- the Coup d’etat music series -

James Coleman / Lou Cohen
The Human Hairs
Max Lord

James Coleman has been develop ing and updating new languages and sonic deployment for the Theremin, arguably the first electronic music instrument, in contemporary and creative musics for the past 10 years. Primarily working in improvisation, he is an active performer and recordist in the United States, and has performed with Jaap Blonk, Axel Doerner, Stephen Drury, Peter Kowald, Chris Mann, Lionel Marchetti, Joe McPhee, Jerome Noetinger, Pauline Oliveros, Eddie Prevost, Steve Roden, and has primary collaborations with Boston area musicians, many of whom are in the BSC. www.zuihitsu.net


Lou Cohen, composer, performer and digital animator, has been writing algorithmic music for over 50 years. He studied with John Cage and others, and his music has been presented in many venues in Boston and beyond. Lou has performed with John Cage, Merce Cunningham, Christian Wolff, Ken Ueno, Tim Feeney, Vic Rawlings, Jack Wright, Katt Hernandez, and many others. Lou improvises live sound and live animation.




The HUMAN HAIRS is a boy-girl duo dedicated to extended vocal techniques and arch art jokes, aided and abetted by noisemakers, karate outfits, rare old sound poetry records, last week’s newspapers, and bad synthesizers. The band began in 2007, but is already making a splash around their native Somerville, Massachusetts by playing in galleries and bars to the ear-plugging befuddlement of locals. Screeching, squealing, purring, yelling, blubbering, snorting, talking like Donald Duck, gargling, whispering, and spitting cough drops across the room are only a few of this band’s finely honed skills. Saul Jacobowitz and Angela Sawyer make a great big mess that’s fun for all.


Max Lord is a percussionist who works with treated instruments and electronic sound. He is one of few musicians to adopt the Buchla Marimba Lumina, an expressive electronic mallet instrument. His drumset is often augmented by boxes of wires, large sheets of metal, and most recently amplified wire brushes. As an improvisor, he is known for restless changes of mood and texture, a sense for the absurd and frequent high-volume excursions. Last year he decided he should have a CD and released Electronic Music 2000-2005, a compilation of moody studio experiments with Marimba Lumina and the kitchen sink of electric tricks. He performs somewhat regularly in the northeast, both solo and in group improv situations.
