AD HOC #3: Tim Feeney, Vic Rawlings and Casey Anderson

An evening of metamusical potential . . . exploring austere combinations of sound and the otherworldy ripple effects that pulse through a silent space of alert ears.

Details

Tim Feeney and Vic Rawlings have performed together as a duo since meeting within Boston’s “lowercase” improvising community in 2005. Their music explores an unpredictable relationship with making sounds, achieved by elaborate preparation and extension of acoustic soundboxes, such as drums or cello, and expanded via original electronic instruments, ranging from naked circuitboards to amplified kitchen objects. They focus on the metamusical potential of unstable sounds and silences, exploring austere combinations of sound and the otherworldy ripple effects that pulse through a silent space or alert ears. The group has toured throughout the United States, and released its first CD, In Six Parts, on the Sedimental label in fall 2007. Upcoming releases include Ithaca Recordings, for The Watchful Ear, and Fairchild Chapel for Homophoni.

Casey Anderson is an artist working in a number of media, including composition, improvisation, electronic music, saxophone, text, and installations. He has performed with Jason Kahn, Ulrich Krieger, MKM, Fomoudou Don Moye, Michael Pisaro, Ishmael Wadada Leo Smith, Mark Trayle, and the Dog Star Orchestra. Performances, exhibitions, and residencies include MOCA — Los Angeles (CA), ISSUE Project Room (NY), STEIM (NL), Atlantic Center for the Arts (FL), and Mass MOCA (MA). He currently lives and teaches in Los Angeles, California, and works with Machine Project.
