The Mad and The Bad

Thu, September 18, 2014 - 8:00pm

David Georgi, James Hoff, Jason Napoli-Brooks, Luc Sante and Donald Nicholson-Smith read from recent translations of important historic crime novels, poetry, and political writing, as well as contemporary pulp genre experiments that celebrate all forms of deviation, criminality and antisocial sentiments.

Minor Musics Japan opens with Ché-Shizu, an improv-folk group led by Chie Mukai. Since 1981 they have recontextualized folk instruments and electronics in spontaneous actions that are lyrical, compelling, and endearingly unpolished. Mukai also plays duo with LLILW GRAY, alias of No-Neck Blues Band's Keith Connolly.

Chie Mukai leads an improvisation workshop, sharing experiences from thirty years of site-specific performance and improvisation. This workshop continues a teaching practice begun in 2001, it is free and open to 25 practitioners of sound and movement (RSVP required), and also to an audience of observers.
