Pearl Harbor Day Experimental Showcase

When: Wed., Dec. 7, 9:30 p.m. 2016

A great deal of contemporary music alludes to 9/11, much of it seemingly intended to either cash in or examine our emotions about that day. On the seventy-fifth anniversary of the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor, one way to parse our current thoughts about it might be through oblique music. Tear-jerking post-rock and ballads are standard outlets for addressing tragedy, but what about more ambiguous forms—music capable of existing in multiple moods? Such are the acts featured in this weighty Wednesday-night lineup. Patrick Gallagher's mix of modular synths and prepared guitar is complex and fascinating, never explaining or revealing itself too easily. He shares the stage with Reflex Arc, plus Edy Bower and Joel Steephenson. There's also Midcentury Modular, the electronic side project of members of Raleigh's Less Western. —David Ford Smith
