A few random things that found their way into the AMN inbox:
Innovative sound-sculptor Basil Kirchin has passed away. Jazzman Graham Collier has a detailed site that is worth a peruse or two. Jenny Lin is a talented pianist who will be playing out in New York soon. Speaking of New York, the Bahai Center features jazz performances and the 20-piece ConceptualMotion Orchestra will appear there on August 23rd. And finally, a very cool announcement, that Bridge Records will be reissuing rare Library of Congress recordings for the next 10 years.
Somethin of a unique event, Tune(Out))) Side works as follows:
Installation and live performance featuring sound performers playing into transmitters, rather than amplifiers. There is no amplified sound in the listening space, only ambient crowd noise. Attendees use a radio with headphones to hear the simultanous performances on several frequencies. Also features Video Tune(In))), featuring live performances and a selection of archived free103point9 performances, with audio only available through radio receivers.
An article covers the basic methods of turntablist Martin Tetrault.
Avreeayl Ra’s web site is now up and features some good detail on this oft-overlooked drummer.
