What’s that ringing in my ear?

The Albany Sonic Arts Collective’s 2011 season kicked off with the aptly titled “Deep Freeze: Experimental Music for Snowy Times,” last Saturday at the Upstate Artists Guild in Albany. The event was well attended – not a folding plastic chair to spare, despite the lack of video backdrop.

First up was the guitar-wielding duo Mark Lunt and Chris Bassett – collectively know as Insect Posse – who coxed tone and feedback from their instruments including their feet with great effect. Self described as “purveyors of noisy yet hypnotic hymns to other worlds of nothingness.”



Be Here Now: soundbarn & ASAC Play Rhys Chatham’s “Guitar Trio” @ Saratoga Arts Center, 11/20/10

Friday, November 19th, 2010

(January 27, 2007 performance of “Guitar Trio” as performed by Rhys Chatham, Thurston Moore, Lee Renaldo, David Daniell, Kim Gordon, Colin Langenus, Alan Licht, Robert Longo, Byron Westbrook, Adam Wills – electric guitars; Ernst Brooks III – electric bass; Jonathan Kane – drums)

Written in 1977, “Guitar Trio” is Rhys Chatham’s signature composition. With a single, repeated chord, “Guitar Trio” (or “G3,” as it was later renamed to accommodate increased instrumentation of six to ten electric guitars) is a collision of the textural intricacies of the avant-garde and the visceral punch of electric guitar-slinging punk rock.
