Sam Frigard of Athens-based experimental outfit I Come to Shanghai crafts shadowy modular synth compositions as Terminals. The project’s debut self-titled release, out last month on upstart local tape label VAALD, is bleak and meditative and frankly gorgeous. The tape sold out of its ultra-limited run in one day (!), but you can witness Frigard’s work in live form Monday in the Ciné lab, where he’ll be joined by three other noteworthy acts: L.A.-based sound sculptor Kevin Greenspon, who is well regarded in the underground tape-trading community for his cinematic drone workouts; Wisconsin-based avant-pop group Big Waves of Pretty; and secretive but invigorating local harsh-noise duo Ambulette.
