Carolyn Chen and Kyle Johnson

the wulf. @ Coaxial Arts

Carolyn Chen - This is a scream (20 min)
An audio essay on some screaming and crying and feelings in music, or a program note for Monsters, cold and warm.

Kyle Johnson - I'm not really much of a talker. (65 min)
I speak alongside video and stereo audio (all run from my own computer). None of those things are happening all the time. It's a set of 20 kind of independent sections. It comes off as autobiographical, but from a constantly shifting perspective.

    "Mutual Assent: Notifications" Untitled Collective

    In December of 2010, following the structure of a legal doctrine employed in the realm of land use and property rights, Untitled Collective asked visitors to abandon social obligations owed to them that they were not currently using or did not intend to use. Through the signed agreements and subsequent notification, Untitled Collective is attempting to obtain the right to alter, combine, and use these obligations and opportunities.

    This event marks the second phase of the project in which the group will notify the third party of the perceived obligations that were abandoned. The event itself will be structured like a rehearsal, a succession of adjustments and reflections where visitors are encouraged to come and go as they please.

    Chico Mello and Fernanda Farah

    "do lado da voz " ("beside the voice") is a concept that appeared on the changeable territory between experimental and popular music, between improvisation and composition, between music and theater. It focuses the form "song" on its periphery: through process and materials such as strangeness, reiteration, silence, displacement, time dilation, noise, reduced theatrical actions, displacement of the song discourse‚s center, revisited so that its characteristic emotionality changes into a vehicle to other forms of perception.

    The project, that assumed different forms during the last 10 years and was performed in various formations, began in the 90s with Chico Mello's de-composition from old Brazilian songs of various eras: "His novel and sometimes startling arrangements alter the songs' tempi, break their rhythm with pauses and repetitions, add samples of old recordings, and juxtapose instrumental dissonance against lyrical vocals, taking the songs out of their original contexts and transforming them into essentially new (re)creations" (Daniella Thompson).

    Working along with the actress and singer Fernanda Farah, the concept was once again displaced and recreated. Her work on a theatrical language sometimes reduced to imperceptible gestures portrays a "minor theatricality" that coexists in a quite natural way "beside the voice", or perhaps "beside the theater".

    Fernanda Farah was born in 1975 in Curitiba, Brazil. Works with Theater, Contemporary Musical Theater, Dance Theater and Performances. Fernanda Farah has aquired a multiple education in Brazil (in theatre, music, dancing and singing). She has worked along with Chico Mello, Christian Kesten, Steffi Weismann, Cristoph Kurzmann, Antoine Beuger, Daniel Ott (Music/Music Theater), Felipe Hirsch, Carla Bessa (Theater), Constanza Macras (Dance Theater) among others.

    Chico Mello - Born in Curitiba, Brazil. Studied music and medicine in Curitiba. Composition studies in São Paulo with J. Penalva and H.J. Koellreuter and in Berlin with Dieter Schnebel and W. Szalonek. Indian music with Amelia Cuni. Experimental, popular, and music theater works with groups in Brazil and German as composer, instrument performer and singer. His work has been performed in new music festivals such as Donaueschinger Musiktagen, Stille Music-Boswil, Switzerland, Other Minds, San Francisco, Bienal de Música Contemporânea, Rio de Janeiro. Co-operation with u.o. Silvia Ocougne, Daniel Ott, Dieter Schnebel, Arnold Dreyblatt, NIcholas Bussmann, Wandelweiser Composers Ensemble, Kammerensemble Neue Musik Berlin. Curator of the contemporary music secction of the "Oficina de Música de Curitiba" and from the "Escuta" festival, Rio de Janeiro.

    Jennifer Torrence performs Matt Sargent's Ghost Music, an hour-long work for solo percussion.

    Jennifer Torrence performs Matt Sargent’s Ghost Music, an hour-long work for solo percussion. The music has been described as precisely notated wind chimes. It focuses on two strata of activity: a gradually rotating mobile of melodies for unpitched metal percussion instruments, which resonates against extended drones performed on bowed crotales. This performance will be the West Coast premiere of the work. The concert will open with a performance of lenguas encubiertos, by Lewis Nielson.

    Matt Sargent is a musician from Hartford, CT. His music grows out of an appreciation of natural resonances, acoustic spaces, field recording, and outdoor listening. A Chesapeake Bay native, his interests are often focused on the movement of bodies of water, tides, and possible musical analogues to these natural processes.

    http://www.mattsargentmusic.com

    Jennifer Torrence is a percussionist from San Diego, where she studies at UCSD with Steven Schick. Jennifer has performed across North America and Europe with ensembles and festivals such as the Bodø Sinfonietta, Arctic Philharmonic, Red Fish Blue Fish, SoundPlay, and eighth blackbird. Jennifer has been featured as soloist with the Lucerne Festival Academy, Ensemble Modern Academy, and the Britten-Pears Program.

    OMAYUMI: FLAT RED

    Osaka-based movement artist Omayumi, visual artist Steven M. Irvin and sound artist Alan Nakagawa will collaborate in a multi-media performance titled FLAT RED. What if you could hear everything in the City at once? The artists set a framework based on senses and improvise to create a series of tone poems.

    Omayumi uses repetitive and spasm like movements to express a sense of frenetic and timeless movement. Irvin is a performance artist and painter. Alan Nakagawa will play his Iso Cube, a mini isolation box filled with tiny percussion, which he processes through a series of effects and loops.
