SKROL, EINLEITUNGSZEIT, SCHLOSS TEGAL, JOE CHRIST -- Brutal in its approach, yet glorious in its symphonic grandeur, the sounds of Skrol (Czech Republic) recall the monolithic ambience of early Laibach and dark oratories of The Moon Lay Hidden Beneath A Cloud. Similarly, Slovakia's Einleitungszeit fills hidden chambers with thick percussion and coarse sheets of deep sonic madness. Schloss Tegal (from the U.S.) renders alien sounds even darker via manipulation. Local filmmaker Joe Christ screens some of his work as well. Eyedrum (Foy)

THEATER
The Bard may be scratching his head, but Falco would be proud. The Georgia Shakespeare Festival sheds its history of period productions and embarks on Peter Shaffer's award-winning AMADEUS. The first show of the season, it opens JUNE 15 and will be performed in repertory through Aug. 12. John Ammerman takes the GSF stage as Salieri, the jealous composer who conspires against his younger competition Wolgang Amadeus Mozart. Oh, rock me, Amadeus. Conant Performing Arts Center on the Oglethorpe University campus, 4484 Peachtree Road. $20-$27. 404-264-0020. www.gashakespeare.org.
