    Aki Onda "Lost City" with Loren Connors & Alan Licht audioMER, 2015 The images were shot in New York between 2001 and 2002. It was during the time when we were still in shock from 9.11. The stars and stripes suddenly became visible everywhere in the city. Soon after, the invasion of Afghanistan started. Everybody was living under an indefinable fear - not knowing what would happen in the future. (Aki Onda). Lost City project started as a series of photographs shot by visual artist and composer Aki Onda in New York starting right after 9.11 in 2001. A decisively introspective response to the major world event taking place, his pictures were devoid of direct references, but documented his immediate surroundings, focusing on how what happened resonated on a personal micro-level. Since 2005, Onda has been presenting this series as slide projections, which function as a visual score for improvisation, and performing with NYC avant-garde musicians Loren Connors and Alan Licht. Two improvisations on this LP were recorded at Anthology Film Archives in NYC in 2007. Lost City contains the vinyl, a folded 20 x 30 inch poster with the complete photograph series and an A4 risoprinted booklet containing the accompanying text written by NYC based curator/writer Niels Van Tomme. The record's A side is a duo piece between Connors and Licht that consists of wandering, buzzing guitar drones with occasional noisy eruptions. It highlights the almost twin-like connection between the longtime collaborators, with telepathic intersecting guitar lines and a sense of unease seeping through. The B side is Connors solo and is a very lyrical and atmospheric ambient piece that is equally sparse and spacious. The LP is limited to 350 copies and distributed by N.E.W.S. www.audiomer.org

            "Karen Revisited" from Sonic Youth's 2002 album, "Murray Street". LEE RANALDO BAND TOURING AUSTRALIA IN OCTOBER Fans of iconic alternative rock band Sonic Youth take note; founding member and guitarist LEE RANALDO is heading to our shores with his band for two exclusive shows in Brisbane and Sydney. These performances coincide with the band’s appearance at the Melbourne Festival and see Ranaldo taking the stage with band mates and friends, Steve Shelley and Alan Licht. The highly acclaimed artist will be touring off the back of his new album Between the Times and the Tides (out now through Remote Control): ‘A wealth of rock gems that shine with a warm-hearted, Neil Young-like intensity. Those wanting clangour and dissonance will be disappointed, but everyone else will be pleasantly surprised.’ – NME ‘Ranaldo’s melodies linger like thunder, strong enough to make an impression but letting the instrumental lightning do the stunning.’ – Consequence of Sound Joined by an all-star cast including Nels Cline, Alan Licht, John Medeski, bassist Irwin Menken and long-time associate Steve Shelley, the album is equal parts smart, confident and loose in a manner that recalls some of the best rock ’n’ roll… yet still sounds like a fantastic new style. This year, Ranaldo was ranked as equal #1 guitarist of all time by SPIN magazine, sharing the position with Sonic Youth band mate Thurston Moore. This accolade joins the many Ranaldo has received as one of the seminal artists of his generation, including also being ranked amongst the greatest guitarists of all time by Rolling Stone Magazine. Ranaldo is also known as a writer, record producer and visual artist, with his work appearing in countless exhibitions and solo shows. Recent live duo performances with partner Leah Singer, Contre Jour, have been large scale, multi projection quadraphonic sound+light events, w Lee performing suspended electric guitar phenomena. Before founding Sonic Youth with band mate Thurston Moore he was an art student at Binghamton University. Ranaldo was also a member of Glenn Branca's electric guitar ensemble, touring throughout the United States and Europe. These intimate shows are sure to enthral as Lee Ranaldo Band embarks on this Australian tour. Don’t miss your chance to see much-admired artist live in concert.
