This afternoon, I had Twistycat into our WKCR studios to play a live set, talk about their music and arts projects, and guest DJ Monday's "Afternoon New Music." Twistycat is the electroacoustic bass clarinet/baritone sax and electronics duo of Lea Bertucci and Ed Bear.
An exploration into "Language ,as a music" on the third installment of "The Philosophical Strain in American Postwar Music", a collaboration between WKCR and Benjamin Boretz, founder of Open Space, Perspectives of New Music, and instructor at Bard College.
Focused on two seminal works by GK Jupitter-Larsen, legendary American noise musician known primarily for his work in The Haters. Jupitter-Larsen will be in New York in a few weeks, and will be visiting WKCR, as a part of the Ende Tymes Festival -- check out the lineup and information about the show at http://halfnormal.com/endtimes.
In addition, I played a Zs track and an Ahlzagailzehguh track, as both musicians have shows coming up this week in the city.
Interview with Benjamin Boretz, and the kick off of the new summer series on Afternoon New Music, "The Philosophical Strain in American Postwar Music". Check back biweekly for further installments of this series and talks with composer Benjamin Boretz.
