Saturday 13

likes it when the audience appreciates a full body massage and falls asleep; his multi-oscillator sine waves correspond with not only the physical audience but also with the interior architecture; this Stockholm-based maverick will now do his first "real" New York concert since the debut at CBGBs in 1990    freq-out.org, cmvonhausswolff.net    elgaland-vargaland.org    niklasbelenius.com

  Leslie Ross (New York)

Friday 19

In this program discrete and microscopic nuances are highlighted and given a place in space when the instrument - bassoon - is micro-miked with numerous microphones: each source sent to its own speaker (placing the listener inside the player and instrument) - boundary terrain is opened and explored as definition between timbre and pitch dissolve    leslieross.net
