Live Free & Improvise Free-er

Curt Oren has a monthly improvisational evening at the Trumpet Blossom, in Iowa City. He asked I/OWAR to do some improvised projections at the October event.

livefree

===================================
The Iowa City FREE Improvised Art Series is back for the third installment, with all new improvisers including some fantastic musicians from OUT OF TOWN.

Opening the performances will be a saxophone trio consisting of series curator and local drunken cheese eater Curt Oren, area legend/wolfman Pete Balestrieri and Topher Dunlap, resident of Schmidt Artist Lofts in St. Paul, Minnesota.

While this music is being performed, Sean Thomas Boyt, Iowa City dancer extraordinaire, will be improvising choreography on the Trumpet Blossom stage.

Next the volume gets turned up as Joe Heurmann, Kyle Arthur Miller, and Cory Healey join forces to join your eardrums to your stomach. Cory is a world class (literally, if you only count North America and Europe!) drummer out of Minneapolis, and has played extensively in the Free Jazz scenes of New York City, Chicago, and the Twin Cities. Some of his most recent gigs include playing a teen beauty pageant and monster truck rally with country/western band The Farmer’s Daughters

While all of this is happening, Jay Schleidt and friends will be performing completely improvised video projections all over the walls of Trumpet Blossom, creating a complete aural/visual experience wherever you’re seated. Prepare yourselves.

This is going to be an experience unlike any other, and will never be repeated again!!!! Come see what the Iowa City arts scene is capable of in the best venue in town, FOR FREE.

Speaking of free, did you know gas is very expensive, the Twin Cities are far away, and Cory and Topher are both full time gigging musicians that deserve to be paid well for their amazing work? We’ll be passing a donation jar around to help them make this trip financially viable, as well as to thank them for sharing their music with us! $5 would go so much farther than you think to help them keep doing their thing, and would be very, very appreciated.

SUPPORT THE ARTS. SUPPORT AMAZING LOCAL BUSINESSES. COME.

p.s in order to keep this event all ages, it MUST be done before 10, which means we’re starting this on time whether you show up or not! SO SHOW UP ON TIME.

How Do You PS1?

How do you PS1? is an open house for the area’s most mysterious arts, music, production, and presentation venue. You can expect: open studios for our resident artists, inflatables from our public projects team, information dispersed about how the community can utilize our enigmatic structure (ANSWERS!) as well as our traditionally untraditional entertainment standards such as comedy improv from Paperback Rhino (a 20 minute teaser set at 8pm!), an audio/video installation from Jay Schleidt & Tom Buckholz, a closing reception for So Young Gupton’s hope•less installation, and some cardistry from JR Martins. Part fundraiser (we may ask for a buck or two), part information fair. All celebration.

Didn’t get a picture or recording during our installation.

Abe Undent performance

KBD flyer

My first performance as Abe Undent.  I used remote controlled power switches to create a 3D sound environment, which I moved through and manipulated tape players, microtapes, reel to reels, a record player, a microphone / loop pedal, and a digital recorder, while the audience sat at a long table eating Indian food, and my projections splattered the wall and ceiling.

Allison Prideaux exhibit / Talonescu performance

November 18th, 2010 at the White Lightning Wherehouse in Iowa City……
(flyers by Yobleart)

(flyer by Jay Schleidt)

Allison Prideaux exhibited some of her artwork (of which I was a collaborator on a few pieces), id m theft able relished us with a breathtaking monologuous improvisational stupefying ode to his newly deceased dog, Phil Ochs did four guitar songs as Star City, and Talonescu did some short triangulated-amp pieces (that’s Point From Rooftops, Yobleart, and myself).  Here are the only pictures and recordings we were able to get before the batteries died……
