NYsoundCircuit 4.3
“1, 2, 3″

Saturday, May 11, 2013, 8 PM, The DiMenna Center, NYC

NYsoundCircuit – the multimedia salon series – closes the season with one of its most varied sonic and visual explorations yet. Featured is the one and only turntablist MARIA CHAVEZ, making it as easy as “1,2,3” with a solo, duo, and finally a trio set woven through the evening with Sandy Ewen and Daniel Neumann. Also lined up are ANGÉLICA NEGRÓN premiering a new set of songs for voice, clocks, accordions, toys, and electronics and violinist ANDIE SPRINGER performing “Dandelion” by MARY KOUYOUMDJIAN, exploring childhood manipulations of old home movies. Trumpeter HUGO MORENO performs “Toying” by Chelsea Music Festival Composer-in-Residence ERIC NATHAN. Saxophones wail as the NEW THREAD QUARTET delivers music from the lyrical to the virtuosic. DANIEL NEUMANN performs a multi-channel live improvisation, “A Corner as a Field” while the CURT SYDNOR QUARTET reimagines the architecture of Louis Sullivan in “Materials and their Destiny.”

Ivy Castellanos – construction as action art

Lindsey Drury – embodied concepts

Courtney Leigh Novak – transdiscipline, all tools out

Erin Rogers – saxophone glory

Lopi LaRoe – saws through the boundaries between art and activism

Esther Neff – dremels and drills

This event is part of the No Wave Performance Task Force (NWPTF). The No Wave Performance Task Force (NWPTF) is a collective that enables performative social sculpture, practicing Feminist construction rather than reacting solely to existing conditions of patriarchy, gender, sexuality, and “Other” vs. “Us” dichotomies.

Thursday videos from thingNY!

Date: March 21, 2013

For the next four weeks thingNY will be releasing a new YouTube video every Thursday! Today, Thursday Mar 14 through Thursday Mar 21, please enjoy:

GLUE – a structured improvisation modeled on the Fluxus piece For a Drummer (Fluxversion 1) by George Brecht which asks that a “performer drums with drumsticks or drum brushes over the surface of wet mud or thick glue until brushes or sticks get stuck and can’t be lifted.” The accompanying ensemble members are each equipped with their primary instrument and an electronic instrument capable of “getting stuck” on its own.

thingNY performs Glue at The Tank
Filmed February 21, 2013 in New York City
Presented by Guy Barash’s Eavesdropping Series
