    THE VISIONARIUM Night 6: DRUMSPYDER w/ Splynter, DJ Story (Closing Night Masquerade) Genre: Electronic/IDM Cover: $10 Adv / $12 DOS Ages: 21+ Event Listing: http://ashevillemusichall.com/music-schedule/night-the-visionarium-drumspyder-splynter-dj-story/ TWENTYSEVEN FOLDS visual residency presents: THE VISIONARIUM. The perfect combination of SIGHT + SOUND... a July filled w/ projection mapping, visual performances, and cutting edge musical talent! ***CLOSING NIGHT MASQUERADE!!!*** DRUMSPYDER - https://soundcloud.com/drumspyder Originating in San Francisco's crucible of bellydance, bass culture, and world music fusion, Drumspyder has released 3 albums worth of original music (most recently "Kytheria" on Dakini Records) and is a prolific remixer, lending his signature live percussion and melodic touch to the Desert Dwellers, the Spy from Cairo, Mirabai Ceiba, and various traditional Arabic ensembles, with many more on the way. In addition, his music has been featured in numerous dance DVDs and theatrical productions. 2013 saw Drumspyder appearing at festivals throughout North America, including Luminosity, Photosynthesis, Gratifly, Shambhala, and MEME, as well as the Hadra Trance Festival in France. SPLYNTER - https://soundcloud.com/splynter SPLYNTER is a fresh, introspective look into the minds of Asheville-based Graham Tolbert and Carter Magee. Their unique live performances captivate the audience with an edgy, unpredictable, and well rounded sonic experience. Splynter's all-original compositions range from established styles such as Drum n Bass, House, and Downtempo, to freeform Avant Garde nonsense reminiscent of an intelligent yet ancient extraterrestrial dialect. Their sound is that of shared emotional and cognitive dissonance/resonance that blurs the line between music and musician. As we humans approach omnicide, Splynter moves us through to the assimilation of consciousness and digital information.
