Lori Napoleon’s stunning live sets combine her innate sense of layering and flow as a killer techno DJ with a mad scientist zeal for creating new sounds from hardware, including building her own synthesizers out of vintage telephone equipment. Crafting each show differently, we don’t know which of her brilliant machines will be communing with us this evening, which only makes us all the more excited to have her on the lineup!
