NOTE : SUNDAY LIFE DRAWING WITH DAVID LEE is back! Contact: dleeway1116@hotmaildotcom
OUTPOST now hosts life drawing classes, Sunday mornings 10am - 12:30pm

Each and every Sunday Mick Goodrick and I host a meeting of the art worlds. 3 hours of drawing and our live improvisational music. We call it right brain sanctuary. It's quite amazing and indescribable how these sessions, with a live model, great friendly artists, musicians, music and chocolate all combine to offer the deepest insights into the creative process, how art and music inform one another.

In Momentum Series                   

1.        Tino D’Agostino - elec.bass + Sergio Bellotti - drums

2.        Jorrit Dijkstra - Alto Sax  + Anastasiya Dumma - guitar

3.       Andres Fonseca - percussion + Nicolas Castañeda - harp

4.       Giuseppe Paradiso - drums + Gabriela Martina - voice

Experience improvisation  through the performance of an eclectic  and highly talented array of artists in its purest form, with no other rules than being in the moment.

In Momentum Series (IMS) is led by Swiss vocalist Gabriela Martina and Italian drummer Giuseppe Paradiso. IMS was created as an opportunity for musicians to focus on creativity and development of their own natural musical voice and language, without any compromise. The series is based on free improvisation and extemporaneous compositions. In a constantly growing community, different musicians from different cultures and backgrounds, break boundaries to create on the spot, in a very inspiring and supportive environment. In a society, where musicians are often influenced in their creative process by external factors such as the music business/industry, music education, music categorization etc., the purpose of this series is to create an environment to enhance freedom of creativity through improvisation. Deconstructing forms, musical ‘rules’ and genres, lead us back to the passion of making music as genuinely as a child at his/her first approach with the instrument.

Naked Roots Conducive

Natalia Steinbach - violin, voice, songs
Valerie Kuehne - cello, voice, songs

+Robert Rivera  - solo cello (opening set)

The roots are deities and the deities are roots. They are naked. They are birth and rebirth. They embody the sacred moment

Naked Roots Conducive is the much anticipated collaboration between violinist Natalia Steinbach and cellist Valerie Kuehne, as well as a phrase uttered by Ms. Steinbach in her sleep. A classical swan song thickened by vocal harmonies and aesthetic disillusionment, Naked Roots Conducive fuses Performance Art with hungry Post-Romanticism and Acoustic Noise.

There is also the truth of The Cult of Professional Madness.

The New England Translators Association presents

The Translator’s Voice, a series of readings

Terry Gallagher : “Japanese book” is a disguise

It was little more than 150 years ago that Japan reopened to the West, and while renowned for its own unique style, Japan also has a pronounced reputation for what is now termed “cultural appropriation.”

Self-Reference Engine – the first book by Toh EnJoe, a Ph.D. physicist who won Japan’s prestigious Akutagawa Prize in 2012—is packed with allusions from what seems to be all nations, in all centuries, from Plato to Flatland to the Singularity. This is not really a Japanese book. It is a work of world literature that happens to have been written in Japanese.

In an interview with the journal Asymptote, EnJoe said, “my writings naturally tend to resemble translations.” While most people would not hesitate to identify Self-Reference Engine as a Japanese book, the first reaction of many Japanese is akin to: “What language is that? It’s not Japanese.”

EnJoe has made the career transition from scientist to writer. Self-Reference Engine is an exploration of quantum mechanics in the idiom of pulp fiction with literary aspirations. 20th-century physics is still difficult for laymen to grok, and few authors have attempted to make this pill easier to swallow. In this book, one of the many questions EnJoe asks is, “What if computers took control of space-time—and broke it?”

About Terry Gallagher

From his home on Cape Cod, Terry Gallagher has been a freelance translator for over a decade. His work is mainly reports for investment banks, and he also translated the Bank of Japan’s definitive tome on its operations. Since the demise of Lehman Brothers, he has diversified into legal translation. But he also translates “fun stuff.” This year, his translation of Self-Reference Engine by Akutagawa Prize winner Toh Enjoe won a Philip K. Dick Award Special Citation. Other projects in a lighter vein include Be With You by Takuji Ichikawa, the manga edition of the same title, and short stories (The Stationmaster by Jiro Asada, ZOO by Otsuichi, and contributions to the anthologies Monkey Brain Sushi, Monkey Business Vol. 4, the Penguin Book of Erotic Stories by Women, Speculative Japan 2, and The Future is Japanese). Before turning to translation, he spent 15 years as a financial journalist for Reuters and Dow Jones in Tokyo, Bonn, and New York. Originally from Brooklyn, he graduated from Brown University.

All Translator's Voice readings are approved for 2 ATA Continuing Education credits
