Still Life with Microphone 10.5 debuts at Mass MoCA this saturday, November 6th, 2010. Featuring films by Bill Morrison and the maiden voyage of a brand new violin and video piece by Nick Zammuto, as well as ongoing collaborations with my good colleagues, Luke DuBois and the League of Electronic Musical Urban Robots (LEMUR), this show is jam-packed with aural, video and technological madness.
I haven’t done a Still Life show in awhile, and doing it in my adopted home of North Adams, Massachusetts where I also spend my July every year in residence with Bang on a Can at our summer festival, well, this makes it a very special show for me.
Spring will see the completion of a long double CD project which I’ve been working on since 2005, and Still Life with Mic, its supporting show, is now available for booking for the long term.
This show also features work by Michael Lowenstern (Crossroads) and a new piece by David Little (and the sky was still there), both written for the new record. Add to that Michael Gordon’s Light is Calling and Outerborough (my own composition) which both feature gorgeous films by filmmaker Bill Morrison, and plenty of LEMUR Robot action, and this lands me in concert heaven. Rounding out the evening is a perpetual motion work called Fast Pasture by The Books’ Nick Zammuto, with video shot in his own multiple acres of woods in Vermont.
Still Life with Microphone is now available for booking internationally in multiple formats with diverse repertoires. Please click here to request more information.
