An intensely intimate and confrontational performance by Pharmakon, a death industrial music project from Margaret Chardiet. Chardiet describes her drive to make noise music as a kind of exorcism, making it possible to express her â€œdeep-seated need/drive/urge/possession to reach other people and make them FEEL something [specifically] in uncomfortable/confrontational ways.â€ In addition to being one of the few females working in a male dominated noise scene, Chardiet stands out for her meticulous rigor and attention to form, with every performed element methodically planned out in advance for maximum emotional impact.
If you’re looking to learn more, DummyMag has a great interview with Chardiet from last year, and EMPAC’s event page has more info as well. If you’re not the contest type, tickets are $18 and currently available through EMPAC.
