NEW MUSIC SERIES, EVERY THURSDAY
($6-10 sliding scale, no one refused for lack of funds)
8pm: Quiet American (Aaron Ximm)
9pm: Alessandro Bosetti
Sound artist Aaron Ximm works with field recordings. Since 1998, his Quiet American project has focused on constructing new soundscapes from the recordings he collects during travel. His work emphasizes the fragile, the subtle, the intimate, and the lovely.
Composer, saxophonist and sound artist Alessandro Bosetti was born in Milan, Italy in 1973. His work explores the relationship between sound anthropology and composition, focusing on the musicality of spoken words and unusual aspects of spoken communication, with field research and interviews often creating the basis for his abstract compositions. Bosetti’s productions have been featured in live performances, on radio broadcasts and on experimental label recordings. As a saxophonist, he has developed an original instrumental language that incorporates extended techniques and noises, and is strongly influenced by electronic music. Bosetti has performed all over Europe and in the USA and Japan. He lives and works in Berlin. Here’s an interview about his new work “African Feedback” http://www.thirdcoastfestival.org/behind_scenes_africanfeedback.asp
