1. Plattform presents: Records Ruin the Landscap


    from Bergen Kunsthall Added 61 0 0

    DAVID GRUBBS: reading and solo concert John Cage's disdain for records was legendary. He repeatedly spoke of the ways in which recorded music was antithetical to his work. In Records Ruin the Landscape, David Grubbs argues that, following Cage, new genres in experimental and avant-garde music in the 1960s were particularly ill suited to be represented in the form of a recording. These activities include indeterminate music, long-duration minimalism, text scores, happenings, live electronic music, free jazz, and free improvisation. How could these proudly evanescent performance practices have been adequately represented on an LP? In their day, few of these works circulated in recorded form. By contrast, contemporary listeners can encounter this music not only through a flood of LP and CD releases of archival recordings but also in even greater volume through Internet file sharing and online resources. Present-day listeners are coming to know that era's experimental music through the recorded artifacts of composers and musicians who largely disavowed recordings. InRecords Ruin the Landscape, Grubbs surveys a musical landscape marked by altered listening practices.

        from Samuel Jablon Added 14 0 0

        The Poet Sculpture is a performance based sculpture that is performed by poets. It was conceived and created by artist Samuel Jablon. The installation is a moveable platform, made out of different sized crates. Each individual crate is designed for a departed writer. Performers interact with Julia de Burgos, Jayne Cortez, ee cummings, Allen Ginsberg, Barbara Guest, Langston Hughes, Tuli Kupferberg, Taylor Mead, Frank O'Hara, and Pedro Pietri. The formation and words of poets define the sculpture. The poet sculpture is in flux with poets physically interacting with the structure creating and manipulating a visual poem/structure while performing their work. Performers have included: Vito Acconci, Bob Holman, Paolo Javier, Vincent Katz, David Grubbs, Moira Williams, Bushra Rehman, Amy King, Marissa Perel, Megan DiBello, Emanuel Xavier, Steve Dalachinsky, Michael Carter, Nikhil Melnechuk, Yuko Otomo, Michael Taylor, Isak Berbic, Maria Mirabal, Poets in Unexpected Places, and Samuel Jablon.

              TICKETS: http://bit.ly/1c3dPBB Filmmaker Lance Bangs in person, plus Scott Tennent (author of the 33 1/3rd book “Slint – Spiderland”) will intro the show! Two definitive epochs mark underground rock of the last few decades: BS (Before Slint) and AS (After Slint). A staple of the Louisville, KY scene before their 1990 album Spiderland definitively laid down the gauntlet and provided a road map for untold scores of “post-rock” bands around the globe to follow, the short-lived but long-loved Slint has remained one of music fandom’s most mythical, sphinxlike bands — but Breadcrumb Trail, the brand-new documentary by Lance Bangs, now reveals the minds behind the life-changing music. Throughout the ‘80s, the members of Slint grew up forming bands, breaking up and reforming in different configurations: playing hardcore shows while still in elementary school, touring with Samhain as 14-year-olds, recording as melodic hardcore band Squirrel Bait at 15, forming Slint in their late teens and recording the classic Spiderland before they were 21. And then — they broke up before the album’s release, giving no interviews and vanishing into their own shadows. After two decades have passed, Bangs has assembled unseen footage of the teens writing/arranging Spiderland, as well as the first on-camera interviews with the band members and their contemporaries trying to decipher what they had been through. Also featuring Steve Albini, Ian Mackaye, David Grubbs, David Yow, James Murphy and archival material from Will Oldham! Dir. Lance Bangs, 2014, digital presentation, 90 min.

                • David Grubbs and Susan Howe: Frolic Architecture


                  from The Renaissance Society Added 695 1 0

                  Grubbs and Howe return for a performance of their third and most recent release Frolic Architecture. Frolic drops the listener into a soundworld that germinates wildly from this most multiple and heterogeneous of Howe's celebrated collage poems. For long stretches, it is impossible to separate Howe's real-time performance of her fragment-strewn text from Grubbs's further deformations, scatterings, and layerings. These aberrant vocalizations are placed in a landscape in which individual pitches pulse autonomously within thick chords: gravel and cicadas duet. This concert is co-sponsored with The Karla Scherer Center, Poem Present and the University of Chicago Department of English, Committee on Creative Writing.
