One of the coolest events to go down here in Portland of late has been Jeph Nor’s Volt Divers series. Happening on a monthly basis as Lovecraft Bar, the performances highlight the many artists here that utilize hardware synths. A gaggle of them stop by the dark confines of this venue, perform a quick improvised set and get out of the way. The results vary in quality, to be sure, but they often provide real inspiration.
The VD crew has their next event scheduled for January 9th @ 7pm and they welcome in Dweomer, Ras Mix, S.H.E., Joy Through Noise, and this duo of Pailo and Jeph Nor. Let their glitchy and delightful performance from last month’s event serve as your guide.
