The concept is to have four exciting, powerful, new or experiment, avant-goups or solo performers each from different musical genres. Each group or soloist is strictly limited to 30 minutes of performance time.
8pm Merrill Clark – performing world premiers of his compositions – Outlands (the Imaginary Jam with Bruce) – Give a Human something Bright and Shiny – Where the Big Kids Play. Mr. Clark’s compositions have been performed throughout the United States, Europe and Brazil, and he has been awarded many honors, including the 1972 Winner in Composition of the American College Jazz Festival which resulted in his conducting a concert of his works at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC, in 1973. He has written many works in a wide variety of genres, from unaccompanied solo works like to large scale orchestral works, including a musical theater piece, two bass concertos, a viola concerto and many chamber works. Mr. Clark has compiled a double CD of chamber music for wind instruments titled, Heart Songs and Science Projects, and will soon release Twisted Bits of Sound for Amplified String Quintet and Percussion. Brenda Vincent (electric violin) Jason Hwang (electric violin) Joel Rudin (electric viola) Matt Goeke (electric cello) Tia Vincent-Clark (electric guitar and vocals) Merrill Clark (electric contra bass) Annette Aguilar (percussion and conductor)
9pm Valerie Kuehne – Cellist and performance artist Valerie Kuehne is a cross-pollinated work of chaos fusing together music, performance art, narrative, and experimental curation. After moving to New York to study Philosophy at The New School, Ms. Kuehne has systematically bifurcated her time between touring the planet, performing in as many unexpected settings as possible, and building a community for experimental music and performance art in New York. Ms. Kuehne’s work operates under principles of surprise, and investigates obsession, comedy, decay, forensic pathology, sex, hypnogogia, viscera, death. She created and composed for the ensemble Dream Zoo and is one third of the improvised music trio Prehistoric Horse.
10pm Chris Pitsiokos (sax, electronics) Weasel Walter (drums) Ron Anderson (guitar) – Weasel Walter and Ron Anderson are both cornerstones of the New York avant-music scene. Since the early nineties, these improvisers and composers have lived a parallel musical existence: Weasel with his band The Flying Luttenbachers and Ron with The Molecules and PAK. Over the last 30 years they have performed with a long list of some of the most creative musicians on the planet and they collectively appear on nearly 200 commercial releases. This night they will be joined by relative newcomer Chris Pitsiokos who has had an incredibly active performance schedule in the last 18 months. Recently, the trio was in the studio recording a new CD that is scheduled for release in July on Eleatic Records and will be available at the performance.
11pm Les Rhinoceros – formed in 2008 by bassist and composer Michael Coltun. a trio consisting of bass, guitar, and drums. Les Rhinocéros was the first release in Tzadik’s new spotlight series – a series focusing on “exemplary young bands with great dedication, passion, talent and imagination.” The series came to life after executive producer John Zorn heard Les Rhinocéros and knew he wanted the band as part of the “Tzadik Family”. Thus the Spotlight Series was born as a means to release this album and, going forward, other albums by exceptional young artists handpicked by Zorn.”
