August 8 WarmUp: Music Committee of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company: Stephan Moore and David Behrman, Eats Tapes, Lovefingers, Master Khan, and special guests
Saturday, August 8, 2009
2:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Today's installation of Warm Up includes Stephan Moore and David Behrman of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company Music Committee, Eats Tapes, Lovefingers, and Master Khan (Stilove4Music) along with special surprise guests.
Stephan Moore is a Brooklyn sound artist whose work relies on the collection and use of real world sound, perception of sonic environments, improvisation and interactivity. David Behrman has been active as a composer and artist since the 1960s, making sound and multimedia installations for gallery spaces as well as concert music. The MCDC was founded in 1953 by Modernist choreographer Merce Cunningham, who commissioned more new music by American composers than any other single choreographer.
Eats Tapes is the West coast duo of Marijke Jorritsma and Gregory Zifcak. Known for a joyful sort of analog techno punctuated with plenty of circuit-bending and feedback-looping, these giddy genre-mashers have garnered a diverse following that spans the Bay area's club, punk, psychadelic noise, and art rock scenes.
"Cosmic disco revivalist" Lovefingers spins a high-energy hybrid of the synthy and the soulful, the psychadelic and the the pastoral. His sound bears influences of Balearic and italo techno, with a happy eclecticism that keeps the dancefloor turned on.
With a moniker based on Marvel Comics' most sinister of sorcerers, Master Khan is a real life wizard known for spinning a hypnotic blend of house infused with disco classics, boogie and soul.
