NOW SELLING ORIGINAL ART

Visibility$120

 

Heavy Gel’s website just went through some re-vamping. For those who are interested- this website is build in WordPress. I’m using a theme called aav1, originally built by Aaron Adam. I have custom coded the hell out of it, and of course there are numerous plugins at play as well.

Any good website, and especially one of a high production artist/studio, should always be in a state of flux and updating. I update with new posts about what we’re up to, frequently, but the site also changes to reflect what’s happening with Heavy Gel and the people involved.

The design update does away with a distinction between portfolio and store, where everything is easily purchasable through paypal. I’ve done some back end structural work that makes it way simpler and streamlined for us to post and have it appear exactly as it should in the layout. It’s way cleaner and more organized.

I’ve finally found the time after 3 years of operating, organizing, moving around, and promoting this screen printing and design studio to really get back to work on my art practice outside of screen printing. I’ve been working on several new series of paintings and collages in addition to new art prints and gig posters. So in this web revamping Heavy Gel will now be selling some of that original work. For the moment, I’ve just put up a page of collages, but check back soon for more original art, artist books, and show updates.

LA COSA LIVE CASSETTES

LA COSA LIVE TAPE
By: Heavy Gel & La Cosa
Media: Cassette
Length: 90min
Edition: 25

$5.00

 

 

 

 

 

 

Heavy Gel recently got access to a cassette tape duplicator, so of course we made some tapes for Chicago noise rock, sex cult, La Cosa. This is a live tape from two April 2015 appearances. The A side features the band live on the air at W.Z.R.D. complete with calls in’s from the local flavors, and an interview with the band. B side is a live show at Live Wire.

La Cosa has grown and changed a lot since their first official release in 2013. This tape reflects the current lineup and sound, where each of the 7 members contributes to an intricate wall of undulating noise, samples, feedback, and squeaks of un-pinpoinable  origin.

Pizza from  next door.

Circuit bending with XSE&E

image (19)
Feb 8th 1-4pm

This is a one day tutorial on circuit bending toys, noise makers, and effects pedals. This is in no way hard science and previous knowledge about electronics, music, or annoying your roommates is NOT required! It’s very simple and experimental.

Students should each bring in one or two functioning BATTERY POWERED electronic toys, keyboards, effect pedals, or noisemakers. Simple is good here. The older the better, try to bring in something from the 80’s or 90’s. Newer electronics tend to use nano chips which are not impossible to bend but much much harder and easier to break. Do not bring in anything too precious, start small, circuit bending is an experimental procedure, save the gems for when you know more about what you’re doing.

We will open up these objects and change their lives and our own forever.

Students only need to bring in their toys and a pair of headphones but IF you’ve got them or foresee doing more of this after class, bring your:

  • soldering iron
  • wire clippers/ strippers
  • needle nose pliers
  • batteries
  • resistors, potentiometers
  • audio jacks
  • switches or buttons

$50, materials included
