An evening of noisy new music exploring the sonic potential of household objects. The event will be hosted in a 1914 Venice Craftsman redesigned and remodeled in 1998 by Architect Roger F. White to emphasize the historical conditions including site, culture, environment and economics in relationship to the context of the time. Alterations to the house are always in progress as part of the evolution of a Contemporary Bungalow for the 21st Century. The night will consist of three separate performances:
James Klopfleisch – John Lithgow 1; a piece for processed bowed milk carton, where the speaker channels the ghost (and bits of text) from the great John Lithgow.
Liam Mooney – Drum Solo; a noisy combination of drums, vacuum cleaners, and an assortment of plumbing and electrical supplies.
Todd Lerew – Test Weekly; for smoke detectors and fog machine.
