Live in the Laser Dome: Zen Mother with Sound Cipher

If you go to only one Laser Dome event this year… you need to rearrange your priorities. But seriously, this pairing of two of Seattle’s most intriguing bands is essential. Zen Mother—who recently executed a live soundtrack to Alejandro Jodorowsky’s The Holy Mountain at Northwest Film Forum—create apocalyptic yet tuneful rock that reflects their love of post-punk iconoclasts This Heat and sinister avant-gardist Igor Wakhévitch. Sound Cipher consist of sax maniac Skerik, Master Musicians of Bukkake bassist Timm Mason, and Primus drummer Tim Alexander, and their February debut show at the Sunset was a revelation. Channeling some of krautrock’s darkest inclinations (e.g., Faust, CAN, Cluster), the feral funk of Miles Davis’s electric era, and even Porter Ricks’s dubwise techno, Sound Cipher offer an amalgam of improvised music that’s potent and disorienting.
