North on Thursday...

I am playing a festive gig at the Luggage Store Gallery in San Francisco on Thursday night. This promises to be a festive evening of experimental music. Here is the Description:

Thursday, Aug 13 2009 8:00 PM

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!

This show went very well! Big thanks to Bill Almas for securing Dry Ice for the event. Jim Kaiser rode his bike to the gig then used the front wheel to make sounds.
CJ Borosque was in fine form as usual and Arachnid Arcade brought a lovely pallet of sounds to the event. CJ projected a movie for the second set and we performed the soundtrack. It was a great evening!
