Porest presents...


Mark Gergis last visited soundcrack around 9 years ago and created one of my favorite hours of nonlinear performative noise-radio. If you found your way to reading this, you can figure out where to download that. After growing up and spending much of his adult/creative life in the Bay Area, Mark left the U.S. during the "Obama regime", spent several years in Vietnam and Malaysia, and is currently a nomadic nowhere/nobody and finds himself living in the UK. During a recent visit back home in the Bay, I was able to convince Mark to make a quick trip to the studio for a session.

Ava Mendoza and bran(...)pos crack open 2018 with ye olde jam & chat. Since moving away from the Bay Area to NYC around 5 years ago, Ava has been busier than ever. She brings us some soon-to-be released new Unnatural Ways material to gronk over. (Their new stuff reminds me of really great late 80s SST jazzy prog-punk with a lyrical obsession on aliens (feeling alien?)). We go into full duophony guitar/synth/vox mode with a couple of super-fun noise improvs. (Every time I play duo noise with Ava, I find myself leaning towards rhythms, I think largely because I like to hear how many fucking notes she can cram in between pulses.) Somewhere in the middle we share a pretentious (but tasty) dry white wine while chatting about what she's been up to and what's been up my butt.A great catch-up with an amazing pal and musical partner.
