ECHOI Ensemble
​Sarah Hennies, Project Director

In the second concert of our 2018/19 concert season, MEC combines two of its recent passions: our ongoing investigation into the life and work of the late, great Julius Eastman, and the introducing of important young composers to our programming. In this case, our program focuses on two groundbreaking works looking LGBTQ issues directly in the eye: Julius Eastman’s powerful and courageous Gay Guerrilla and Sarah Hennies unique and profoundly moving Contralto.

FOOM & FOAM duo at Café Fixe
Tuesday, January 8, 2019
Non-Event Presents
Our January Experimental Coffee House
featuring
FOOM & FOAM
Café Fixe
1642 Beacon Street (Washington Square)
Brookline, MA
7 p.m. /$5
Rare performance by two of New England’s more intrepid and strange musical figures, FOOM (turntables) and (Arkm) Foam (tapes, electronics, odd ‘n’ ends), whose languid music recalls the work of classic, early L.A.F.M.S. “By using previously recorded sounds as source, [Foom & Foam] eradicate both the ability and the necessity of trying to identify the instruments or objects producing the noise here. These are just sounds, freed from their original sonic context by the initial act of recording, now existing as naught-but-signals, to be interpreted by our brains as they see fit to interpret them.” {Byron Coley]
