Soon after our artistic ally, the multi-dimensional Phil Ogison Aegidiussen, passed away last fall, it was decided to do a musical tribute where some of Phil's longtime collaborators could come together and jam with him one more time through the aid of our recordings with Phil. Geographically distant friends like Lorne David Thomson and Anne Sulikowski sent in recordings from as far way as Thailand which will be featured throughout the night interspersed with poems from Philip Cairns + Norman Allan + Kai Thomas. dreamSTATE, Wally Jericho, Sylken and Jeff Howard will perform two sets utilizing samples, loops and recordings of Phil Ogison. There will also be a special subductionCurrent piece to open the second set. Phil was long a part of the PiNG family and graced our stage many times with his fluid guitar-based sonic journeys. During his PiNG days, Phil performed solo as The Devil in the Design, but was also an integral part of subductionCurrent (with his wife Catherine Taomesre Tammaro), Psychosomatic Climax Machine and Amoeba Starfish. Phil, you will always be with us and remain an inspiration. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - COMiNG SOON: THE PiNG: .. Wednesday June 12th 2019 .
