Animal Hospital, Alforjis (Lisbon), Trigger, Nate Tucker at DAP
Thu, Oct 3 at 7:30pm
Animal Hospital is often Kevin alone constructing music from scratch w/ an array of sounds containing enough parts to employ - at times- many musicians referencing many familiar aspects of rock and pop as well as more conceptual perceptions of what people consider music. As of 2011, Animal Hospital has explored new avenues for live performance in large ensemble formats and sound installation.
Alforjis (Lisbon, Portugal)
The Lisbon trio is composed of Mestre André on electronics and saxophone, Bernardo Álvares on contrabass
and Raphael Soares on drums.
Alforjs is a strange saddlebag on the back of the muleteer that crosses different landscapes,
traditions and rituals that fill it with different artefacts and relics. Deformed from the swelling
provoked by all these cultural objects he collects, its original weft is what unites all these references
and transports them to another existence, in a new form.
Trigger (NY, NY)
"Trigger blew my mind and many others as they ripped through a set of John Zorn's Bagatelles in Victoriaville."
