NMPERIGN
bhob rainey, soprano saxophone
greg kelley, trumpet

"For me, there is nothing to be called 'minimal' in their music, in their choice of low and dangerously weak sounds. It would be nonsense to call this music 'minimal'; on the contrary, their way of making music refines our senses and gives precision to a double movement of internalization and openmindedness. So space is opened and landmarks disappear."
-Philippe Alen, _Improjazz_

Britton Powell is a composer and performer with HUME, based in Washington D.C.

Thursday, 4 December @ Outpost, 8pm $10 or b/o
Courtney Brown presents

features:
COURTNEY BROWN
with ALTAIRA

ALTAIRA
James Borchers - percussion, hyperkalimba
Christian Gentry - chordophones, boomboxes
Peter McMurray - saxophone, whistles, ocarina
Roth Michaels - laptop, melodica, miscellany

Formed in Waltham, MA, Altaira is a group of composer-performers interested in improvisation and electronic music. We perform both our own music and improvisational/aleatoric/intuitive "repertoire" by other composers from the past 60-odd years. Recent performances include a memorial concert series of intuitve music by Karlheinz Stockhausen and a collaborative performance with musicians from Queens College.
Courtney Brown has long harbored aspirations of becoming an Edward Gorey heroine, but her attempts have thus far been foiled. In lieu of her unlikely but tragic demise, she makes strange dark music and fiddles with electronics. Her solo act, Every Night I Lose Control, explores the danger of performance and ultimately exposes the vulnerabilities of its performer. Her works are heavily influenced by tango, Weimar cabaret, flamenco, and early goth rock, and often cross into performance art.

She has performed her solo cabaret act up and down the east coast, including New York, Boston, Providence, Baltimore, and Washington, DC. Her compositions have been featured in the Chosen Vale Trumpet Seminar, the Festival of New Musics, the Boston CyberArts Festival, SEAMUS, and more. In 2008, her work "Places in Time become Magnetic" was selected for inclusion in the Vox Novus 60x60 project. Additionally, she has received mention in the Boston Globe and NHPR. She currently resides in Brooklyn, New York.

+ Sarah Riggs.
+IsAbelle Garron

Damon Krukowski is an American musician and publisher. He was one of the founding members and the drummer for the band Galaxie 500. His drumwork with Galaxie 500 received widespread praise for its "simmering presence of jazz classicism"[1]

After Galaxie 500's demise due to guitarist Dean Wareham leaving the band, he went on to play drums in Magic Hour, with Galaxie 500's bassist Naomi Yang, Wayne Rogers and Kate Biggar. After Magic Hour, Krukowski and Yang performed as a duo under the name Damon and Naomi. He also runs the Exact Change Press with Naomi Yang - a book publisher specializing in Dada and Surrealist literature based out of Cambridge, MA.


Isabelle Garron
(b. 1968) is a younger generation French poet who teaches in Paris. She is the author of Qu'il faille (Editions Flammarion 2007), Face devant contre (Editions Flammarion 2002), Déferlage II (Editions Les Cahiers de la Seine 2002), and Le corps échéant (Editions Les Cahiers de la Seine 2000). Garron has also participated as poet and/or editor in various French journals, including Petite, Action Poétique, Action restreinte, Rehauts, and La Polygraphe. English translations of her poetry have appeared in Double Change, 1913: a journal of forms, and Verse. The chapbook Face Before Against, in Sarah Riggs's translation, was released by Seeing Eye Books in 2005. Garron's interest in Pierre Reverdy gave rise to a publication of La Lucarne Ovale in its original form (Théâtre Typographique 2001). She is a regular participant with Jean Daive in the France Culture radio broadcast, "Peinture Fraiche" ("Wet Paint") on contemporary art.


Sarah Riggs
is a poet, translator, and visual artist.

Bird Fly Yellow
+ "Low Road"


“Bird Fly Yellow”
Joe Moffett - trumpet / Dan Blacksberg - trombone / Dave Flaherty - drums / Daniel Durham - bass
Bird Fly Yellow is a quartet whose sound is like watching the final scene of Last of the Mohicans — highly dramatic, though you can’t believe you stuck around for the whole movie. Their sound can also be likened to watching a rainbow over Kansas City implode. The group swings violently, with shifts in feel even its members don’t expect. Bird Fly Yellow hails from Philly and Boston, so they are likely under-rehearsed.

opening:
"Low Road"
Ruth Lepson - poet
Eric Lane - keys
Noah Preminger - sax


Based out of the Northeast United States, poet Ruth Lepson, saxophonist Noah Preminger, and keyboardist Eric Lane formed Low Road, a group that sets Lepson’s poetry to music written and performed by Preminger and Lane. The repertoire includes a diverse selection of songs containing strict structure as well as very open, free form. Lepson is the current poet-in-residence at New England Conservatory. Preminger and Lane are recent graduates of the school and frequently perform in the Boston and New York areas.

Ruth Lepson:
I'm poet-in-residence at NEC, have been performing with musicians in recent yrs, & Low Road is making a CD of my poems & their music. My books are: Dreaming in Color, Poetry from Sojourner, and Morphology. I've given readings at the Bowery Poetry Club, La Mama, & on NPR's "All Things Considered," & my poems have been in many mags.

Little Mysteries
+ Andrew Eisenberg - solo
+ Peter Bonos Trio


Little Mystery improvises music by drawing upon a vast array of jazz and experimental influences to create a free, spacious and frequently ethereal sound scape. This music is created in part by drawing upon a somewhat unusual line-up of instruments to create music that is both visually and sonically evocative.

Eric Dahlman - Trumpet,
Michael Knoblach - Hat Box Drum Set, Percussion
Blair Raker - Trombone
Jim Warshauer - Contra Alto Clarinet, other reed instruments


Andrew Eisenberg - solo percussion
Andrew plays percussion on an assortment of modified drum parts that he has reduced and eroded thru a process of playing and breaking them. myspace.com/skinnyvinnyjjape

Peter Bonos
Peter Bonos Trio

Peter Bonos - Trumpet, Flugelhorn
Zach Iannazzi - Drums
Jeremy Phloyd Starpoli - Trombone

Peter Bonos
Creative composer, improviser and trumpet player Peter Bonos hails from Santa Rosa, CA and is currently based in Northampton, MA. Active in the areas of collective free improvisation, genre-defying solo playing, minimalist composition, klezmer, rock, electronic, and avant garde music, Bonos is currently a performing member of Zebu, Freylekh Valley Orkestr with Hankus Netsky, and Starpoli, Bonos, and Young. Bonos's solo work explores conceptually motivated modes of performance which exploit the outer boundaries of the trumpet's timbral palette in combination with scalar modes specific to the instrument. His varied body of studio-based recordings explore studio composition and sound collage. The Creative Music Collective of Hampshire College and the Purple House have featured concerts currated by Peter. His live and recorded sound design have been featured in recent works of dance choreography and movement performance. I have been a member of these no longer active groups: Perjokte, Triste Sin Richard, Effecto Partido, Sexually Transmitted People, and The Set Up. I have collaborated with Zebu, Tipsy, Bonedaddy, Red Youth, Jonas Golland, Jonathan Glancy, Matt Mondanile, and many others.

TRIO CHROCH

Omsider skete det !

- debut CD med Trio Chroch " Live at Dexter "

Spontan musik med et smil !

Trio Chroch " Live at Dexter " AACD 1009 blev optaget den 14 januar 2000 foran et oplagt og medlevende publikum, som overgav sig til varmen, humoren, det store engagement og den charmerende drengede facon. Publikum tog Trio Chroch på ordet og deltog i en rejse igennem farverige lydcollager - en rejse, hvor grænser blev brudt og døre blev åbnet til nye musikalske landskaber.

Trio Chroch er et ungt orkester på den danske musikscene, der går nye veje for at komme med et friskt og publikumsvenligt bud på spontan musik - musik skabt i nuet. Ny musik spillet på et højt kunstnerisk niveau, der opstår i en dialog med publikum og omgivelserne. Toner og lyde der taler til alle sanser og sætter fantasien i gang.

Trio Chroch holdt deres ord - der var noget for både øre og øje……

" Trio Chroch spiller musik der ikke plejer at være for alle - for alle ! "

Bo Stief

Friday, 12 September @ OUTPOST - 8pm $10 or b/o
subconsciouscafe presents
from Philadelphia
"SHOT X SHOT"
Dan Scofield - alto sax / Bryan Rogers - tenor / Dan Capecchi - drums / Matt Engle - bass
opening: "The ECTOPLASMIC TRIO" (Cambridge)
John Voigt - bass / Todd Brunel - bass clarinet / Robert Rivera - cello


Shot × Shot is an improvisational acoustic quartet performing original compositions steeped in jazz tradition, but with experimental sensibilities. Formed in 2003, while the members were students at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, has quickly established itself as one of the most groundbreaking bands in one of jazz’s most important cities. On its self-titled debut, the group showcases its compositional dynamism and transcendental vibrancy creating a unique balanced sound that is often missing in improvisational jazz.

Fellow Philadelphian, jazz critic and author Francis Davis hears the band’s vitality. “Something fresh and exciting is unfolding in jazz, and these talented young Philadelphians are doing their part to speed it along,” writes Davis. “It’s been ages since I’ve heard a debut recording this adventurous and assured.”

Usually in jazz, youth is seen as a liability, but for Shot × Shot the opposite is true. Having been exposed to and performed all sorts of eclectic music, Shot × Shot infuse their music with diverse modern influences and a daring spirit, creating an experimental mix of sounds and structures.

With Dan Scofield (alto) and Bryan Rogers (tenor) on dueling saxophone ballasted by Dan Capecchi (drums) and Matt Engle (bass), the band’s multi-dimensional, layered sound relies on each musician’s unique contribution. Both Scofield and Engle are key members of Sonic Liberation Front, the African percussion-infused jazz group, whose 2004 High Two album Ashé A Go-Go, was widely praised by the Village Voice, Jazz Times, The Wire, among others. Scofield is also a member of the noise-improv band Wolf Vs. and performs, alongside Rogers, in Bobby Zankel’s large ensemble. Capecchi, a recent transplant from Minnesota, is a former member of indie rock band Triangle and the folk ensemble Jackaroo, now also plays in the Jeff Baumeister Quartet.

Shot × Shot is reminiscent of Human Feel, the band that launched the careers of Chris Speed, Jim Black, Andrew d’Angelo, and Kurt Rosenwinkel when they were music students in Boston. Similarly, Shot × Shot unites unique voices who are poised to be important musicians individually and collectively.

“BUSH-CHENEY: LOUNGE FORCE”

with Ian Maxwell MacKinnon and Eric Zinman

BUSH AND CHENEY INVADE CAMBRIDGE WITH NEW LOUNGE ACT

CAMBRIDGE, MA: Riding out the final year of their historic administrations, President Bush and Vice-President Cheney will unveil a new musical project in Cambridge Sept. 13-14 at Outpost 186.

“BUSH-CHENEY: LOUNGE FORCE” will be hosted by local operatives Ian Maxwell MacKinnon and Eric Zinman. The show, featuring President Bush on guitar and Mr. Cheney on keyboards, is a response to those who would criticize our leaders as “lame ducks.” The act includes Bush-Cheney compositions such as "Let Me Be Misunderstood" and "The Sunny Side of the Dark Side of the Street." John McCain gets a special tribute from fellow fighter pilot Bush (with Cheney as co-pilot) in a momentous rewrite of "Heaven in your Eyes" from the movie "Top Gun."

“The President and Vice-President have just been recharging their batteries, and the power that comes from a little R&R is what ‘Lounge Force’ is all about,” MacKinnon says. Come witness the birth of a new musical career for the leaders of the free world, due to leave office on Jan. 21. Bush and Cheney have been represented by MacKinnon and Zinman in three previous plays: “A Bush-Cheney Christmas,” “The Apotheosis of George W. Bush,” and “The Bush-Cheney ‘Top Gun’ Focus Group.”

Critics have raved: “The show was hilarious”(BOSTON HERALD). “Pick of the Week”-DNC, 2004 (BOSTON PHOENIX). “Provocative, unsettling humor”(BOSTON GLOBE). MacKinnon (Bush) won a national theater manifesto contest judged by Tony Kushner and others with an entry called “Elect Better Actors.” Zinman (Cheney) is an acclaimed jazz pianist. Their archives as Bush and Cheney are at www.thebushcheneytopgunfocusgroup.com

BADAL ROY
Roy began playing the tabla at age 10 or 11, studying with his uncle. After coming to New York, he began performing with Steve Gorn at a Manhattan restaurant called Raga, eventually attracting the attention of Miles Davis. Davis invited Roy to join his group, and he recorded on Davis's albums On the Corner (1972), Big Fun (1969-72; released 1974), and Get Up with It (1970-74). Roy subsequently performed and recorded with many leading jazz musicians, including Davis, Dave Liebman, Pharoah Sanders, John McLaughlin, Herbie Hancock, Herbie Mann, Pat Metheny, Lester Bowie, Airto Moreira, Charlie Haden, Purna Das Baul, Yoko Ono, and Ornette Coleman (playing in Coleman's electric band Prime Time). In the 1990s Roy began performing with the Brazilian guitar duo Duofel. He has also collaborated with Ken Wessel and Stomu Takeishi in a fusion trio named Alankar. They currently have one album entitled Daybreak.

LOW ROAD
+
Liana Stillman Trio


LOW ROAD :

Ruth Lepson - poetry / Noah Preminger - sax / Eric Lane - keys

Based out of the Northeast United States, poet Ruth Lepson, saxophonist Noah Preminger, and keyboardist Eric Lane formed Low Road, a group that sets Lepson’s poetry to music written and performed by Preminger and Lane. The repertoire includes a diverse selection of songs containing strict structure as well as very open, free form. Lepson is the current poet-in-residence at New England Conservatory. Preminger and Lane are recent graduates of the school and frequently perform in the Boston and New York areas.

Ruth Lepson:
I'm poet-in-residence at NEC, have been performing with musicians in recent yrs, & Low Road is making a CD of my poems & their music. My books are: Dreaming in Color, Poetry from Sojourner, and Morphology. I've given readings at the Bowery Poetry Club, La Mama, & on NPR's "All Things Considered," & my poems have been in many mags.

Liana Stillman Trio :
Liana Stillman - voice, composition
Sam Swan - violin
Dean Capper - cello
Liana Stillman is a singer/songwriter who brings an eclectic mix of influences to her music, from classics to cabaret. Don't let her small stature fool you- she has a powerhouse voice, with biting lyrics to match. Backed by cello and violin, her audience finds themselves lulled by the gorgeous melodies, hardly noticing that she's singing about strangling someone with their own intestines.

Geezeworld presents jazz vocalist
MELISSA KASSEL
Phil Grenadier - trumpet / Bruno Raberg - bass / Tom Zicarelli - piano
“A powerful, emotional artist…she alters themes until they become paraphrases of the original melodies, employing microtones in the process. She brings all of her, by jazz standards, wide range into play. She swoops, she bends notes, she lays behind the beat, then catches up with it. Dynamically, and texturally her work contains a good deal of contrast, sometimes she shouts, she growls, sometimes she almost whispers the lyrics...she’s among the best jazz vocalists to emerge in years.”
--HARVEY PEKAR 90.9 WBUR BOSTON’S NPR NEWS STATION.

Music and performance art from Baltimore with
"Los Tenedores"

Perform some, tour some, foursome! Los Tenedores are troubadours of the modern age, present to commit individual and collaborative acts of passion. A pronged quartet, these escape-from-Baltimore artists alternate reality by being fully participatory... they seek truth, joy and reflection with each other, and you! All this born from the urgent nature of life and art -- language, performance and social. A conscious action decision, they create an abstractly tangible experience, designed to bring water forth from stone, transform overgrown souls into manicured infants, break down misery into revelry, and turn aurora borealis into crystal heaven; anything can happen and the senses are hyper-real. Through divergent paths, Theresa Columbus, Andy Herschberger, Freda Mohr and Elisa Urtiaga converge to comprise Los Tenedores. Los agarradores, Los Tenedores, agarran de la presente. The graspers, The Forks (The Possessors), take hold of (grasp) the present. "It was a passionate moment we were groping for..."
