Exhibit page
Donn Young, a lauded, veteran photojournalist whose photos have appeared in Time, Newsweek, and the New York Times, will give a presentation on how Hurricane Katrina has affected the city’s artists, its arts scene and its cultural heritage. Young, a UMASS Amherst graduate who has worked as a freelance photographer for the Boston Globe and the Boston Phoenix, speaks from firsthand experience as the hurricane ravaged his studio. For nearly four weeks the library of photography he built over 35 years—over a million images— lay beneath ten feet of water. Young is now visually documenting the ravaged spaces of many New Orleans artists and musicians. He will present this work, past work, speak of his own experience during and after Hurricane Katrina, discuss his library restoration project, and share perceptions on the future of New Orleans’ arts landscape.

sfSoundThe BSC
sfSound: surveying american ideas and traditions of experimental music, performance art, live electronic music, and the various facets of contemporary improvisation the sfSoundGroup has been presenting innovative and challenging concerts in the san francisco bay area since 1999 a true 21st century ensemble the group has an extraordinary roster of bay area composer-performers whose virtuosic and "extended" instrumental abilities are equally balanced with their involvement in composition, electronic sound, performance art, computer audio programming, and experimental instrument making the group's sfSoundSeries presents cutting-edge new works by local and international composers, virtuosic improvisations, theatrical performances, live diffusion of tape music, and avant-garde classics
the group also frequently presents existing work in highly creative "radical transcriptions," blurring the lines between performance, composition, interpretation, and improvisation.

20 October 2006, 8 p.m., Melee, Bhob Rainey, and Matt Krefting at The Nave

$6 at the door. Melee: Nate Wooley, trumpet; Hans Beutow, cello; Ben Hall, percussion; with Greg Kelley, trumpet. Melee is an experimental improvised music trio hailing from Detroit (Hall/Beutow) & New York (Wooley) and features 2/3 of Graveyards (alongside Wolf Eyes' John Olson), 1/3 Blue Collar, and countless fractions of other collaborations both explainable and obscure. Their methods draw from the various sectors of modern classical music, experimental improvisation and noise and together they create some of the most refreshing improvised music happening today. Tonight they will be joined by local trumpeter Greg Kelley of Heathen Shame and Nmperign.

Bhob Rainey (solo), soprano saxophone. One of the finest, most challenging saxophonists in improvised music today who just happens to also be from Boston. Bhob's strangely uncompromising, highly engaging improvisations take forms, turn them upside down, then anagrammize them into head-scratchingly coherent anti-narratives.

Matt Krefting (solo), tapes, Casios, voice, etc. An MVP of the Western Mass underground, putting in time with the Anti-Naturals (a small collection of aesthetes including the Shadow Ring's Graham Lambkin and Idea Fire Co.'s Scott Foust), the Believers, Son of Earth, Shackamaxon (Son of Earth + Double Leopards), Duck (with Thurston Moore) and then some. Matt's solo performances take the Anti-Naturals' aestheticization of the ordinary by placing low volume hisses, hums and well-spaced Casio tones on the pedestal they deserve.

The series was founded in March 2004 to present concerts that explore the crossroads between composition and improvisation in an informal atmosphere conducive to the enjoyment of both aficionados of creative music and the first-time listener. Each concert is produced by New England Conservatory's Callithumpian Consort, an eclectic contemporary music ensemble led by pianist/NEC professor Stephen Drury, with support from the Massachusetts Cultural and Cambridge Arts Councils. The series is co-curated by improvising multi-instrumentalist Jorrit Dijkstra, who will invite special guests to join the Callithumpian Consort in exploring different improvisation strategies.

7 December 2006, 8 p.m., Opensound at The Nave

$7. James Coleman, theremin; Tim Feeney, percussion and electronics; Vic Rawlings, cello and circuitboards. Three Boston stalwarts herd electrons through the most unlikely of paths. James Coleman describes the sound as “…watching a fly, buzzing around paint drying, under a microscope.” How could you not be thrilled? Duos and trios may result in quiet explosions, thunderous silences, and the odd whine.

James Coleman is one of the most astounding living players of the Theremin, a touch-less early electronic instrument invented by Russian Emegree Leon Theremin originally intended for the performance of Classical music. Known for his work with extremely quiet sounds, James is one of the loudest voices and most consistent organizers in the Boston improvised music scene.

Tim Feeney seeks to explore and examine the timbral possibilites inherent in everyday found and built objects. He treats his percussion set-up as a friction instrument, using bows, scrapers, and rosined drumheads as implements and sympathetic resonators to capture and amplify frequencies that go unheard when an object is struck with a mallet. He supplements his acoustic console with an electronic instrument activated from a laptop or no-input mixer, which synthesizes and alters the spectral characteristics of sounds from pure sine tones to speaker pops and white noise.

Vic Rawlings (prepared/ amplified cello, circuitry) is active as an improviser and instrument builder. His performances focus on the metamusical potential of unstable sounds and silences. He has developed instruments that are specific to this compositional aesthetic. As an instrument builder he specializes in modifications of existing instruments and has developed extensive cello preparations. He also continually develops an electronic instrument from extant exposed circuitry, producing, in effect, a modular analog synthesizer with a highly unstable interface. This electronic instrument is paired with a flexible array of exposed speaker elements, chosen for their often unpredictable and idiosyncratic acoustic qualities.
