Blursome, Hanz, Edy Bower

When: Fri., July 25, 9 p.m. 2014

The prospect of electronic music in an art gallery might conjure images of burly dudes hovering over laptops and tabletop mixers, easing out slow drones or cacophonous cut-ups. That can be great, but that's not this. Instead, local production and booking company Maison has recruited three upstart producers for this suggestive and intriguing evening. Despite the rugged outerwear his name might recall, Raleigh's Edy Bower leans close to techno, his shallow and chirping beats undergirding florid synths and undulating bass. The tempos downshift after his set, as Durham beatmaker Hanz delivers pleasantly dour, dimly lit pieces that suspend samples in a haze of static and menacing drums. And then there's Blursome, the ambitious Raleigh programmer who spins a web of disembodied samples and melodic fragments across intuitive sequences of bulbous beats. It's like a nightmare dreamt in the back of a crowded nightclub. —Grayson Haver Currin
