Experimental artist Suzy Poling birthed Pod Blotz in Chicago’s Congress Theater in 2001. Poling sound is an interesting cauldron of tape manipulation, organ drones, melodies, electo-acoustic sounds, synthesizers and voice. Pod Blotz is a solo project that is derived from conceptual artistic endeavors and sonic explorations relating to Science Fiction, phenomenon and material reactions. Poling’s sound is all analog is staying true to the lineage of taped sounds made by Stockhausen and Tod Dockstader. She works as an installation and sound artist and also produces a lot of two-dimensional work in the form of photography and collage.
