We will be miking this thing!

Double-header of new/experimental classical music by Atlanta locals Bent Frequency hosting New York-based Amp.

Bent Frequency

Bent Frequency brings the avant-garde music tradition to life in Atlanta through adventurous programming, the promotion of New Music, and a creative synthesis of music and media. Our vision is to redefine the traditional music experience - ushering it from the strict formality of the concert hall into the fresh air of contemporary artistic expression and experimentation.

AMP

Amp is a new music group based in New York City that grapples with experimental, electroacoustic, gestural, or situational compositional trends in the context (for the perspective) of a broader musical modernism. Without fixed ensemble, we draw from the rich new music scene in New York to organically develop a few concerts each year, each usually featuring a particular composer or nexus of compositions. More info at www.ampmusic.org.

Smoking Spore / The Subliminator November 9, 2010

Price:  $5
SMOKING SPORE
smokingspore
"Thick psychedelia, sweet solos, and awesome guitar sounds" - Decibel Magazine
"These guys are tight like spandex." - Planet Fuzz
"A strong whiff of Hendrix and Satriani" - Houston Press
"Goes way farther than most so-called exploratory bands would!" - Psychatrone Rhonedakk
"Smoking Spore score very high on the psychedelic rock meter" - Concrete Web

Smoking Spore is completely improvisational, which draws focus to the live act. It is a different performance every night. Psychedelic videos edited by one of the band members are aired during the performance via projector. The members are DIY electronics wizards, using unique effects developed by the band themselves. It is a four-piece act featuring a drummer, bassist, and two guitar players, one of whom switches back and forth between guitar and a restored 1968 Wurlitzer organ.

Film Love: Mauricio Kagel's Two-Man Orchestra November 11, 2010
8:00PM - - -
Price:  $5
FILM LOVE presents

Mauricio Kagel:
Film Music, Music Performance, Performance Film

Program Two: Two-Man Orchestra



Musician as actor, composer as filmmaker, film as concert – the works of Mauricio Kagel constantly upend conventions and expectations. Often, his compositions are actually theater pieces, except played by virtuoso musicians in a concert hall rather than actors in a theater. He instructed musicians to play guitars with fan blades and coffee mills, and constructed giant instruments in which musicians were encased. In addition to creating a vast compositional output, Kagel doubled as a film director, with typically mindblowing results.

PROGRAM TWO
Program Two is an exceedingly rare screening of Kagel’s film Two-Man Orchestra. Two musicians are inserted into Kagel’s specially built one-man-band setups (of over 250 instruments!) which they control with their fingers, feet, legs, heads and any other possible way. Trapped in these enormous, overgrown constructions and dealing with their unpredictable malfunctions, the performers evoke everything from Charlie Chaplin to circus music to complete atonality in a virtuoso physical and musical feat.

PROGRAM:
Zwei-Mann-Orchester (Two-Man Orchestra) (film, 1973, 71 minutes)

Mauricio Kagel: Film Music, Music Performance, Performance Film is a Film Love event. The Film Love series provides access to rare but important films, and seeks to increase awareness of the rich history of experimental and avant-garde film. The series is curated and hosted by Andy Ditzler for Frequent Small Meals. Film Love was voted Best Film Series in Atlanta by the critics of Creative Loafing in 2006, and appears in Atlanta Magazine's Best of Atlanta 2009.

Future Islands

Future Islands are actually from the future.

J Gerrit Welmers, William Cashion and Samuel T Herring have been making music together since 2003, and as Future Islands since 2006, putting in the work. Formed as college friends in Greenville, NC, Future Islands relocated to Baltimore after becoming friends with Dan Deacon, an early and avid supporter of the band. They’ve released a handful of CD-Rs, tapes and limited vinyl releases, and their debut album "Wave Like Home" came out on UK label Upset the Rhythm in 2008. They’ve toured extensively in the US and Europe, including the Baltimore Round Robin tours and opening for and performing in Dan Deacon’s large ensemble.

For their effort, Future Islands have mastered their style, which Rolling Stone describes as, “adding punishing heft to simple pop melodies, making blippy electropop sound oddly confrontational.” Future Islands calls is “Post-Wave,” taking in part from the emotional fragility of New Wave and coupling it with the power and drive of Post-Punk.

Lonnie Walker

Lonnie Walker

Originally a one-man band, Lonnie Walker evolved from the solo spirit of Brian Corum into a collection of friends bound by their shared passion for music and visual art. Through the additions of Eric Hill, Justin Flythe, Raymond Finn, and Josh Bridgers; Lonnie Walker's music has evolved through their many ever-sharpening performances. Their chemistry resonates through their most recent recorded works unlike anything the band has turned in to date. Their blend of rootsy americana and dance-party punk-rock has only just started to find traction outside of their home
state.

Film Love: Warren Sonbert part three November 19, 2010
8:00PM - - -
Price:  FREE
Film Love and Atlanta Celebrates Photography present

WARREN SONBERT
Friendly Witness and other films

A three-night mini-retrospective on a master of avant-garde cinema

Program Three: Honor and Obey


Warren Sonbert with Bolex camera (courtesy the Estate of Warren Sonbert)

A "friendly witness," Warren Sonbert (1947-1995) holds a unique place in American independent film. On one hand he shows the distinct influence of Hitchcock and the Hollywood melodramas of Douglas Sirk, and on the other he was a rigorous avant-gardist. Combining breathtaking photography with some of cinema’s most complex montage editing, he created an exhilarating body of work – compassionate meditations on global humanity that are visually sumptuous and structurally brilliant. Sonbert's films have been the subject of retrospectives at the Guggenheim Museum and other institutions, but remain available only in 16mm prints and are too rarely screened. Atlanta Celebrates Photography and Film Love present three nights of films by this crucial figure of the American avant-garde.

PROGRAM THREE

Eyedrum | Friday, November 19, 2010 | 8:00 pm | free

Human coupling – the dynamics of communication, romance, and desire – was a theme to which Sonbert returned again and again. Program three pairs two films from opposite ends of his career devoted to this theme: Honor and Obey, in Sonbert’s prime late style, and The Bad and the Beautiful, a restored early film set to (once again) an effective popular music soundtrack. Also screened are films by two of Sonbert’s influences, Stan Brakhage and Marie Menken.

PROGRAM
Wedlock House: An Intercourse (Stan Brakhage, 1959), 16mm, silent, 11 minutes
Honor and Obey (Warren Sonbert, 1988), 16mm, silent, 21 minutes
Lights (Marie Menken, 1966), 16mm, silent, 7 minutes
The Bad and the Beautiful (Warren Sonbert, 1967), 16mm, 34 minutes

WARREN SONBERT: FRIENDLY WITNESS AND OTHER FILMS is a Film Love event.

Loaded Guns: America FTW! November 26, 2010
8:00PM - 12:00AM
Price:  $7-$12 pay-what-you-can
america ftw

Twinhead Theatre brings the funny with our newest original show, Loaded Guns: America FTW! Since 2004, our Loaded Guns series has enabled us to tackle Dada, child rearing, and the movie business, and now we’re drawing inspiration from half-remembered history classes and Wikipedia articles for a hysterical, historical sketch comedy show! It was born, much like our great nation itself, from hard work, late night writing sessions, shocking obscenities, and consistent snuff breaks. The result is 90 minutes of aggressively funny revisions of American history that don’t pull any punch lines. From Pangaea breaking apart all the way up to Glenn Beck’s morning devotional, America FTW asks the important questions: How would a beat poet describe the Trail of Tears? Who really invented the dildo? And whom, if given the chance, would Martin Luther King fight? Witness the founding of our nation! Fidel Castro ripping apart apple-pie America with his communist sickle! Discover the little-known Article 10 from the Treaty with the Cherokees and learn the greatest dance sensation of the 1920’s, “the Kittyhawk.”

Featuring a cast of 15, video segments, and epic song and dance numbers, Loaded Guns: America FTW is the funniest hour and half you’ll spend this year!

Written by James Yates, Eli Banks, Krista Carothers and Twinhead Theatre. Directed by James Yates, Eli Banks, and Krista Carothers.

NOT FOR CHILDREN.

Twinhead Theatre is a 501(c)(3) non-profit whose mission is to inspire and entertain our community and lead a new generation of theatrical performance by developing and producing plays, films, and performance-based events.
