Monday, March 15–New Music for the 21st Century with Vyas/Sebastian/Ricart Trio + Sesshin No-Fi + Fast Forty!

Vyas/Sebastian/Ricart Trio–No-holds barred, post-everything, free-improv supergroup with Ed Ricart (drums; Matta Gawa,  Sonic Suicide Squad, etc), Mike Sebastian (sax; 21st Century Chamber Ensemble, DCIC, etc), Ashish Vyas (Thievery Corporation, Vertical Dogs, etc).

Sesshin No-FiBabylonian bebop from members of Aleasthete, 302 Acid and other projects, combining zen concept of no mind with the unconventional aesthetic of no wave and lo-fi underground musics.

Fast FortyInspired by an El Possible show last year, Keith Sinzinger took a bunch of galvanized pipe–once destined for the dump–and transformed it into a set of tubular bells. Played with various mallets, hammers, finger picks & whatever else comes to mind, and processed through an array of stomp boxes and other electronics, the bells are sometimes earthy, sometimes industrial, sometimes spacey. Added to the mix are tape loops, found sounds, circuit-bent toys & other oddities. After a long absence from live performance (mostly rave chill-out stuff), Keith returned in April 2009 to play at a Sonic Circuits event and gathering of the Baltimore SDIY Variable Ensemble at the National Electronics Museum. He performs under the moniker Fast Forty, adopted when he was fast approaching 40. Past projects have included remixing the Clinton impeachment debate and the Biden-Palin vice presidential debate (both self-released on cassette). A lifelong newsman, he tries to remain in tune to the news and is constantly on the lookout for ways to exploit it musically. File under: intense ambient.
