He'd say he was a radical before he'd say he was a musician — a laptop artist with a love of grit and noise. Grey Filastine, once based in Seattle but now a nomad loosely based in Barcelona, is a creative soul. He seems to also love a good party, a beat and a shopping cart wired for sound.

With that in mind, we asked Filastine to perform at a junkyard in Austin — not just any junkyard, either, but a place called "The Cathedral of Junk." It's a home for more than 60 tons of unwanted consumer has-been items, transformed into art installations by Vince Hannemann. Here, Filastine brought his attitude, his electronics and a cellist friend to perform "Btalla" and an excerpt from "Dance of the Garbagemen."
