OWLCAVE RECORDS presents † BL▲CK M▲SS † SUND▲Y
With Special Guests ∆AIMON & PRETEEN PORNSTAR
† DARKWAVE † INDUSTRIAL † WITCH HOUSE † SYNTH †
† BL▲CK M▲SS † is an avant-garde dance party bringing you the best in cvltstep, horrortech, brokenclash, grave wave, cold rave, and demonic disco.
Featuring guest performances by newbreed artists from the dark spectrum of music.
We invite you to enjoy a refreshing glass of absinthe and an evening of cold, dark, haunting and abrasive music.
▲▲▲▲▲▲▲▲▲ 1am † ∆AIMON ▲▲▲▲▲▲▲▲▲
San Diego//Tundra Dubs//Pale Noir//Phantasma Disques
A male/female duo from Southern California; ΔAIMON defy their sunny locale in exchange for beautiful, grim and sometimes harsh occult soundscapes; with compositions
built on anxiety and paranoia giving way to a heightened feverish sexuality and erotic ritualism.
Coming from an extremely wide set of influences, their music is its own unique blend of slow and menacing conjurations.
Generally connected with the ‘drag‘ and ‘witchhouse‘ genres, ΔAIMON uses unconventional sound-design and tension within often pop oriented song structures to instill unnerving sensations.
▲▲▲ 12a † PRETEEN PORNSTAR ▲▲▲
San Diego//Self Released
Newbreed//Witch House//Experimental Electronic
Preteen Pornstar is an art group that started in 2002 when a group of people who enjoyed analog synthesizers and synthesized analgesics felt the very human need to become a collective entity and choose a name.
Over the next 4 years the project solidified through live shows in South and North California into a core group of permanent members with more or less steady roles, and a cloud of 40 or so occasional collaborators. Preteen has performed at clubs, art galleries, hotels, and an orgy. Shows vary between 15 minutes with one performer, and 10 hours with over 50.
Since 2002, the project has put out 5 'normal' full length albums, as well as a scattering of other releases including remixes, s3m kits, found audio tapes, and an illustrated children's book.
The only consistent threads are that any Preteen work must feature at least one of the core members, and must be available for free online. All releases of the project are available on either direct download or through bit torrent.
While Preteen has generally left the themes of their work open to interpretation by others, we do want to make one point clear: absolutely none of it is done for shock value. The pieces that can be misinterpreted as such in reality only take something we view as normal or at least acceptable, remove its mitigating context, and show it back to us.
