Live Stage: NewIdeas MusicSeries II [us New York, NY]

new-ideas-music-series2.jpgNewIdeas MusicSeries II :: Pianos @ 158 Ludlow, New York, NY :: Sunday, October 24, 2010 at 8:00 p.m. :: with Phill Niblock + Katherine Liberovskaya with Shelley Hirsch; Michael J. Schumacher + Nisi Jacobs; Richard Garet, Tom Chiu, and Michael Vincent Waller with ensemble Sean Meehan, Tom Chiu, Gregor Kitzis, Ha-Yang Kim, Dan Panner, and Andrew Lafkas :: Free ::

Bios:

Phill Niblock is a New York-based minimalist composer and multi-media musician and director of Experimental Intermedia, a foundation born in the flames of 1968’s barricade-hopping. He has been a maverick presence on the fringes of the avant garde ever since. In the history books Niblock is the forgotten Minimalist. That’s as maybe: no one ever said the history books were infallible anyway. His influence has had more impact on younger composers such as Susan Stenger, Lois V Vierk, David First, and Glenn Branca.

909102149-2.jpgThe Lampo fall season begins :: Saturday, Oct 16, 2010 at 8:00 p.m. :: with Tristan Perich :: at the Graham Foundation, Madlener House, 4 West Burton Place, Chicago, IL :: Admission is free but reservations are required :: RSVP here ::

Lampo and the Graham Foundation are very happy to bring you Tristan Perich and his “1-Bit Symphony” with 1-bit video. His new five movement work was just released. The press is agog and Grampo too.

Live Stage: Tanka, Pure & Rashad Becker [de Berlin]

41787_144984522213503_5797355_n.jpgTanka, Pure & Rashad Becker :: Saturday, October 16, 2010 at 9:00 p.m. – October 17, 2010 at 1:00 a.m. :: NK, Elsen str 52 2hh Neukoelln 12059 ::

“Tanka’s music turns away from traditional ambient explorations of space, and takes a more direct approach focusing on the dynamics of stress and release through repetition and the use of sustained drones and simple patterns.”

“… single guitar plucks are transformed into immersive five minute long pieces which sound like the definition of anxiety”

PURE (Vienna/Berlin)
Working in the darker and heavier domains of the sonic universe he creates hypnotic, soundtrack-like sound pieces that trigger associations of dreams and science fiction novels. His latest studio album “Ification” was released on Portuguese label Cronica Electronica in 2008. Current collaborations include the Heart Chamber Orchestra (together with Erich Berger), a trio with polish percussionists Hati and a duo with technobass veteran Martin Maischein. Continue reading
