In the Sanctuary: James Fella - Inactive Parts LP/CD Release/Performance

…in acknowledgement of a new LP/CD, which is called Inactive Parts, Friday March 3rd 2017: A two-hour set of minimal and sporadic sound via guitar, electronics, cassette, and percussion.

7pm – 9pm (please feel free to "come and go") in the Grace Lutheran Church sanctuary, 1124 N. 3rd Street in Phoenix, AZ. This event is free, but donations can be made to The Trunk Space in observance of their ongoing efforts to provide a space that is welcoming and encouraging towards people of all ages, color, gender, class and “ETC” to be creative and included.

About Inactive Parts: Inactive Parts (as a release) follows a recent series of self-issued long-format CDs and cassette on Torn Light, but was originally a December 2014 installation at The Trunk Space in Phoenix, AZ consisting of paintings, screen printed Xerox pieces, lathe cut 7" records, and two sets of two single-sided acetate LPs which were used for a sound installation that could also function as "instruments" for a live performance.

Two performances occurred: 12/05/14 (the opening reception, duration: 4 hours), 12/20/14 (for the Gilgongo Records 10-year anniversary event with Sissy Spacek, Stephen Steinbrink, Cherie Cherie, and Maniac Cop (Mallevs), duration: approx. 30 minutes). Inactive Parts originally appeared as “New Material," an hour-long piece that aired on Ricardo Wang’s “What’s This Called?” on KPSU in Portland, OR in August 2014. The content of that program, the acetate version, and this final edition are all slightly different from one another. LP (edition of 450) includes three prints and two postcards from the installation, CD/digital edition includes "Inactive Portion," a 7" lathe that was part of the installation as well.
