Weston Olencki will be performing new work from Old Time Music, a new recording project released via Tripticks Tapes (Greenfield, MA). The record explores the relationships, contradictions, and shared qualities between experimental and traditional music, contemporary and obsolete audio technology, artificial intelligence and oral knowledge, alternative pasts/futures of Americana, and site-specific historical research and field recording. For this presentation, they will present a new version of a vine that grew over the city and no one noticed, which navigates through lineages of old time traditional musics, rural geography, and the material/industrial histories of the Carolinas. The piece is performed on a setup consisting of a pair of retuned and electromechanically controlled banjos, AM radios, railroad spikes, homemade electromagnetic resonators, and AI-synthesized country music futurism of a preserved past.|
Performed by Laura Steenberge Devil Works for Idle Hands is a series for folk instruments including harmonica, bowed psaltery, celtic harp and gourd viol. Somewhere in between folk and experimental music there are places where the two sensibilities coexist. Patience and timelessness, the sound for its own sake, sometimes calling for a story or explanation to make sense of it all.
