Courtney Brown’s Sidewalk Tzara --> experimental absurdity
presents
QWFWQ
Andrea Pensado - electronics /Greg Kowalski - video (Krakow, Poland)
+Brian S. Ellis - poet

qwfwq
Composer and sound artist Andrea Pensado teamed up with digital artist Greg Kowalski in Krakow, Poland, in 1997 to form Qfwfq duo. The duo's main concern has been live sound-image interaction and the use of movement to articulate complex sounds and digital visual material. Their work is highly performatic and often involves the use of sensors and/or motion tracking devices. The elements of Qfwfq’s artistic language are: interactivity, which is treated as an expressive parameter in itself, projected images, electronic sound, voice, movements and / or actions.

Brian S. Ellis
is a poet who performs writing of his own devising. He has been reading in the New England area for four years, and has been touring nationally for two. This includes but is not limited to several local and national slam poetry competitions. His first full book of poems was published in two thousand eight with Write Bloody Books. He has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize twice.

April Ranger, spoken word poetry

April Ranger is perhaps best known in Boston as the winner of Emerson
College's Nicole DusFresne Playwriting award, but she became an almost
instant Cambridge favorite when she began reading regularly on the
Cantab open mic. Since day one, her vivid, original imagery has been
eliciting longing sighs from our audience, making her the local master
of the Oh-I-Wish-I-Had-Written-That poem.

Todd Brunel
Friday 4 September @ OUTPOST, 8pm $5/10
VORTEX series for new & improvised music presents:
Brunel/Fieldman/Avalone

Garzone.

A local freelance artist and multi-instrumentalist, Julee also performs with the New England Skyscraper conducted by Lawrence Butch Morris. Check out a video of Julee here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z-1dpcm54Aw

Saturday 5 September @ Outpost, 8:00pm $10 or b/o
Garrison Fewell / Eric Hofbauer Duo

Garrison Fewell - guitar, slide, sticks, bells and percussion
Eric Hofbauer - guitar, metal box, sticks and percussion

The duo's latest release, "The Lady of Khartoum", is an eclectic series of duets inspired by the deeper roots of jazz in the music of West Africa, Persia and the Arabic-Islamic world that juxtaposes ancient traditions with the language and techniques of contemporary improvisation.

Most of their duets are completely improvised and reference such diverse elements as Congolese mythology, Delta blues, Sun Ra, a muezzin’s call to prayer and the sonorities of traditional instruments such as the oud, kora and African thumb piano. The duo also plays original compositions as well as interpretations of music by Thelonious Monk and John Tchicai.

The duo is also featured in Garrison's newest project, the Variable Density Sound Orchestra with a CD on Creative Nation Music. A 6 piece band featuring trumpeter Roy Campbell, Jr, and Italian reedman Achille Succi, the VDSO has a newer but as yet unreleased recording that expands to a nonet and adds trombonist Steve Swell and saxophonist Kelly Roberge to the mix with double basses John Voigt and Dmirty Ishenko powered by drummer Miki Matsuki.

In keeping the Variable Density theme, Garrison and Eric will improvise their way through the evening and play some tunes from their recordings with the larger ensemble. Yes Folks, they will play ALL the parts of nine instruments simultaneously on just TWO GUITARS! (Well, sometimes they throw in a third guitar, but only four hands).
