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.

Phill Niblock (intermedia artist) at the DFC

  #

  

Phill Niblock - Intermedia Artist  - at the Detroit Film Center
Tuesday, Feb. 8th


Phill Niblock is an intermedia artist using music, film, photography, video and computers. He makes thick, loud drones of music, filled with microtones of instrumental timbres which generate many other tones in the performance space. Simultaneously, he presents films / videos which look at the movement of people working, or computer driven black and white abstract images floating through time. He was born in Indiana in 1933. Since the mid-60's he has been making music and intermedia performances which have been shown at numerous venues around the world ... Since 1985, he has been the director of the Experimental Intermedia Foundation in New York where he has been an artist/member since 1968. He is the producer of Music and Intermedia presentations at EI since 1973 (about 1000 performances) and the curator of EI's XI Records label. In 1993 he was part of the formation of an Experimental Intermedia organization in Gent, Belgium - EI v.z.w. Gent - which supports an artist-in-residence house and installations there.

...Niblock's films are about movement, particularly the movement of people working. Filmed in non-urban environments in many countries the films look at everyday work, frequently agrarian or marine labor. Movement is treated abstractly without reference to anthropological or sociological meaning. As in the music, a surface slowness is countered by an active, varied texture of rhythm and form of body motion within the frame, the ultimate subject matter of Niblock's films.

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.

Gonna Be a Rock'n'Roll Party Saturday Night: Dykehouse at Mac's Bar

  #

     

I had the privilege of interviewing Mike Dykehouse last week for the free weekly paper Lansing Noise.  Dykehouse will be headlining a bill tomorrow night (Saturday, Dec. 11) at Mac's Bar on Lansing's east side that also includes the Brainiac-esque catharsis of Thunderbirds Are Now!, the electronica/punk stylings of Cincinatti's (apparently NOT broken up) Chalk, and polyrhythmic drumming juggernaut M. Sord.

Dykehouse's music has transformed from glitchy, crunchy "IDM" (his first release was "Dynamic Obsolescence" on Planet Mu) into a nostalgic paean to "shoegazer" rock -- a la My Bloody Valentine, The Stone Roses, Jesus and Mary Chain, even the Cure.  Composed and recorded in his bedroom in Ann Arbor and released on that city's Ghostly International label, "Midrange" (his latest) has gotten everything from unabashed glowing praise to complete slaggings.  In my book, that usually bodes well for an artist -- if the music critics can't agree, it's probably good.  Get real jobs!

Anyway, he was a gracious and interesting interview, and apparently a floormate of Ande's at U of M.  I'm looking forward to the show (especially as I have been obsessed lately with some old MBV EPs that my friend Lyn finally gave up to me before she moved to Alaska... I had shamelessly coveted them for over a year).  Read my article here.  There is also a more thorough write-up of him by Todd McKenzie in this week's City Pulse.

More importantly, come to the show -- there are rumors that the audience will be full of artists, poets, musicians, OCC members and other revelers.

vice magazine's
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[...]

Bohemian Like Who?

  #
logo
DIG! is a film by Ondi Timoner which really ups the ante in the "rockumentary" genre.  Filmed over the course of seven years, DIG! follows the relationship between Dandy Warhols frontman Courtney Taylor and Anton Newcombe, the unpredictable, explosive genius behind the best psychedelic revival band you never heard of, the Brian Jonestown Massacre.  What begins as a friendship rooted in mutual admiration and inspiration dissolves into dysfunctional paranoia as the Dandy's star rises and BJM's star repeatedly sputters and sinks, mostly due to Newcombe's brilliant but self-sabotaging personality.  The requisite sex, drugs and rock'n'roll are doled out in dizzying proportions -- especially the drugs and rock'n'roll -- along with fistfights, on-stage band infighting and, well, more fistfights.  Did I mention drugs?

This film is a must see for documentary fans and rock voyeurs alike.  You will want to visit the record store afterwards.  Check the DIG!
website to see where you can catch this rock'n'roll freight train, which the New York Times calls "heaven-sent," adding "if universities ever start graduate programs in rock stardom, DIG! will surely be a cornerstone of the curriculum."

if you thought color theory was a blast before, hold on to your crayons... top props for claudia cortés' color in motion. it is a stellar interactive site that makes learning, teaching, and experiencing color theory possibly as fun as it ever could be. it's clean and impeccably well crafted design is a pure delight for all who enjoy color, it's symbolism, and it's universal and cultural communicative powers.  created as cortés' MFA design thesis at Rochester Institute of Technology; it has won numerous web design and teaching awards and recently won ID magazine's best of category (the highest award) for it's annual student design review. jospeh albers would definitely dig it.

Radio ReVolt (one person / one watt)

  #

"If the broadcasting power of the most powerful radio station in the Twin Cities is 100,000 watts, we propose a network of microradio transmitters, which can cumulatively match this power. A movement should be set into motion in the spirit of de-centralization and diversity in ownership and programming of the radio waves. Radio Re-Volt!" - Jennifer Allora & Guillermo Calzadilla

Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla hail from Puerto Rico. (see previous works

"Their inventive use of materials and strong sense of the aesthetic and social, encompass art historical references and create a new artistic vocabulary within a psychological, political and social context.

Radio Re-Volt: One Person .ooOne Watt was developed during their 2004 artist residency at the Walker Art Center, in collaboration with the Walker Teen Arts Council, and proposes the production of a network of microradio transmitters which can cumulatively match the power of the most powerful radio station in the Twin Cities."

Music Box is an art project by Jin-Yo Mok who worked with Gicheol Lee.  The music box is a modern take on a physical music boxes, but controlled by a computer.

The computer selects which lights are to be activated when the wheel is turned by hand.

"Where normally pins would pluck the music box's tines, instead photosensors register if an LED is activated or not, causing the sound to play."

"Users can draw any shape on a computer screen using a mouse, and the same shape of LEDs will light up on the the cylinder of the music box. Users then turn the crank handle and listen to the music they composed by drawing."

Music Box is currently at the Whitney Artport.

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.

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).

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
