Film Love: Andy Warhol 3 - Portrait films May 4, 2007

Edie Sedgwick in Andy Warhol's Outer and Inner Space (1965), double-screen projection

In conjunction with Eyedrum’s large gallery show of contemporary portraiture, “Andy Warhol 3 and 4” presents works from Warhol’s two most celebrated forays into cinematic portraiture: the sprawling Screen Test series and his extended fascination with the mercurial superstar Edie Sedgwick.

The Screen Test films – numbering over 400 – were made from 1964 through 1966. Visitors to Warhol’s Factory studio would be asked to sit for their portrait. The camera was pointed at their face in closeup and turned on, and three minutes later the film was done. During this small eternity, subjects would register everything from boredom to charisma, discomfort to indifference, heroic resolve to face down the camera, or an inability to suppress emotion (and giggles). The psychological complexity of the Screen Tests is matched by the care which Warhol took to highlight his subjects’ individual features, and the immense range of the subjects themselves. We will screen two representative reels of Screen Tests as preserved by New York’s Museum of Modern Art. Featured will be subjects from the famous - Lou Reed, Susan Sontag, Marcel Duchamp - to unidentified people known to us now only by their three minutes of fame in front of Warhol’s camera.

Rounding out the program are two portrait films of one of Warhol’s greatest stars (and subject of the recent film Factory Girl), Edie Sedgwick. Radiating charisma, style, and sly wit, Sedgwick was Warhol’s muse at the height of his filmmaking activity. “Outer and Inner Space” is a double-screen portrait film in which Sedgwick responds to her own image on a TV screen. In “Beauty #2,” acclaimed as one of Warhol’s greatest films, Edie lies on a bed with her current boyfriend, while her off-camera former boyfriend tries to distract her with dialogue and increasingly personal comments. Sedgwick stands up to this demanding and complex scenario, displaying both vulnerability and a fierce independence.

Friday's program:
Screen Tests reel 24: Freddy Herko; Lucinda Childs; John Cale; Niki de Saint Phalle; Lou Reed (eye and mouth); Marcel Duchamp; Steve Stone; Grace Glueck; Lou Reed (Hershey bar). 1964-1966, 16mm, black and white, silent, 40 minutes
Outer and Inner Space (1965), 16mm, black and white, sound, 33 minutes featuring Edie Sedgwick

monthly show on WREK 91.1 FM May 6, 2007
7:00PM - 9:00PM




On the first Sunday of every month, at 7 p.m., Eyedrum does a show on WREK (91.1 FM / www.wrek.org) that features nuggets from Eyedrum's archive of live performances.


After the show airs "live", you can listen to it via WREK's 7-day archive if you forget to tune in (direct links to Sunday Special streams: lo-fi or hi-fi).

But wait, there's more! We now have a podcast available, for those of you who have discovered podcasting. You can also just download the whole show (right click on "download") although be forewarned that the file is over 50 MB in size.



This month we started with some live recordings of The Subliminator, Team Gina, GFE (playing again May 8th with GKduo), Bent Frequency (May 20th), Atlanta Poets Group (dedicated radio show next month, June 3rd), Wilbert de Joode, Peter Brotzmann Trio and even Amy Ray. We played a field recording of the Eyedrum crew blowing minds in the annual Inman Park Parade on April 28th. We then continued with some recordings of Lid Emba, Spaceseed, The Strix Varia and Z-Axis -- all playing at the May 18th "Outer Space"-themed show. Todd Nickelson and Nashville Nuns (members of Stovall) were up next, appearing at the Peter Loose art event on May 12th, and finally we closed with some industrial noise / percussion by Z'ev (playing at Eyedrum on May 16th). Another show that was stylistically all over the musical map. Something for everyone! Studio guests included Allen Welty-Green, Bryan Dodd and John Gillett; hosted by Chris Campbell.

GKduo and GFE!
on the same bill!!


Matthew Golombisky (acoustic/electric bass, effects, likable noise, and melodica) and Quin Kirchner (drums, samples, melodica, and tapes) originally met in New Orleans over four years ago. After their meeting, they began to play as much as possible together with groups such as QMRplus, Grilly Biggs, Red Shift, The Hall Monitors, The Other Planets, etc. After Hurricane Katrina swept through, Golombisky moved to Chicago to finish graduate school and Kirchner spent some time in New York City, studying at the Manhattan School of Music, but soon they were reunited in Chicago where they both currently reside.

This new project, with old collective roots, is alive and exciting. With meter changing grooves to audio landscapes and haunting melodies, they capture the audience immediately. Golombisky improvises melodic passages that seem like they've been worked on for years on acoustic and electric bass with (or without) an array of effects. He also plays melodica, various percussion, and samples live events, manipulating them into chaos, or melancholic drones. Kirchner, with his drum set and percussion toys, lays down beats that are not to be ignored by any being. One can always hear so many influences coming through each stroke, from his studies in Cuba to his street and university education in New Orleans, Chicago, and New York City. His use of melodica and tape machine is an important element in this duo's sound. Without it, it's a different band.

Since their arrival in Chicago, they have been blessed to be welcomed to the jazz and creative music scene, playing with such greats as Jeb Bishop, Dave Rempis, Kent Kessler, Tim Daisy, Daniele D'Agaro, Nate McBride, Josh Berman, Jason Adasiewicz, Sam Macy, among others, and in bands such as, Tomorrow Music Orchestra, Lucky 7s, Pedway, and ZING!.

GFE

Yes, GFE is back to frighten the bold and enable the timid with its firehose of magma fructose/cayenne sweet hot brush with the death and vivification of sound living on the ragged edge of breath and fingertip leaving behind all visible landmarks...

THE VOYAGE BEGINS!!!

GFE: 
Jeff Bradley - double bass 
Scott Burland - pedal steel guitar
Rob Cheatham - saxophones, keyboard 
Kevin Haller - guitar 
Bob Hulihan - electronics & knives 
Milton Jones - percussion
John Lowther - turntables
Jeff Rackley - sound 

or some combination of the above...

"GFE applies the principles and approach of freeform jazz to rock music. The results are a spacious amalgamation of experimental jams that are sometimes sparse and sometimes chaotic, but always captivating."
- Chad Radford, Creative Loafing

Blossoming Noise Presents Z'ev, Mr. Natural, etc. May 16, 2007
9:00PM - - -
Since the 1970's, the currently Uk -based text/sound artist Z'EV has been at the forefront of the movement that became known as "industrial".

A precursor even to Neubauten, his brand of scrap-metal/found object percussion originates in intense musical training and background. Beginning with his days at the California Institute of the Arts, Z'EV has studied techniques such as Balinese Gamelan, EWE (Ghana), Tala (south India), and Vou Dun (Hati).

Incorporating these traditional methods into his distinctly personal musical vision of sound, Z'EV has consistently produced vital examples of his craft for a host of noted labels including Soleilmoon, C.I.P, Touch and Die Stadt and a commissioned piece for John Zorn's "Radical Jewish Music" series on Zaddik. His record "Bust This" was chosen in 1988 by The Wire as one of the greatest 50 percussion albums of all time.

Lid Emba

Prologue:
Circa 1991, a 2:00 a.m. show at CBGB’s with porno-core provocateurs the impotent seasnakes. Mid-set, Hilly Krystal’s geriatric, Bosch-type hound squatted in front of the stage and took a pungent dump. Post-show, I was sucker punched with "you're such an asshole" by the grizzled soundtech for being older than 22 and still drumming my ass off in public. Ever since, I've often wondered: Was that sneering, blowjob hungry casualty actually an all knowing oracle of truth? If so, then I'm even more of an asshole now.
Delusions of grandeur:
Early in my naivete, I taught myself to hit things with sticks. Since then, I've played in many bands that history has blissfully ignored, navigating from graceless garage rituals to mercenary disco to new romantic brain damage to tight-assed honkie funk to snooty college-radio fodder, ad nauseam. A few years after leaving the seasnakes, I formed post-prog unit 3d5spd, contributing sampling and synths in addition to boom crack boom. The noise that was rejected kick-started Lid Emba, my "fuck off, I’m an island" project. 3d5spd evaporated in 2004 after four CDs. Lid Emba became the new monkey on my back.

Strix Varia
 
Strix Varia is a fluid collective of musicians who, armed with a diverse array of musical experiences, life experiences, thought processes and such, recombine and transmute these experiences into a viscereal improvisational musical experience.
 
Starting with not much more than a key, a ryhthm or some skeletal idea, the ensemble fearlessly builds on the idea resulting in colorful and oft-times unpredictable improvisational flights that could include elements of psychedelic rock, jazz, funk, prog-rock or anything else that comes to mind. Without the constraint of vocals, Strix Varia finds itself quite free to explore in detail
 
The ensmble's name is the scientific name of the Barred Owl, a firece, nocturnal and mysterious bird, a lot like it's namesake's music.

Shush

The celestial voice of Drolma floats over Mark Baker’s loopy guitar (both founding members of Bleu Velveta) and Crafty Guitarist David Smart’s ambient bass, forming Shush, a lush dreamscape of textured melody. Shush now.



p. d. wilder

p. d. wilder, aka chaos is a texas drone/noise musician; using acoustic & electric guitars with interspersed samples and incoherent vocals in an attempt to recreate in an improv setting the time spent traveling across the uncomfortable calm and urgency of the vast rolling plains and desert valleys of Texas, through a philosophy of allowing for a pattern of sound to overtake if not replace any confinement, attempting to reestablish the listener, musician, and music itself as the pattern; interconnected.

"if a broom swept the tile floor of a ghost town's back porch, with infinity in its breadth, it might resemble the sound of this guitar..." – david caddell, the local.

"expansive soundscapy guitarist with a patient mastery of timbre & texture, light & shadow" – womblife.

"he creates dense atmospheres, restrained but brimming with feedback and pulsing guitar drones." – richard di santo, incursion.

"consists of swirling and scratching string manipulations and percussive patterns, along with a lazy valium laced vocal style that makes for an interesting marriage of psychedelic and experimental free-improv elements." – jerry kranitz, aural-innovations.

"stratospheric post-rock for sad, sensitive wanderers ... powerfully resonant guitar drones evoke densely textured tracts of space." – dave segal, alternative press.

Duet for Theremin and Lapsteel

Duet for Theremin and Lapsteel is Scott Burland on Theremin and Frank Schultz on Lap Steel. The project came out of an Eyedrum improv group performance at The Contemporary.

Ferlinghetti's Routines May 24, 2007

Price:  $12


Routines was first published by New Directions in 1964. Written by legendary poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti, it was his hope that in, "feeling around on the frontiers of the theatre, we may yet possibly discover some ‘seeking action’ in life itself." He continued by calling it "a kind of Third Stream Theatre (re Third Stream Jazz scene): a "third stream between oldstyle dramas and spontaneous Action or improvisation, between Well-Made Plays and those free-form Happenings made of perceptual chaos."

We choose to call Routines Installation Theatre; it is theatre that we hope will modify the way we actively or inactively participate as audiences and performers alike. Participants include local area sculptors, tattoo artist, painters, musicians, animators, videographers, historians, fire dancers and actors. This will surely be an experience to not be missed.

Routines plays May 24th, 25th and 26th 2007 at 8:30 PM. This play does contain vulgar language, full frontal nudity and hyper-sexual situations. Tickets are $12-$25 pay what you want sliding scale style and are only available at the door the evening of performance. 50% of the proceeds go to support Eyedrum programming.

The participants include: Collin Guy, Ben Winter, Sean Parris, William Tucker, Laura Krueger, Tae Eady, Jillian Fratkin and Carol Tulloss.

Uncle Woody and Kevin Davis/ Drum Trio May 30, 2007
9:00PM - - -
Price:  $5
Kevin Davis and former Chicagoan Woody Sullender continue to find unexplored terrain for banjo and cello, weeding out any reference to bluegrass or old-timey music.

"wonderfully strangulated tangles of notes arrive in brief bursts, then recede into gentle arpeggios or ominous single-note runs."
--Peter Margasak, Chicago Reader

"This is instrumental improvisation that ranges pretty far out, but retains a kind of real humanity due to the inherent warmth of the acoustic strings on which it’s created. I’m reminded a little bit of what an imaginary collaboration between Eugene Chadbourne and Tristan Honsinger might sound like, but this set doesn’t venture quite as far afield as I’m sure that pair would. Beautiful, dynamic stuff."
--Byron Coley, HARP magazine




Also performing are the local drum trio of Brian Fielden, Keith Leslie, and Jamie Shepard.
