Nervous Operator is Sacred Sound Club member Spencer Davis' electronic project. Taking cues from industrial, ambient and dub, the music is characterized by syncopated rhythms churning under contemplative atmospheres. His new set, written after moving to Chicago from Vancouver, is a reflection of urban landscapes in the midst of active reconfirmation by the ancient swamps on which both cities were founded. Mechanical sounds coexist with verdescent meditations. Each element is the entropy of the other, the successes of one modifying the strategies of the other. Working in tandem to the audio is a synchronized non-video visual element by Vancouver artist Thomas Nugent, which provides a hallucinatory optical focus for the trance inducing sonance.
