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.
