Circuit des Yeux, Jung Bouquet, Quiet Evenings, Future Ape Tapes, Barry Stone

Enjoy a free evening of art and music Wednesday, when some noteworthy sound artists perform in Gallery 101 in UGA’s Lamar Dodd building. Chicago-based songwriter Haley Fohr crafts immediate, emotionally rich folk music laden with dense atmospherics and foreboding beauty. Los Angeles composer Jung Bouquet blends pop songcraft with ambient soundscapes to create seismic but satisfying tunes. Austin, TX multimedia artist Barry Stone will perform a set of noise-damaged drone, accompanied by his mind-melding visuals. The two locals on the bill—Winterville ambient duo Quiet Evenings and Athens art-beat troupe Future Ape Tapes—are both celebrating the release of new cassettes, and psychedelic projection crew Eye Gate will provide eye candy for the evening.
