Madison-based guitarist and electronic musician Andrew Fitzpatrick (All Tiny Creatures, Bon Iver, Cap Alan) has developed a vast realm of sonic manipulation and synthesis in his solo project Noxroy. From the glacially tuneful ambient guitar of 2012's Cotyledon Observatory to the more abstract and sparingly harsh modular-synth pieces of 2014's Anverloss and 2018's Protomontage, Noxroy demonstrates a formidable grasp of the textures and strange harmonics that electronic music can offer.
Fitzpatrick’s approach to making sense of this project live always shifts, though it invariably involves wrangling analog synths, software, and an electric guitar. At this show, Fitzpatrick will throw himself yet another curveball, performing new compositions as he screens a program of Canadian animated shorts from the 20th century. Communication is billing this as a "limited performance," so it's likely Fitzpatrick won't be repeating this particular live set anytime soon. Louise Bock (the wide-ranging solo project of Spires That In The Sunset rise vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Taralie Peterson) and Madison ambient trio Sleep Now Forever will open the show. —Scott Gordon
