If you catch the 7 p.m. Joo Won Park Indeterminacies show at Zeitgeist, you should have plenty of time to make it to Boheme Collectif at 9 p.m. for Mike Kluge’s latest installment of Future Night, an experimental art and music showcase.

Mike Kluge (my partner for ON/OFF @ Arts & Music @ Wedgewood/Houston) curates a Future Night every other month at Boheme Collectif. The shows feature wonderful bands and amazing interactive art installations. Check the below video to see some of the art featured at the previous Future Night.

This round features music from Circuit Benders’ Ball alum Brain Lesion (Andrew Morrill) as well as Linear DownfallMeth DadRoboctopus and DotcomDigDeep LightShow will provide real-time overhead-projector visuals.

T.J. Borden

Buffalo, New York experimental cellist and composer T.J. Borden will be appearing tonight at Boheme Collectif as a part of a fantastic bill organized by Future Night’s Mike Kluge. T.J. performed last year at Noa Noa and also on this Theatre Intangible episode.

T.J. is a big proponent of improvisation and extended technique, utilizing every inch of his cello. If you dig string players like Peter Kowald and Thomas Helton, you’ll really love T.J. He’s worked with artists such as Tony Conrad, Steven Mackey, Jack Wright, Evan Lipson, and DJ Spooky. Check out the below video for his duet with Thomas Helton.

Visuals will be provided by the overhead projections of Dig Deep Light Show, who blew minds at Noa Noa last month with their light-led improv.

Also on the bill, another extended-techniquer: guitarist Brady Sharp (who has appeared on all these T.I. episodes).

One of the busiest drummers in Nashville, Tommy Stangroom will be performing a solo experimental set as Posttaste. He’s appeared on these T.I. episodes.

Nashville rock n’ roll frontman T. Rust will collaborate with artist Brains Bailey on drones and projections.

This show is going to be amazing! More info on the Facebook event page.

Here’s are tentative times:

Posttaste: 9-9:30
TJ Borden: 9:45-10:15
Brady Sharp: 10:30-11
T. Rust /Brains Bailey: 11:15-11:4

You should be able to catch Antonio das Mortes at Third Man Light & Sound Machine at 7pm and still be able to see most or all of this show. Hope to see you there!

The Wedgewood-Houston neighborhood is kicking off a new monthly art crawl, beginning Saturday, August 3rd from 5:30pm to 11pm. I’m teaming up with Mike Kluge (Future Night at Boheme Collectif) to curate an electronic art exhibition at the SNAP Center called “ON/OFF.”

The art community centered around Chestnut Street (near Greer Stadium) has long been one of Nashville’s best kept secrets. The Saturday art crawl is a great opportunity to tour wonderful spaces such as music producer Lonie John Hutchin’s new Cleft Studios, world famous Infinity Cat Records, community makerspace Fort Houston, and galleries such as Ground Floor Gallery, Ovvio Arte, Seed Space, Track One and Zeitgeist Gallery.

For our ON/OFF exhibition at SNAP Center, Mike and I called upon members of the circuit bending and electronic music and art communities to show off  interactive installations, reactive video, sound sculptures, flashing lights and things that go buzz.

There will be two live performances. At 7pm and 9pm, artist David Wright LaGrone will perform live dynamic video art with guitar pedals and the Hard Soft Synth 3jb, an innovative lo-fi video synthesizer from Bleep Labs.  At 8pm and 10pm, artist and Watkins professor Morgan Higby Flowers will perform realtime audio visuals using a no-input system. The output ranges from dirt-filthy, loud, and stroboscopic to soft, rhyth-matic NTSC rivers.

The participating artists include:

  • Zach Adams
  • Brains Bailey
  • Benton Bainbridge
  • Lawrence Crow
  • Josh Gumiela
  • Linda Heck
  • Morgan Higby-Flowers
  • David Wright LaGrone
  • Andrew Morill
  • Adrienne Outlaw
  • Luke Rainey
  • Stan Richardson
  • Liz Clayton Scofield
  • Derek Schartung
  • Russell White

(Artist list is subject to change.)

This should be a fun show! Check out previews of Adrienne Outlaw‘s and Zach Adams‘ works below.

And be sure to check out all the other great gallery exhibits.
