EARBRAINS: Sonic Research Underground

A rare underground music show in an above ground setting, EARBRAINS includes sets from homespun-rock-noise-Dada band Fat Worm of Error, as well as analog synthesis by composer and performer Keith Fullerton Whitman. David Shively performs a set of new interpretations of Max Neuhaus' electronic realizations of 50s New York School classics, and Caboladies performs intricate live electronics, followed by a unique duo set by Jason Lescalleet and Graham Lambkin.

Phantom Limb: 69°S.
Friday + Saturday, September 23 + 24, 8 PM

69°S. is inspired by Ernest Shackleton's harrowing 1914 expedition to Antarctica. Phantom Limb unites puppetry, dance, film, history, and photography with a score that melds live junk-rock by Skeleton Key, recordings of the Kronos Quartet, and glacial field recordings to create a stunning vision of Antarctica's past, present, and future.

Glasses and bowls touch as they float through pools of water. The fragile sounds of this chance music combine with music created from the building's network activity that plays on two computer-controlled pianos.
