Wednesday 13   Annie Gosfield

Fresh from the factory, compositions and improvisations that combine the crashes and bangs of heavy industry with the bleeps and blips of high-tech manufacturing, inspired by Gosfield's recent residency in the factories of Nuremberg, Germany; plus "Shoot the Player Piano", a video of an imaginary orchestra of aged mechanical instruments; sampling keyboards, plus guest musicians

Sunday 17
(3 - 11pm)
  A special event: Jon Abbey and Michael Goodstein DJ

A listening experience comprised of carefully selected pieces from all corners of the globe, both current and historical, and programmed specifically to take full advantage of the superb EI audio system; at times, multiple selections will be playing simultaneously; curated by Jon Abbey of Erstwhile Records and Michael Goodstein of WFMU

Monday 18   Myriam Gourfink and Kasper Toeplitz

TOO GENERATE : we made choreography and music at the same time, considering the body as an abstract volume, and sound as motion, or stillness - they are equal and bring a new approach to the usual process of such a project: the music is neither a support nor an accompaniment to the movement, the dance is not "on" the music; the technical apparatus - sound system, computer and musician - stands front stage, blocking the audience's view; Gourfink,dance and Toeplitz, music/computer

Thursday 21
(6pm - midnight)
  Phill Niblock

Six hours of music and film/video, for his 67th winter solstice, with some guest performers; the days will get longer from now on, or at least until June 21

    Our programs are supported by the New York State Council on the Arts, and the Phaedrus Foundation
