William Parker / Cooper-Moore Reviewed

From the Telegram:

Bassist William Parker and pianist and multi-instrumentalist Cooper-Moore kicked off WCUW-FM’s Fall Jazz Concert Series last Saturday night with a dynamic concert at Razzo Hall, a 190-seat performance space inside Clark University’s Traina Center for the Performing Arts. Both Parker, now in his late 50s, and Cooper-Moore, who’s in his early 60s, have toiled for decades in the creative music movement and are generally regarded as major catalysts in the genre. An outgrowth of the free jazz movement of the 1960s, creative music relies on spontaneous improvisation and music from other cultures as twin inspirations.

Noisefold at REDCAT November 5th

From LA’s REDCAT:

Melding real-time animation and generative electronic sound within the legacy of cybernetics, NoiseFold unleashes a suite of selected movements in its live cinema works nFold 1.0, ALCHIMIA, and Neu_Blooms. Using sensor-activated computer systems and complex audiovisual feedback models, co-founders Cory Metcalf and David Stout synthesize a mesmerizing array of bio-mimetic visual forms that generate sound, celebrating the evolution of visual music as a form of instrumental play with semiautonomous systems. From subtle lifelike emanations to roiling upheavals of sound and light, their audiovisual events are at once familiar, mysterious, and strange. The result is a powerful synaesthetic experience where noise, music and image interact on a symphonic scale.
