The Bunker presents Bruno Pronsato at subTonic
107 Norfolk Street
21+, 10p-4a

Over the past two years, Seattle producer Bruno Pronsato has taken several giant steps toward the peak of the experimental techno mountain. A sound scientist whose work is equally playful and rigorous, Pronsato deploys a canny use of space and idiosyncratically fashioned rhythms to disorient and build suspense-like some 21st-century Miles Davis or Eric Dolphy of the laptop. Despite being a minimal-techno artist, Pronsato offers a palette that's as full of unexpected patterns and meticulously rendered textures as a Kandinsky painting. Pronsato's compositions unsettle in original ways, yet they also slyly tickle funnybones. Often both humorous and erotic, his cuts are the wild cards that adventurous DJs pull out when they want to take the dance floor to strange new levels of motion. Therefore, Pronsato's releases have become elite selectors' secret weapons of beguilingly baffling quirkiness that still move asses. The Bunker is proud to welcome one of our favorite artists for his debut NYC appearance.

Also tonight, we say farewell to our good friend and resident, DJ Movement. Movement has been resident for almost the entire run of the Bunker, starting in June 2003 (the Bunker launched in January 2003). He has selflessly DJed many, many opening slots when the place was really empty, but always manages to fill the dancefloor by the end of the set. We love this guy and are sad to see him go, but we wish him all the luck in the world as he moves to California to study plant biology at UC Berkeley.
