Isabelle Duthoit, Franz Hautzinger, Brian Chase, Ron Anderson - 8pm
505 1/2 Waverly Ave.
Brooklyn, NY 11238

Isabelle Duthoit (Clarinet, voice), Franz Hautzinger (trumpet), Brian Chase (drums), Ron Anderson (bass)

I have known Isabelle Duthoit from many years and she is one of the most amazing improvisers to be found in Europe. She is coming to North America to do a series of concerts with Austrian trumpet player Franz Hautzinger. I have decided to play bass for this gig and have invited Brian Chase to join us.

Born in 1970 in Montargis. Classically trained Isabelle Duthoit is moving quickly towards today’s music working with various ensembles and composers. It finds its rightful place in the world of free improvisation. With the Trio Sofa, project photo phonographic and music, she tries to play the sound (music) in a sound and visual territory daily, listening space and slip into vitality … without staging. As has always been attracted by her voice, she has developed only a singing technique singular language before language. She sings and improvised solo and duet with Phil Minton. In 2008, she was a resident at the Villa Kujoyama in Kyoto (Japan) to perform a solo vocal performance in relation to the sound world of Noh and Bunraku theater. From 1995 to 2005, it is committed to the creation and improvised music by creating Fruits Festival Mhère “fields of improvisation” with Jacques Di Donato. Since 1997 she teaches clarinet and improvisation at the Conservatoire Departmental Evry (Essonne).

Detours often lead to more thrilling goals because they open up new perspectives. Franz Hautzinger has taken long and bendy detours and turned to many dead ends, he has spent years without instrumental activity and has made a hopeful new start. All this, those victories and defeats, this “History from the Total Crash to ‘Emergency Individualism’”, as he himself described it, made Franz Hautzinger the highly profiled musical personality that he is today.

The conscious decision to avoid electronic sound sources but to still comprehend the development of digital music on the trumpet – the quarter tone trumpet purchased in 1997 – were decisive stages for the creation of Franz Hautzinger’s sensational solo trumpet CD “Gomberg” (2000) on which he presented this new until then unheard cosmos of sound that he had developed on his instrument. Hautzinger positioned himself with “Gomberg” at the front line of the international improvisation avant-garde; collaborations and CD records with Derek Bailey, the “AMM” veterans Keith Rowe and John Tilbury as well as Axel Dörner, Christian Fennesz or Otomo Yoshihide, and Sachiko M followed. The step into the world of decelerated sound microscopy and from 2003 on the re-discovery of musical sensualism, the confrontation of his trumpet sounds with groove and tunes (“Regenorchester XI” and XII) can be considered as important stages in his development. Franz Hautzinger teaches at the Vienna Music University since 1989, is a member of the Berliner Ensemble “Zeitkratzer” since 1999 and received comissions from Klangforum Vienna amongst others. He is a globetrotter whose unmistakeable musical signature is known from Vienna to Berlin, London to Beirut, or in Tokyo, New York, and Chicago. Franz Hautzinger has shown that even in times where postmodernism is history an instrument can still be reinvented.

Brian Chase plays in the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. He was ranked at #50 in Gigwise's list of The Greatest Drummers of All Time. He has performed in a number of experimental duos with other musicians such as Stefan Tcherepnin and Seth Misterka, with whom he released a CD Duo on the Australian Heathen Skulls label in 2007.Other musicians he has played with include Jessica Pavone, Mary Halvorson, Moppa Elliott, and groups Oakley Hall, Blarvuster, and klezmer
fusionists The Sway Machinery. In May 2010 the Chase/Misterka Duo performed at the Melbourne International Jazz Festivaland then a month long Australian tour. A second record The Shape of Sound was released to coincide

 This will be the third in a series of music events with Ron Anderson as curator.
The concept is to have four exciting, powerful, new or experiment, avant-goups or solo performers each from different musical genres.  Each group or soloist is strictly limited to 30 minutes of performance time.

 Ron Anderson (guitar) Brian Chase (drums)
Ron Anderson is a self-taught rock composer who starting experimenting with new rock concepts, noise, free improvisation while in high school in the mid 1970’s. In 1980 he was one of the founding members of Rat At Rat R in Philadelphia. He moved to New York City’s Lower East Side in 1982. He started working in his home recording studio experimenting with tape editing, found sounds, noise, and improvisation. He combined these elements with composition and released his first LP entitled Fever Dream in 1987.  Ron moved to Oakland, CA in 1989 and shortly thereafter formed The Molecules; they released a total of 6 CD’s.  He and The Molecules were introduced to the European music community at the Musique Action Festival in Nancy, France in 1993 and since then he has been a regular on the European festival and club circuit, as well as touring in Japan, Canada and the United States. After living in Geneva, Switzerland for one year, he moved back to New York City in 1999 where he formed PAK. He has collaborated with many musicians on numerous projects.  He appears on over 60 releases, most recently Chris Pitiokos, Weasel Walter, Ron Anderson – Maximalism (CD) - Eleatic Records

Brian Chase plays in the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. He was ranked at #50 in Gigwise's list of The Greatest Drummers of All Time. He has performed in a number of experimental duos with other musicians such as Stefan Tcherepnin and Seth Misterka, with whom he released a CD Duo on the Australian Heathen Skulls label in 2007.Other musicians he has played with include Jessica Pavone, Mary Halvorson, Moppa Elliott, and groups Oakley Hall, Blarvuster, and klezmer
fusionists The Sway Machinery. In May 2010 the Chase/Misterka Duo performed at the Melbourne International Jazz Festivaland then a month long Australian tour. A second record The Shape of Sound was released to coincide.

Ava Mendoza/Tim Dahl/Matt Nelson/Nick Podgurski
Ava Mendoza is a guitarist from Oakland, CA who has been active for the last decade playing her own music and in many different groups. She has toured throughout the U.S., Europe and recorded or performed with a broad spectrum of musicians including Tune-Yards, Fred Frith, Carla Bozulich, Nels Cline. Critics have called her "Oakland's avant-jazz virtuoso" - Village Voice),  "a wizard on a semi-circle of effects pedals, but… equally adept with FX-less technique," NPR.

Insect Ark - Dana Schecter
Insect Ark is the new solo project from Dana Schechter, known for her work with Bee and Flower and M. Gira’s Angels of Light (Swans). Based in Brooklyn, INSECT ARK is composed and performed as an analog-electronic hybrid: one woman, a sampler, a bass, a lapsteel and a keyboard. Creating her personal soundtrack to the human psyche’s underbelly, Schechter’s sounds weave a brooding, textural landscape, a starless night spiked with sparkling moments of light and flash. Intimate and cold at the same time, this foray into her aggressive and experimental musical side braids a strong sense of melody into the twists and turns with delay drenched lapsteel, distorted synthesizers and bass, and sparse drum programming.

Anthony Coleman
Accomplished keyboard player and composer Anthony Coleman has gained recognition as an inspired player and talented standout of the avant-garde and klezmer-oriented jazz coming out of N.Y.C.'s downtown. Coleman has performed and recorded with just about every musician involved in this downtown scene, including John Zorn, Elliott Sharp, David Moss, Dave Douglas, David Shea, Gary Lucas, David Krakauer, Marc Ribot, Coleman has received commissions for his compositions from various ensembles including Bang on a Can, Concert Artists Guild, and the Crosstown Ensemble.

Over the last 30 years they have performed with a long list of some of the most creative musicians on the planet and they collectively appear on nearly 200 commercial releases. This night they will be joined by relative newcomer Chris Pitsiokos who has had an incredibly active performance schedule in the last 18 months. Recently, the trio was in the studio recording a new CD that is scheduled for release in July on Eleatic Records and will be available at the performance.  

11pm  Les Rhinoceros  –  formed in 2008 by bassist and composer Michael Coltun. a trio consisting of bass, guitar, and drums. Les Rhinocéros was the first release in Tzadik’s new spotlight series - a series focusing on “exemplary young bands with great dedication, passion, talent and imagination." The series came to life after executive producer John Zorn heard Les Rhinocéros and knew he wanted the band as part of the “Tzadik Family”. Thus the Spotlight Series was born as a means to release this album and, going forward, other albums by exceptional young artists handpicked by Zorn."

Collectively this trio of groups has revolved around the Micheal Gira (Swans) axis for more than 20+ years. Additionally, Ron Anderson (Molecules, PAK and long time collaborator of Ulan Bator) will play his vintage Korg MS 20 and bass!

Ulan Bator was produced on Young Gods. Many members are long standing members of Faust as well. Gira says of Ulan Bator: "one of the best french bands in the last 300 years!" Ulan Bator's first ever US tour will promote its new album "En France, En Trance"available only on the US tour. A live broadcast of Ulan bator can be heard on Brian Turner's WFMU show on May 7th. This show will be a Bon Voyage party for Ulan Bator and will be the last chance to see them on this tour.

Dana Schecter (Insect Ark) is known from her work with Angels of Light and Bee and Flower. Insect Ark is a solo project, described as having "A weighty drone vibe, beautifully drawn-out space filled with low-end waves crashing, gorgeous guitar textures, intriguing siren calls" (Dusted Magazine, March 2013). Tonight will be the Vinyl record release party for Insect Ark's new EP, "Long Arms".

He has realized albums by Sonic Youth, Swans, Bill Laswell, Boredoms, John Zorn, Foetus, etc etc...Bisi continues his history of sonic excess and layering, which can be ambient and disorienting, and swings between heavier post-rock and indie songs, and intimate and entertaining interludes.

Price: $10

Bassoon, SARCAUSTIC, Elevator Rose, Blipvert - curator Ron Anderson

 

Bassoon -  Stuart Popejoy (bass, keyboards) Sean Moran (guitar) John Mettam (drums)

Bassoon is an instrumental metal trio. “Bassoon occasionally avails itself of sheet music onstage, but don’t let that give you the wrong idea. The power trio is one of Brooklyn’s heaviest and most challenging, bringing to mind a mixture of Melvins-style avant-sludge and daredevil ’70s fusion.” Time Out New York 

http://www.popejoy.org/bassoon

SARCAUSTIC - Ron Anderson (guitar) Tim Dahl (bass) Weasel Walter (drums)
Just one rule prevails: The music has to be it direct, to the point, powerful, with no sentimental bullshit.

Blipvert – Will Redmound (electronics)
 The term “Blipvert,” first used in the Max Headroom TV series, refers to an unrelenting stream of information resulting in a state of complete sensory overload. In a live setting, BlipVert’s highly frenetic and unpredictable performances make each show an experience to remember.

Brooklyn, NY 11210
USA
Price: $8.00

Ron Anderson will be part of a twenty guitar orchestra organized by the band Dither.

Dither's Invisible Dog Extravaganza! 2012

---> Anthony Coleman & Ashley Paul
---> Mary Halvorson & Jessica Pavone

---> Victoire
---> Peter Evans
---> Preshish Moments
---> Object Collection
---> TILT Brass
FEATURING:
John Zorn’s Lacrosse performed by Dither
Lois V. Vierk’s Jagged Mesa performed by TILT
Phill Niblock’s 2 lips performed by the Dither Guitar Orchestra

Dither announces our third annual Invisible Dog Extravaganza! – a raucous festival of creative music and art at the Invisible Dog Art Center. The evening will showcase a cross-section of New York’s diverse experimental music scene, with influences spanning jazz, classical music, theater, electronica and the avant garde. The New Yorker dubbed Dither’s extravaganza an “official concert on the edge” and Time Out New York asks you to “immerse yourself in the here and now of New York’s postclassical music scene.”


There will be 10 short sets throughout the evening, featuring a distinguished line-up of guests: Legendary keyboardist Anthony Coleman will perform in a duo with the multifaceted saxophonistAshley Paul; Guitarist Mary Halvorson and violist Jessica Pavone will present their beautiful and odd blend of compositions, songs, and improv; Victoire will perform the artfully honed chamber pop of Missy Mazzoli; Peter Evans will offer a solo set of extensible trumpeting; Preshish Moments will produce a sonic palette of live electronica/exotica; Object Collection will provide an invigorating onslaught of maximalist theater; TILT Brass will perform Jagged Mesa, an explosive composition by Lois V. Vierk.

Dither’s offerings include John Zorn’s Lacrosse, a game piece which they have developed in collaboration with the composer. The quartet will also perform a set of compositions written for them by emergent composers Paula Matthusen and Jascha Narveson, plus a new piece by Dither member Josh Lopes. As a centerpiece to the evening, Dither will expand their forces to an orchestra of 20 guitars to perform Phill Niblock’s 2 lips, a monolithic microtonal composition which Niblock has adapted for Dither for an upcoming release on Touch Music.

The Molecules - 8pm sharp
Corner of Avenue C & 2nd Street
New York, NY 10003
Price: $10

A very rare appearance of 1990’s San Francisco Bay Area legends The Molecules.

Ron Anderson - guitar, voice, trumpet
Thomas Scandura -drums
John Shiurba - bass. voice

 Paroxysmal and unpredictable, spazz-core trio the Molecules was a Bay Area underground fixture in the early '90s. Formed in 1990 by guitarist Ron Anderson, drummer Thomas Scandura, and bassist Chris Millner, the Oakland-based band went through two more bassists, the third being John Shiurba. The industrious Molecules played local shows constantly; they seemed to specialize in opening for Japanese noise bands. The oft-challenging performances predated much of today's avant-weird by a decade, serving up a genre scramble that drew equally from prog, no wave, punk. They managed to release several exceptional albums and kept up a hefty touring regimen that included jaunts across North America, Europe, and Japan. The band's keen approach to deconstructing song arrangements and experimental willpower were adored by many Japanese noise rockers and led to collaborations and tours with Otomo Yoshihide, Melt Banana, Merzbow, and Ruins. This frantic and exciting show is definitely not for the fainthearted.
