PETER J. WOODS (Milwaukee Musician/Playwright/Performance Artist)
While he splits his time equally between curating shows, running a label and playing in numerous groups, Milwaukee artist Peter J Woods' solo work resides within its own universe. Pulling equally from the worlds of harsh noise and absurdist theatre, Woods' performances build a sense of terror from simple imagery, muted text and an unpredictable barrage of silence and sound. Woods has worked with a number of musical groups, from punk and metal bands like Galactic Cannibal and Mountain Language to collaborations with a wide range of experimental artists, including Olivia Block, Tatsuya Nakatani, xALLxFORxTHISx, Alex Kmet (of Climax Denial), Phoned Nil Trio, and UWM Faculty members Chris Burns and Amanda Schoofs. He has toured across the country off and on for a decade, performing at events such as End Tymes Festival in New York and Eugene Noise Fest in Oregon, alongside artists such as Negativland, The Haters, Hiroshi Hasegawa, and more. Woods also runs FTAM, a record label and concert promotion organization that hosts a wide range of shows, including the annual Milwaukee Noise Festival for the first eight years and the St Louis Noise Fest for two. His theatre work has been shown at the Minneapolis Fringe Festival, the Chicago Sketch and Comedy Festival, and the Sensoria series at UW-Milwaukee.
