INVERSION presents (re)connect by electric.kitchen - (re)connect is an evening of experimental electronic music and visuals exploring reconnecting after two years of isolation for performing artists. The whole evening connects its parts into a journey, newly traveled every night.
electric.kitchen is Mark Lenctzner and Bill Waitroski with WabiSabi and Woke-Ass Messiah
Mark Lentczner works with electronic sonic elements - analog synthesizers, sampled sounds, drum boxes, handmade electronics, effects boxes - using them in ways that skirts the line between recognizable musical forms, and journeys in sonic space. The music is all conceived for live performance, using many different ways to interact with electronics, building on the energy of live creation with an audience.

Bill Waitroski uses modular video synthesis and video feedback to create abstract visual interpretations of the hidden energy fields that surround us. The live performed visuals expose a secret, subtle, sometimes unruly world, lying just outside our normal field of perception.
WabiSabi (DB Pawlan) performs ambient soundscapes and textures featuring percussive and melodic elements. Much of his work incorporates Asian-influenced inspiration, manifesting itself in the dichotomy of the Japanese notions of wabi and sabi.

Woke-Ass Messiah (Karl Benedek) lives in Eugene, Oregon. He makes music using a modular synth and a small family of semi-modular desktop synths. His focus is on building playable patches for live performance. His influences include kosmische drones, drifting vaporscapes, industrial squelch, chaos, and psychedelia.
