Phog Masheeen (Mark Soden and Bill Almas from Costa Mesa, California) use home-brew instruments, common objects, live-mix video, and extended techniques involving dry ice to create a sonic environment that is part Jules Verne submersible, part unbalanced washing machine on the spin cycle. That’s right – dry ice. AND the heating element from an E-Z Bake Oven.


BiRdOrGaN features Dei Xhrist (voice), Marc Bisson (guitar), Mike Funaiole (analog synth), Michael Dailey (voice, drums, general mayhem) with live video projection by Gregory Kowalski.

Vanessa Lefabvre was kind enough to record; five will get you ten that it will be on the 2013 Birdorgan CD.
