      AXIAL MUSIC for BEACH BOX Friday 8-31-12 performance at White Box (New York City): David Arner (keyboard, balophone, percussion) John Beaulieu (keyboard, harmonica) George Quasha (percussion, balophone) Charles Stein (voice, recorder. harmonica) Axial Music follows a principle of spontaneous composition without the intention of honoring precedent or previous patterns, guided instead by radical following of actual sounds generated. When successful the sound event has a life independent of the musicians and may generate an altered state of listening. In addition to sound events, the performance has visual components, including axial drawing & video. The projected video, "Mouth Logic" by George Quasha, includes a trombone solo by George Lewis. Curated by Juan Puntes as part of the end-of-summer performance/art series "Beach Box," which featured a few inches of beach sand covering the whole gallery floor (329 Broome Street, east of the Bowery). Camera: Sherry Williams; technical assistance: Susan Quasha.

      • Axial Transmission (for the DownTown Ensemble) [2]

        "Axial Transmission" is a sound work (approximately 13 minutes) in George Quasha's axial music series, reconceived for performance with the DownTown Ensemble, which became the first all-acoustic non-solo axial drumming performance. This second performance occurred at The Hudson Opera House in Hudson, New York, June 22, 2013. Performers: Charles Stein (voice art), William Hellerman (recitation of preverbs), Daniel Goode (clarinet), Alex Waterman (cello), Leyna Marika Papach (violin). Glimpses of a projected video in background, "Mouth Logic" (2011) by George Quasha, provide additional moments of sound (the voice of Chie Hasegawa Hammons and the trombone of George Lewis). On-screen phrases are "preverbs" created by George Quasha for this piece, spoken here by Bill Hellermann (but sometimes only partially audible). “Axial music” follows a principle of spontaneous composition without reference to precedent or previous patterns. The music is guided instead by a radical following of actual sounds and languages generated. The emerging sound event is presumed to have an intelligent life independent of the musicians and hence may produce an altered state of listening. In addition to sound and language events, the performance has visual components and sometimes includes video or live axial drawing. In this performance poet/artist/musician Charles Stein contributes vocal-axial-abstract language in dialogue with George Quasha’s axial percussion, joined by The DownTown Ensemble. See http://www.soundart.org/dte.html and http://www.quasha.com This program is made possible with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, a State Agency, and private contributors.
