Hot off the heels of a spoken word album that isn’t even hot off the presses yet, I’ll be on stage to perform from that album. As luck would have it, I’m the secret fifth member, for one night only, of an experimental music quartet named Second Land. My musical instrumentation is likely to include a radio and a slinky. More to the point, I’ll be lending spoken word to the performance.
That’s Sunday, Jan 25th at Pyramid Atlantic. 8230 Georgia Avenue, Silver Spring MD 20910. 6:30 P.M. Other acts include Cannot Be Stopped, and the wonderfully titled This Bag is Not a Toy.
It’s all part of a larger movement called Sonic Circuits.
The Sonic Circuits Festival of Experimental Music was initiated by the American Composers Forum (ACF) to provide DC’s music and art communities with the opportunity to sample experimental and avant-garde electronic music, with an emphasis on improvisation and artistic use of new technologies. Now heading into its eighth year, the festival includes electroacoustic compositions, experimental jazz, noise rock, electronic drone and experimental folk, as well as live video and film programs.
