“Sound-Worlds” new works by Christopher Jette

SPECIAL TIME 8PM -FREE!

“Sound-Worlds,” a presentation of two new works by Christopher Jette.

Twyping (C. Jette)

Twyping is an electronic composition that sonifies a stream of tweets, creating a sound-world based on the performative act of typing.

v->t->d (C. Jette and K. Thomas)

v->t->d is a two part composition for saxophone/laptop (part 1) and saxophone/guitar/drums (part 2). The two halves of the piece use the same material in order to create different sound-worlds. Kelland Thomas, saxophone; Angus Forbes, drums; Matt Mitchell, guitar. The piece will also feature live video processing by Javier Villegas and Angus Forbes.

Christopher Jette is a composer and new media artist living in the SF Bay Area. His compositions, both electronic and acoustic, investigate the intersection of humanity and modern technology. More information about his work can be found at www.cj.lovelyweather.com.

NYC UNDERGROUND part 3: WILD COMBINATION: A PORTRAIT OF ARTHUR RUSSELL

(*Carl’s Cine Club)
Matt Wolf’s 2008 documentary Wild Combination tells the remarkable, improbable story of Arthur Russell, an Iowa transplant to New York City in the early 1970s who became a downtown fixture as a musician, artist and producer of early disco records. Arthur’s story is also the story of creating art under duress in the fertile, but also desperate milieu of downtown New York in the 70s and 80s. With remembrances by his collaborators Philip Glass, Allen Ginsberg, David Toop and others.
