Gambletron (QC/LA)

Gambletron is a queer sound/performance artist and musician based out of Montreal, Canada currently displaced in Los Angeles. Through the years they’ve been known for their noise synth performances in clubs and galleries performing sets through large piles of radios, or noise performances in unique spaces using roving transmission. More recently they’ve been adjusting and reshuffling their practice to accommodate our new normal and have been exploring ways to insert the internet back into physical space through the use of Projectors and FM pirate radio.  For Acoustic Mirror Gambletron will be using a small portable mobile synth set up, and Radios as a sound system to go out in the world and perform/ transmit an outdoor live show for living things that can not catch Covid-19.  This includes cool energetic objects like rocks and bridges.
