Slightly OT but still Experiemental: Fwd: Tom is playing in an intriguing show this Saturday (involving snails)

Folks this is a gig here in NY that sounds pretty cool.  It's a show my violin teacher is doing with a prepared keyboard artist and snails, thought it was worth sharing to this community...

Hello Everyone

I'm playing with an interesting composer/musician from the Bay Area this Saturday in Brooklyn.  Eric is also performing a solo set on Sunday.

Announcing two concerts this weekend in Brooklyn:

Saturday, July 12, 2008, 8pm:

Eric Glick Rieman (Berkeley, CA) in a rare East Coast performance on his modified and prepared Rhodes electric piano. The performance includes a trio premiere of "Snail Road House" a score created in collaboration with snails. [ This is for real. One of my snails is very interested in the project! ed.]
Glick Rieman is joined by Shayna Dulberger (acoustic bass, of Stars like Fleas, The Young Equestrians, and many other groups) and Tom Swafford (violin, of the Emergency String Quartet.)

195 Skillman Ave.
Brooklyn, NY 11211

Sunday, July 13, 8pm
Eric Glick Rieman performs solo on prepared and modified Rhodes electric piano.

"Rieman's instrument looks like a post-apocalyptic Rhodes piano; some of its insides are removed and sitting next to it, and it has all sorts of foreign objects crammed into it like shrapnel — with strategically placed microphones to capture the various sounds of it all. … The range of colors that
he got out of this instrument was astonishing…"
