Found!

  #

(SCENE) Metrospace in partnership with Found Magazine announces the opening of its newest exhibition, "FOUND!" which will be unveiled on Wednesday, March 30.  "FOUND!" explores the recovery and reuse of objects that have been lost, misplaced, discarded or left behind.

Local and national artists participating in "FOUND!" use found materials in unique ways to construct their artwork.  Los Angeles native Kelly Lynn Jones uses fabric and collage to create illustrations.  Scott Hocking of Detroit created his art piece using recovered negatives that he found in an abandoned house.  Ann Arbor based Davy Rothbart and Found Magazine have become an international phenomenon over the past year. Rothbart will share numerous amazing finds that strangers have sent in from across the globe. Doug Coombe of Ann Arbor will use photographs of abandoned warehouses and buildings in Detroit, evoking the beauty found in destruction.  The Portland, Ore. based Suite B Artist Collective employed a search, recovery, and create cycle to make art through found images and objects.  The Suite B members participating in "FOUND!" Include East Lansing natives Jen Kruch and Josh Kermiet, as well as Oregon's James Boulton, and Corey Lunn.

International ArtExpo

  #
International ArtExpo
I've been getting emails (spam?) from the following organization... they sound quite interesting though, especially how they formed.

>>
International ArtExpo<<

ArtExpo is an international art event. Its object is to use new technologies to globalize the language of art, to connect the conceptual points of contact of artists working in every part of the world, all united in the thick plot of the world net.

Does this sound familiar?

>>
A group of artists called ArtExpo is formed on the internet. 23 artists decide to change the way they work. They decide to be independent.  ArtExpo is set up as an itinerant encounter. No headquarters, no fixed address, no bonds. <<

It's worthwhile checking their events and call for entries periodically. This might be something OCC would want to be involved in, especially because of the similar foundation of both groups.

Visit the website.

A Concert to Honor and Aid Victims of the December 26 Tsunami

  #

From OCC member
V.A. Gayathri:

Wednesday, January 26, 2005
7:00 PM
Rackham Auditorium, The University of Michigan

The Centers for South and Southeast Asian Studies and the International Institute at the University of Michigan, and the Department of Asian Languages and Cultures, with the support of other university programs, will present a concert of South and Southeast Asian dance and music to honor and aid victims of the earthquake and tsunami on December 26, 2004.

One month to the day after this tragedy, a distinguished group of Asian artists will come together to mark its effect on our community and our world. The principal performers are world-class professional dancers and musicians from Indonesia and India, all of them visitors in residence at U-M. Didik Nini Thowok, superb Indonesian dancer, V.A. Gayathri, a prominent Bharatha Natyam dancer, Pamardi, a master dancer and teacher from Indonesia, and Jun Wakabayashi, a master Butoh dancer from Japan will be performing. Their performances, born of ancient cultures shaped in part by millennia of earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, monsoons and floods, will serve as an observance for the University and Ann Arbor communities of lives lost and changed. The concert will also offer an opportunity for members of the audience to help with relief efforts through contributions to Oxfam, which is doing excellent work on the ground in South and Southeast Asia. The program will be opened by the U-M Gamelan Ensemble, playing "Wilujeng," a traditional Javanese piece that often begins gamelan concerts in Java.

The concert is free and open to the public. Contributions in cash or check will be accepted for Oxfam-USA at the door. Suggested contributions are $5 or higher for students, and $10 or higher for others. Rehearsals for the concert will be open to the public between 1 pm and 5 pm, and contributions will be accepted at that time too.


For more information, please contact the Centers for South and Southeast Asian Studies at 734.764.0452, by email at csseas@umich.edu, or see our web pages at www.umich.edu/~iinet/csas and www.umich.edu/~iinet/cseas.

guide to djing, covering the essentials: technique, gear, perks and etiquette.

by amy kellner


You know that thing called DJing? Playing records in bars or at stupid art openings for money? Guess what DJing is? The biggest fucking bullshit con of all time! People who get over as DJs are making the easiest money ever, because they've convinced every PR person and club owner in the world that they're doing something only a few natural-born geniuses can do. It's laughable. A 70-year-old blind Ethiopian leper with 10 broken fingers can "spin" just as well as any B-list celebrity at any instore party for some gay snowboarding jeans company. I promise[...]

I've been making loads of supplementary income by DJing for a few years now, and I can barely even scratch my own back. All you really need is a CD burner, Kazaa, and passably cool taste in music. Here, I'll tell you all about my life as a party DJ[...]

herbert

  #

musician/sound artist matthew herbert's (aka herbert, doctor rockit, mh bigband, radioboy) doesn't quite fit in the same categories as many of his contemporaries. though his music is often considered "electronic," it's quite undefineable, often using no electronics at all, and is steeped heavily in his jazz background. his approach to his craft, compositional methods, work and personal ethics, and ultimately his creative output are singularily different, and are worth a closer look, whether or not you are familiar with his recordings.  you can read essays, track notes, manifestos, biographies, and political rhetoric on his site for hours...
take a look at his website, magic and accident.

to download the free album mechanics of destruction, a critical look at multinational corporations and the effect they have on society, released by radioboy, one of herberts many monikers, click here.

herbert in allmusic guide.

also quite interesting apart from the music he creates is matthew herbert's compositional manifesto:
PERSONAL CONTRACT FOR THE COMPOSITION OF MUSIC, a strict guide for writing his music, which forbids the use of drum machines, factory presets, the sampling of others work, and requires that all sounds and equipment used must be notated and made available to the public (among other things).

Fourth Tuesdays at Magdalena's Teahouse

  #
Tim Lane (www.theatticwhichisdesire.com) and Aaron Curtner (Luddite) have organized an open mic poetry night at the newly opened performance space, Magdalena's Teahouse (in the 2000 block of Michigan Ave., Lansing).  Owner Miko Fossum has opened the space as a Turkish-style teahouse, decorated in reds and golds and amply furnished with couches and floor cushions (sorry, no hookahs) as a place where musicians and poets can gather and hone their craft on the ears of receptive audiences.  Her offerings include teas and a small selection of baked goods, so your gracious compliance with a small cover charge (usually $5) is what makes this sort of thing possible.  She also holds a farmer's market out front each Sunday.

Tim and Aaron hope to have a rotating cast of hosts for the poetry open mics, which are held on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 7:30.  The first one was a great success, with high caliber works read by new and established poets alike.  If you are interested in hosting or participating, contact Tim via his website (above).

There has been a recent upsurge of art-oriented businesses along the Michigan Ave. corridor, including Carmen Paradise's (bassist for Calliope and solo artist) Paradise Salon and Art Gallery, and the freshly opened Dancing Crane Fine Art Gallery.  Even the venerable Green Door Lounge is under new ownership, offering the same blues- and bluegrass-based music in a much less smoky environment, with windows.  It's good to see this neighborhood transform.

Anyone know of other events at Magdalena's?

dTroit to manchester

  #



Manchester's Urbis Museum, the museum of contemporary urban culture, presents dTroit, a tour of the art, music, culture and urban vibe of the city also known as Motown. 
Once a model of the modern industrial city, the collapse of the automobile industry, the 1967 race riots and the ensuing 'white flight' from the city to the suburbs gave birth to a centre of urban decay and desolation. Within this failed utopia a new generation of artists and musicians developed. They are the cultural product of the city affectionately known as 'Motown', 'The Motor City', 'Techno City', or simply 'The D' and their work explores the unique urban environment, social history and cultural memory of the city of Detroit.
DTroit is curated by Trevor Schoonmaker.
The exhibition originated at
Gigantic Artspace, New York, and has been expanded for Urbis, Manchester.
DTroit features work by: Susan Cook, Doug Coombe, Mark Dancey, Andrew Dosunmu, Thom Klepach, Tyree Guyton, Kenjii, Thomas Rapai, Kyong Park and Mark Powell.
The exhibition also features a playlist of over twenty hours of music which has come out of Detroit in the last forty years, researched and assembled by legendary music journalist Mike Rubin. Tickets £5 Concessions £3.50

OCC's second annual weekend retreat, Fort Unit-Sun, will be on fifteen wooded acres outside the small village of Fife Lake, Michigan, late August or early September.  We hope to time things so that we are there in the midst of northern Michigan's dramatic autumn color change.  Stay tuned for more details.

Our host will be the lovely and talented mixed-media artist Nick Fisher, who we know for his wise and twisted take on the surreal and the fantastic.  Recently, Nick has also been producing some great poster designs:
