"Screwed Anthologies" (as in DJ Screw) & Killick! June 4, 2010
9:00PM - - -
On Tour. June 2010
“Screwed Anthologies”
Improvised music under the influence of DJ Screw.


David Dove (Houston) – trombone, amplified trombone with effects, PA/Screw tracks
Lucas Gorham (Houston) – guitar, lap steel guitar, effects, loops


“Screwed Anthologies” was originally commissioned by labotanica for the exhibit “Screwed Anthologies”:
http://labotanica.org/projects_screwed.html


Trombonist, improvisor, composer, and educator David Dove grew up learning his horn in the public school band program, while at the same time playing electric-bass in punk rock groups. Before he was out of high school, he began a period exploring (formally and informally) a range of musical styles (including classical, jazz, experimental and 6 years in the band Sprawl). In the early 1990’s, he became dedicated to free improvisation, gigging and experimenting with a small group of like-minded Houston musicians (including New Zealander Paul Winstanley and the then-trio Charalambides). A degree of isolation, an eclectic musical background, and a commitment to creativity eventually led him to conceive of a new approach for music education. In 1997, Dove started working at MECA, an inner-city arts community center, where he began to develop this approach. In 2000, Pauline Oliveros (an important mentor) invited him to start a branch of The Deep Listening Institute (DLI) to further his education goals and bring contemporary musicians to Houston. In 2006, DLI Houston became Nameless Sound, an independent, Houston-based organization. Nameless Sound reaches over 1500 young people every year through creative music workshops in public schools, community centers, homeless shelters, and refugee communities. Dove has given performances and workshops all over the US and some internationally (Mexico, Canada, Scotland, Vietnam, Germany). He has collaborated with many of his favorite local/national/international artists (some well known, some less known)[1].


Guitarist, lap steel guitarist, multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter Lucas Gorham first met Dove when he was a teenager in 1999. Lucas was playing guitar in a local ‘rock-en-español’ band. Nurtured on his parents’ record collection and turned on to Cecil Taylor by a hip math teacher, Gorham fit right in with Nameless Sound’s Youth Ensemble. By the time he was 19, Gorham had gained (through Nameless Sound) experience from workshops with some of the premiere names in creative music (including Pauline Oliveros, Joe McPhee, Eugene Chadbourne, Sam Rivers, Leroy Jenkins, and William Parker). Gorham went on to become a key player in Houston’s music scene (both ‘underground’ and ‘above ground’). He fronts (and writes for) Grandfather Child, a hard-rocking, heartfelt, and inspirational soul/gospel/boogie/blues quartet. Strongly affected by his time playing for a charismatic ministry, Gorham calls his band “church music without the religion”. His ecstatic tendencies (and experimental tendencies) are even stronger in his “Sad Gorilla” solo sets, where three guitars (two lap steels), voice, and looping pedals weave a raw-but-soulful web of grooves (and deconstructed grooves), blues, boogie, drone, noise, and improvisation (sometimes done in ‘guerilla’ style public performance). Gorham isn’t chained to his own vision. His wide range and open spirit have made him one of the most active collaborators in Houston’s busy improvisation scene.

Andrew Weathers, Duet for Theremin and Lap Steel June 10, 2010
9:00PM - - -
Price:  $7
Andrew Weathers (b. 1988) is a composer and performer of experimental music. Originally from Chapel Hill, he currently lives in Greensboro, North Carolina where he studies Music Composition at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. His music utilizes acoustic and electronic elements and sits somewhere in between composition and improvisation. Weathers tours relentlessly, performing his music across the United States and in Europe.

Also on the bill: Andrew Colella:
as a first year master’s student in the music technology program at georgia tech, andrew colella is focused on integrating the creative applications of music with the current revolutions in technology. he seeks to expand the methods in which computers interact with music and in turn, how humans interact with computers. andrew completed his undergraduate composition degree at the eastman school of music and has had his music played around the world with performances in italy and japan. his most recent artistic interests have led him to the exploration of the line drawn between surrealism and art that mimics reality, primarily dealing with the computer and its artistic applications.


Duet for Theremin and Lap Steel is Scott Burland (theremin) and Frank Schultz (steel).
Together they create a combination of sounds from two non-fixed-pitch instruments and laptops in an improv environment with a disregard for traditional styles, creating rich textures, swooning collages, and hypnotic pulses.

"Duet for Theremin & Lap Steel weaves the sounds of these unlikely instruments into one sometimes pretty, sometimes scary, always captivating dronescape." Creative Loafing Atlanta 6jan2010

"These sounds are the product of two minds sharing a single headspace and letting the music drive... Here, they collide with the cerebellum in a graceful, slow-motion crash." Chad Radford, Creative Loafing Atlanta

Grouper is the assumed name of Northern Californian artist Liz Harris, and over the last few years she has quickly nudged herself into the underground spotlight with her peculiarly disarming music. Her journey began with the haunting midnight ambience of 'Way Their Crept' released on ex-Deerhoof member Rob Fisk's Free Porcupine Society label in 2005. The record was instantly praised by British site Volcanic Tongue who described it as a 'wildcard late entry for album of the year', and its woozy blend of William Basinski-esque drone and breathy vocals slowly garnered the attention of music fans around the world. What followed over the next few years was a handful of stunning releases, from 'Wide' (again on FPS) to the haunting collaborative recording with Xiu Xiu entitled 'Creepshow'. With each release Liz grew in confidence and refined her unique style, coming to a head with the limited 'Cover the Windows and the Walls' LP on Root Strata which sold out in a matter of weeks. In 2008 she released the album which defined her sound; 'Dragging A Dead Deer Up A Hill' and through cult British imprint Type Records she finally reached the wider audience she deserved. The album achieved an unprecedented amount of critical acclaim, with respected US webzine Pitchfork mentioning it in their top albums of 2008, touting it as 'druggy and sexy and arty and pretty, but never pretentious'. In 2009 she toured the USA in support of Animal Collective (one of the world's biggest alternative acts), released split 7”s with City Center and Pumice and continues to stun audiences worldwide with her truly unique songs.


Brainworlds

As Brainworlds, Atlanta based guitarist Mason Brown works to envelop the listener in sheets of meditative sound and delve deep into the subconscious to examine the hidden relationship between the micro and the macro. The music of Brainworlds flows without regard to time or gravity, floating in the metaphysical realm where mind and universe coalesce.

Give us one day and we'll hand you the tools to build your career in the film industry.

Production Assistant Training Seminar (P.A.T.S.) provides on-location training for entry-level PA's. We'll provide you with a thorough orientation of the film industry. By learning the proper protocols and procedures you will be able to work confidently on any commercial, television or movie set.

> Comprehensive and well structured manual
> Download of 65+ industry standard forms
> Video and PowerPoint Presentation
> Instruction by industry professionals

Course Outline

The first half of the day is our “boot camp” style instruction. Practical, hands-on drills, and demonstrations that will prepare you to show up on your first day of work on a major motion picture and present yourself as the “unforgettable PA.” The skills you learn in the first half of the seminar will allow you to perform at a level of understanding and confidence to get you a ‘call back’ for the second day!
With our innovative guide, examples, and forms we will teach you the following concepts:

HALF DAY

• Your First Day
• Walkie talkie etiquette
• Set safety and protocol

The crown jewel of this seminar is our job search, resume building, and interview techniques session. With P.A.T.S. resume design, we will craft participant’s individual “industry standard” resumes using their skills, education and practical experience. Production resumes are unique and always go to the top of the pile. The advice and techniques received from P.A.T.S., prepare you for the interview, so you not only know what to expect but how to respond.
P.A.T.S. then guides you to where the entry-level jobs are found through online search and network building sites. We will help you understand how to manage the maze of gatekeepers in order to get your resume to the right people.

FULL DAY

KAMAMA / Blue Sabbath Black Fiji / Samuel Fisher June 30, 2010
8:00PM - 12:00AM
Price:  $5
kamama

KAMAMA is Luca Marini (drums/percussion) and Audrey Chen (cello/voice/electronics)

kamama in cherokee means both elephant and butterfly. there is no overlap in meaning other than the supposed resemblance of the long trunk and flapping ears to the proboscis and wings of that insect. this duo loosely embodies elements of this kind of disparate pairing. chen and marini combine the raw energies resultant from and continuously growing out of their respective histories and experiences. since their first encounter early this year in 2010, they have been forming a new language which steadily deepens, evolves, converges and exposes their inherent similarities and striking differences. it is ecstatic music. it is contrary music. and at times, they depart completely from one another as two distinct creatures, but then are drawn back into the fold of an undeniable tenderness and comprehension.

www.myspace.com/audreychen






Following Kamama will be Blue Sabbath Black Fiji, a guitar noise duo from the UK.

SAMUEL FISHER

Samuel Fisher is a young but accomplished electronic musician and artist
from Athens, Georgia, who is currently studying experimental music in the
TIMARA program at Oberlin Conservatory. His compositions bring a
dynamic and meditative collage of textures and events into convergence
on a plane which breathes between electronic synthesis and the musically
discovered sounds of everyday life. Honoring the traditions of electronic
music pioneers like Pauline Oliveros and Dick Robinson, Samuel takes
a highly improvisational approach to his live performances, inviting the
confluences of chaos to create a unique sonic landscape that will only ever
exist in that one moment. Samuel is also finishing work on his first album,
"Life Cycles", which will be available for download later this summer
at www.samuelfisher.net.
