Sunday Afternoon Groove Session w/ Arthur Loves Plastic / L’Avenir / Analog Tara / Juana
Sunday, March 26, 2017

Arthur Loves Plastic sounds like the hour before the Singularity; dominant machines clicking and humming in rhythm and harmony with a touch of subversive humanity. Arthur Loves Plastic is the melody of neurotransmissions firing into random access memory. Arthur Loves Plastic is for people who require a machine to buffer their contact with others.

L'Avenir (instrumental set). L'Avenir is the cold synth side project of veteran electronic musician and sound artist Jason Sloan. Known throughout the space and ambient music scenes for his contemplative electronic soundscape work for close to two decades; Sloan founded L’Avenir as a side project in 2012 to explore his long time love of synt-op and minimal wave music created purely from analog and vintage equipment.
