Blk w/Bear

NTS default image

Blk w/Bear

Blk w/Bear has been played on NTS shows including Love Drain, with Broken Ridge first played on 14 September 2016.

BLK w/ BEAR [Washington DC-based queer artist JS ADAMS] creates both temporal turntable installations and laptop compositions utilizing forced looping technique of altered vinyl recordings along with 'dead media' recording sources such as Mutoscope 'Voice-o-Graph' and Wilcox Gay 'Recordio' discs. His audio artworks also include manipulated voice synthesis and deconstructive turntablism.

BLK w/ BEAR has since grown to become a full-band effort of Adams [loops + prepared vinyl], Doug Poplin [cello + effects] and PD Sexton [bass + effects].

Live performances and studio recordings incorporate additional instrumentation…
