Concert

Mike Svoboda (trombone) and Fe-mail (Maja Ratkje & Hild Tafjord) (electronics/noise duo)

Location: The Renaissance Society
Admission: free
 

This bill is in thirds.  First third -- Svoboda trombone solo.  Second third -- Fe-Mail.  Third third -- Svoboda and Fe-mail improvised duets.  Over the years Svoboda has distilled his repertoire into a 70 minute tour de force of solo trombone work featuring his own compositions interspersed among the likes of  Scelsi, Cage, and Xenakis.  Hailing from Norway, Fe-mail is an electronics/noise duo whose soundscapes are based on improvisation with live sampling. Describing them in CODA magazine Andrew Chocate wrote,"Sputter-funk from twisting electrodes smacked up fast! (gesturesound tweakgesture pow!sound whoawhoawhoa)."  This evening is sure to pack a wallop.
