4124 Hamilton Ave, Cincinnati 45223
Bay Area musician Andrew Weathers plays The Listing Loon and is opened for by three solo, acoustic sets from thee local music scene's guitarists most closely associated with effected modification of sound/electronic manipulation of their instrument. On a Saturday.
«My name is Andrew Weathers, I’m a composer and improviser from Chapel Hill, North Carolina. I was born in 1988 to parents from North Carolina and Texas. For a while I lived in Greensboro, NC, where I received a BM in Music Composition from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Now I live in Oakland, CA, where I studied Electronic Music at Mills College. I play guitar and banjo with occasional electronic augmentation.
My music blurs composition, improvisation, and appropriation, taking key elements from folk, experimental, and punk traditions. I’m interested in using a minimal amount of source material and I’m interested in repeating myself. Art is a vehicle for social change, a means to create the world we want from what we have. I think the world at large could learn a lot from the DIY music community. I’m interested in the internet connecting us, but using it to make real world connections.
I perform solo and head up a group called Andrew Weathers Ensemble. I also regularly perform and record as a part of Parties, Kirtan Choir, and Tethers. I’ve collaborated with Christopher Willits, Bicameral Mind, Andrew Marino, Squadda B, Tatsuya Nakatani, Lukas Ligeti, Laurent Estoppey, Tanner Menard, Brian John Mitchell, and Hal McGee, live and on record. I’ve studied with Fred Frith, Roscoe Mitchell, Eugene Chadbourne, Mark Engebretson, and Alejandro Rutty.»
Pete Fosco (Acoustic)
Pete Fosco, etc
We are completely abandoning everything we know. To stand naked in the sun. Why. Why is this happening. Sonic zen drone noise maestro presents long form blues/raga pieces, extended controlled improvisations in open tuning performed on an acoustic guitar.
Troy Gallagher (Acoustic)
Amnesiac Mnemonist, Pisswater Preachers, etc
For some incomprehensible reason relating to hubris, insanity, and idiocy we agreed to this. This is ridiculous and preposterous. Free chromaticism/atonal/polytonal/ prog-folk compositions in standard tuning performed with no improvisation at all on an acoustic guitar.
Fritz Pape (Acoustic)
ZIjnzijn Zijnzijn, Build Us Fiction, etc.
Literally why. Why can we not say no. It wouldn't be hard just to have said no. Master manipulator of long sequential links of modification devices and sorcerer of self-imploding sonic mantras insanely and with great risk attempts to frantically present his concept in some sort of tuning on an acoustic guitar. Just an acoustic guitar.
