Rishi of Whatever Forever Tapes will unveil a four-headphone listening hub for its new cassette tape, Phantasmagoria, at a Fresh Produce Art Collective open studio event Friday at SeedCo Studios.

Rolf Petermann of Karma Vision and Brian Miller of Broken Fader Cartel and Ad Astra Arkestra spearhead Rishi. A variety of other local musicians contributed to the making of Phantasmagoria: Bobby Sauder, Ben Kimbal, Danny Barkofske, Sam Mitchie and Carey Scott. Listen to a song from the tape, "Gray Me," below.

Petermann calls Rishi "a trial-and-error blend" of old and new technologies — the tape incorporates an early-'90s Casio keyboard, a student-model alto sax, snare and floor tom drums, a cymbal, and live and post-production effects. Rishi will also perform at a Live @ KJHK studio session at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

In addition to the display of Rishi’s music project at SeedCo Studios this Friday, local bands CS Luxem, Dean Monkey and the Dropouts, and Mau Bones will perform starting at 9 p.m. as part of a Final Friday after-party.

Update: Despite the rescheduling of many Final Friday events, the open studio event at SeedCo Studios has not been canceled.
