Performers/composers Luciano Chessa (Saw, Megaphone, Dan Bau) and Tyrel Williams (Turntables) pick their favorite Futurist and Techno groceries and cook up an evening of gourmet noise.
Tyrel Williams has been a mainstay of Chicago’s underground House and Techno scene for years. He began mixing records in 1999. Soon later he landed a job at Gramaphone Records where he spent many years building his collection of music. He spent 2008-2011 building his Acid Test residency at Smart Bar, which was an all vinyl House / Techno party. Tyrel has recently moved to San Francisco where he is a resident DJ for Housepitality. He has also started a project with Bryan Bai-ee called Secret Studio with releases on their own label called SS Records.
Luciano Chessa is a composer, conductor, performance artist, pianist, and musical saw/Vietnamese dan bau soloist.
