MICHAEL EVANS is an improvising drummer/percussionist/ thereminist/composer whose work investigates and embraces the collision of SOUND and THEATRICS. While his primary instrument is an unconventionally altered drumset, his work with UNUSUAL sound sources includes found objects, homemade instruments, the theremin and various digital and homemade analog electronics.

SEAN MCMILLAN is a recognized fixture in Charleston's experimental music collective. Similarly, he employs the use of homemade instruments such as electronically manipulated toys, as well as theremin, a modified cello, unpredictable analog circuit bends, and the ever-present "death cymbal".
His contribution to various local ensembles such as Le Chambre Nautili, Subterranean Blu Minds and The Quiddity spans over 20 years, but his creative GENIUS and unbound INVENTIVENESS is best showcased in an intimate, solo performance setting that will be offered exclusively at KING DUSKO on the evening of Friday August 15th.
For those unfamiliar with the venue, King Dusko has quickly become a MAGNET for the young,creative majority in downtown Charleston. Offering monthly underground art installations, a free-thinking gallery atmosphere, coffee/wine etc, a spacious courtyard, all in an unequalled location on historic King Street. For locals and beyond with a craving for the avant-garde and progressive art and music, this event is simply not to missed and certainly never replicated!
