Eyedrum art and music gallery is proud to present “I’ll Die High,” a solo show of work by the Atlanta artist Nick Madden.

I’ll Die High explores themes of physicality, mechanics, and humor in the face of certain death. Madden’s parents are battling life-threatening diseases: cancer and Alzheimer’s. Madden makes use of a variety of media as he takes us through his experience of slowly losing the parents he knew, either through the physical deterioration of the body, or of the slow breakdown of a mind, and makes us acutely aware of the vulnerability and fleeting nature of life and consciousness. He uses art to make sense of the past and a future, acutely aware of the moment before him. Treating the body as a machine that inevitably breaks down and dies, Madden copes with his parents’ conditions by creating playful and touching kinetic and interactive sculptures that awaken with the audience’s participation. Push, pull, and crank each piece to make it come to life in an examination of the bodily changes that Madden sees in his parents.

Nick Madden is an artist and art teacher from Atlanta. He is a recent Hambidge Fellow and a resident of The Creatives Project. Nick has shown work in galleries across the city. I’ll Die High is Madden’s second solo show. Learn more about Nick Madden here:

Christian Hänggi February 27, 2015
8:00PM - 9:30PM
Price:  Donations appreciated @$8
Swiss critic, scholar and lecturer Christian Hänggi will present at Eyedrum, 88 Forsyth Street, Atlanta, GA 30303, a partially improvised musical lecture on the matter of music, in the novels of Thomas Pynchon.

Pynchon is renowned for output including V (1963), Gravity's Rainbow (1973), Mason & Dixon (1997), and Bleeding Edge (2013), among many others. For decades he has now interleaved within his literary output, the countercultural sounds of America's musical vernacular. Reporting and even reworking the in-theory-well-known lyrics of broadcast radio, with unannounced and biting subterfuge, Pynchon's characters perform a sort of ongoing remix of the house band in our head -- guitar riffs alternately errant, flat, or distinctive.

Christian Hänggi, the presenter, is a doctoral candidate in Zurich, and himself lightly infamous for his attentive accounting of the late Karlheinz Stockhausen, very specifically on the question of the 9/11 attacks in the US. Stockhausen, the great electronic composer, had described these attacks in Germany -- in public and to great public distress -- as a manner of gesamtkunstwerk, or total work of art.

Hänggi has now agreed to present his up-to-the-minute work on the topic of Pynchon: one of America's most resiliently disillusioned authors.

The lecture with its musical accompaniment, is properly entitled

"The Harmonica, the Kazoo, and the Saxophone: Pynchon’s Lessons in Organology."
