GIVE A HOOT
Ladies and gentlemen will be floating in space when Barn Owl, the droning San Francisco duo of Evan Caminiti and Jon Porras, swoop into town tonight. Since meeting in college in 2006, the guitarists have mixed the hypnotic side of Terry
Riley and La Monte Young with terrifying black metal timbres, doom-laden Takoma acoustic properties, something Porras has described as “the powerful feeling of fog creeping along the horizon,” and other
aural manifestations of dark matters. Glacial ghost rhythms underpin Barn Owl’s
brilliant new V (Thrill Jockey), which concludes with “The Opulent Decline,” a half-hour improvisation whittled down to 17 thickly layered minutes of syrupy wonderment. The synthetic strata of Jimy
SeiTang’s Stygian Stride project will set
the stage for Barn Owl’s slo-mo space race.
