Chris Kissel w/guest Sean Smith (LFZ, Stimulus Progression) – Contact Wave
Hosted by Los Angeles DJ and journalist Chris Kissel, Contact Wave enthusiastically celebrates the best experimental, avant garde, psychedelic, and off-the-grid music crafted in L.A. and beyond.
This week’s guest is Los Angeles-based musician and label owner Sean Smith.
In LFZ, Smith manipulates guitar and synthesizers with a vast array of analog and digital devices. The music is emotionally driven and rides the line between composition and improvisation. There is a deep experimentalism captured in the music of LFZ -all executed by tangible means. LFZ is exploratory of sights, sounds and the phenomenological. Since 2015, LFZ has released a self titled album, a collection of meditative synthesizer improvisations, “Pointless Prism,” and three volumes in the “Sketches of Jupiter” series.
STIMULUS PROGRESSION specializes in re-issues of obscure private press and rare LP’s, original new-old-stock of select artists, and sporadic new releases. All releases are made available on tangible and preferred analog formats with an emphasis on cassettes. The label’s output is centered on a balance of intellectualism and emotional creativity. Every artist’s work embraces the time in which it was created, yet embodies a timelessness in the progress of experimentalism.
2:00pm – 4:00pm
Zebulon FMR – Radio Zebulon
A music venue is usually all about reception, providing a physical place where audiences can come to receive musical transmissions from around the world. On this show, we’ll flip the switch and broadcast the sounds of Zebulon back to the world. We’ll be sharing recordings gathered over the ten years of our original incarnation in Brooklyn, alongside recent releases from musical friends and favorite works by inspirational artists – to be followed in the near future by weekly broadcasts from Zebulon’s new Los Angeles location.
Zebulon, a new center for artistic and cultural exchange, will be opening soon in Elysian Valley. Starting in early 2017, we hope you will join us at 2478 Fletcher Drive for community, food, drinks, music, film, theater and dancing. Until then, please listen in every Sunday to hear some of what’s in store…
