Gambletron and Johnny Forever

Stirring: Transmission

Gambletron creates a live transmission of improvised noise, heavy beats, and distorted vocalizations wearing a mobile FM radio station/synthesizer suit. Dressed in drag, Johnny Forever hands radios to audience members, encouraging them to move Gambletron’s transmission down city streets, augmenting public spaces with the sound of pirate radio.


Gambletron and Johnny Forever create immersive performance environments exploring queer resistance through radio transmission, video, and experimental noise infused with deep drones and heavy beats. Their largely improvised public work is informed by community concerns and stems from queer feminist critique of states and systems.
