Tuesday, April 24, 2001 8 pm The Knitting Factory, AlterKnit Space 74 Leonard Street, Manhattan, 212-219-3055 RECESS, an ongoing series of experimental improvisation maenad (G3, Virus and piano) http://www.refinedclinicalresearch.com/index.html "Like most people, I modify recordings of everyday life with synthesizers and samplers. The resulting music sounds like someone lying awake at night, trying to find a good station on the radio. Musical influences are many, but include Coil, Nurse with Wound and The Hafler Trio." Charles Cohen (analog Buchla Music Easel) http://www.voicenet.com/~ccohen "you know....the usual" (Pauline Oliveros: "Well Charles your "usual" is pretty unusual and wonderful") David Lee Myers (multiprocessor feedback, devices, loops) http://www.pulsewidth.com "The idea is that an effects device is fed some of its own output--much like a squealing speaker which accidentally feeds the microphone supplying its input--and electrons begin to flow as they wish. The trick is to shape this flow, select the feedback paths which create an aesthetically pleasing (or whatever) direction and shape. What is required is several devices whose business it is to bend sound into various shapes, and a routing scheme which allows them to speak to each other and to themselves."
