Theatre Intangible participant and Sparkling Wide Pressure / Horsehair Everywhere member Frank Baugh leads a double life as experimental musician and accomplished painter. Tonight at the Murfreesboro Center for the Arts, his two worlds collide as he opens his exhibit of new paintings with a live sound performance. Take a moment to view some of Frank’s recent paintings here — remarkable, beautiful, unique work.  As the press release states, in the exhibit titled “Stream Returner,” Frank Baugh aims to,

bridge the gap between his experiential world and the world of the unconscious mind through painting and sound manipulation. The exhibit’s opening will feature his most recent paintings as well as a live sound performance from the new album released by Japan’s Analog Path Records to accompany the event.

The opening happens tonight (Friday, July 12th) from 5-7 pm. More info on the Facebook event page.

Frank appeared on Theatre Intangible episode 73: Cuatro Ninos.

Boston area violinist and electronic improvisor MORGAN EVANS-WEILER will perform at Noa Noa on Friday, June 29th. Fans of the extended instrument technique of artists like JOHN BUTCHER, THOMAS HELTON, and local BRADY SHARP should not miss this show. Check out the clip below to see what I’m talking about.

Also performing are the esoteric synthesis of DYLAN SIMON and the ambient tape loops of SPARKLING WIDE PRESSURE. All and all, it’s an evening of challenging and fascinating music. It all goes down at 8pm sharp on the back porch of Noa Noa.

Before you head over, stop around the corner at Chestnut Studios to see new openings at Seed Space and Threesquared. At the former, the opening reception of “Fortune Holiday,” a new installation by NICOLE BAUMANN. At the later, an opening of 2D works by our good friend MATT CHRISTY. Both receptions are from 6 to 8pm at Chestnut Studios, 427 Chestnut Street, Nashville, Tennessee 37203.
