Cult House Resurrection: Midwaste, Mad Max Elliott, 10564, DJ Lauden

  • Art In 1444 East Washington Avenue Madison, WI, 53703 United States (map)

The Madison/Milwaukee duo Midwaste uses an ever-evolving configuration of samples, guitars, synths, and delay pedals to create planetarium-worthy experimental music. Epiphany Compton uses cassette samples of dialogue and ambient sound to create a sense of narrative and pacing, while Spencer Bible creates dense, shimmering layers of swelling guitar and synth. Midwaste's live performances help to demonstrate that even music with a rather abstract approach can create a powerful emotional connection. The duo put out two releases in 2016, the EP As Relayed and a limited CD called Eleanora/Exit. They play here as part of a re-launch event for Cult House, an event series that Madison-based musician and DJ Dan Woodman (whose projects include Lens and Drunjus) launched in his home some years ago and has recently branched out into booking other shows and even food-based events. Also on the bill are psychobilly howler Mad Max Elliott and noise artist 10564. —Scott Gordon
