Last summer, Mike Skorcz of Milwaukee’s John the Savage teamed up to write new music as Cyborg Fortress with his pal, Kenneth Averitt, keeping things simple as just a two-piece, but creating a full range of sounds, central to two main sounds: guitar and synth. Adding a myriad of pedals, effects and beats, and Cyborg Fortress’ sound became fully realized not too long after the band’s first songs were committed to memory, and the two quickly found steady gigs, opening for many of Milwaukee’s electronic-slanted shows. Not a far cry from the raucous sensibilities of Skorcz’ full-time band, John the Savage, Cyborg Fortress still leaves behind those elements of organic sound that JTS employs, and instead, takes the similar raucous attitude and lets the instruments carry the main conversation, loading layer and layer of improvised noises, with a condensed energy that lends to compact compositions. Tune into 91.7 FM WMSE (or stream, live, at WMSE.org) at 8 p.m. tonight to hear live music from Cyborg Fortress. Missed out? Catch it in the WMSE archives.
