The Vertigo Swirl, which extracts cosmic energies from various points in time and space and converts them into auditory vibrations within the human hearing spectrum, was first observed by local guitarist Brian Andrew Marek during his so-called "basement experiments" last December. Since Marek went public with his discoveries in January, the Vertigo Swirl's unique audio signature has reportedly been heard as far afield as Germany, Japan, Finland and New Zealand, but this Saturday will be the first - and possibly only - time that the phenomenon will occur in real time before an audience.
While Risch and the other professionals note that, despite the academic nature of their presence, the general public is welcomed to attend this unprecedented event, they do stress the intensity of the experience. "It's an unsettling thing," said D.B. Cooper, International Percussionist of Mystery, "when you stare into the Vertigo Swirl, it stares back at you. And it smells kinda funny, too, come to think of it." The experiment begins 8:00 pm on Saturday, May 23rd at the Way Out Club, with further vibratory demonstrations by The Lushes and DinoFight.
