Foggy Notions and !kaboogie are teaming up to present the Dublin debut of MAD EP for this year's DEAF. Canadian Matthew Pears has worked variously as a cellist, radio producer, found sound artist and designer. A founding member of the Manhattan Gimp Project, one half of the hip-hop duo Mad/EQ and resident sound designer for the Psychasthenia Society, his idiosyncratic sound draws inspiration equally from hiphop, jungle, classical and glitch. With his recent releases on Ad Noiseam turning heads, he also has an EP forthcoming on Belfast's Acroplane net label. Taking place at Dublin's Andrew's Lane Theatre on October 23rd, support on the night will come from Ebola and Ed Devane. Continuing to sidestep genres, Ebola's highly regarded live sets have demonstrated his unconventional take on breakcore, gabber, noise, and most recently dubstep, with his Mutant Dubstep Volume 1. Following the acclaim for his 2006 release The Squirm EP on UK label Touchin' Bass, !kaboogie favourite Ed Devane has been busy, with future releases planned for !kaboogie and Mantrap Recordings, as well as gigs with his four piece improv group The John Mary Trilogy in which Ed plays a self-made electronic steel guitar. Doors open at 11pm and admission is €10.
