High-Tech meets No-Tech in imaginary places. The delicacy and uniqueness of their sounds creates  a  sonic postcard from a neighboring galaxy,  strange but familiar. Deconstructed melodies  sparkle through  ever-changing  electronic fields, creating lively and unexpected music.

Triple Echo

Anna Homler, Rich West, Chris Cundy
This is when it starts to get interesting. While all three of these new-thing / artmusik / sonar-poetics stars have shared bills at various times over the years, the experimental sound trio of Cundy, Homler, West have never actually played together, and so they’ve decided to do just that. When these sympathetic souls combine their mad, mad skills, there’s no telling what’s going to happen, which of course can be an excellent thing. Anna Homler is a vocal, visual and performance artist who has been known to invent her own languages; she often plays her collection of antiques, toys and curios thru a variety of digital delays/FX, so perhaps she’ll do that again; drummer Rich West currently and for the foreseeable future does reign supreme in the Los Angeles improvised music scene; English sax and bass clarinet improviser Chris Cundy currently graces doom-soul band Cold Specks (who’re playing at the Getty on November 17 –– also highly recommended). Fri., Nov. 16, 7 p.m.; at The Last Bookstore, 453 S. Spring St., ground floor (entrance on 5th St.). Yes, it’s free, and there’s street and lot parking available
