PANEL DISCUSSION at MOCAD
Thursday, June 30th at 7PM
Sound in Context: A History of Noise
FROM MOCAD'S WEBSITE:
"This panel discussion seeks to provide context both to MOCAD's music programming for the evening of July 1st with Hunting Lodge, Lichens and Michael Dec, as well as a broader understanding of the history and context of the music that today's culture has deemed "noise." From Luigi Russolo and the Futurists to John Cage, Anthony Braxton and Lou Reed, and from Les Rallizes Dénudés and the Boredoms to Animal Collective and Wolf Eyes, the history of "music" presented as sound and art has been long and well documented. To a large group of forward thinking artisans the terms music, noise and art are non-exclusive. This discussion will be include artist and musician Davin Brainard from the long running performance art/noise music group Princess Dragon Mom and the art collective/record label TIME STEREO; Cary Loren of highly influential Michigan-based proto-noise band Destroy All Monsters; artist Alivia Zivich who runs the influential noise label AA records and performs as part of the noise ensemble Demons; artist and musician Chip Flynn of the robotic art collective Apetechnology; and Detroit promoter and DJ Greg Baise. This loose conversation and information session will be led Detroit artist and MOCAD Public Program Coordinator Ben Hernandez whose venue Detroit Art Space acted as a hub for the Detroit "noise scene" from 2003-2005. There will be a live presentation of a Luigi Russolo noise machine created and installed Apetechnology. This should be an illuminating discussion for the uninitiated and the curious."
