Not Unsound Presents: Bryce Eiman And Neil Feather says
They, Who Sound is taking a holiday break, but Not Unsound, a wholly-owned subsideary of the Axis Mundi label is taking up the slack for Monday, December 28 with perfromances by two experimental sound artists:

Bryce Eiman (Bynam, North Carolina) is an accomplished sound artist who we at Axis Mundi have had the priviledge to share the stage with several times. Check out samples of his work here:

Sound Mechanic Neil Feather has been creating radical and unusual musical instruments since 1970 and is increasingly known outside of Baltimore as one of the most original musical thinkers of his day. His instruments each embody uniquely clever acoustic and engineering principles, and are visually arresting. The music he plays on the instruments is equally original, embodying new principles and resulting in a nearly alien idiom of music.

When he was a young teen in western Pennsylvania, Feather discovered the music of John Cage, Harry Partch and Captain Beefheart. He immediately began to invent new musical instruments. Feather pursued a BFA and MFA from Penn State University and the University of Montana, respectively. His concentration in school was ceramics but the fascination for sound and music lead the work to other materials and contexts although the utilitarian ethos of ceramics remained intact.

Neil Feather has been involved in Baltimore’s fertile and eccentric culture since moving there in 1985. He was a founding member of the Red Room Collective and the High Zero Foundation, a group committed to the presentation of experimental and improvised music. He has a long history of collaborative projects and solo concerts.
Some of his major music projects are The Official Project, Thus, Aero train, Elephantitans and Mugwump. These groups all had an emphasis on Feather’s instruments and compositions.

Feather’s work has always been fully rooted in art and music together in concept, execution and performance. His deep involvement with Baltimore’s experimental music community compliments his wide international acclaim. He won the 2014 Sondheim Art Prize and the 2014 Trawick Art Prize. He was included in a major exhibition “Art or Sound” in the 2014 Venice Biennale.
