Istvan Medgyesi

Istvan Medgyesi is a working musician in Cleveland, Ohio. He plays somewhere between the dark heart of song in the tradition of the 1970's greats and the experimental urges of the seriously avant-garde. His work is urgent and immediate. One gets the sense that he's living the songs as much as playing them.

Performing on various acoustic and electronic instruments, listeners can hear the echoes of an array of musical traditions intertwined with modal explorations and occasional forays into noise and drone. From raga based acoustic compositions to random voltage generated melodies, the focus is on the unifying factors of sound and style.

Automatic Weapons is the latest project from Vincent DiFranco and Michael Bashur. Based in Cleveland Ohio, DiFranco and Bashur have musically collaborated for 10 years, with their current project reflecting the marriage of Midwestern roots and their fortuitous meeting in Los Angeles. Their electro-rock debut album, Young Lovers / Dystopian Future, is a work of wonder that moves you from the dusk of dawn into the glowing depths of night. With original musicality and the notion of grasping onto the uncertainty of youth, chance and hope reflected in their lyrics, Automatic Weapons will remind you what it is to be alive when forging yourself into the horizon.
