News Update | Autumn 2010

A few events in October and into November, for me.

“Just prior to his appearance at the Ear to the Earth Festival in NYC, drone pioneer Phill Niblock will pay a visit to the WFMU studios to chat and guest DJ. While his own music is noted for its length and stillness (he does a 6-hour concert at his loft every December), Niblock is a huge fan of early jazz and bebop, and will be bringing some of his favorite high-speed saxophone music to play on the air. “ KG

On Sunday, October 31 2010, 8pm, Phill Niblock and Katherine Liberovskaya will have a set in the Ear to the Earth Festival, at the Frederick Loewe Theatre, NYU, 35 West 4th Street, NYC
Phill Niblock and Katherine Liberovskaya’s Sound Delta +, a live audio/video performance created during the European Sound Delta project — a nomadic art residency, they collected audio and video material for two weeks along the Danube River, from the delta between Romania and Bulgaria and upstream to Russe in Bulgaria. The Sound Delta + performance in this festival will incorporate material from the Danube residency as well as other related
recordings and footage into a live mix.
Michael Fahres is also on this program.

On Friday, October 28, 8pm, at the Greenwich House Music School, 46 Barrow Street, NYC
Kristin Norderval with Katherine Liberovskaya. Matt Rogalsky is also on this program
Kristin Norderval will perform a multi-media work for voice, interactive audio processing and live video processing (Katherine Liberovskaya). Tattooed Ghosts is part of FLUDD – Virtual Polar Icecap Meltdown, a larger work that is inspired by, and uses excerpts from, Dina Von Zweck’s monumental literary work of the same name. Here, melting icecaps are conceived of as a flood of waters releasing the Arctic’s profound secrets. In the final three sections of this work, presented here as Tattooed Ghosts, myth, poetry and song trace the accumulation of ocean contaminants.
