Non-Event and Semata Productions present
a FREE concert of experimental music featuring


Piano Craft Guild (entrance at rear)
791 Tremont Street
Boston, Ma (South End)
8pm FREE!!!

About the artists:

BRANDON LABELLE is an artist and writer working with sounds, places, bodies, and cultural narratives. He presented a solo exhibition at Singuhr galerie in Berlin (2004), and an experimental composition for pirate drummers as part of Virtual Territories, Nantes (2005). His ongoing project to build a library of radio memories, “Phantom Radio”, was presented fall 2006 as part of Radio Revolten, Halle Germany. He is the author of Background Noise: Perspectives on Sound Art (Continuum 2006).

JARROD FOWLER used to be a drummer. His music has become so abstracted and conceptualized that his percussive practice bears little resemblance to that of his contemporaries. His work is influenced by the late- and post-modern fields of philosophy, conceptualism, hip hop, poetry and noise. He is the author of Translation As Rhythm (Errant Bodies 2006).

This concert is supported in part by a grant from the LEF Foundation.

Bryan Eubanks / Vic Rawlings
James Coleman / Ricardo Donoso / Nathan Ahlers
Ryan McGuire
Bryan Eubanks
Originally from the Pacific Northwest, Eubanks is working with the soprano saxophone and electronics in collaborations, installations, and solo performances. He manages a small label, Rasbliutto Recordings, and has presented his music in real-time settings across the US and Europe.

Vic Rawlings
Vic Rawlings is active as an improviser and
instrument builder, specializing in modifications
of existing instruments, creating extensive cello
preparations. He also continually develops an
electronic instrument from extant exposed
circuitry, producing, in effect, a modular analog
synthesizer with a highly unstable interface.
This electronic instrument is paired with a
flexible array of exposed speaker elements,
chosen for their often unpredictable and
idiosyncratic acoustic qualities.

James Coleman

James Coleman has been developing 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. http://www.zuihitsu.net

Ricardo Donoso
Ricardo Donoso is a composer, percussionist and electronic musician from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He has studied film scoring and music synthesis at Berklee college of music, and composition at the New England Conservatory. He currently leads the Calliope quartet, an electro-acoustic outfit focusing primarily on drone and low volume, low-velocity musics. He performs with The Metal and Glass Ensemble who make acoustic soundscapes, using bowed cymbals, tuned glasses, and other sounding devices, as well as performing with various local musicians. Ricardo also founded Semata Productions who host monthly experimental music concerts in the Boston area and a festival 3 times a year called "Cross-Pollenization", which he curates and oversees.
