the wulf. @ MOCA

Here's a great video from July 3, when the wulf. took over MOCA for a day! All of the usual wulf. suspects are in there, masterminded by Madison Brookshire. It was an exciting day of experimental music everywhere, surrounded by art.

I had 2 pieces involved: my accordion ensemble, Free Reed Conspiracy, played my piece Neotrope. I also displayed my two 100-movement music boxes. Though the music boxes didn't make the video, Free Reed Conspiracy did.

From the youtube video description:
"On July 3, 2011, MOCA Sunday Studio invited downtown experimental arts organization the wulf. to organize an afternoon of performances and interactive sound pieces in the museum in order to highlight the use of sound in the exhibition William Leavitt: Theater Objects. For 3 hours, 32 composers and performers associated with the wulf. transformed the permanent collection, Reading Room, ARCO Court and Sculpture Plaza with 20 different performances and installations ranging from an accordion octet to a dry ice percussion ensemble.

Featuring performances and pieces by Casey Anderson, Dicky Bahto, Matt Barbier, Ezra Buchla, Eric KM Clark, Scott Cazan, Daniel Corral, Corey Fogel, Carlos Inderhees, Heather Lockie, Liam Mooney, Larry Polansky, Alan Nakagawa, Wolfgang von Schweinitz, Mark So, Laura Steenberge, Luke Storm, Christine Tavolacci, Tashi Wada, Colin Wambsgans, Michael Winter and Harris Wulfson.

Sonic minimalism or some such??

Some of it could be considered minimalist, though more attuned to LaMonte Young than John Adams. But there were so many different people doing so many different things... a fun day!
