Simon Wickham-Smith: drone on, star-gazing guru.

As an addendum to Josh Feit’s earlier post about tonight’s Gallery 1412 show, I’d like to say a little about Simon Wickham-Smith. This British multi-instrumentalist is a respected astrologer and a master of acutely modulated drones that waver in the sublime zone between Phill Niblock and Pauline Oliveros’ work. He also maintains a fondness for deconstructing various religious musics, which he does with brilliance on Extreme Bukake. Wickham-Smith’s music will make you see stars—and later he may even read yours, if you ask nicely. Here’s hoping he brings his didgeridoo, as well.
