Coming to The Windup Space:

Show: Unsystematic Notation
a solo exhibition and concerts of work by Will Redman
Exhibition date: January 9 – February 27, 2013
Concert dates: January 9 and 23, February 13 and 27
The Windup Space, 12 West North Ave. Baltimore, MD 21201 ph:410-244-8855

Baltimore, MD, December 27, 2012 – From January 9 to February 27, 2013, The Windup Space and Friends Records present Show: Unsystematic Notation, a solo exhibition of graphic scores (handmade graphically intense sheet music) by Will Redman, and a series of chamber music concerts featuring Microkingdom, X|i|O, David Smooke, Umbilicus, and Talk Show. Redman works in black ink and collage, creating scores that challenge the interpreters to invent meanings for his unsystematic notation. The exhibition will include scores such as Book (2006), a 98 page composition using radical extensions of conventional music notation; and Scroll (2010), an eight foot long page of music using invented notation; and Deck (2012), a set of 52 card size modular compositions. Friends Records will mark the occasion with a tape of Redman’s work and limited edition prints of Book.

Four concerts in January and February will focus on Baltimore-based composers performing their own compositions. Each concert will feature interpretations of Redman’s scores by his band Microkingdom, as well as performances by special guests. The first concert and opening of the exhibition on January 9 will feature X|i|O, the duo of Liz Meredith (viola, violin, electronics) and MIck Ricereto (clarinet). X|i|O will play their own fascinating graphic scores. All concerts are 7-9pm at The Windup Space.

Will Guthrie
Will Guthrie is an Australian drummer / percussionist living in Nantes, France. He improvises and records using various combinations of drums, percussion, objects, junk, amplification and electronics. His bands include minimalist/maximalist free jazz trio THE AMES ROOM, in appalachian mutant folk duo ELWOOD & GUTHRIE, as well as the electro/acoustic improvised/composed ensemble THYMOLPHTHALEIN; his regular collaborators past and present include Jean-Luc Guionnet, Clayton Thomas, Scott Stroud, Jérôme Noetinger, Anthony Pateras, Erell Latimier, Matthew Earle, Adam Sussmann, Ferran Fages, Jean-Philippe Gross, Greg Kingston, Helmut Schafer, Keith Rowe, Ren Walters, Mark Simmonds and Snuff Puppetts.

Dominic Lash
One of the best respected improvisers of his generation, currently resident in Bristol. He’s played with John Butcher, Evan Parker, Chris Corsano, Tony Conrad, Steve Reid, Angharrad Davies, Rhodri Davies, etc etc etc… This will be his first solo performance in Bristol. Known equally for firey free jazz and modern-composition inspired reductionism – he could be in either/both modes on the night. “His range is just about unrivalled”, The Watchful Ear; “explosive bass-strumming”, The Guardian; “dextrous bass playing teems with energy”, Nightshift.

Seth Cooke
Surprisingly new arrival in Bristol given his history with Hunting Lodge and Defibrillators. This BtB janitor’s weapon of choice (for the next year, at least) when improvising is a stainless steel waste disposal sink, a found object played with other found objects, feedback or deployed for resonance. Besides the above, Cooke’s studio creations involve found materials, field recording and processes and are available via his website:
