ST.16 featuring Appetite NYC/Ascetic HouseNS + more


Surface Tension is proud to present the SF debut of two essential projects from the NYC hardware techno underground with support from a rising local artist.

APPETITE (NYC-Ascetic House) – LIVE – Ciarra Black and Jane Chardiet are Appetite, a noise/industrial/electronic duo based in Brooklyn, NY. Their provocative summer 2015 release on Ascetic House featured some of their most dance floor focused material while also maintaining a deep experimental edge.

CIENFUEGOS (NYC – Unknown Precept, Primitive Languages) – LIVE – ” To listen to Cienfuegos is to listen to centuries of history: Context is king here, and for Alex Suárez, the brain and the heart behind Cienfuegos, thereis no way to separate the social from the musical. There is the Santería chant of his Miami-Cuban neighborhood, the industrial and noise of his DIY shows, the techno of his nightclubs, and the rattle of the dump trucks driving by. There is the music of his parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. And there is him, which is, of course, all of that.” – Noisey

THE CREATRIX (SF – No-Tech) – LIVE – A solo project by Fanciulla, one half of the experimental electronic duo Felidae, the Creatrix combines elements of modern techno, industrial and drone to weave a far-reaching, multidimensional sonic and literary narrative. Her first release is coming up later this year on the NYC based No-Tech label.

With DJ sets from the Surface Tension residents:
Justin Anastasi, Nihar Bhatt, Chris Zaldua and Jason Polastri
