Jim Willig

Local musician Jim Willig has his paws all over two experimental noise projects: a solo project by the name Audioemetic and another with his pal Susan Hunt, called (waning). Both specialize in dark, droning music that would make a perfect accompaniment to the cinematic works of avant-garde filmmaker Stan Brakhage—had the artist actually used sound in his films.

His group (waning) performs on day one of NorCal Noisefest 2007. For a complete lineup and more information on the festival, visit www.norcalnoisefest.com.
