The Experimental Music Yearbook presents: Carolyn Chen and the Happy Valley Band

Human Resources

8PM

$5

The Experimental Music Yearbook’s 2016 issue is celebrated with a performance of Carolyn Chen’s Signs of Struggle as well as a special Los Angeles appearance by David Kant’s Happy Valley Band.

Carolyn Chen’s Signs of Struggle is a piece for people listening and reacting to different degrees of uncertainty when given a series of variably cooperative, weight-sharing tasks. Using Antonioni’s Blow Up and Coppola’s The Conversation as sonic and procedural references, a choreography of sound, listening, and movement is explored by a frequently-blindfolded quartet.

The Happy Valley Band is the Great American Songbook heard through the ear of a machine. Composer / bandleader David Kant uses custom-built machine learning software to “unmix” pop songs and transcribe them back into musical notation. Imagine James Brown backed by a simmering Sun Ra Arkestra, Madonna with a jittery freak-out synth rhythm section, and Herb Alpert with a Tijuana Brass that must have been led by Charles Ives.

Southland Ensemble: Anthony Braxton’s Ghost Trance Music

ArtShareLA

8PM

$15 / $20

“events that start but do not end”

Southland Ensemble presents an evening of Anthony Braxton’s Ghost Trance Music. Written between 1995 - 2006, Braxton created over 100 of these compositions that serve as pathways between different notation systems and musical idioms.

Composition No. 228 Composition No. 245 Composition No. 358

with special guests:

Corey Fogel, Chris Foss, Andrew Munsey, Leah Paul, Kathy Pisaro, Stephanie Richards, Bill Roper, Jake Rosenzweig, Dave Tranchina & Argenta Walther

“In my system, every piece is an orchestra piece, every piece is a chamber piece, every piece is a solo piece. But that’s just on one plane. On the second plane, the bass part of “Composition 83” can itself be extracted and played by four hundred flutes with tambourines. Or it can be taken and played backwards, and hooked to something else. Finally, every composition of mine can be placed in a summation logic context, where it will aid the predominant voices of whatever identity it is aligned with. This is a context of structural connections that can be viewed in the same way that we talk of an erector set, that can be put together in different ways depending upon the needs of the moment.” - Anthony Braxton, 1995 interview

SACRED / PROFANE : MICHAEL PISARO and GUILLAUME de MACHAUT

Zipper Hall, The Colburn School, Los Angeles

8PM

$27 / 12

Ever since its earliest days in the 1930s, Monday Evening Concerts has striven to find kindred musical spirits from diverse historical epochs. In the third concert of our season, we pair the works of two composers: Michael Pisaro and Guillame de Machaut. Pisaro, who lives in Los Angeles, is one of the foremost representatives of the Wandelweiser Group. Writing pieces that feature microtonal electric guitar, bowed percussion, field recordings, rustling pine cones and choir, Pisaro has garnered wide critical acclaim. His counterpart on this concert, Guillaume de Machaut, was one of the great poets and musicians of 14th Century France. While the surfaces of these respective composers’ works differ greatly, by placing them side by side, we examine the deeper connections that exist between these sublime artists separated by seven centuries.

Jackson Mac Low: Poem as Score

UC San Diego Conrad Prebys Music Center

7PM

$FREE

Jennifer Bewerse is joined by Southland Ensemble to present her final recital at UC San Diego featuring the chance poetry of Jackson Mac Low. Mac Low’s dedication to systems of composition – which included chance, indeterminacy, and simultaneous performance – allowed him to create works of extreme openness. His poems represent a moment in poetry where truths of authorship were called into question and the very boundaries of music and poetry were pulled taut.

“I myself think that if it is a connection and it does something, it’s some kind of cause but it’s different from the time-linear cause going from past to future. It’s across any present, between any two things coexisting. … And I think that one thing that systematic chance does allow… is for something to happen on that synchronous plane.” - Jackson Mac Low

Featuring:

  • Tree Movie
  • 54th Light Poem: For Ian Tyson
  • The Five Young Turtle Asymmetries
  • Is That Wool Hat My Hat
  • Numbered Asymmetries

The superbly imaginative, sonically expansive work of composer and sound artist Mark Trayle (1955–2015) is the subject of this tribute by friends, colleagues and former students in The Hub and Bitpanic. Co-founded by Trayle in 1986, The Hub emerged out of the Mills College scene to become the most influential improvising electronic ensemble since Musica Elettronica Viva (MEV). Known for using networked electronic and digital systems of its own devising, the Bay Area group currently consists of John Bischoff, Chris Brown, Tim Perkis, Scot Gresham-Lancaster, Phil Stone and Matt Ingalls. Adding to the computer music lineage pioneered by The Hub is the recently formed collective Bitpanic. Based in Los Angeles, it comprises Casey Anderson, Scott Cazan, Clay Chaplin, David Paha and Stephanie Smith—all one-time students of Trayle at CalArts.

“I discovered more and more how much you can minimize the number of props in the theater…a chair, but such a strong situation. If the drama is credible, you get to what is absolutely necessary without risking emptiness.” - Mauricio Kagel

The Reader’s Chorus consists of composers and musicians, visual artists and filmmakers, writers and poets.

Since then members have been creating new works for the Chorus to develop and arrange in laboratory rehearsal.

David Tudor’s RAINFOREST is a blueprint to a sonic environment, an exploration of resonance that has had a significant impact on electroacoustic music. Now, over forty years since its inception, Southland Ensemble is proud to present an evening dedicated to the work.

“The basic notion, which is a technical one, was the idea that the loudspeaker should have a voice which was unique and not just an instrument of reproduction, but as an instrument unto itself.” - David Tudor

The concert will feature an installation and live performance of RAINFOREST IV, as well as Carolyn Chen’s Other forests, inspired by Tudor’s work.

“Other Forests is an amazing piece of composing craftsmanship – the string quartet having to work within a complex scheme of sounds recycled from found objects – but the result was a convincing portrayal of an organic entity as fashioned from acoustic, electronic and mechanical means.” - Paul Muller, Sequenza 21

Odeya Nini : A Solo Voice + members of Southland Ensemble : INSTRUCTABLES

Human Resources, Los Angeles

8PM

$10

Evolving over the last three years, A Solo Voice by Odeya Nini is an investigation of extended vocal techniques, resonance and pure expression, exploring the relationship between mind and body and the various landscapes it can yield. The work is a series of malleable compositions and improvisations that include field recordings and theatrical elements, aiming to dissociate the voice from its traditional attributes and create a new logic of song that is not only heard but seen through movement. Through multi-dimensionality that serves to both provoke and soothe in abstract communication, the voice is presented in its spectrum of natures as it travels through cultures, ages, emotions and colors, like photographs, with tender intimacy and bold aberrance.

::::

Members of Southland Ensemble present a 30 minute set entitled INSTRUCTABLES, a long form composition by Cassia Streb incorporating new work by Eric KM Clark alongside compositions by Taku Sugimoto and Manfred Werder.

The Southland Ensemble Plays Early Robert Ashley

REDCAT, Los Angeles

830PM

$25 / $20 / $12

Southland Ensemble, L.A.’s fast-rising experimental music collective, offers an intense portrait concert of the early oeuvre of Robert Ashley (1930–2014), a restless innovator of American music. Although the composer is best known for his later operas and theatrical works, the group focuses on a collection of seldom-performed compositions from the 1960s—
work thought to be more conceptual than musical. The ensemble sets out
to demonstrate otherwise. Its program features the iconic pieces She
Was a Visitor (1967) and The Wolfman (1964) alongside lesser-known, though equally strong, titles such as Trios (White on White) (1963) and the
 In memoriam… trilogy (1963). Started in 2013, Southland Ensemble consists of co-directors Eric KM Clark and Christine Tavolacci and core members Casey Anderson, Matt Barbier, Orin Hildestad, James Klopfleisch, Jonathan Stehney and Cassia Streb.

Readers Chorus at the Velaslavasay Panorama

The Velaslavasay Panorama, Los Angeles

7PM

$10

The reader’s chorus consists of composers and musicians, visual artists and filmmakers, writers and poets. Jordan Biren and Sara Roberts were introduced to the Black/White Oratorio by the poets Anthony McCann and Joshua Beckman for a production on the subterranean stage of the Machine Project’s Magic Theater. Inspired by this hallucinogenic poem and also by the possibilities for experimentation with a group of speaking voices, Sara and Jordan recruited a dedicated corps interested in creating new material and experimenting with it as a group. This Reader’s Chorus again performed Lax and Beer’s Black and White Oratorio last June at the Wulf, as part of the 2014 Dogstar Experimental Music Festival. Since then various members of the corps have written new works for the Reader’s Chorus to develop, arrange, and rehearse together.

On this program we will be performing Robert Lax and John Beer’s Black and White Oratorio, preceded by shorter new works by chorus members.

Personnel
Casey Anderson, Jordan Biren, Kate Brown, John Burtle, Clay Chaplin, Tuni Chatterji, Corey Fogel, Morgan Gerstmar, Jen Hutton, James Klopfleisch, Todd Lerew, Manuel Lima, Heather Lockie, Eve Luckring, Sara Roberts, Mady Schutzman, Haruko Tanaka, Christine Tavolacci

Widely recognized as one of the most intriguing talents in American postmodern composition, Anne LeBaron has used her music to explore a range of fanciful subjects and stories—from the mysterious Singing Dune of Kazakhstan to figures such as the apocryphal cross-dressing Pope Joan and Voodoo queen Marie Laveau. Surveying four decades of adventurous musicmaking—honored with the Herb Alpert Award in the Arts, as well as Guggenheim and Fulbright fellowships, among other prizes—two separate programs feature selections from LeBaron’s operas, concert theater pieces, and instrumental compositions augmented by electronics and video. Also in the mix: a sneak preview of the composer’s seventh opera, Psyche & Delia, which probes the cultural resonances of LSD; and compositions by LeBaron’s former students. Guest artists include soprano Lucy Shelton, flutist Camilla Hoitenga and the Formalist Quartet.

DIAMONDS & TAPESTRIES – EFIRD WESTERLUND

Highways, Los Angeles

830PM

$20/$15

Diamonds & Tapestries is the live performance of Joe Westerlund’s record Grandma Sparrow & His Piddletractor Cirque-estra embellished by Carson Efird’s romps & rollicks that frolic through the sonic landscape. Grandma Sparrow & His Piddletractor Cirqueestra reveals Westerlund’s fascination with collage, improvisation, humor, and the convergence of atonal and popular melodies in a psychedelic children’s song-cycle for adults. Efird’s choreography is extracted & abstracted from Grandma Sparrow’s riddles & rhymes and enlivens the many personalities that reside in the town of Piddletractor.

EFIRD WESTERLUND is the newly established experimental dance and music collaborations of Los Angeles-based choreographer and composer, Carson Efird and Joe Westerlund. They met in an improvisation for dancers and musicians class at Bennington College in 2003. Ten years later, EFIRD WESTERLUND is producing their first evening length debut, Diamonds & Tapestries: The Embellished Grandma Sparrow & His Piddletractor Cirque-estra.

8:00pm

$FREE

Alvarado Caverns and Mystery Theater is a project by Chris Weisbart that turns the street level of our space into a haunted cave. In the basement, we built an 18-seat Victorian opera house that is accessed via a hidden staircase behind a stalagmite in the cave. We are commissioning a wide range of artists and performers to develop works around hauntings, the uncanny, and the mysterious to take place in the space.

Casey Anderson will perform in-progress works for radios, found resonators, piezo drivers, tuning forks, and laptops. Then, from 9-10pm, Paul Fraser‘s floating head can be seen inside the Pepper’s Ghost performing a cave-themed ambient set (sampling recordings about stalagmites/stalactites, The Goonies, The Dark Crystal, etc.).

James Klopfleisch presents…

the wulf., Los Angeles, CA

8:00 p.m.

$FREE

James Klopfleisch presents a varietal cornucopia of new, and old, (and borrowed) experimental musics. Some deal with work/labor, some deal with the definition of the word something, some deal with possibly the most syphilitic of Schumanns melodies. Also, Mike Winter has a piece, to converge (abstract), where component intervals of a harmonic series converge towards their natural placement. If youre terribly confused by all this, come anyways. just staring at this website wont help you.

An Evening with Rick Bahto and the Echo Park Film Center

7:00 P.M.

The Ray Stark Family Theatre, SCA 108
900 W. 34th Street, Los Angeles, CA 90007

FREE ADMISSION. OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.

A survey of some recent work made by young artists affiliated with the Echo Park Film Center—as teachers or students, curators in the microcinema or artists-in-residence. The works were created on a variety of small gauge film formats—16mm, Super 8mm, and 8mm—many existing only as reversal originals (all shown here in video reproductions). Ranging from diary films, playful narratives, formal abstractions, and performance-based work, the program highlights the work of a loose community of artists actively expanding the possibilities of analog filmmaking in the avant-garde tradition.

Programmed by Rick Bahto, an artist working primarily with 8mm / Super 8mm film, photography, sound, and performance currently living in Los Angeles. Featuring recent films by Rick Bahto, Hayley Elliott, Eve LaFountain, Alee Peoples, Mike Stoltz, Penelope Uribe-Abee, pablo valencia, and/or Walter Vargas, and others. All films originating on 16mm, Super 8mm, or 8mm, shown on video.

Followed by a Q&A with Rick Bahto, moderated by Dr. David E. James, Ph.D., Professor of Critical Studies at the USC School of Cinematic Arts.

Byron Westbrook: Interval/Habitat

August 15 – 23, 2013, Human Resources L.A.

Performances: August 15, 7pm + August 18, 3pm + August 22, 7pm

Gallery Hours 3 – 7pm August 16 – 23, W,TH, F, S, SU

August 22nd performance: Casey Anderson and ensemble / Ted Byrnes, Ulrich Krieger and Wyatt Keusch/ Erin Schneider and ensemble

Byron Westbrook’s Interval/Habitat installation at Human Resources approaches the space as a dramatic stage. Inviting several guest performers and the audience to activate this stage, it plays looping sequences of light and sound to create “scenes” and filmic “cuts” to impose a timebased narrative form over all activity within the space. The piece approaches light and sound as physical, structural material to facilitate a changing awareness of self, body, space, and presence of others, defining social boundaries by limiting what visitors can see or hear, and dynamically shifting their focus between navigating internal psychological space and external physical space.

Interval/Habitat will be installed for two weeks at Human Resources with an accompanying series of performances, each of which offers focused examples of what may emerge from the imposition of Interval/Habitat’s dramatic structure on physical interaction, perception and communication. Performance Schedule can be found on Human Resources L.A.’s website.

August 23, gallery hours 3-7, closing reception 6pm

$FREE

Come join us for the inaugural event of S.Ex.M., aka The Society of Experimental Musicians, aka The Society of Ex. Musicians, aka The Society of ExMus!

S.Ex.M. is a group dedicated to the exploration and realization of radical music, music on the fringe, and anything and everything that falls under the extremely vague category of not in any concrete category. It is made up of composers, performers, listeners, creators, and hangers-on (as well as the un-categorizable member).

Each month we will (attempt) to feature a new artist from within our ranks. They will give a performance of some of their work, talk about that work, and then there will be a discussion, possibly moderated (and possibly not).

The first event will feature S.Ex.M. founder James Klopfleisch, who will perform his pieces The Virgin Joke and Landscape #4, and then talk about what he hopes to accomplish with all of this. The moderated discussion will feature Anne LeBaron, Casey Anderson, Richard Valitutto, and Dorothy Fortenberry.

There will be coffee and Mexican pastries - think of it as a type of experimental brunch.

$FREE

featuring Matador Oven, Adam Overton, and possibly others soon to be announced…

Ripe for Embarrassment: For a New Musical Masochism is a manifesto—written by Matador Oven, translated by Adam Overton—proposing a new paradigm in composer/performer relations, wherein the composer is a masochist who uses score-based Cageian indeterminacy in hopes of being humiliated by a willing performer. It was published in February 2013 as part of the Experimental Music Yearbook 2012, and was first delivered as a lecture at Kristi Engle Gallery in January 2012. Keywords: masochism, scores, work to rule, malicious compliance, consenting adults.

Tomb of the Unknown Composer, by Adam Overton (and cited in Matador Ovens Ripe for Embarrassment) is concert featuring performances of re-named and mis-attributed scores. Unknown titles and composers are soon to be determined, and may feature a number of performers, also soon to be determined.

Mark Trayles Phantom Rooms

Museum of Jurassic Technology, Culver City, CA

8 and 9:30 pm

$15/10 (students)/Free (for members)

Phantom Rooms is a composition that maps room acoustics with a network of laptops and other instruments. The musicians exchange these maps over the network, so that rooms appear in other rooms as acoustic phantoms, their resonant frequencies disturbing the acoustics of the rooms they haunt.
Members of the audience mix the composition as they wander from room to room. Expect long tones, gently bubbling feedback, and improvisational flux in this almost-hour-long performance.

Note: since only 50 people can fit in the Museums second floor, were doing two shows, 8:00pm and 9:30pm.

With Casey Thomas Anderson (laptop/saxophone), Matt Barbier (trombone), Stephanie Smith (laptop/violin), Ashley Walters (cello), and Mark Trayle (laptop). This is the U.S. premiere of Phantom Rooms.

THE EXPERIMENTAL MUSIC YEARBOOK

Issue Project Room, New York, NY

7:30pm

$?

Now entering its 4th year, The Experimental Music Yearbook is a repository for composers, performers, and the public to glean the methods and styles of various artists working in the experimental music tradition. As the modes of experimentation in the arts change from year to year, the Experimental Music Yearbook’s annual issues will build into a comprehensive, and varied, database of experimentation in music/sound.

For this concert, the editors (Casey Anderson, Scott Cazan, and John Hastings) will select highlights from the first three years to spotlight the different methods composers use to create their music. Differing in concept and execution, the compositions display the full range given to performers in realizing works in the experimental tradition. Composers include Peter Ablinger, Casey Anderson, Olivia Block, John P. Hastings, Hans W. Koch, and Christian Wolff.

MKM (Norbert Möslang, Jason Kahn, Gunter Müller) , Mark Trayle, Scott Cazan, Casey Anderson

Swiss electronic musicians Norbert Möslang, Jason Kahn, and Gunter Müller join local artists Mark Trayle, Scott Cazan, and Casey Anderson for a rare night of genre-defying improvisation. Möslang, Kahn, and Müller, playing together as MKM, wield a sound palette that hovers between the harsh rhythmic noise of Norbert Möslang´s cracked everyday electronics and the rich sonorities of Günter Müller´s percussion-based samples and electronics. Jason Kahn´s work on analog synthesizer bridges both worlds, adding high frequency interference and processed piezo microphone and short wave radio input to the trio. MKMs set is sure to be a sight to see, a rare opportunity to revel in three of electronic musics most distinctive voices.

Scott Cazan kicks things off with a solo set of feedback and digital electronics. Up next is an improvised duo between Casey Anderson (laptop, radio, amplified metal) and Jason Kahn (analog synthesizer, piezo microphone, and short wave radio), improvising together for the first time. After MKMs set, Mark Trayle and Anderson will join MKM for a large ensemble conclusion to the night - surely not to be missed.

Les Espaces Acoustiques and Beyond: New Music after Grisey

Featuring the CalArts New Century Players and the CalArts Orchestra conducted by Mark Menzies
U.S. premieres

“Grisey stands among the foremost composers of his generation.” The New York Times

“We are musicians and our model is sound not literature, sound not mathematics, sound not theater, visual arts, quantum physics, geology, astrology or acupuncture.” Gérard Grisey

Exploring both the roots and enduring legacy of spectral music, this revelatory two-night showcase opens with the first-ever U.S. performance, in its entirety, of French iconoclast Gérard Grisey’s magnum opus, Les Espaces Acoustiques. The six-part cycle written between 1974 and 1985 became a touchstone for spectralism, a movement that sought to reconnect music with the full spectrum of sound, from consonance to noise. Pioneered by Grisey and Tristan Murail of the collective L’Itinéraire, this genre notably reconceived harmonic space in terms of sonic timbre and used electronic music techniques to manipulate live acoustic performance. Les Espaces Acoustiques begins with a viola solo and continues with sections for progressively larger ensembles, with the final two parts, for full orchestra, reaching Wagnerian heights of grandeur. The second concert follows up with works by younger generations of composers influenced by Grisey and spectralism, with recent compositions by Thierry Alla, Philippe Hurel, Kasper Toeplitz, Gérard Pesson (all from France), Rozalie Hirs (Netherlands), Andrew McIntosh (USA) and Wolfgang von Schweinitz (Germany/USA).

CEAIT Festival

Thursday and Friday, 8:30pm

$20/16

“[Steve Roden’s work] is aural performance art… Simplicity and beauty, sparse and Zen…” Igloo

Bozulich is following a muse that runs her ragged. Stylus

The genre-bending festival from the CalArts Center for Experiments in Art, Information and Technology returns with two concerts that each run from abstract reveries to flat-out sonic raucousness. John Wiese, founding member of the concrète grindcore band Sissy Spacek, opens the fest to crackling effect, followed by Peruvian-born avant-garde turntablist Maria Chavez, who uses new and broken needles (“pencils of sound”) and distressed vinyl to spin brooding webs of electroacoustic sound. The night concludes with composer Marcus Schmickler, of Pluramon pop fame, and two newly revised works of surround-sound computer music derived from astrophysical data. The second program kicks off with electronics and laptop interpenetrations by Better Than Future, comprising Casey Anderson, Scott Cazan and Elisabeth McMullin. Next up is a multimedia performance by Steve Roden that ruminates on desert landscapes outside Marfa, Tex., and the minimalist forms of Donald Judd through juxtapositions of field recordings, live improvisation, graphic notation, acoustic objects, electronics and video. The festival’s smashing finale arrives courtesy of Bloody Claws, aka Carla Bozulich, a sound artist who works in numerous impromptu formats and who has toured and recorded extensively with the Geraldine Fibbers, Scarnella and Evangelista. She appears alongside a very special guest.
