King Britt Presents Fhloston Paradigm
“Quite extraodinarily evocative of extraterrestrial flight. It ripples with familiar tropes, with echoes of Terry Riley & Tangerine Dream” - The Wire

As a youth, King Britt would listen to the music from the outer reaches of the universe thru the legendary show Star’s End on WXPN in Philadelphia. At the helm was, sonic cosmonaut, Chuck Van Zyl. Tonight, their lives come full circle.

This special release event, celebrates the release of King’s, Fhloston Paradigm - Live On Stars End album that drops in January. A solo excursions using elements from the 2017 AFTER... album.

We are also honored to have the Star’s End man himself Chuck Van Zyl in a rare live show!

Joined by longtime comrade Chaka Benson on full modular set up and John Morrison, spinning an experimental set for the ages!

A night not to be missed.
Chuck van Zyl
Chuck van Zyl
Best known as host of STAR'S END (WXPN's renowned radio program of spacemusic dreamscapes) and as coordinator of The Gatherings (Philadelphia's premiere concert series of innovative music), Chuck van Zyl has also been making his own unique style of electronic music since 1983. Viewing creativity as a component of his own personal spirituality, his musical sensibilities evoke a sense of discovery, with each endeavor marking a new frontier of sound. Throughout the course of his musical existence Chuck van Zyl continues to develop a signature exploratory style. By blending a primitive machine beauty with the highly formed values of more recent times, his solo works are the result of a persistent creativity.
