For those not attending the Matthew Shipp Trio at VFW Post 1970 this Saturday night, consider checking out Noa Noa’s second entry in our new experimental series. This one explores the theme “Defacing Purity,” which we define as “taking something pure and gradually degrading, defacing, or destroying it.” Four artists will interpret that theme as they see fit.

Multimedia artist and Watkins professor Adán De La Garza will push hi-fi audio test records to their lo-fi extremes.

Theatre Intangible participant, instrument-maker, and experimental musician Josh Gumiela with shorten short-wave radio. Weather permitting, we’ll do the show on the back porch. Word has it Josh may physically carry the radio antenna to unexpected outdoor heights.

Visiting assistant professor of New Media Art at Austin Peay, experimental musician, artist, and hacker Morgan Higby-Flowers will wring output (audio and video) from a no-input system.

Theatre Intangible participant, sound-collage artist, DJ, and musician Pimpdaddysupreme will breath unholy life into broken and abused vinyl records.

These descriptions are merely the initial ideas we discussed. The final performance details are, of course, subject to change (and further subversion).

Check out some of Adán’s and Morgan’s previous work in the videos below.

The Tim Kaiser show on May 7th brought out a huge crowd and, in particular, some talented photographers. Here’s a media repository of their work. I’ll update as new photos come in.

Big thanks to Pimpdaddysupreme for filling in an open spot on the schedule at the last minute with an AMAZING set.

Theatre Intangible participant PIMPDADDYSUPREME has upped the ante in local experimental music booking with an entire weekend of noise, glitch, electronic, and collage artists. Headlining the multi-venue festival is legendary copyright outlaw EVOLUTION CONTROL COMMITTEE (Wiki) (Mark Gunderson). If for some reason, you’ve never heard of ECC: THIS IS A BIG DEAL! Along with NEGATIVLAND, PLUNDERPHONICS, THE TAPE BEATLES, and other sonic outlaws, Mark challenged America’s overly-restrictive copyright laws while GIRL TALK was still playing with Tinker Toys.

Here’s a classic ECC mashup:
