Doors 8PM,

To mark the release of his first Blocks Recording Club CD, The
Definitive Host, Toronto sound artist Brian Joseph Davis will be going
on a limited tour December 07 and early March 08.

The December dates includes stops in Los Angeles and San Francisco where
he’ll perform his sets with a laptop, doing a mix of work like 10 Banned
Albums Burned then Played and Five Boxsets Played On Fast Forward. He
closes this set with a Steve Reich-like phasing performance on 10 CD
players.It’s high-concept meets low-tech.

The Definitive Host collects three years of limited editions and
projects including “Eula” (Sony/BMG’s notorious End User License
agreement scored for choir), “Yesterduh” (a chorus of people trying to
remember the words to “Yesterday”) as well as Minima Moralia (a punk 7
inch based on the writings of Theodor Adorno) and 10 Banned Albums
Burned Then Played.
