Aphotic Segment 012 - The Siege Vinyl Release Party
For the past several months, Aphotic Segment has enticed the Detroit musical landscape with both an aural and an ideologically-themed event that has touched upon a multitude of subjects that range from witches, deep sea diving, mythological wonderments, and political satire…. just to name a few. Often, Aphotic Segment relies on the esotericism of our own psychological ether to distill these whimsical and diabolical mutterings, at the expense of a more responsible use of time…… probably. Henceforth, it comes with great content when a theme happens to appear purely by coincidence, rather than expending countless hours on crafting such an idea.
So what exactly is this coincidence, you ask? Well, some of you may have heard..... and if you haven’t caught wind of this news yet, then you are certainly hearing it for the very first time. Aphotic creative director, Drew Pompa, is finally releasing his very first vinyl record with brother, Pipé Scuttleworth. These dna brothers are referred to ‘round these parts as “The Siege” and they’re excited to introduce their inaugural music artifact by hosting a release party for this month’s Aphotic Segment.
Like the very mantra surrounding Aphotic events, The Siege’s debut E.P on Blank Artists entitled Randall Flurgenbach’s Strange Space Chalet, offers a musical perspective that can be thought of as subversive, incendiary, and crypto-political…. yet, hopeful and universal. Inspired by electronica, drone, fuzz, funk, old souls and the dismantling of tyrannical regimes; The Siege are setting the stage for a world take over, one record at a time; and they hope you will join them in this monumental engagement. The evening’s musical itinerary will include The Siege member, Drew Pompa. Following Drew’s lead will be Detroit experimentalist provocateurs Nospectacle for a rare dj performance, along with one of our favorite nocturnal miscreants, Clayton Jackson.
