Scene in Easton: Selectronics and Dada Trash Collage at Porters Pub

By Christina Georgiou

Josh Finck is Selectronics, whose art is as much visual as it is electronic music.
William Freed, aka Dada Trash Collage, creates his unique
sounds with vintage synthesizers.
Two Easton artists teamed up for a live show last night at Porters' Pub that brought the city's deeper-than-most-people-realize well of creative talent to a packed Saturday night house.

Josh Finck, who performs under the name Selectronics, and William Freed, aka Dada Trash Collage, created a blistering live psychedelic melange of electronic audio and visual effects who's style is somewhat hard to describe.

Their music and Finck's live visual art is the product of synthesizers and electronic equipment that was cutting edge in years past, and each artist has a style that is entirely their own, futuristic, yet hauntingly familiar.

While both have day jobs, their art is clearly their passion.

Dada Trash Collage's tenth disc release, "Can't Pause People", is set for somewhere around Febrary 20, while Seletronics has a full-length disc and three EPs on offer.

Maybe this is the first you've heard of these two creative and unusually-talented Easton audiologists on the local music scene, but we think it's a good bet that it won't be the last.
