Aaron Dilloway – Live 9.10.22

Only 1 left in stock


This is the official live recording of Aaron Dilloway’s set in Ithaca, NY on September 10th 2022. With only three days to plan, the venue for the show was acquired, the bill was set, and the news was spread. On the day of the event, 60+ attendees arrived from all corners of upstate NY. The audience was primed and the tone was set by performances from locals Flose, Magnetic Coroner and Jen Kutler. Then performing in almost total darkness, Dilloway brought us through a brooding field of paranoia rife with signature displays of raw psychosis.

The timing of how quickly this event came together and drew a crowd from a distance speaks to the power of Dilloway’s live performances and their reputation : at all costs, this is not a set to be missed. An example of that power is present in this recording, as it was a unique audio/visual spectacle, where the room itself is played as much as the tapes and mic’ed objects. Dizzying loops, nauseous breathing, and staggered metal in stereo are all present. The tension builds with each vignette, building a panoramic anxiety until finally it is released in a storm of frenzied static. This privilege to witness that left an audience changed is now available on cassette for all to hear. 28 minutes and 35 seconds of essential listening.

Recycled tapes, recycled tape cases, silk-screened/hand-stamped labels, and two color j-cards printed on recycled paper.
