All tix sold at the door: $20 ($15 for students/seniors)

Stephen Dydo & Alan Sondheim with Azure Carter

This, the first of four concerts planned to celebrate the 55th
anniversary of Bernard Stollman's creation of ESP-Disk' in 1963,
features two artists from the legendary first period of ESP-Disk
(1963-75): Alan Sondheim (Ritual-All-7-70, 1967, and T'Other
Little Tune, 1968) and Kali Fasteau (The Sea Ensemble's We Move
Together, 1974). Also featured are artists who joined the ESP
family after the label's 2005 revival, Talibam! and friends
performing HARD VIBE, one of their two 2017 ESP releases, and
the trio of pianist Megumi Yonezawa, bassist MK, and drummer Ken
Kobayashi, a group whose debut album ESP is about to release.
This concert also functions as the release party for
Yonezawa/MK/Kobayashis album Boundary and Dydo/Sondheims October
release Dragon and Phoenix.

==============================================

Description of Dragon and Phoenix from the album:

Dragon and Phoenix refers to the names of the sound holes on the
Chinese instrument known as the guqin a.k.a. qin (gu is a prefix
meaning "ancient"), which figures prominently on this album of
improvised acoustic duos, being heard on thirteen of the sixteen
tracks, with two qins on four tracks.

Stephen Dydo, former president of the New York Qin Society, is
the more traditional player here, whereas Alan Sondheim has a
style heavily based on free improvisation. The two bonded over
their instrument collections, sometimes trading or loaning
choice items. Dydo, who has also had lengthy careers as
classical guitarist and as a twelve-tone composer, once told the
author that a good day of composing yielded a measure and a
half; this painstaking attention to detail has stood him in good
stead during his more recent study of the qin. Sondheim, who has
previously had three releases on ESP-Disk' starting in the 1960s
and has prolifically spread his recent musical evolution across
a variety of other labels, is an impulsive musical adventurer
who uses his dizzying array of instruments for what their sounds
can contribute to his musical style; he is not unaware of the
traditional performance techniques of his instruments, but he
never lets his musical expression be limited by or to those
techniques.

Except for the use of madal (a hand drum) on one track, all the
music here is made with stringed instruments. The music is very
often focused on contrasts of timbres and textures. However,
there may be as much pure melodic content here as on any
Sondheim album. Harmonies are spare but spiced with
microtonality. Though it may be more subtle than much of our
catalog, attentive listeners will likely find that this meeting
of tradition and experimentation lives up to an old ESP-Disk'
slogan: "You never heard such sounds in your life."

Work Slowdown, Apocalypse, Earth Qin

http://www.alansondheim.org/nny079.jpg
http://www.alansondheim.org/earthqin.mp3

*/- Napped this afternoon; I'd been dreaming that our car was
highjacked in NY somewhere near east of SOHO by three white
punks, two guys and a girl with pink hair; I was driving, Azure
with me, we were terrified, the girl reached between us and
grabbed a sentimental carving of several people around a table
that I'd given Azure; I thought this is it, turned the car
around and floored it towards a barrier across the road, in a
blurred apocalyptic landscape in pastel colors; as the car
approached the barrier - as the barrier approached the car at a
furious speed - I woke up - /*

Due to recent events, I'm thinking about slowing down my daily
work posting at this point (it began in 1994). My mind's getting
the better of me; I have almost no access to tools and none to
real-life community. My close friends and collaborators have
disappeared; I have very few actual readers or listeners on Fb,
almost none on the moribund G+. I don't want to complain about
this constantly. I think what I've created on a daily basis, is
of interest; I've turned increasingly to the natural world as
I've felt unable to access much of the technology I otherwise
need. I dream of Kickstarter as a way to fuel my work but I have
no specific project in mind (more of a field of investigation).

In the meantime, if you're interested in my work - alone or with
others - pretty much everything recent is on my website,
http://www.alansondheim.org , with additional videos on YouTube.
The files date back at least to 1996 and are downloadable (file
by file, but there are tools available for mass retrieval). I
don't know of course how long I can keep it running; I pay for
it. The point is, you can take what you want from it, as long as
it's up; for me, that's also a form of dissemination and
archiving. The whole runs to over 20 gb, which for 24 years of
work isn't that much. (I do have archives, more or less, at
three universities, but they're all out of date.) I urge you to
save anything that might be of interest to you.

I have a few venues coming up, and I do hope to keep going, in
the form of DIM, do it myself (a dim light indeed) or working
with Azure. And if you're ever in town (now Providence,
hopefully somewhere else in the future), please contact me of
course. Thanks, Alan

Martin 1917 parlor guitar, somewhat 'noisy' with square-cut
frets that buzz, with very low action that rattles somewhat, and
with very low tuning. I played through and with the sounds of
fingers and hand and nail, the pressed strings, and the
beautiful hollow resonance of the instrument. I considered these
sounds part of the improvisation, much as string-finger sound is
integral to qin music, a dialog between the 'noisy' physics of
the world and an idealized project that now incorporates these
physics. This isn't modernism, isn't 'pure' music, but includes
Cageian noise in relation to sound practice, within a habitus of
musician, instrument, and the construction and constitution of
the possible and its manifolds.
