wrekmeisterharmonies.png As part of the Museum of Contemporary Art's "Face The Strange" series, local audio ambient artist J.R. Robinson, who performs under the nom de noise Wrekmeister Harmonies, will screen, and conduct a live score to, his short film You’ve Always Meant So Much To Me.

To help perform his score, Robinson will be joined by members of Chicago's rich metal community, including Chicagoist favorites The Atlas Moth, Bloodiest, and Anatomy of Habit. The screening is TONIGHT at 6 p.m, at the Museum of Contemporary Art, 220 E. Chicago Ave.

If you're an sonically adventurous Chicagoan looking to indulge your curiosity for the city's nascent noisemakers, then this particular "Face The Strange" should be right up your alley. Do a faceplant into the unusual by clicking below to watch the video, filled with surreal, distortion-heavy sound collages, and hungover-looking owls. (Check out the 0:31 mark). This December 27th performance is FREE with museum admission.
