Wally Gunn: Moonlite Variant 6, Mobius Percussion, Veronica Jurkiewicz

1325 N Randolph St, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19122, USA
Bowerbird is pleased to present Moonlite, a new work by composer Wally Gunn and librettist Maria Zajkowski performed by Variant 6, Mobius Percussion and Veronica Jurkiewicz. Moonlite concert-length oratorio is based on the true story of the 19th-century Australian outlaw Andrew George Scott, known as “Captain Moonlite.” Captain Moonlite—a rogue, a brigand, a criminal, and a queer—is an outsider who chafes at the constraints of Victorian-era society. He dreams of founding a utopia for himself and the lover he met in prison, James Nesbitt. Unable to make a life in society upon their release, Scott and Nesbitt resign themselves to living outside it, and in pursuing this end, the pair, by misconduct and misfortune, fall foul of the law. Banding together with some other misfits, they set off on a gruelling trek through Australia’s arid outback and find themselves in a series of increasingly desperate situations which culminate in a stand-off and shoot-out with police. An officer is shot and killed, and Nesbitt, also shot fatally, dies in Scott’s arms. Scott, stricken and defeated, is imprisoned and sentenced to death by hanging for his crimes. In his cell, he writes heartrendingly of his love for Nesbitt, his terrible loss, and his hope that he will be reunited with his lover in the next world.

4014 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104
Bowerbird is pleased to present an evening of screened and live audio visual shorts including the Philadelphia premiere of Phill Niblock’s newly mastered 1966 film The Magic Sun – an experimental work featuring Sun Ra and His Solar Arkestra that was produced using a unique negative process and ultra-tight close-ups on the moving hands and mouths of the musicians.  Also screened will be Philadelphia dance artist Terry Fox’s Citizens’ Footbook. These video “fillers” were created by Terry Fox in collaboration with filmmaker David Rosenberg and WHYY-TV12 and Philadelphia musicians Jeff Cain and Charles Cohen, and were aired between main programs on WHYY-TV for about a year in 1980.  Live performances on the evening will be given by members of Philly A|V, a new collective whose work is at the intersection of sound, movement, video, digital processing, and other experimental media techniques.

PhilaMOCA

Hotel Neon + Lowercase Noises + Slow Meadow

531 N 12th St, Philadelphia, PA 19123
This is a record release show for Hotel Neon, who will be sharing their 5th full length album entitled "Vanishing Forms."

Hotel Neon
Hotel Neon is the Philadelphia-based trio of Michael Tasselmyer, Andrew Tasselmyer, and Steven Kemner. Together they create music to get lost in: atmospheric, hazy guitar and electronics, paired with meticulously designed visual projections that combine for an immersive audio/visual experience.

Lowercase Noises
Lowercase Noises is an ambient instrumental project by New Mexico-based composer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Andy Othling. Early experiments with rudimentary recording equipment and a handful of effects pedals eventually led to the release of Othling's first major work, the 2009 full-length release Seafront.

Slow Meadow
Slow Meadow is piano-centered ambient compositions from multi-instrumentalist Matt Kidd. After working as a touring / session musician since the early 2000s, Matt took a serious interest in creating music focused less on performance and more on inner experience. Slow Meadow’s releases have been celebrated by NPR, The New York Observer, and the syndicated radio show, Echoes.

Random Tea Room

Joe Moffett/Zach Rowden/John McCowen & Bonnie Lander/John Dierker

713 North 4th St. Philadelphia, PA 19123
Joe Moffett/Zach Rowden/John McCowen trio:
New York-­based trumpeter and improviser Joe Moffett approaches his work with a keen interest in unconventional sounds and forms, collective composition, solo instrumental performance, and the intersection of words and music. He is a regular participant in the improvised/experimental music scene in Brooklyn and is a co-founder of ensembles such as Earth Tongues, Twins of El Dorado and the Kaplan/Merega/Moffett Trio. His material appears on Neither/Nor, Underwolf, Eh?, NotTwo, and Prom Night Records.

Bonnie Lander/John Dierker duo:Bonnie Lander is an avant-garde soprano, violinist, free improviser, and composer based in Baltimore.  As a performer and composer Bonnie specializes in works that combine free improvisation with structured composition. In the past few years she has developed a series of theatrical works called “Inside Voices.” These works intend for the audience to experience the voices, noises, and emotional narratives in the performer’s mind through the operatic use of timbre, resonance, articulation as well as extended vocal techniques relating to everyday use of the voice. This combination provides a musical exploration of personal experience mixed with confrontational, visceral human expression.

The Mothership

Joe Baiza/Jason Kahn duo, Hermit High Priestess & George Korein and The Spleen

602 S. 52nd St, Philadelphia, PA 19143, USA
Joe Baiza/Jason Kahn duo:
Joe Baiza is a punk rock and improvising guitarist whom Eugene Chadbourne cites as one of the most noteworthy guitarists to emerge from the Southern California punk rock milieu. Baiza is a founding member of the bands Saccharine Trust, Universal Congress Of, and The Mecolodiacs. He also performed guest guitar spots on several Minutemen tracks and played alongside Black Flag’s Greg Ginn and Chuck Dukowski in the SST all-star jam band October Faction, recording two albums with them. Baiza was also part of the musical side project Nastassya Filippovna which featured Bob Lee (drums), Devin Sarno (bass) and Mike Watt (bass).

Hermit High Priestess:
“Hermit High Priestess are two wandering spirits informed by an idealistic re-imagining of punk rock, where magic and incantation are as much a part of the punk rock process as are cryptically scrawled black t-shirts. Dani and Anna play music that is heavy, yet still somehow heavenly, forgoing the three-chord stomp and bash of yet another Ramones or Discharge reincarnation. Instead their music, like on “The Rake’s Wave”, a standout track on their forthcoming EP, infuses warm strings, mischievous bass and xylophone lines, along with Anna’s determined, heartfelt vocals ruminating on the necromantic nature of systems that corrupt our dreams.”-Alex Smith/WXPN The Key

George Korein & The Spleen:
George Korein is this guy who was born in a Wawa. A long time ago he was in a duo somebody described as “theatrical noise” called Infidel?/Castro! with metal wunderkind Colin Marston (of Gorguts fame). Since then he has been making many albums as “George Korein and the Spleen”, which tend to be lyric-oriented and thematically grouped. This show will celebrate the release of the new album “Effortless Quest”, a collection of songs exploring some relationships between real life and the concept of adventure. With the help of great Philly musicians, he will perform the album, slightly abridged.

Spires That In The Sunset Rise & Erik Ruin (crankie performance)

1816 Frankford Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19125, United States
Spires That In The Sunset Rise:Spires That in the Sunset Rise have been unsettling and thrilling audiences for over a decade now with their brand of sonic alchemy. Combining traditional acoustic instruments like cello, spike fiddle, banjo, and lately more on flute and saxophone with electric elements and mesmerizing chants, one can call them goth, folk, psychedelic, experimental, electronic – and it all applies. They have four full length releases on labels like Secret Eye and Galactic Zoo Disk and two more on Hairy Spider Legs. The band is paired down to two women these days, each busy performing and releasing solo material as well. Many audiences have seen them expand into pure improvisation lately, but there is still song writing taking place, and often STITSR play the line between the two. Always original, and always pushing themselves into new territory.
Erik Ruin
(crankie performance):
Erik Ruin is a Michigan-raised, Philadelphia-based printmaker, shadow puppeteer, paper-cut artist, etc., who has been lauded by the New York Times for his “spell-binding cut-paper animations.” His work oscillates between the poles of apocalyptic anxieties and utopian yearnings, with an emphasis on empathy, transcendence and obsessive detail. He frequently works collaboratively with musicians, theater performers, other artists and activist campaigns. He is a founding member of the international Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative, and co-author of the book Paths Toward Utopia: Graphic Explorations of Everyday Anarchism (w/ Cindy Milstein, PM Press, 2012).

Vox Populi

Nadah El Shazly & Tagine Dream

319 North 11th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107
Nadah El Shazly:
Nadah El Shazly is a Cairo-based producer, singer, and performer whose ethereal songcraft assimilates impulses from improvised and electronic idioms into an otherworldly modernization of the classical music of Al-Nahda, the Arabic renaissance. Shazly cut her teeth fronting a Misfits cover band and singing jazz standards before discovering the futuristic sensibilities latent in Egyptian music predating the 1940s. Studying the Arabic maqam and delving into granular synthesis, she wrote her acclaimed debut album, 2017’s Ahwar, on a computer between Egypt and Canada, later giving it a lavish instrumental arrangement in collaboration with Maurice Louca and Sam Shalabi, both members of The Dwarfs of East Agouza with Alan Bishop and central figures in Cairo’s new wave. From its diabolically pitch-shifted vocal introduction through to brooding trip-hop beats, African jazz workouts, and lilting bağlama expansions, Ahwar fulfills its title’s invocation of the marshlands, with El Shazly’s soaring voice as the listener’s guide through the unfamiliar.
Nadah El Shazly will be accompanied by Shayna Dulberger on bass.
Shayna Dulberger is an upright bassist, electric bassist and tape collage artist. She has been living and working in NYC since 2001.
Tagine Dream:
Tagine Dream is the noisey guttural child of Rana Fayez, which has been described as riding a droning industrial wave. Equipped with a contact mic, synths, and a snare drum, Tagine Dream tells narratives from memory through sound.

Morton Feldman: Trio Longleash

3637 Chestnut St, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19104
Continuing an already ten year commitment to exploring the music of Morton Feldman, Bowerbird is pleased to present his landmark work Trio (for piano, violin, and cello), performed by NYC based ensemble Longleash.  Originally premiered in 1980, Trio is one of Feldman’s earliest extended duration works (predated by only his String Quartet No. 1).  And though epic in duration (approximately 1 hour 40 mins), the work is threaded together with an intricate patchwork of quiet blocks of sound, pointillistic colors, and wispy melodies that stretch the listener’s musical memory and perception of time. The performance includes work by lighting designer and artist Julie Zhu.

Marshall Allen 95th Birthday Celebration / Record Release Celebration

1026 Spring Garden Street, Philadelphia, PA 19123
The Sun Ra Arkestra has been hailed as one of the greatest big bands of all time, and their maestro Marshall Allen will be celebrating his 95th “arrival day” this year! In celebration, Ars Nova Workshop is presenting the Arkestra with another legendary Philadelphia collective, Sounds of Liberation. Drummer-composer Eli Keszler, best known for his work with Laurel Halo and Oneohtrix Point Never, opens.
Though the iconic Sun Ra left the planet in 1993, his cosmic legacy is proudly maintained by the interstellar sounds of the Arkestra, which now operates under the direction of alto saxophonist Marshall Allen. With a massive, joyous songbook and the kind of well-organized chaos that sees their legendary two-hour sets move deftly between rolling grooves, sing-along chants, and atonal blasts of mischievous brass, the Arkestra remain one of the most unmissable live acts today. In 2018, the 83rd Downbeat Readers Poll saw the Arkestra ranked eighth in the “Big Band” category. In the last year alone, the Arkestra has backed Solange and U2, inspired Lady Gaga to include “Rocket Number Nine” as part of her stage show, and welcomed artists like Kamasi Washington and Shabaka Hutchings to join in the fun, opening up the ears of new music audiences globally to a challenging and uniquely defined sound.

David Murray / Kahil El’Zabar Duo

416 Green Street Philadelphia, PA
Nearly a year to the date from their last sold-out Philadelphia appearance, David Murray and Kahil El’Zabar return to deliver a mesmerizing set of what Buffalo’s Hallwalls space described as “freedom music in its noblest sense, meant to heal and release one from the propaganda of fear currently poisoning our culture.”
David Murray arrived on the mid-70s New York loft-jazz scene as a Pomona College dropout with a furious sax style that also accommodated more lyrical moments from bygone eras of jazz. Simply put, Murray helped carve out a space in the avant garde for tenderness and extend the language of bebop into more volatile territories. The Guggenheim and Grammy award-winning multi-reedist co-founded the World Saxophone Quartet with Julius Hemphill, Oliver Lake, and Hamiet Bluiett, and he solidified his status as a modern jazz icon on landmark recordings with James “Blood” Ulmer, Amiri Baraka, and Jack DeJohnette, as well as his own ensembles. Murray currently splits his time between Paris and Portugal.
Chicago-based percussionist Kahil El’Zabar’s expansive approach to rhythm straddles the line between “ancient and future.” As founder of the Ethnic Heritage Ensemble and former chairman of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM), El’Zabar has sought to not only understand the roots of traditional African rhythms but also explore new avenues to take them down. El’Zabar’s chaotic personal life was the subject of childhood friend Dwayne Johnson-Cochran’s 2017 documentary “Be Known: The Mystery of Kahil El’Zabar,” available to stream now on Amazon Prime.

Ursula Rucker and Madam Data

5th and Market Street Philadelphia PA 19106
URSULA RUCKER
Ursula Rucker is an interdisciplinary poet, performer, and recording artist whose work reflects on personal history, family, and place. She characterizes her work as situated “along the edge of the terrains of poetry.” Rucker has released five albums and collaborated with a wide range of artists outside of the field of poetry, including The Roots, musicians and Pew Fellows Jamaaladeen Tacuma and King Britt, and, most recently, Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Clarence Williams III. She has toured with her live performance memoir, My Father’s Daughter, which she describes as “90 minutes of self-truth and discovery.” In 2017, she collaborated with Nigerian sound and installation artist Emeka Ogboh to create Logan Squared: Ode to Philly, which featured an epic poem by Rucker that reflected Philadelphians’ voices and visions for the city. The work was presented as part of Mural Arts Philadelphia’s Center-supported, citywide Monument Lab exhibition. A Philly 360 Creative Ambassador and recipient of Leeway Foundation’s Transformation Award, Rucker is the subject of the 2008 documentary Ursula Rucker: Poet, directed by Michael J. Dennis.
 
MADAM DATA
Performing as Madam Data, Ada Adhiyatma is a musician who explores machine interfaces and the embodied idea of distance. Working with handmade computer programs, hacked electronics, field recordings and old samplers, they fantasize about sound as a way to echolocate spaces defined by separations, the trauma of dislocation, the impossibility of empathy. Ada’s performance personas in Philadelphia include the apocalyptic insect noise purveyor Madam Data, and various component identities of sci fi noise-thrash quintet OOLOI and the environmental improvisation duo ‘place’. They also produce a podcast of discarded sound called The Floating World.

New Perplexity Daniel Fishkin, Cleek Schrey, Ron Shalom

4014 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104, United States
Bowerbird is pleased to present New Perplexity (Daniel Fishkin, Cleek Schrey, Ron Shalom) in an evening of new works created during their upcoming artists-in-residence at Robert Wilson’s Watermill Center. New Perplexity is a composer-performer collective intent on creating new contexts for the daxophone, a thin hardwood strip played with a bow, created by the German improviser/inventor Hans Reichel in 1987. The instrument’s sound, somewhere between a cello and badger, ranges from furtive gurgles and delicate whistles to wild screams.  In 2015 they performed at Dublin’s Science Gallery as part of Trauma: Built to Break, an exhibition on art and trauma. In 2016 they participated in Daniel Fishkin’s ambitious series of concerts in Philadelphia, supported by The Pew Center, which posed the question “What is Tinnitus Music?”.  As an ensemble of the same instrument, more so than the string quartet or trio, they find themselves in the spiritual lineage of the viol consort. The group improvises, makes original work, and commissions new works from other artists, including a new quartet by the esteemed experimental composer Alvin Lucier. Future collaborations include the electronic music pioneer David Behrman.

Lau Nau:
Lau Nau is one of the more interesting names in the contemporary music scene in Finland. Her songs are imbued with a cinematic breadth of vision and her idiosyncratic, finely honed sound world builds on fragile, spectral otherness. She works using both acoustic and electronic instruments, from field recordings to analogue synthesizers, from vocals and traditional instruments to musique concrete and found objects.
Besides of performing as Lau Nau, she composes, produces and performs music for new films, silent films, theatre, dance and sound installations. Her works have been nominated to various music prizes as Teosto-, Emma-, Jussi- and Femma prizes.“Special Guests”:While there’s no denying they are special, the composition of this group is no secret.
“Special Guests” are the unnamed/unnameable trio of Tara Burke (Fursaxa, etc), Brooke Sietinsons (Espers, etc) & Nathalie Shapiro performing homespun drone music with vocals, harmonium & guitar.
Jeffrey Alexander:

A mainstay of the Chicago jazz scene and an active recent addition to the New York scene, Jaimie Branch is an avant-garde trumpeter known for her “ghostly sounds,” says The New York Times, and for “sucker punching” crowds straight from the jump off, says Time Out. Her classical training and “unique voice capable of transforming every ensemble of which she is a part” (Jazz Right Now) has contributed to a wide range of projects not only in jazz but also punk, noise, indie rock, electronic and hip-hop. Branch’s work as a composer and a producer, as well as a sideman for the likes of William Parker, Matana Roberts, TV on the Radio and Spoon, is all on display in her debut record Fly or Die – a dynamic 35-minute ride that dares listeners to open their minds to music that knows no genre, no gender, no limits.
 
SEBASTIAN (DARKLY) PETSU
Sebastian (Darkly) Petsu makes sound art centered on live manipulation of cassettes, the components used to play them, and controlled microphone feedback. In his sonic work. he aims to create a combined sense of pulsing, swirling, and growling.
