Boris Bobby by Jimmy Ghaphery, live at Sonic Circuits Festival 2012, September 29 at the Atlas Performing Arts Center, Washington DC.
One of the marquee events at this year’s Sonic Circuits Festival is the David Behrman Ensemble’s performance Friday of “My Dear Siegfried,” a piece inspired by correspondence between Siegfried Sassoon (one of Britain’s famed World War I poets) and Behrman’s father, S.N. Behrman (a playwright and New Yorker writer). Like so much of the music at Sonic Circuits, it’s a work that never comes out the same way twice; in the video above, Behrman says D.C. audiences will be getting the latest version, which the ensemble also performed last week in New York. (Here’s a clip from a performance in early 2012.)
Dì Tuī Piàn Duàn / 遞推片段 (“Recursive Frame Fragmentation”) is a collaboration between Mei Mei Chang (live video, light, objects) and Cory O’Brien (snare drum, electronics). Recursion is presented as infinite audio and video feedback. Fragmentation is the alteration and destruction of objects, sound and light. The subject of fragmentation is the internal perception, mental frame, memory, or idea. Performances are real-time and improvised, using snare drum and infrared CCTV camera as the main instruments. Sustaining textures and motifs allow close inspection of the viewer’s own perception of the work. The result is simultaneously visceral, organic, frightening and encompassing.
Dì Tuī Piàn Duàn will perform Sunday, September 30, 2012 at the Atlas Performing Arts Center.

Thomas Stanley (Bushmeat) and Mark Cooley (Gut Head) are professors at the George Mason University’s School of Art where they have found common cause in the use of radical sound art as a solvent for dissolving Babylon’s War Machine and rendering it incapable of any further harm. Needless to say, it is a work in progress.
Bushmeat & Guthead will perform Sunday, September 30, 2012 at the Atlas Performing Arts Center.

“Sometimes it seems like every musician in New York has played with the Glenn Branca Ensemble. That’s not entirely true, but it’s close.” Glenn Branca’s compositions center around multiple guitars – four or more, heavily amplified – augmented by a rock-based rhythm section of drums and bass. Later works added other instruments, including mallet guitar, keyboards, and occasionally a second drummer. Branca’s minimalist compositions frequently require unusual guitar tunings – more recent works have them strung with two sets of three strings tuned an octave apart. He’s received many commissions from such groups as the Twyla Tharp Dance Company, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and Bang on a Can, to name just a few. Branca’s music has also been heard in films and performances by Peter Greenaway, the Alvin Ailey Dance Company, the Joffrey Ballet, Eric Bogosian, and many others.
Glenn Branca Ensemble will perform Sunday, September 30, 2012 at the Atlas Performing Arts Center.
