From Detroit’s Trinospheres:

Thursday, Sept 12: Bob Marsh, Jones-Behnke Syndication

A native Detroiter with a BFA in sculpture from Wayne State, Bob Marsh is best known as an multi-instrumentalist working at the edge of experimental music, improvisation and art’s intersection with other disciplines. He will be performing a Detroit-specific, work-in-progress at Trinosophes, which he describes:

“In this performance I try to find meaning in the complex swirl of emotions, thoughts, impulses that range from deeply sad to burning rage evoked by seeing the photographs of Philip Jarmain. Using a ground cloth I painted on the streets of Detroit 25 years ago, I have created a kind of urban camouflage suit, including a cape and other clothing articles. This suit produces a desolate sound that I imagine could be heard blowing across the vast vacant areas of Detroit. Through movement, text, singing, and an audio collage, against the backdrop of mural sized photographs of the once stately and regal buildings of decaying Detroit, I try to sort through the isms that ate the heart out of the city of my birth and artistic growth. Apart from the home of my childhood, which looks much the same, except for the requisite burglar bars, most of the buildings in which the meaningful experiences of my life and creative growth took place have disappeared, have been erased, plowed down, paved over or left as tracts of plain dirt. When this personal loss is multiplied hundreds of thousands of times over, the destruction becomes biblically epic and enormous.”

Opening the show is the new improvised chamber music duo, Jones-Behnke Syndication, featuring Molly Jones (flute) and Patrick Behnke (Fender Rhodes/piano). They did an impromptu session at Trinosophes a few weeks ago (just to rehearse), and it was stellar.
