Tom Chiu (New York) Wednesday 11
Ping pong effects, angular amplitudes, registral retrogrades, timbral topology, and emotive extremes all mesh into one in the blender of sonic ideas; varied velocities throughout; violin and other sound-producing accessories included

Michael Evans and Susan Hefner (New York) Friday 13
Round Square: Escapees from the usual musician/dancer roles improvise duets moving objects through space – using a washing machine guts drum, wood, skins, aluminum bowls, the back of a dryer, random sheet metal, pots and pans, and various motorized homemade instruments, sound makes movement make sound; video collaborator Nelson Simon

TOITURE (Canada) Saturday 14
Toiture is a Montreal-based duo collaboration that presents a sound performance for bass clarinet, percussions and an installation of small motors fixed on different instruments; between a composed and an improvised playing, their work creates an interaction between the human and motorized feel that melds together in a surprising orchestration; they will invite the live video artist Katherine Liberovskaya as a guest to join them for the second half

Chris McIntyre (New York) Sunday 15
Brooklyn-based composer/performer Chris McIntyre brings together two current projects, UllU and TILT Brass, for a special evening of collaborative music making; the first half features UllU, the ecstatic noise duo project of McIntyre and percussionist Dave Shively (Either/Or); for the second half, a 6-piece compliment of TILT Brass joins the duo to perform works composed by McIntyre in collaboration with Shively (featuring the latter’s innovative use of drums and metal as feedback instruments); UllU is Chris McIntyre (trombone, Nord Lead 2, percussion) and David Shively (feed back percussion, analog organ); TILT Brass at EI is Gareth Flowers, Tim Leopold on trumpet, Jen Baker and Will Lang on trombone, and James Rogers on contrabass trombone

Lea Bertucci (New York) Monday 16
A composer, improvisor and sound artist who works with the Bass Clarinet in an electro-acoustic context; her preparation of the instrument hinges on sustained tones created by pitched feedback from two mics placed inside the chamber of the horn; through the use of extended technique, she is able to create a dense yet diverse sonic palette with sounds generated from creative misuse of her tools; a harsh tape collage of prepared piano, vibraphone and metal objects augments the two improvisational compositions she will present this evening

Bob Bellerue (New York) Tuesday 17
Performs improvised free-noise within resonating/feedback systems, using most of the following: amplified whisk, janky wind organ, ultra-slack’d hollow body guitar, buzina, apito, gambuh suling, voice, radio, cassette tape, Supercollider programming, and electronics

Our programs are supported by the New York State Council on the Arts, The David & Sylvia Teitelbaum Fund, Inc, the Aaron Copland Fund for Music, and the Phaedrus Foundation
