Talk about a great lineup coming out of nowhere — our Experimental Series #6 at Noa Noa tomorrow evening fell into place in a matter of days. First, Brighton, Great Britain noise artist and show organizer Freudian Slit wrote me asking what events were going on while they were visiting Nashville. We ended up scheduling this show. Freudian Slit met Age, Virginia Griswold, and Morgan-Higby-Flowers at the NO MEDIA event during the Clarksville Art Walk, and we added those artists to the bill.
Then, Theatre Intangible collaborator Thomas Helton wrote me to let me know his friend Joe Hertenstein would be in town Friday and might be persuaded to perform. Thus, this morning, the bill for the Noa Noa Experimental Series #6 was finalized.
Friday’s theme is “Supersized Mess — Bigger, cheaper, faster, more more more!”
Here’s a bit more about each artist:
- Freudian Slit is a British Genderqueer activist come noise musician. Messing up some supersized menu items for your viewing pleasure. And hopefully your bleeding ears.
- Joe Hertenstein is a New York City-based drone/avant-garde/free improv drummer, originally hailing from Germany. He’s played with heavy hitters such as Mat Maneri, Anthony Coleman, Ken Filiano, Frank Gratkowski, Jon Irabagon, Achim Tang, Thomas Helton, Pascal Niggenkemper, Mikko Innanen, Todd Neufeld, Simon Jermyn, and Thomas Heberer. Tonight, he’ll be joined by special guests Randy Hunt and Jamison Sevits.
- Age explores electronic copying nastiness as a new tonal language – Josh Gumiela and Luke Rainey, based in Nashville, TN.
- Virginia Griswold & Morgan Higby-Flowers make dirt-filthy, loud, stroboscopic noise and visuals cutting through wet porcelain.
Our show starts at 10pm, so you’ll have plenty of time to catch the 7:30pm show Concurrence & Dig Deep Light Show at Free Form Fridays at the Centennial Black Box Theatre.
