Don Giovanni Record Release/Listening Party Apositsia Orchestra

8:00 PM20:00

Don Giovanni Record Release/Listening Party Apositsia Orchestra

Please join us to celebrate the release of the new album by Apositsia Orchestra - "Spaceship Earth" on Don Giovanni Records. A 13 person improvisational orchestra featuring Famoudou Don Moye, Baba Sissoko, Peter Stampfel, Henry Kaiser, Dok Gregory and more.
This will be an evening of live performances from projects by orchestra members Peter Stampfel (Atomic Meta Pagans/Holy Modal Rounders/The Fugs)and Dok Gregory (Plan 23/Byzantine Art Punk Ensemble/Atomic Meta Pagans) with an early and late album listening session. CD's will be available.


8pm - 9pm - album listening
9pm - 11pm - live performances:
Peter Stampfel w/ fellow Atomic Meta Pagans member Sam Werbalowsky
Principle String Quartet (Bradford Reed/Dok Gregory/Jeremy Slater)
11pm - 12am - album listening

"As with any improvisation and in particular with larger groups the possibility exists for it to be a total mess - un organized combinations of ideas or musicians competing with each other to be heard. This album is a testament to the possibility of the opposite - 13 musicians of diverse backgrounds and styles working together in total harmony to create a real time composition with incredible focus and restraint. Each musician is free to create their own part but gives over control of when to play and the dynamics of their part to the conductor. Famoudou Don Moye as conductor (as well as musician) is engaged in the same improvisational dance as the rest of the musicians, creating the score to the composition as it unfolds and so co creating the composition with the band. The resulting blend - elements of african/american/european folk with experimental/electronic/avant garde, jazz, classical and rock - is a true kind of world music naturally derived un sanitized and without pretense."

●MAGIC TUBER STRINGBAND
Magic Tuber Stringband is an experimental old-time-related duo from Durham, NC comprised of Courtney Werner on fiddle and Evan Morgan on guitar and banjo. The duo forges links between the dialects of traditional tunes and freak-folk improvisations. MTSB will release their debut record "Wayward Airs for Earthbound Vagrants" in July 2019 on Houston-based label Blue Hole Recordings. The record swings back and forth across the boundaries between traditional and exploratory song forms, often within the space of a song. Past collaborations between Werner and Morgan include the experimental short film LOST CHILD REEL in which Werner appears playing the Stripling Brothers' "Lost Child" and the the 16mm multi-projector performance PERFORMANCE FOR FIDDLE AND PROJECTORS which imagines a new form of musicological documentary rooted in live performance. Morgan's debut solo guitar record "Between the World and Small Things" was released on Blue Hole in 2018. Along with his solo work, Morgan has also performed with the old-time group The Fossil Lickers and also works within the world of experimental film. Werner has worked around the country and the world in the fields of wildlife rehabilitation and conservation.

Open: 8:30pm~

●Miyama McQueen-Tokita (Koto)

Miyama is a koto and bass koto player who is constantly in search for her own style that fuses ancient traditions with new ideas that are relevant to the music and people of the present day. She performs contemporary works, improvisation and original music, and in addition to performing solo, Miyama regularly plays with such artists as Naoki Kita (vln), Tetsu Saitoh (cb), Bruce Huebner (shakuhachi), Masao Tajima (cb) and Keiki Midorikawa (vc). As her free expressive style gained reputation with a wide audience, she began performing often with artists coming from all around the globe to perform in Japan. She has been invited to perform overseas as a soloist in festivals such as the Powell Street Festival in Canada, Tokyo Jazz Festival, Melbourne International Arts Festival and Mapping Melbourne. Ensembles she has performed as a guest soloist include the Vancouver Intercultural Orchestra, the Australian Art Orchestra and the Japan Philharmonic Orchestra. In recent years she has been putting energy into improvisation and collaborating with young composers from various countries, looking to create music for the koto in a style and soundscape that has never before been explored. In 2015 and 2017 she took part in IMPULS Academy & Festival held in Graz, Austria, as a bass koto performer, where she performed improvisation, and premiered many new works written for bass koto.

●Jarvis Earnshaw (Sitar)

Born in London 1982, Jarvis Earnshaw spent most of his childhood in Japan, releasing his debut album from Slam Records at the age of 15; he graduated Bunka Gakuin Art School in Tokyo, then went on to study sitar in India, and is a graduate of Pratt Institute in New York. His musical career as well as his Art career has been recognized worldwide, having solo exhibitions, residencies and performances throughout the world, including Fuji Rock Festival, Europe, India and across America to Lincoln Center New York. His work is often described as a cinematic experience, utilizing acoustic guitar, sitar, modified audio cassette tape loops and open reel tapes; provoking memories of past and beyond, warm and rich as does the noise from a record needle touching an LP; at times violently explosive yet soothing and irresistible. Currently based in Brooklyn, New York, he has been engaged in numerous projects throughout the Art and Music scenes including a recent performance at the Bruno Walter Auditorium at Lincoln Center and live collaborations with: New-Wave violinist Walter Steding, beatnik poet Anne Waldman, artist Kenny Scharf, Daniel Carter, Amazing Amy the contortionist, Trevor Dunn (Mr.Bungle / Fantomas / Melvins), Seiichi Yamamoto (Boredoms/PARA), Shinji Masuko (DMBQ), Tamio Shiraishi (Fushitsusha), has been featured on recordings by DJ Quietstorm, Yoshitake EXPE and has been commissioned by the National Audubon Society to create a soundtrack for the short film "Shorebirds Flock to Yellow Sea". He contributes as musical director for Rumi Missabu of the legendary 1960's psychedelia troupe The Cockettes, and also played bass in the punk band QUESTION w/ singer Saira Huff (Bastard Noise, Detestation) which released their first full length LP through US label Fashionable Idiots. Since 2016 he has held a residency at Flowers For All Occasions Gallery in Brooklyn NY, collaborating with different artists monthly, including: Trevor Dunn, Elias Stemeseder, Sean Ali, Seth Faergolzia, etc. His current projects include: HARBINGER a trio with Daniel Carter (reeds, horn & flute) & Zach Swanson (contrabass), debut album recorded by Martin Bisi at BC Studios Brooklyn scheduled for release March 2019 and also a trio with Mike Green (Mezzanine Swimmers) on electronics & Devin Brahja Waldman (GodSpeedYou!BlackEmperor) on saxophone. His photographs have been featured as a 7page spread in Asahi Camera Magazine, has had a solo exhibition at the New York Public Library Thompkin Sq. branch in 2013 and his self published zines: “Nowhere Now Here vol.0” and “Nowhere Now Here vol.9” have recently been added to the New York Public Library permanent collection at Lincoln Center. He has also been commissioned by clothing companies such as BEAMS International and DoARaT for designs and continuously strives to broaden his horizon as an artist. "Earnshaw creates a glinting ambience, with the bent notes of the sitar suggesting a distant kinship to the blues guitar." -John Sharpe (New York City Jazz Record)

Floating Incantations

An evening of Live Chill Out Music, Avant Garde, Exotica, Lounge, Electronica and video Projections by three solo artists.
Featuring Lauren Lee, Damien Olsen and Jeremy Slater.


Lauren Lee :


A native of the St. Louis (MO) metropolitan area, her foray into creative music began as a teenager in the St. Louis Symphony Chorus, an experience that lead her on a wild goose chase of sorts to find her own sound in the adventurous music scene as a young innovator in a special brand of improvisation she calls “Vocal Instrumentalism”. Likened to female jazz pioneers that came before her like Carla Bley and Jen Shyu, Lee’s music has been described as, “equal parts hip jazz, avant adventure, and… something completely different” (John Pietaro, Dissident Arts). Her work intentionally inhabits this place of “between”, and in Lee’s case, the “between” is nestled between where jazz has been and where jazz is going. Her work is praised for both her creative takes on jazz standards and her adventurous yet accessible original music and has performed across North and South America, Europe, and Asia as both a bandleader and sidewoman.






Damien Olsen:

Musician and Visual Artist .


Besides of leading an accomplished life long career in visual arts that features Sculpture, Painting and Photography Damien Olsen works in a wide range of electronic music genres; from Avant Jazz to Dance and Lounge music. Studied Composition and Jazz Guitar with Finnish Composer Raoul Bjorkenheim .
Scored live soundtracks for the last two years at Film Noire Cinema in Greenpoint Brooklyn. He has performed in most venues of The City of Florianopolis and Bahia ( Brazil ) and Downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn and recorded and produced a significant discography that involves more than 20 tittles. Since the early 70s Piano and Guitar are his main instruments and by the middle 90s he started playing bass guitar and electronic instruments ( various synthesizers, samplers, loopers and computers )

Synesthesia x Eric Benoit - Birthday Show / Party

Another journey around the sun concluded, and this one was particularly wild..... join me as I turn 25 and help me embrace my impending quarter-life crisis :~)

Birthday Party / Show -- Sunday August 4th, $10 entry, 7pm-late

I WILL BE PLAYING ONLY NEW UNRELEASED MUSIC from my upcoming 3rd LP "Jackals of the East Side" - you don't wanna miss it

WILL FEATURE LOTS OF ART AND VIDEO AND SHIT FROM GOOD FRIENDS!!

Full lineup TBA

Artist Bios:

MUSIC:

ERIC BENOIT
Patriarchy, misogyny, nationalism, desperation… you know what Eric Benoit’s talking about, and he doesn’t even mention Donald Trump by name.

With the upcoming release of his third LP "Jackals of the East Side," Benoit has broadened his scope beyond the folk-electronic confessional stylings of previous releases.

Though the majority of the album takes place in NYC, it is about more than a single city. It’s a testament to those marginalized communities working together to bring down those in power around the world.

"Jackals" is Benoit’s most significant step yet in a career defined by idiosyncratic, avant-garde, and depressing yet hopeful experimental music. Though it retains the electronic edge of earlier releases, it also uses traditional rock instrumentation to tell the story of America from the perspective of a kid just trying to figure out how to be good to people and make the world a better place.

YOLANDA WATSON
Yolanda is a singer-songwriter from Brooklyn, NY, and that's all she gave me (Eric) to write about her. She's fucking good though for real don't miss her ;)

CAT FUGUE:
somewhere between a thousand short circuits and the void

VISUALS:

BILL SCHAEFER
Bill Schaefer has no idea what he's doing. As a conceptual artist, he's only tied down to ideas, not mediums. Known for his magazine "TEXTURES", his internet performance art, visual art, and textiles, this is his first time sharing his video/visual art, mix of internet video bricolage and analog visuals. You can check out more of his work at http://wts.fyi or @wtsfyi.

●DAFNA NAPHTALI & HANS TAMMEN

Dafna Naphtali - electronics, voice http://dafna.info
Hans Tammen - buchla https://tammen.org

In their active collaboration since 1998, the duo of Dafna Naphtali and Hans Tammen probes and playfully undermines the overlap of various elements of their technical and aesthetic practices. With Naphtali's interactive processed sound/noise system and 4-octave vocal range, and Tammen's mechanical and energetic manipulations of his analog synthesizer, the duo sets out on a crazed collision course of the acoustic and the electronic – all along the route paying homage (in a twirl of the radio dial) to music concrete, free jazz and European improvised music, as well as the contemporary classical and all manner of non-Western musics.

NOT AN Addict presents An Evening with M. Woods

Not an Addict is an ongoing series of events examining experimental as it pertains to the thematics of the addiction curated by Devon Narine-Singh, filmmaker and artist in recovery. Tonight's evening welcomes filmmaker M.Woods on his US tour to present several works and share his process of how's experience with addiction has shaped him and his work.

M. Woods is a American-Latinx media terrorist working in avant-garde film, video art, photography, collage, sound design, and performance. Woods' work chronicles the spread of the Numb Spiral, the results of a digital sickness that manifests itself in the codification and symbolic negation of being. His work is a fashioned attack against the institutional structures of white supremacy and the alpha male fantasy. The Numb Spiral is the point at which consciousness negates being, and a cruel illusion maintains control of the flailing senses. What begins as apathy, surreptitiously devolves into solipsism and nihilism, until the infected succumbs to the perception of total illusion. The Digital Sickness is the evil at the heart of mediated representation, and in tandem with spectacle and the negation of the simulacra, the Digital Sickness marches onwards towards the eradication of the real and the propagation of its double.

Deranged Presents (2): The light of the dialogue, Rrose Present

deranged presents (2): The light of the dialogue, Rrose Present

Rrose Present is a Artist of Experimental Moving Images from Barcelona, formed in Philosophy, Fine Art and Audiovisual studies. She writes with light her "Visual Thought Notes" in which she investigates different areas of the image in its formal and dialogical relationship.

As the brain processes memories with images, Rrose processes with these her personal world, she digests (with images) the images that she receive from the neural network of the global brain and dialogue with the light of other authors:

Personal works, dialogue of light with herself
Political works, dialogues with the light of the world
Dialogues with other authors (Dan Barnett)

La luz del dialogo, Rrose Present

Rrose Present es una Artista visual de Barcelona, formada en Filosofía, Arte, audiovisuales...
Escribe con luz sus “apuntes de pensamiento visual” en los que investiga distintos ámbitos de la imagen en su relación formal y dialógica.
Tal y como el cerebro procesa su memoria con imágenes, Rrose procesa con estas su mundo más personal, digiere (con imágenes) las imágenes que recibe de la red neuronal del cerebro global y dialoga con la luz de otros autores.

En esta sesión presentamos estas lineas principales de su trabajo.
Trabajos personales, diálogos de luz con su mundo personal
Trabajos políticos, diálogos con la luz del mundo
Dialogos con otros autores (Dan Barnett)

Personal work:
(4'48")Tempesta a les Fonts d'una memòria, 2015
(15'56") Blood Roots, 2019
(7'7") TEXTures d'un camí, 2016
(3'16") TRIPTIC, Exit to, 2015

(4'39") Codes of... senses II, 2014
(3'30") Origen del mundo

Dialogue filmed:
4' 35" Horizon of Meaning

"Rose's films are precisely honest. Their power derives from the juxtaposition of crisply evocative rhythms and imagery that is both personal and deep. The overall form of many of them is to begin the entertainment of thinking in one direction and then shift direction to carve a precise shape in thought. The levels of introspection this creates are like the stages in discourse.The complexity of the relationship between the direction of thought and the rhythms that propel it are wonderful." -Daniel Barnett

deranged presents (1)

Raps & Chants 1 with John Broderick - Saul Levine
Science Without Substance - Dan Barnett (U.S. Premier)

Doors Open at 8pm
Films Start at 830pm Sharp!

in lieu of admission written responses to the films will be collected post screening

questions/concerns/comments: derangedpresents@gmail.com


Notes for SWOS NYC screen

Science Without Substance may be one film in a series of experiments in the construction of a specific kind of musical/linguistic form. At first it was a trilogy, then it became a tetrology then a pentology; and it may well go further. Or, for that matter, it may well wind up being only one film.
Or none.

As of the moment the Films in Progress are titled:
Prelude: The Morass
Science Without Substance
Substance Without Science
Either or Neither Part 1 (Either)
Either or Neither Part 2( Neither)

So this screening, while it is a U.S. Premier (as these things get touted) it will probably never be repeated. At least in this form. Rather than thinking of this as a work-of-art-to-be it would be much more appropriate to think of this as the first (US) iteration in a series of ever morphing language experiments, that will hopefully spawn intermodal dialogues (as with rRose’s film “Horizons of Meaning”).

As of the moment all five films are in various stages of completion, the work for this evening is the most “finished” but since my goal is to achieve the kind of balance that I think of as “omnivalent” I intend to attempt polishing this potentially 7 or 8 hour long, 5 piece work, into one single form, containing however many statements that survive the process. Therefore I have to think that the shape that this evening’s film is in will have to change, subtly or dramatically, for all the films to fit solidly and precisely into one form.

The project began in the 1980’s as an idea about an impossible communications situation: A Wind of cognitive dissonance has arisen and blows the meaning right out of spoken words, forcing our hapless band of the lost to revert to blink speech, along with scavenged written records of the past. The implications of this state turn out to be grand. Or maybe not…you judge.

In its original form the project won a National Endowment for the Arts grant under the working title: The Marijuana Wind. But I quickly realized that the project was far over my head technically. (So I used the grant money to finish another film (The Chinese Typewriter).

It is a difficult work, both perceptually and conceptually, as all of my more advanced films have been. But of all venues, I have hopes that the staunch and avid viewers of Brooklyn will be up to the task…and will be vocal in their reactions.

So perceptive or ignorant, positive or negative, all feedback is welcome.


A note on this version of the film:


Since I have known from the start that this would doubtless be a many years long project, I put together this cut for a few friends just to get reactions and so I spent very little time on the tail credits - - problematic to say the least since I had forgotten the identities of many of the contributors, especially sound. However this leaves one huge gap, and really does nothing to explain any of the various stimuli for the work.

There was the early idea, born in the 1980’s when Wrick Wolff recorded Alan Bern playing my re-composition of a Mozart Piano Sonata, and I filmed the early scenes of Rosemary Charlesworth flying and Levine and Broderick horsing around.

The second stimulus came many years later when Wrick Wolff sent me a disc of his new sound piece “Dichtung und Wahrheit”. It’s structure was so simultaneously tight as a drum and loose as a goose that I felt another kind of wind, a wind of conceptual refreshment. I then began to listen with ever more attention to other of his sound pieces - Krem de la Kramer, Capish, and others.

At that point I had pretty much given up filmmaking because I hated the editing software available at the time and I was deep into exploring verbal descriptions of the potential of cinema. When a friend insisted I try Apple’s new FInal Cut (FCPX) I was instantly excited by the potential. At the same time I moved and built a much enlarged studio and with it the ability to digitize this old footage. And I begin to play.

But in all of this what seems to get lost is my debt to Wrick not only for his ideas but also allowing me to add yet more chaos to his, by cannibalizing, murdering really, his work. He is yet an even more shadowy figure on the a-g film scene, and as the composer for the late Phil Solomon’s American Falls, somehow slipped beneath the radar again.

I don’t think Wrick is as comfortable beneath the radar as I am, so I truly want his star to shine as you listen to this film.

Many Thanks
Dan Barnett

Imaging Her Diaspora, curated by Morrison Gong
May
30
7:30 PM19:30

Imaging Her Diaspora, curated by Morrison Gong

Featuring works by Lana Lin, Laure Hocine, Lili White, Caroline Key, Eva Lia Pedriglieri, Utsa Hazarika

 

Synesthesia is pleased to present Imaging Her Diaspora, a screening curated by Morrison Gong. Imaging Her Diaspora presents a selection of films and videos made by women filmmakers that revolves around ethnography, nostalgia, and personal memories.

 

“The works included in the program were made over the past 20 years, by contemporary female artists representing several generations. Their practices focus on discourses of nationalities, gender and cultural landscape. Monologues, interviews, collaged narratives or family tape recordings are used in various personal and provocative ways. The audio, together with the visual, investigates artists’ relationships with their nuclear families, political rhetoric on immigration, as well as impacts of wars, displacements and shifting languages.

 

Diaspora, according to definition, is a scattered population whose origin lies in a separate geographic locale. Blending approaches of documentary and fiction, the images act as conduits for cultural connections, linguistic memories and ethnographic surveys, across the context of today’s political environment. “  -- MG

 

 

Program will include:

A Long Ride for Me and an Even Longer One For This 4 Years Old (2019, 2 min), video installation, Laure Hocine

Subtexts in Utopia: The Dali Change (2019, 25 min), HD video, color, Utsa Hazarika

Sailing to Byzantium (2007, 12 min), HD video, color, Lili White

Baile con Mi Madre (2019, 8 min), HD video, color, Eva Lia Pedriglieri

Speech Memory (2007, 23 min), 16mm to digital, color, Caroline Key

and the India China Institute at The New School. Her art and academic research has been

published in Ethnos: Journal of Anthropology, Trans Asia Photography Review and The

Caravan.

 

Laure Hocine is a French artist based in New York. Her works are constituted of small gestures disseminated mostly throughout the web area. For she founds the Internet to have malleable scale, less physically demanding, just the strength of your finger can introduce spaces that can come closer to the infinitely small and big within the same frame. She feels involved in this place where it does not rise nor set and rise and set continuously and forever. Where your geographical position is overrun, where the stretch of your mind through the pressing of the keyboard, through the scrolling of your eyes propels you into others.

Caroline Key is a Korean-American filmmaker and artist currently based in Brooklyn, New York. She received her MFA in Film/Video from the California Institute of the Arts and her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Caroline was a Fulbright Research Fellow in South Korea in 2010 and a fellow at the Whitney Independent Study Program in 2012. Her works have shown internationally, including the Arsenal Cinema in Berlin, the Smithsonian Hirshhorn Museum, the Seoul Independent Film Festival, and the Margaret Mead Film & Video Festival. Her feature film, Grace Period, premiered at the New Museum in May 2015.

Lana Lin is a filmmaker, artist, and writer based in New York. Her experimental films and multi-disciplinary projects (as Lin + Lam) have been shown at the Museum of Modern Art, Stedelijk Museum, Oberhausen Film Festival, Busan Bienniale, and Taiwan International Documentary Film Festival. She has received awards from the New York State Council on the Arts, New York Foundation for the Arts, and the Jerome Foundation, and has been a fellow at the MacDowell Colony, Civitella Ranieri, and the Vera List Center for Art and Politics. Lin teaches in the School of Media Studies at The New School, New York and is the author of Freud’s Jaw and Other Lost Objects: Fractured Subjectivity in the Face of Cancer. She has recently completed The Cancer Journals Revisited, a feature length non-fiction film inspired by poet Audre Lorde’s 1980 memoir, and is embarking on a new project supported by The New School’s India China Institute that is sited at the contested border between the two most populous countries in the world.

Eva Lia Pedriglieri is an interdisciplinary artist based in New York City but frequently traveling back to her native South Florida. Her work deals with themes of multiculturalism, family, and identity. She is interested in reimagining socialization and bonding practices rooted in culturally specific traditions as an artistic studio practice. She works with contemporary mediums such as performance and video to create temporal, experiential and interactive work, as well as more traditional painting and drawing techniques. She currently attends The New School in NYC, working towards dual degrees in Fine Arts at Parsons the New School for Design and Culture & Media Studies at Eugene Lang the New School for Liberal Arts.

Lili White works across sculpture, painting, graphics and film, laying impressions, based on personal and collective dreams. Delving into liminal space, her work describes the inter- connectedness and elusiveness of living change, found under the surface of things. Her films connect imagery tangentially, forming dream-like logic, presenting a holistic view of the

chosen theme. They draw from projections visualized in humanity’s mental visions, that

belonging to the complex movements of spirit. She has delivered lecture at the College Art Association, and presented her film “FOOL’s GOLD: CALIFORNIA ROADTRIP” at New York Public Library, which received a NYSCA finishing funds award. From 2012 to 2015 she served as an elected Board Member to Millennium Film Workshop, and was chairperson of the Archive Committee, which eventually sold to NY’s MoMA Museum. In 2010 she founded ANOTHER EXPERIMENT by WOMEN FILM FESTIVAL in NYC, (http://axwonline.com) which screens experimental film by women (and some men) at Anthology Film Archives, through NEW FILMMAKERS NY.
