Wiggwaum (with film by Doug Katelus)
Doug Katelus & Randylee Sutherland, with newest member Matt Hartman, lead you toward the brain center, nervous center, soul center, through the ears. Wiggwaum is a spell of reeds, vox, percussion and A100 Hammond organ; amped up, melted, cracked up, splitting out sounds. “Sounds like death via sasquatch.”
Randylee Sutherland, percussion
Doug Katelus, Hammond Organ
Matt Hartman, Electric Saxophone

Aram Shelton: alto sax
Mike Forbes: tenor sax
Andrew Scott Young: bass
Jacob Felix Heule: drums
21st century energy music featuring 2/3rds of Chicago’s Tiger Hatchery joined by Bay Area stalwarts.

Headboggle (with video by Mike D)
A self described “culmination of diverging unsound musical and accidental pursuits…” He studied Classical and Ragtime piano under noted Ragtime Revivalist Dr. Brian Dykstra. Influences may/not include Bartok, Scott Joplin, and Morton Subotnick, Eno’s Oblique Strategies, Andy Kaufman, and John Cage. A typical performance might include live analog synthesizer improvisation over a prepared backing. Backing sounds are usually multritracked soundscapes featuring unique field recordings and other synthetic treatments.
