San Francisco’s Recombinant Media Labs, run by Ashodel boss Naut Humon, is unleashing its newest (and possibly rarest) set of live engagements to date. The Language, Sound, and Cinema Series will draw international talent to demonstrate real-time sound and art installations in Recombinant’s state-of-the-art facility.

The first installment of the series will see Norway-based artist Biosphere (a.k.a. Geir Jenssen) making his first West Coast appearance. While the Norseman is also taking this ambient showcase to Seattle’s Decibel Festival, show attendees at the Bay Area performance will have a rare chance to see him exhibit the work he does with acclaimed visual artist Egbert Mittelstädt (known for his psychedelic patterned “Slit-Scan” method). Taking place Saturday, September 15, this all-encompassing program is not to be missed.

Following Biosphere’s performance, Einstürzende Neubauten contributor Blixa Bargeld is making a highly anticipated S.F. appearance. Performing alongside artist Alva Noto, Bargeld will give experimental fans a taste of his new solo work, which should also hint at Neubauten’s forthcoming Alles Wieder Offen (Potomak) release.
