Sound. Installation. Improvisation.
Music by members of Mission of Burma, Glenn Branca Ensemble and Neptune.
Sound, installation, improvisation.
8:00 pm: "Drip", a sound installation/performance by members of Neptune.
A ladder, a bucket with a spigot, a washtub basin, and five gallons of water are the simple elements that are combined to assemble an installation sculpture that drips continuously and resonantly. Multiple transducers are used to capture the sound, which is processed electronically to create a shifting and varied soundscape.
Neptune has been creating music from home-made instruments since 1994. They have toured Europe and America extensively, and are regular features at experimental music festivals around the world.
9:00 pm: M2: Album Release Show! "At Land's Edge" on Feeding Tube Records.
M2 is two Miller Brothers.
Roger (Boston: Mission of Burma, Alloy Orchestra, etc), will be playing prepared piano, with bolts and alligator clips stuck on and between the piano's strings, plus a few specific techniques of his own.
Benjamin (NYC: Glenn Branca Ensemble, Sensorium Saxophone Orchestra,), will be playing his unique "Multiphonic Guitar" which involves multiple pickups, preparations, and electronic devices modifying sounds after the fact.
Both musicians tour internationally.
The music is entirely improvised, with bravura technique sublimated for ensemble sound. Both ambient and experimental, it is the gradual, occasionally sudden, shifting and interplay between the two brothers that defines their sound. Between the two of them, the usual sounds of a piano/guitar duo will thoroughly be avoided.
M2's first album (and yes, we do mean album: this LP only release comes with a download card) has a release date of June 1. "At Land's Edge" was superbly recorded at the Lilypad with Michael Bierylo engineering. Copies will be available for sale at the show.
