AxS Festival 2014: Curiosity

Shatter + Center
 is a collection of untethered yet hive-minded provocateurs in noise, movement, performance and voice.

Join us in an afternoon of multi-layered improvisation: sonic subterfuge, unguarded movement spectacle, sweat, sensual collisions – a vibrational ecstatic immersion. Lay down or move with us within the Sphæræ ‘s golden hue of light to witness this singular, one-of-a-kind afternoon assembled by Julie Tolentino with Matanoise.

1:30-2:30pm Vibration Bodies All

2:30pm Device Explosives Bodies Shift

3:30pm++ Bodies Penetrate: Shatter + Noise All

Performers

Julie Tolentino invites cross-disciplinary artists Nick Duran, taisha paggett, Pigpen/Stosh Fila, Pony Lee Estrange, Geneva Skeen, John Burtall, and special guest experimental sound artists Patrick Murch & Maria Garcia/MataNoise, Tamaki Ueda, William Hutson, Nial Morgan for an afternoon to explore and move within each other’s practices, head space, bodies to and for and because of the Sphæræ.

------------------------------------

CARL STONE

Carl Stone is one of the pioneers of live computer music, and has been hailed by the Village Voice as "the king of sampling." and "one of the best composers living in (the USA) today." He has used computers in live performance since 1986. Stone was born in Los Angeles and now divides his time between California and Japan. He studied composition at the California Institute of the Arts with Morton Subotnick and James Tenney and has composed electro-acoustic music almost exclusively since 1972. His works have been performed in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Asia, Australia, South America and the Near East. In addition to his schedule of performance, composition and touring, he is on the faculty of the Information Media Technology Department, School of Information Science and Technology at Chukyo University in Japan.

JOSEPH HAMMER

Since 1980 Hammer has operated in a plethora of under-the-radar units such as Dinosaurs With Horns, Joe & Joe, and Points of Friction, but 'I Love You, Please Love Me Too' is about the best entry portal to his multi-dimensional world. With a plunderphonic, Cagean appreciation for the infinite textures of AM radio and "mid century sci fi" Joseph weaves arrestingly hypnotic and experimental 3D collages which have utterly commanded our attention. The systolic stream of looped samples bends time and space with a vividly visual and enveloping intimacy, wrapping listeners in an improvised vortex of acousmatic teases and reference points which seem to fold into an inert aural blind spot point just out of view behind the ears.
