Complementing the Center Space exhibition 'Losing Faith', the Visual Arts Center re-examined the typical rock music experience. Two bands comprised of musicians and visual artists conduct an electrical investigation into the creative unknown.
Air Jordan (Hair Gorgon, Heir Gordon) is a one-man, two-piece rock and bowl outfit that rips and rolls through an endless visual sound-scape of strange, yet familiar brain terrain. Simultaneously hard and soft, this quilted thicker picker upper constantly explores complex issues of shadow and light, comedy and dramedy, booty and the sub-slime, vote or don’t, why vegan?, and the like.
Magic Jewels is a two-piece guitar and drums psychedelic punk rock kick flip dive into the alter verse. The sound of the music is an over-the-top blast funneled into a toxic spirit animal that surfs the cosmic sound waves of the cerebral vortex. The spells that Magic Jewels conjure up explode like grenade-topped pizzas sending laser claws straight to your heart, forever altering its beat to pulse in perfect harmony with their music!
