Tatsuya Nakatani w/ experimental video, New Sight

Solo Nakatani Set plus Collaborative Live Score
With locals:
Windy Boijen (banjos)
Seth Kasselman (synth/clarinet)

TATSUYA NAKATANI live sound score project:
featuring David Andree’s experimental video, New Sight.

For this performance, Nakatani improvises a live score while screening Andree’s experimental video work, New Sight. Inspired by accounts of blind individuals gaining their sight later in life, the video explores the interplay of light, shape, and movement within a non- linear narrative. Nakatani’s score attaches a voice to the vision, and together, sound and image move between form and formlessness, creating an intimate portrait of revelation.
David Andree on his video work, New Sight-

“Inspired by accounts of blind individuals gaining their sight later in life, the video work explores the interplay of light, shape, and movement as it fluctuates between abstraction and recognizable form.

Traditional lenses are not used in favor of exploring more direct manipulations of light. Light is focused through the use of self-made apertures including pinholes or using my own hands to direct the light. Using the body to focus light allows for the aperture to fluctuate in real time, allowing in more or less light, much like our own eyes do. This produces effects that are reminiscent of how it feels to open your eyes first thing in the morning or to squint at a bright light. Mirrors are used to redirect light, creating multiple viewpoints, and layers visuals in real time, further complicating the immediate comprehension of visual information.

Elements of landscape often appear throughout the work. I am attracted to the contemplative nature of the landscape’s gradual changes, vastness of space, varied organic forms, and atmospheric effects. I find its elements beautiful and simultaneously menacing. I strive to amplify these aspects through my own manipulation of focus, composition, exposure, movement, and layering.

Both sound and video move forward through time. Their changes imply a narrative however abstract it may feel. My hope is that the visuals combine with sound poetically to create a unique narrative structure for each person as they interpret the work, and that the emotive impact, and fluctuation between abstraction and representational form, provides new and unfamiliar experiences, striving to create novel, unanticipated aspects for appreciation.”

Calvin Johnson (K Records) w/Golden Boots and Josué Kinter

8:00 PM20:00

Calvin Johnson (K Records) w/Golden Boots and Josué Kinter

Calvin Johnson established K Records  in 1982 and founded Dub Narcotic Studio in 1993. He has performed with groups such as Beat Happening, The Go Team, Halo Benders, Dub Narcotic Sounds System, and The Hive Dwellers. He tours as a solo artist, and also performs as Selector Dub Narcotic.

He is touring in support of his new album “A Wonderful Beast.” Calvin entered the Audio Eagle Studio in Nashville, TN. using the premise “Rock’n’roll Will Never Die” as a starting point. Working closely with Producer Patrick Carney and Chief Engineer Marc Whitmore, the team tested the resiliency of such time honored materials as the electric guitar, modular synthesizer and trap drum kit, combining them in various ratios with musical elements like chords A, C and D minor. The results are the Frankenstein’s monster of an album, “A Wonderful Beast.”

Golden Boots are Tucson, Arizona’s tropical cowboys, continue to create their unique and diverse music distilled from the dusty depths and strip malls of the American southwest. Part rock, part country, part absurdity, and all weird, the toe-tapping ramshackle hydra that is Golden BooTs transforms again into their latest incarnation, the “Tropical Trio”. Founding members Dimitri Manos and Ryen Eggleston have teamed up with long-time collaborator and potential group hallucination, tidypaws, to form one the most unique arrangements of the group in their wildly varying 15 year history. Armed only with an electric guitar, omnichord, saxophone and their wits, the Boots have released a new album "H.A.L.T." and hit the road to bring the weirdness to the world.

Josué Kinter is a local singer-songwriter who's dark and dreamy sound is equal parts Bauhaus, Neil Young, and Townes Van Zandt. Josué went solo recently and established his backing band, the Dreamy Draw Boys after moving on from previous projects: deathrock band Hex Wave and surf-punk band Rum Drinker. This is going to be their first formal show playing a full 20 minute set of all new material.
