Transistor Present: Garden House Records Showcase
Friday June 12, 8:00PM: experimental electronica/dance from Marsden Giolas and DeeMOn, @ Transistor
This event is Free & B.Y.O.B.
DeeMOn is Chicago native Chris Hess, a musician and owner of the label Garden House Records. He has played in indie rock bands such as Souljunky, Bellsize, and Soul Explosion Orchestra. This November, he will release his first recording for Garden House Records. DeeMOn formulates a uniquely intriguing sound all his own by utilizing homemade, vintage and modern instruments. While his music is rooted in traditional house and techno, it has an almost organic quality to it that is rarely found in electronic music today.
Marsden Giolas is a musician, producer, artist and DJ who currently works and resides in Chicago. He recently graduated from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago where he concentrated on audio/music production as well as new media/video art design and development.He is currently producing experimental electronic dance music that has a tendency to fall within multiple genres. This blurring of boundaries and genres is by far one of his output’s greatest strengths.
Before joining forces with the Garden House label, Marsden released two extended players, two singles and one long player on Bandcamp as well as publicly available demo tracks on Soundcloud. He deftly incorporates the styles of intelligent dance music (IDM), glitch, ambient, down tempo, break beat, dub step and drum and bass into his music.
For this Transistor performance, Marsden will be performing his solo material from his latest releases.
