Ithaca Underground is proud to present Diamond Terrifier and Patrick Higgins on July 18th at The Space (700 W Buffalo St, Ithaca, NY).

Diamond Terrifier is Sam Hillmer of ZS - his saxophone and electronics solo project, to be precise. Named after the English translation of the Indo-Tibetan god-name Vajrabairahva, Diamond Terrifier is concerned with the potential positive qualities of destruction as mediated by noise/drone sheets of sound music.  Check out some footage of this performance in Philly earlier this spring and last year in NYC:

Joining Sam on tour will be composer/performer Patrick Higgins. Based out of New York, Higgins is a graduate of Columbia University, where he studied philosophy and comparative literature. An active presence in the NYC independent music scene since 2004, Higgins composed and played guitar in the post-rock duo Animal. Recently, he has turned his attentions to the Baroque, arranging and performing the music of J.S. Bach for solo guitar and quadraphonic stereo electronics: Bachanalia. Among numerous other compositions for small ensemble and chamber orchestra, a recording of Higgins' String Quartet No.2 is currently in production with the MIVOS Quartet. A record of video-game inspired electronic works is now available on ELE Records, Monkey Mountain. You can check out "Bouree, Lute Suite No.1" from Bachanalia streaming online here.

You can event find a conversation between the <>T and Higgins right here along with some Diamond Terriffier tracks.

Ithaca/Philly indie/mathrock crew Doll Eyes will be closing out the show with some sweet melodious relief

Also performing will be Ithaca's BRIAN!, who will be debuting a brand new piece at the show...

... along side the lush, ambient blend of digital and organic from Paper Armies.
