David Grubbs reads from his new book Now That the Audience is Assembled. Also on the bill is improvised sound and movement with an ensemble including musicians Nate Scheible, Layne Garrett and myself, and dancers Ken Manheimer and Sarah Schaffer. Tonight at Rhizome DC, 6950 Maple St NW DC, 9-10:30 PM, $10.
In the new Perfect Sound Forever, I talk with Gary Peters, author of Improvising Improvisation and The Philosophy of Improvisation, about some of the philosophical issues improvisation raises.
A new collaboration, with Marco Lucchi’s Musiche Virtuali project. Collaborators were given a mellotron track to respond to; Marco crafted the final results. The variety of sounds and approaches reflects the different sensibilities that came into play. Mine is here, but please listen to the others as well.
Tomorrow afternoon I’ll be with the Creative Music Workshop for a performance of improvised music and dance at the Takoma Park Community Center, 7500 Maple Avenue, Takoma Park MD 20912. All ages, beginning at 4 PM.
