For six years, the CTRL+ALT+REPEAT series has been bringing excellent experimental music to L.A., largely focusing on the areas in which electronic forms intersect contemporary classical. Founders Mark and Laura Cetilia are the real deal the former is a programming genius and the latter an accomplished cellist, and the married couple not only curates together, but performs as the improvisatory duo Mem1. As a headliner for this event, they've wrangled Norway's darkly ambient Svarte Greiner (also a member of Deaf Center), whose work has been embraced by fans of the greater "doom" genre, those inspired by the stark and crushing soundscapes of aural pioneers like Sunn O))). Seattle's Crystal Hell Pool, despite the name, isn't quite as dark, though bleakness is his M.O., while L.A.'s own Yann Novak uses digital manipulation to generate tones and textures that veer toward the bright and meditative. Filling out the classical side of the bill are sibling viola and violin players Robin and Cassia Streb, performing a piece by composer Cat Lamb.
