This Saturday night (Dec. 3rd) at the 119 Gallery in Lowell, MA., Eric and I are once again joining forces with Urchestra to perform Kurt Schwitters’ “Sonata In Primeval Sounds”. I love love LOVE the fact that I’ve been billed on the gallery’s site as “instrument indeterminate”, something I’m cooking up ideas to live up to. Show starts at 8PM.

Published in 1932, Kurt Schwitters’s “Sonata In Primeval Sounds” is the granddaddy of sound-art poems: a 90-minute nonsense opus that develops 26 abstract themes in classical sonata format. Andy Laties’s rousing participatory interpretations were honored in Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art’s major “Art In Chicago 1945-1995? retrospective.

And while this isn’t our rendition, I really like the animation in this clip (and yes, I know they took the marching “r”s from The Wall)
I’m also looking forward to this because we’re having a little autumn art trip to the country in the days beforehand, including visiting a friend and bandmate who now has a barn full of sound-sculptures, and Eric says he can show me where Jack Kerouac is buried in Lowell (and I haven’t ruled out libations and Doll Hospital ninja-gigging), and if time and coaxing people with cars permits, maybe even going back by Feeding Tube records to see what’s new there.
