Expressionist Movement of the early 20th Century, by such artists as Oscar Kokoschka and by early industrial musicians such as Throbbing Gristle, Chris and Cosey, Kraftwerk, Thomas Leer and Robert Rental. Weep, O' Mine Eye's early musical experiments utilized analogue synthesizers, drum machines, eastern hand drums, as well as found objects such as metal canisters and power tools. In recent years, digital and analogue modeling synthesizers have been added to the studio as well as samplers and an Eigenharp. This augmentation, coupled with digital sequencing and mixing equipment has allowed for an elaborate mix of past and present electronic music technology. https://weepomineeyes.bandcamp.com Weep, O' Mine Eyes on Apple Music .. 10:00 . Whisper Room . Whisper Room is a trio featuring Aidan Baker (Nadja) on guitar/effects, Neil Wiernik (NAW) on bass/laptop and Jakob Thiesen (Students) on drums. Rich Baker will be guesting on drums in place of Jakob for this performance. Whisper Room explores the conjunction of electronic rhythms and textures and the pulsations and psychedelics of shoegaze and Krautrock. https://whisperroom.bandcamp.com https://www.facebook.com/whisperroommusic http://whisper-room.net - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - COMiNG SOON: DRONE:KLUB: .
