Live Stage: Experimental Music @ ARTS Lab [us Albuquerque]

11_06_08.jpgARTS Lab presents the first in a series of experimental music concerts featuring composer-performers who work inside (and outside) the musical fields of electroacoustic, acousmatic, noise, and free improvisation. The first evening features a collaborative performance by Raven Chacon and William Fowler Collins and a set by Luperci :: November 6, 2008; 7:00 pm :: ARTS Lab Garage, 131 Pine Street NE, Albuquerque, NM.

RAVEN CHACON (b. Fort Defiance, Navajo Nation, Arizona, United States, 1977) is an American composer and artist. He is known for being a composer of chamber music as well as being a solo performer of experimental noise music. As an enrolled member of the Navajo Nation, he is also one of the few American Indian classical composers and educators of “New Native Art.” Chacon has recorded many works for classical and electronic instruments and ensembles and has had many performances and exhibits of his work across the U.S. as well as Europe and New Zealand. He has received commissions from the University of Mary Washington and the ERGO Ensemble. He was a student of James Tenney, Morton Subotnick, and Wadada Leo Smith while he was studying music at the California Institute of the Arts. He lives in Albuquerque, NM and has served as Composer-in-Residence with the Native American Composers Apprenticeship Project.

WILLIAM FOWLER COLLINS: Originally from rural New England and now living in New Mexico, William Fowler Collins (b.1974) is a musician whose work explores and synthesizes both musical and extra-musical elements. Improvisation, field recordings, electric guitar, lap steel guitar, laptop computer, processed recordings, micro-cassette tape recorders, and home-made electronic devices all play roles in the creating, performing, and recording of his music. In 2004 Collins graduated from Mills College, with an MFA in Electronic Music and Recording Media where he studied with Fred Frith, Annie Gosfield, Alvin Curran, Maggi Payne, Chris Brown, and Pauline Oliveros.

LUPERCI is the aural work of New Mexico based artist Joseph Angelo. This work can be primarily categorized as drone noise with an emphasis on texture and repetition. All pieces are intuitively arranged with a focused intent. Thus far, general themes revolve around opening the currents of primordial chaos, acknowledgment of the cycles of destruction/creation, and the faint whisper of hope amidst despair. Joseph holds a BFA from the University of New Mexico, and has been performing experimental music since 1999. In the fall of 2006 Joseph adopted the moniker Luperci to reflect the new style and approach that was beginning to emerge. Notable performances as Luperci took place at the Minima per Maxima Festival at L’an Vert gallery in Liege, Belgium, Salon Bruit in Berlin, Germany, and a live radio performance on “the no other radio network” show in Berkeley, California. Live performances utilize organic sounds such as sitar, harmonium, tamboura, chinese hammered dulcimer, bass guitar, and human voice. These sounds are electronically treated, manipulated, layered, arranged, and designed to provide the audience access to introspective and/or trance-like states.
