Jennie Vee and Slim Jim Phantom (Phantom Vee):
Nedda Afsari's "The Viewing"
Lethal Amounts Presents: “The Viewing: The Muses of Nedda Afsari”
Under the guise Muted Fawn, Iranian-raised & LA-based photographer Nedda Afsari looks to capture imagery that focuses on the dynamics of power. Her work shines a light on the human subconscious, visions, fears, & desires. Examining the dichotomies that exist between fantasy & reality, masculine & feminine, and light & dark, Afsari celebrates and traverses the realms of liberation, power, control, and the divine feminine.
Her first solo exhibit, The Viewing: The Muses of Nedda Afsari, will open on July 7th, 2018 at Lethal Amounts Gallery in downtown Los Angeles. The opening will feature DJ sets from LA-based musicians Jennie Vee (Eagles of Death Metal, Courtney Love), Andrew Clinco (Drab Majesty), and Kris Esfandiari (King Woman), and will run from 7 PM to 10 PM.
Recently, Afsari photographed St. Vincent for her album “Masseduction,” & was also featured in articles and interviews by i-D Magazine & Playboy. She works closely with LA-based record label Dais.

"ARF stands for Attack, Release, Filter. This is pedal comes filled with good synthy goodness! The Attack/Release envelope's range is determined by the knobs on the face, while the activation of the envelop and the duration of the sustained peak are controlled by a foot switch or CV gate signal.
This means much greater control than typical "envelope follower" style filter pedals, which have a habit of triggering at the wrong times. The envelope boasts an absurd range, from "click-and-it's-over" to multi-measure swells and drops. It can also be sent out of the pedal for integration with other CV compatible gear.
The envelope is wired directly to the filter, an aggressive low pass type filter with enough "extra" on the resonance to get some self oscillation. The filter cutoff can also be controlled via CV input. The filter can be over-driven via the "drive" knob for a familiar stomp box sound. There are even a few settings that can create pitch shifting glitch effects!"
