The soundBarn presents:
A Thousand Fibers
-- An evening of experimental sound with members of Albany Sonic Arts Collective and the soundBarn.
Insect Posse--- "First up was the guitar-wielding duo Mark Lunt and Chris Bassett collectively know as Insect Posse – who coxed tone and feedback from there [sic] instruments including their feet with great effect." Nippertown
Fossils From the Sun-- Ray Hare (Century Plant...s, Burnt Hills, Twilight of the Century, etc) delivers hypnotic and haunting motifs, feedback trails gently coaxed into existence and an addictive reminder of why the electric guitar remains a mainstay of modern music.
Holland Hopson-- a composer, improviser and electronic artist, Holland was Metroland's "Retro-futurist" of the year in 2010.
soundBarn is the experimental music duet of Thomas Lail and Patrick Weklar. "soundBarn had at it with mallets, bows, possibly screwdrivers and a fleet of effect pedals. Both Lail and Weklar were founding members of long-ago Albany post-punk band the Fauves." Nippertown
Albany Sonic Arts Collective and soundBarn have collaborated on numerous projects including full-length performances of Rhys Chatham’s famed “Guitar Trio” at Flywheel in Easthampton, Ma. and Saratoga Arts in Saratoga Springs, NY.
The soundBarn is a project of artist/musician Thomas Lail and artist/gallerist Tara Fracalossi and is located on what was once Heald Orchards in Valatie, New York. The soundBarn has recently initiated soundBarn Press publishing limited editions of poetry and experimental writing by associates of The soundBarn and related others. Forthcoming publications include poetry by musician/artist/writer and founding member of rock band Sonic Youth Lee Ranaldo and poetry/writings by artist James Cullinane.
Albany Sonic Arts Collective is a grassroots organization located in and around Albany, NY dedicated to building a thriving community of listeners and performers of music that exists outside of traditional boundaries with a special emphasis on forms that stress freedom and exploration of new ideas.
