Monday: Electroacoustic Music


Monday, October 3, 2011
10 Channel Center St.
8PM  suggested donation $10

Simon Scott (Miasmah / Sonic Pieces / Immune)

Simon Scott is an electroacoustic composer and sound artist based in Cambridge, England. Drawing from his shoegaze past and a curiosity for the ecology of sounds, he crafts expansive, haunted soundscapes navigated by fragments of songs and faraway melodies to create an ephemeral sonic journey. His second full length LP for Miasmah, following up on the critically acclaimed ‘Navigare’ is due early October.

Besides his solo work, Simon has also released with the band Seavault, co-produced and remixed artists including The Sight Below, ON and Jasper TX and produced sound designs for a number of installations, short films and television stations.

"Scott is particularly adept at layering coolly shimmering guitars and dark churning currents of noise into something vast". "A haunting aspect of 'Navigare' is how it seems to contain traces of tunes that stand out like half-forgotten relics of the past" (The Wire - Dec'09).”

A full stream ‘Navigare’ and an excerpts from the forthcoming album ‘Bunny’ are available here:

Taylor Deupree and Marcus Fischer (12K)

A long-standing experimental electronic composer and founder of the 12k label, Taylor Deupree and Portland, OR-based musician and multimedia artist Marcus Fischer will be performing as a duo. Using a “network of guitar pedals and instruments ranging from analog synthesizers to sticks collected while photographing” the two will be playing the sonic component of their music and photography collaboration due to be released on 12k. Textural and quiet, their music feels like the exploration of a landscape: spacious, contemplative and scattered with details. A preview is available here:

Taylor Deupree (from Shoals - 12k, 2010)

Marcus Fischer (from Monocoastal - 12k, 2010)

Peter Whincop (MIT)

Peter Whincop is from Napier, New Zealand. He currently teaches Electronic Music Composition at MIT, and received degrees in Music Theory and Composition from University of Otago and Harvard University. Formerly a pianist, he now performs under the name anonymous-∞, also a nexus website for free dissemination of his work (under construction). He also paints and draws, incorporating the processes into video work, which ultimately is a project in making “documentals.” These document the fringes of “acceptable sanity”—though the project itself is quite conservative, lacking the flights of fancy that it documents.

Tonight: Lisa Greenfield at Made in Fort Point

Made in Fort Point (the FPAC store) will be exhibiting the paintings of Lisa M. Greenfield, "On The Edge" for the month of September. Greenfield's paintings explore themes of color, surface, space, and edge. A twist on the urban landscape, Greenfield's minimal approach to architecture, with subtle use of color and form, creates spatial ambiguities and shifts or foreground and background.

Lisa Greenfield is an artist and urban planner with a BA in Fine Arts from Brandeis University. She has been an active member of the Fort Point Arts Community for many years. Greenfield has received numerous grants and awards, including most recently the St. Botolph Club Foundation 2011 Emerging Artist Award.  Show dates: Sept 1 - Sept 30, 2011

Opening Reception: Thursday September 8th, 5-7 pm
Made in Fort Point, 12 Farnsworth St., Boston, MA  
Meet the artist and enjoy complimentary refreshments from
FPAC, Sportello, and Sagarinos
