Joshua Fried’s RADIO WONDERLAND
Paul Amitai with Lady Firefly
Glissando Bin Laden and his MusicHadeen
We happily welcome Joshua Fried’s solo project RADIO WONDERLAND back to
the LEMURplex stage in October. Also, Paul Amitai with the video artist
Lady Firefly, and Glissando Bin Laden and His MusicHadeen will be
hitting tranzducer.010 on Friday, October 26. Just to whet your
palate…think steering wheels, shoes, midi controllers, vocals, video
and improv… all producing fun, electronic music for the masses. Always
a sensory experience, the sound is great, the drinks are cheap, and there
is just no way to spend a better Friday night on 3rd Avenue.
RADIO WONDERLAND, Joshua Fried’s solo project, gets all its source
material from a live FM radio. The show is completely local, immediate
and live in every sense (including different-every-time). No sounds are
stored before the performance. Anything picked up over the course of the
show is fair game throughout. All processing is in Max/MSP on the
laptop, controlled by old shoes hit with sticks and a vintage Buick
steering wheel. Joshua Fried has jammed at Lincoln Center, Club 57,
Galapagos, the Kitchen, the Dutch Royal Palace, Tokyo’s trippy ICC and a
street corner in Gowanus. He’s remixed Chaka Khan and They Might Be
Giants and others. He teaches Max MSP and is the youngest composer in
Schirmer Book’s *American Music in the 20th C*
Paul Amitai is a musician and media artist who performs electronic and
improvised music in clubs and art spaces around the U.S. As both a solo
performer and a member of various bands, Amitai has shared the stage
with a diverse range of musicians, including Run-DMC, The Skatalites,
The Specials, Califone, and Crooked Fingers. His installation work has
been exhibited at venues such as Scope New York, Art Chicago, Soap
Factory (Minneapolis), and Exchange Square (Manchester, UK). In addition
to work as a practicing artist, Amitai has written on electronic arts
and culture for New Art Examiner, Signal to Noise, MTV, and The Onion.
He was also the creator and curator of the New York Festival of
Electronic Composers and Improvisers at the Knitting Factory. Amitai is
currently exhibitions and public programs coordinator at Eyebeam.
Fusing the surreal with the sensual, Lady Firefly (Zarah Cabanas) has
splashed her electrorganic videoworks and mixes in spaces, galleries,
music venues, and events all over NYC, most recently at the American
Museum of Natural History, and at the River to River Festival, Nublu,
Tonic (its spirit lives!) and Share. Firefly has participated in
festivals in Australia, Spain, and most recently in Russia at the
Apositsia III Experimental Music Forum as a VJ and saxophonist; While
her video artwork at Blue Man Group has appeared on performances with DJ
Tiesto and earlier this month on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
Glissando Bin Laden and His MusicHadeen
New York’s Glissando Bin Laden and His MusicHadeen (Alex Ness, Jim
Altieri, Meighan Stoops, and Sam Pluta) are a microtonal improvising
noise quartet set to terrorize your occipital lobe with their unique
blend of droning and crackling violins, clarinets, and electronics.
