Monday March 13th at 7pm is the In Between Series at The Gallery at Avalon Island. Harsh Radish is the solo musical project of singer, songwriter, and experimental sound enthusiast Russell Parker. Channeling the energies of everything from lo-fi folk and ambient electronic music to noisy pop and DIY punk, his music thrives along boundaries. Both natural and artificial, harmonic and dissonant, actual and virtual; all of these dichotomies offer Harsh Radish a fertile liminal space to explore and extract sonic and lyrical meaning.
Russell will be exhibiting an interactive musical installation entitled Inductance Interface. Programmed using Pure Data, this instrument will allow participants to use the electromagnetic signals emanating from their own smart phones or other electronic devices as a unique music controller, revealing patterns and melodies buried within the device’s circuits.
