TONIGHT! Instinct Control live on MCoQ.

Yeah, this guy >>>

Ryan T. Dunn (Sex, Power & Labor) from F Newsmagazine on Vimeo.

"The connection between the individual and technology always takes time to develop into an accessible living relationship. As humanity welcomes technology into its everyday life it first utilizes, then feels comforted by, and then is consumed."

Ryan T. Dunn's Instinct Control started out as RGB, in 2003, playing only delayed microphone feedback. Since then, the project has evolved to include voice, trumpet, tape, and chiefly the manual manipulation of tape player circuitry. Interest in direct physical intervention in the produced sound, developing a connection with obsolete technology and using and drawing from the "wrong things" as tools of expression permeates the project. Recently the use of voice has expanded to include the mouth as a source of touch contact as well as learning the language of the machine.

Currently based in Chicago, and passing through these parts on tour, Ryan brings Instinct Control's "body circuit synth noise" absolutely live to My Castle of Quiet radio. Check out the video above for a dazzling example of Instinct Control in action.

The above has been largely edited from Ryan's self-penned bio.

Old caretaker finds that one grime-covered key in 1,000, and lets me in @ midnight.
