They scored the gig I had been angling for. It was an interesting evening. This was the "Fall Studio" show. It is the Redcats quarterly outreach to the locals to present what they are working on. There were 6 different performers with a fifteen minute slot. The material presented stretched from far eastern traditional dance styles, to vaudville, to UEM.
For their slot Bill, Andy and Jasmine titled their piece The Typhoon, the rope and the slippers. It dealt with the events and aftermath of a receint typhoon. It was in three parts. Bill played the soprano sax in the third movement. Andy had a proliforation of Gongs in play and Jasmine gave a stirring performance of keeping your head above water and sucking in air. The loops looped. The gongs, gonged. It worked for me. Then I stardted looking at the crowd.
This was a different group than I am used to. With parking at $9.00 and the entrance at $12.00.
This was a different level of arts consumer. A bit more well heeled than I was used to. I am glad I went. I have a better idea of how to pitch this gig.
It was a cool show.
Uem is playing again tonight!

Thanks to LOB for creating a way-cool event!
Sure there was the little glitch with the neighbor with the samaurai sword. Clearly he was put up to it by his nagging wife.
But setting that aside it was an outstanding gathering of the noise community.
After the Big City Orchestra performance closing out the event. A tea ritual with whistling teapots. Bobby from Liver Cancer said "After a weekend of anger and agression, it (the Big City Orchestra performance) was like a big warm hug!"
It was a great weekend!

Guest Curation by CJ Borosque
Intersections and connections:
The 8 ball evening: kicking off the series "BEHIND THE 8"
A show about making connections between artists of radically different musical traditions...
Phogmasheen (trumpet, FX)
Jim Kaiser (bicycle wheel)
CJ Borosque (trumpet, FX)
and Arachnid Arcade (noise FX)
The first set will be a duo between Arachnid Arcade and CJ Borosque. Two noise artists who have never shared the stage.
The music will be spontaneously composed and will be about 25 mins...
The second set will be an orchestra of never-played-together-before musicians.
The set will be 30 to 40 mins
and will be a meditation on a video that will be unveiled the night of the performance.
The musicians will provide an ambient noise score, to go with the film, that will be unrehearsed and unpredicted in outcomes, as radically different players from different tradition create music to accompany visual media they have never seen. Surprise is the name of the game.
If you are in the city, come on down!

I am starting to wrap my brain around designing another web site. I may use the phog blog in the interim.
On June 21 I will be at E-vocal in Costa Mesa a for a noise fest put together by the Actuary people. On the 22 of June I will be at the Puka Bar in Long Beach. Then on Tuesday the 23 at 6AM I am doing the headphone festival in Toulouse, Pyrenees-Atlantiques - Aquitaine, France.
It should be an interesting run.
