Pyramid Atlantic Benefit Show with Attila Faravelli, Vector Trio, Exatari, Colla Parte
Our annual post-bloody-two-headed-turkey-day benefit show for Pyramid Atlantic.
Attila Faravelli lives and works in Milano (Italy). In his practice he explores the relationship between sound, space and body. His solo music is released by Die Schachtel and Senufo Editions, in duo w/Andrea Belfi (Tumble) he released on Die Schachtel, on Boring Machines with Nicola Ratti and on Presto!? with the artist Nicola Martini. Together with Enrico Malatesta and Nicola Ratti he is founder of the trio ~Tilde. He presented his work in Europe, USA, Cina and South Korea. In 2010 he participated to the 12th International Biennial of Architecture in Venice. Since 2011 he curates The Lift series of experimental music concerts. In 2012 he was chosen as the italian curator for the Sounds of Europe project. He is founder and curator for the Aural Tools project, a series of simple objects to document the material and conceptual processes of specific musicians’ sound production practice. Aural Tools are acoustic devices for relating sound to space, the listener, and the body in ways unavailable through traditional recorded media such as CDs or LPs.
Vector Trio--Scott Forrey (trumpet), Gary Rouzer (cello), and Marshall Hughey (drums, percussion) have been playing together in various incarnations for almost two decades, making free, improvised music in and around the Washington, DC area.
Derek Morton, alumnus of NYC's Brown Wing Overdrive (Tzadik) and one half of noise drone outfit Mikroknytes (Crank Automotive/Kavekavity) flys solo with an electronic project called Exatari. Morton has finished a music collaboration with Neil Campbell of Vibracathedral Orchestra / Astral Social Club and will be hitting the stage with new sonics and visuals.

Kiatsu: The Sound of The Sky Being Torn (Angus Carlyle and Rupert Cox, 2010)
"Kiatsu" is a collaboration between anthropologist Rupert Cox and artist Angus Carlyle. It draws on their experiences of recording the activities of the last farming family living within the concrete and steel infrastructure of Japan's largest airport, where noise - of taxiing and of take-offs and landings - exerts a constant pressure from before dawn until well after dusk. The work has also been informed by an extended collaboration with Professor Kozo Hiramatsu (the UK President of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science), who participated in the second period of fieldwork and who has provided us with the perspective of acoustic science.
