Byron Westbrook - Voice Damage
Los Angeles-based artist, musician and remarkable human Byron Westbrook is a socially-minded architect of sound. With an ear for fractured texture and an eye for improbable pattern, his previous offerings have flowed through bastions of eccentric bliss Root Strata, Hands in the Dark and Umor Rex.
Voice Damage is presented by illuminators Psychic Troubles Tapes. Two long-form (20 minutes each) improvised compositions, paint-peeling meditation and sweet deterioration. A phenomenology of instrument playing, Voice Damage expresses with tenderness and rawness the unedited communion of human and apparatus.
