The Burning, coiled... (First Thursday Improv) February 4, 2010
9:00PM - - -
...snakestyle, channeling but not too pragmatic,
more like fragmatic,
notes held up captive,
base of spine exploding in
not-final daze, drifts off straight line:
"Nothing will produce Bad History[sounds!] more
directly nor brutally, than drawing a Line,
in particular a Right Line,
the very Shape of Contempt..."

instead, broken coiling 'round the egg
dent, dead-on
gone daddy-o gone




Eyedrum's long-running Open Improv night occurs on the first Thursday of every month -- our monthly gathering for instrumentalists and improvisers of all stripes. Bring your instrument! Hosted by the indefatigable Robert Cheatham.

WPBA 30, Atlanta's PBS station, did a bit about Eyedrum's Improv Night a couple years ago for their "This Is Atlanta" show. Click for their description and the video itself (Windows Media, 2m40s).

Satyritown: A short film about Cabbagetown February 5, 2010
7:30PM - 9:00PM
Price:  FREE - Donations accepted
Satyritown

This short art film is about an experience in the quirky intown Atlanta neighborhood of Cabbagetown.

Click here for a clip of the film.



Once an insular, poor, but proud mill village of Appalachian transplants, the neighborhood offered sanctuary to bohemians in the 1970s. The ’90s wave of intown gentrification was not able to stamp out Cabbagetown's offbeat nature. The community is filled with eccentric artisans, musicians and other artist types. The community — authentic and complex — is filled with the creative, intelligent, and curious. People in Cabbagetown are known as the Jester, the King, Doc, the Reverend and the Bike Doctor.

A strong proud sense of community is exhibited. People still sit on their porches together, talk, feud, and help one another. They party and they share food. The town is a world that imitates fantasy inside and outside of the homes.

The film opens among the Krog Street Tunnel with philosophical graffiti. Filmed with an old-fashioned Super 8, the camera captures the nubby, grainy, rich layered textures of the community. Textures and colors are intensified. The film takes on its own form, having a sensual as well as a spiritual feeling to it. The film offers viewers an experience; it invites the viewer to float through such as the camera does. There is a magical and surreal feeling to crossing through the tunnel into this town.

Scenes of a dog in a window, or sheets blowing in the wind become an introduction to a place, its people — and the magical worlds they have built in their homes.

Autographed copies of the book will be available for purchase!

9:00PM - - -
Price:  $7

Improv with an Edge






The Darren Nelsen Band is an instrumental rock/fusion trio comprised of guitar, bass, and drums. Influenced by contemporary composers and guitarists, the band blends and twists genres with attitude. Expect the unexpected, with sounds of jazz, rock, metal, funk, hip-hop, reggae, surf, and rockabilly combined, sometimes all in the same tune! Adventurous and fun, this band keeps the audience on their toes.
Darren Nelsen (guitar), Marc Miller (bass), Micah Boswell (drums).

www.curiomusic.com




Schwarzkommando is an Atlanta-based improvisational art-rock trio organized in tribute to the fiction of Thomas Pynchon.  Lyrics from novels such as Gravity’s Rainbow and The Crying of Lot 49 are sung over an “Obliquely Strategized” yet largely improvised array of sounds – from Cream-like psychedelic "blooz" to full-bore face-melting punk rock, from sci-fi space jazz to pure acoustic settings that would make Fairport Convention blush.  Featuring Mike Goldman (Stovall, Henry Porter) on guitar and vocal, Kelly Shane (Enemy From Space, Kenny Howes and the Yeah!) on drums, and Andy Tegethoff (The Eyes, Solution Science Systems) on bass and vocal.  No two sets are ever the same.

myspace.com/schwarzkommandoband



Burgess Penguin, a 3-piece improvising ensemble that strives to create vivid soundscapes that sound composed but actually are not. Under the collective influence of jazz, rock, psychedelic, TV and Film soundtrack music and even some prog rock, the 3 musicians interact, second-guess and beat each other creatively silly and strive to never play anything the same way once.

Film Love: Mauricio Kagel Part 2 February 18, 2010
8:00PM - - -
Price:  $5
Film Love presents

MAURICIO KAGEL
FILM MUSIC, MUSIC PERFORMANCE, PERFORMANCE FILM

Part 2: 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. For the second night of a two-evening tribute to Kagel's music and film, Film Love presents an exceedingly rare screening of Kagel’s film Two-Man Orchestra.

In this film, 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) (directed by Mauricio Kagel, 1973, 71 minutes) screened on DVD

Part 1 of Mauricio Kagel: Film Music, Music Performance, Performance Film takes place on Friday, February 12, 2010 at Georgia State University.

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 is featured in Atlanta Magazine’s Best of Atlanta 2009. Archives of the series may be found at www.filmlove.org.

Not quite industrial, not quite noise, not quite Melt-Banana spaz rock and yet closely related to all three, Stress Ape stake out a niche for themselves by acting erratically enough to make potential competitors edge away nervously—yet there’s a crisp, lean quality to their fucking about that suggests Machiavellian premeditation. -- Monica Kendrick

Marshmallow Avenue (afternoon kid's show) February 21, 2010
3:00PM - 5:00PM
Price:  $5


Marshmallow Avenue invites children into a world of singing, fun, learning, and silliness. Comprised of elementary/early childhood music teacher Rebecca Puckett, and local rock guitarist Matt McWilliams, the band plays a mix of original songs and traditional favorites. Marshmallow Avenue songs gather inspiration from Rebecca's experiences in an environment where the age limit was 4, but the imagination was limitless.  The band also brings to life familiar tunes like "I've Been Workin on the Railroad" and "Down by the Bay," reinterpreted with trombone antics, happy harmonies, and new rhymes. Ms. Rebecca and Mr. Matt hope to keep on making new songs, carrying on the inspiration of children's folk artists like Sharon, Lois, and Bram; Pete Seeger; Ella Jenkins; and other influences. The show incorporates kid participation in the songs as well as a number of fun interactive games. Marshmallow Avenue invites children and adults of all ages to enjoy this special show at Eyedrum.

Film Love presents

Martin Scorsese
Portrait Films


Two intimate, rarely screened films by the legendary director


How to make pasta sauce: Catherine Scorsese in the kitchen, in Martin Scorsese's Italianamerican

"[Italianamerican] is, I think, the best film I ever made. It really freed me in style...I saw it as the story of these two people. I had seen them as parents, not as people. Then suddenly they became people, and it was a love story." –Martin Scorsese on his film Italianamerican

PRESS for Martin Scorsese: Portrait Films
Creative Loafing: "American Boy and Italianamerican showcase the director’s greatest loves: family, friendship and film. Not necessarily in that order."

To filmgoers the world over, the name "Martin Scorsese" is synonymous with moviemaking, not only through iconic films such as Taxi Driver and Raging Bull but also his well-known advocacy for film preservation and his passionate dedication to all eras and genres of film history – including the experimental and avant-garde.

To coincide with the release of Shutter Island – his first feature since winning the Academy Award for Directing for The Departed – Film Love presents two of Scorsese’s intimate short films. Made in the 1970s as "breathers" in between his ambitious Hollywood films, they represent some of the director’s loosest, most free-wheeling work, and deserve wider recognition.

Italianamerican (1974) lovingly profiles Scorsese’s parents, Charles and Catherine (whose acting appearances in their son’s films have delighted fans for decades). In addition to showing priceless moments of interaction between husband, wife, and son, the film doubles as a moving (and typically cinematic) portrait of a long marriage, and by extension the immigrant experience in mid twentieth-century America.

American Boy: A Profile of Steven Prince (1978) is an alternately charming and intense film about Scorsese’s friend and roommate (most famous for his cameo as a gun salesman in Taxi Driver). An almost archetypal member of the ‘60s generation, Prince is an effortless raconteur, recounting a series of riveting and increasingly hysterical anecdotes about his Jewish upbringing in the ‘50s, experiences as road manager for Neil Diamond, heroin addiction, and sober brushes with violence and death (some of which found their way almost verbatim into movies by other directors, most notably Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction).

Common to both films are nods to the meta-cinematic innovations of the French New Wave and the Cinema Vérité movement – such as shots of Scorsese directing and discussing the films as they’re being made, and the insertion of home movies and other archival footage – that remind us of how important the act of making movies is in the director’s own life, and make these films, in part, a celebration of moviemaking itself.

Called "the bravest thing Scorsese has ever done" by The New York Times, these films remain unavailable on video in the United States. Film Love is proud to present a one-night-only screening of these too-rarely-seen works.

Tierra Brutal, NO February 27, 2010
9:00PM - - -
Price:  $5
Tierra Brutal is an instrumental rock band made up of three very different gentlemen with a mutual interest for sonic inquiry. Disparate backgrounds and musical tastes crystallize into a unique amalgamation of punk, psychedelic, ambient, improv, post-whatever... and becomes frozen into a noisy fudgesicle of sound.

- Neal Williams (drumsicle) played in numerous bands before Tierra Brutal, opening up for the likes of Don Caballero, Mono, Secret Machines and more. Tierra Brutal is his most rocking endeavor to date.

- Marshall Marrotte (bassicle) has played in lots of bands you have never heard of (Never?, Monument Valley, Desk Pussy, Zepubicle...) and that's just fine with him. As the elder statesman of the band he can confidently pronounce that "Tierra Brutal makes a damn fine racket."

- Peter Burghardt (guitarsicle) has been making music all over America. When just a teenager his highschool band embedded itself in the Minneapolis music scene, opening for bands such as The Hidden Chord and Sickbay. Later he moved to Chicago where he became an active participant in the Windy City’s experimental rock scene. Currently he lives in Atlanta where keeps it real by shredding with his band mates in Tierra Brutal.

No is made up of Glenn, Jeff & Vonda--three people who have played and toured together for quite some time in different noise rock incarnations in the Southeastern music scene. Miminal post-noise, post-whatever. Just listen.

Cook's work explores the tension between drawing and painting and three-dimensional space. The framework for this exploration is the human form. The figure is amazingly resilient when it comes to abstraction- it can be reassembled in almost any way and still be recognizable. These pieces are fragmented, but also playful, broken, pensive or jubilant, not unlike the flesh and blood figures they are based on.

Russell Cook is an artist and musician. He is currently living in Oakman, GA and an art faculty member at the Georgia Highlands College.
