Provocative multi-media duo Growing creates a quadraphonic installation with strategically placed amplifiers and visual projections. Otis Hart described the nature of the band’s music in Dusted: “Reach for an initial word, a label – say Doom Metal – then watch, as the demonic guitars slowly morph into demonstrative bliss. Drone may come a bit closer to the truth, but only slightly, as silence plays an equally significant role in the proceedings. Alas, Growing’s anomalous sounds dwell in perpetual nigh-fidelity, permeating the gaps between equalizer settings with evasive intent, frustrating any attempt at optimization, and therefore, classification.” With Tom Carter (Charalambides), Noel Von Harmonson (solo analogue assault from Comets on Fire’s echoplex destroyer), and Patrick Mullins.
