eng.jpgRhys Chatham with Kevin Jay and David Sims team up with Angie Eng for a multimedia concert :: October 15 and 16, 2010; 8 p.m. :: The Kitchen, 512 West 19th Street, New York, NY.

Paris-based musician and composer Rhys Chatham — the beloved first music curator of The Kitchen in the 1970s — has reached legendary status in experimental music circles, best-known most recently for high profile productions of his rugged noise symphonies written for hundreds of guitars. Media artist Angie Eng and Chatham team up for this live multi-media concert, with drummer Kevin Shea and electric bassist David Sims joining on stage. Playing both guitar and trumpet, Chatham deploys extended playing techniques inherited from the glory days of free jazz (Don Cherry, Bill Dixon, Jac Berrocal…) as well as leaders of the minimalist movement (Tony Conrad, Jon Hassell, La Monte Young…) of which he is one of the successors, arriving at a mix that ebulliently exits from his various horns and axes while simultaneously going through stomp boxes and electronic devices.
