Dispatx Art Collective


Dispatx Art Collective are pleased to announce the publication of our fourth edition - Abandonment. This edition contains 14 works comprising narrative and poetry, essay, photography, oil painting and sculpture, and video.

To speak of abandonment suggests a withdrawal or relinquishment of influence, the exposure of a physical or social structure to the dereliction of time or a cessation of protection. It can also describe a state in which one is given over to forces beyond oneself – the extreme highs and lows of the human condition. Above all, the act of abandonment implies transfer – something orphaned is passed to another controlling agent, something is gained.

The editorial discusses each of the works in detail : in addition, all archive issues can now be searched by work title, description, and artist details. For more details, come to

The Little Bang Theory


FRANK PAHL ( is one of the most distinctive and charming voices in contemporary American music. He has received numerous awards, grants, and residencies for his innovative compositions using homemade automatic instruments. Inspired by the works of Trimpin and Pierre Bastien, Pahl began to delve deeply into the creation of automatic instruments, using these instruments as the fundamental foundation of his compositions. His work has included pieces for automatic string quartet, automatic doorbell quartet, and bicycle quartet. Pahl has received over 60 commissions for theater, film and dance and his music appears on over 60 releases. His latest band, Little Bang Theory, is named after the essay of the same title by the improvising musician Frederic Rzewski. Rzewski describes an approach to music well suited to improvisation. Basically each note can be seen as a little bang, with the possibility of introducing a new universe of music. Though the band performs on toy instruments the music runs the gamut from improvisation to toypop to soundtrack-inspired music...not easy to to see. Toy Suite #2 was made possible by a 2005 Meet the Composer grant.

Frank Pahl's Little Bang Theory with special guest Nick Schillace.
Sunday, November 13 at the University of Michigan Museum of Art
8pm - Free!
This show is sponsered by UMMA and WCBN.

525 South State Street
Ann Arbor, MI 48109

NICK SCHILLACE ( is a Detroit area composer, teacher, and musicologist exploring what it means to be an American musician. In 2002 he completed a graduate thesis on the late guitarist John Fahey, and utilizes Fahey's self-described style of syncopated "American Primitive" fingerstyle guitar as the foundation for his own technique. This style, based on early forms of blues, folk, and old-time music, provides the perfect foundation for larger and more expansive musical compositions incorporating a wide range of his own idiosyncratic influences. He has been touring extensively both locally and nationally since releasing his debut acoustic instrumental album "Box Canyon" in June 2005. He also writes and performs with the groups indoorpark and Big Lake Trawler.

"Box Canyon is a collection of nine pensive and frequently
beautifully played songs for acoustic guitar"
- Steve Byrne,  Detroit Free Press

“Nick paints melodies as a painter . . . his techniques
are solid and the music is engaging. He has his own signature.”
-Henk te Veldhuis . . . Bridge Guitar Reviews

“ . . . inspired melodic evolutions. recommended.”
-Gerald Van Waes . . . Psychedelic Folk

“Nick Schillace's solo acoustic guitar music is propelled by a command
of the traditional and fueled by an expression of a truly original voice."
-Jon Moshier, music coordinator/on-air host WDET-FM Detroit Public Radio

Ohmigawd! It's Oh My God, October 28th


Oh My God
with Starling Electric
and The Fluoride Program
Friday, October 28

Doors - 9 pm, Show - 10 pm

$8 for 21+, $10 for 18+

At Lansing's Temple Club
500 East Grand River Ave.

"Chicago rock trio oh my god is powered by overdriven organ, nasty bass guitar, pounding drums and some surprising pop hooks. Imagine the Doors, if they'd been on SST, or Freddy Mercury fronting a punk band. No guitars here--they've been co-opted by the organ-and-Leslie combo." --

"Sounds like a Christian-rock band? It's not. But oh my god doesn't have a notarized contract on file at the devil's office, either. THIS CHICAGO ROCK BAND IS NOT AFFILIATED WITH GOD OR SATAN..." --

I've lost count now how many times I've had the earthly pleasure of seeing Oh My God play their sanctified organ-bass-drums rock and roll. They are consumate showmen, fiercely talented musicians, and really fun people to hang out with, too. You should come to the show!

[or catch them at a gig near you]

Artist Video Series


Artist video series

Reading about artists can be moving. Seeing their work can be inspiring and, at times, can provoke us to action. Hillman Curtis, in his video series, allows us to experience leading designers through sound and motion, uncovering what it is about them that inspires him. Curtis profiles such  luminaries as Stefan Sagmiester, Billy Bragg, Paula Scher, Badly Drawn Boy and Pentagram as well as profiling some of his favorite movies like LA Doce Vita and Spinal Tap.

Curtis has even more videos on his site. See the entire series

Hurricane Benefit This Monday


There will be a Hurricane Relief Benefit at Lansing's Temple Club this Monday, September 12. Lansing musicians are donating their time and talents to raise much-needed funds for our people in New Orleans who have lost so much. 100% of the proceeds from the door will go to Red Cross efforts to transport, feed, clothe, and shelter the thousands affected by this national disaster. If you're in town, please come out and support this effort -- it's sure to be a night of great music, but let's remember the seriousness of the situation and our responsibility to help our neighbors in Louisiana who've been hit so hard. Give generously.

The show starts at 8:00 pm.  The line-up includes John Wesley Harding Overdrive, the Failers, The Gentleman Callers, The Hop-Ups, Eric Kelly and the Dirty Johns, The Pantones, Mike Vasas and The Beasts of Burden, Firewheel Handshake, Hall & Morgan, and Stephen Leonard.  Special thanks to Joel from The Gentleman Callers for getting Stargrazer LLC involved with the poster design, and to Sam Rose (of the superb Wanderjahr) for being the local sparkplug for Katrina benefit concerts in Lansing.

"02890" Bankley Gallery Show


An exhibition of nine emerging graduate artists based in Belfast. ‘02890’ is a mixed bag.

The artist’s works are not bound to one another; rather they point in differing directions, addressing contemporary subjectivity.

They demonstrate how societies structures and codes are embodied in the urban environment and the vulnerability of the individual played out through a complexity of narratives, sounds and images.

10th September to the 30th September 2005

Private View Friday 9th September 7-9 pm
Open Saturday 10th 12 till 4pm

Other times by appointment on:
07773 369 465 (24hrs in advance)

This show is open to anyone who wishes to participate!  This is not a juried show, just an opportunity for artists and musicians to exhibit their talent.  We welcome all types of creative people, along with their friends and family.

There is a $10 entry fee and a $5 table rental fee. 


Artists may arrive at 10:00am on August 20th to set up their tables.  The Art Market will run from noon until 6pm.  Spaces will be approximately 8ft. wide and will run along South Washington on the sidewalks.  Spaces are first-come, first-serve on the day of the event.  Artists who have special requests for space for a tent or a different exhibit space should indicate that when registering.

Independent Music Sought

It Takes A Village To Make Records, an independently-run music label, seeks tracks for an upcoming, FREE sampler of independent music and soundscapes. ITAV specializes in unique, handcrafted recordings, a hands-off approach to creative control and copyright ownership, and visually stunning graphic design and packaging. ITAV releases are designed to grab potential purchasers from across a room and draw them to your music.

"First-hand Accounts, Theories, and their Repercussions" will act as a calling card for ITAV, rather than a label roster compilation. In that spirit, ITAV seeks music of all forms, from traditional folk to noise. Additionally, songs which demonstrate a strong independent vein are desired, whether that is shown by experimental qualities or simply by the song's lack of slickness. "First-hand Accounts" will contain live tracks, demos and/or alternate versions and home recordings. Tracks are sought from all types of artists, famous or unknown.

Artists will retain full rights to their music. "First-hand Accounts" will be distributed FREE as an educational tool and an example of ITAV's creative expertise. For that reason, ITAV cannot offer compensation for your track, however full credits will be included in the packaging, including songwriting credits, "appears courtesy of..." messages, and/or internet resources.

ITAV is cultivating a diverse artist base for this project and for their emerging catalog. For more information and to submit your tracks, contact

Unleashing The Rock Poster


Here is a recently completed poster design for the Detroit-area indie/rock band Stare Into The Sun. I've always loved the interface between music and graphic design, exemplified by everything from jazz LP covers to the many wonderful rock fliers created by such genius minds as Rick Griffin and Frank Kozik

My goal was to create a poster that reflected the band's aesthetic, while at the same time tempting viewers to steal the poster for their apartment or dorm room walls. Ultimately, getting the band name out there and drawing people to gigs is the purpose of a good poster -- so we communicated extensively to make sure the final design was clearly readable and visually arresting.  This was a quick turnaround project -- Kevin from SITS contacted me on July 4 and the design was mailed July 7!

Check out Stare Into The Sun, The Black Spoons, and Tiny Amps of Corduroy Tuscadero at Hamtramck's Painted Lady (2390 Jacob), this Saturday, July 16 2005.

Dispatx Art Collective :: Scar as Sign


Dispatx Art Collective are pleased to announce the publication of our third edition - Scar as Sign. The works making up this issue explore the theme in a diverse manner, confronting concepts from personal experience and showing their significance in a much broader sense.

Our bodies, relationships and environments are defined by information built up over time, as if there were an implicit will governing what should be preserved. Through dislocations in the storage process, wounds can be generated, and attempts to erase these wounds from our memories give rise to scarring. In their turn, lasting scars are then converted into objects of great significance. To talk of these significations is to talk not only of the object itself but also of all that it signifies. Human memory is thus made up of a tension between defects and the processes undertaken to hide them.

The edition is made up of 13 works in various media including photography, sculpture, sound and poetry. It is the result of 4 months' collaborative development of the theme by 17 different artists, and can be seen at

ANIMAL - DEAF OX *new album*


Hello fellow artists,

I recently finished my new album DEAF OX and posted it on my website for free download at:

This is my way of working around the 'standards' of the music industry.  I don't have any reviews of DEAF OX available yet, I am waiting till September to send promos out to radio and publications.  However, below are a few quotes about my last album SAWN CREATOR, which is also available for free on the same page as DEAF OX.  I had one song from that album on the JOMAS.

"...a deadpan second cousin to Lou Reed, Animal delivers still-wet-paste of rock that is what you thought you were making when you got drunk and loud in your friend’s mom’s garage and put the microphone right up to the speaker. "   -

"...sugar smacks that crackle and pop like Baby's First Casio on Ritalin."  -splendid

My website also has images of my artwork.

A Quarter-Century Celebration


Hello...  hello...

@ Lager House (1254 Michigan Ave. Detroit, MI 48226)
... near ol' Tiger Stadium

Come see me and:

Thes One (of People Under The Stairs)
Starving Artists Crew
DJ House Shoes
DJ Benny Ben
Crate Digga
DJ Superlative

... and more grace the storied rock stage with some glorious hip-hop mischief.

More details to come.  You look really awesome today.

Here's part of the press release:


On August 26th, GAMBIT THE MC (G.A.M.) is having his official 25th birthday celebration at Lager House in Detroit.  The Virgo, whose real birthday is August 30th, will have some of his friends, such as Fat Beats recording artist Starving Artists Crew, perform. 
Detroit is unlike any city in America that has a hip-hop scene.  It is chockfull of folks that consider themselves “masters of ceremony.”  GAMBIT THE MC is no exception, but he has been steadily paying his dues to make himself a household name.  He has done shows all over Michigan, opening for notable underground hip-hop artists like Quannum’s Lyrics Born and Rhymesayers’ Blueprint.
Party patrons should expect a DJ-laden roster, with rap performances by Team Double Stuf Oreo (GAMBIT and DJ Benny Ben) with special guest SelfSays and Starving Artists Crew.  DJs slated to spin are Detroit tastemaker House Shoes, People Under The Stairs’ Thes One, former college radio deejay Benny Ben and up-and-comers Crate Digga and Superlative.
