Yeah, hopefully I can make it. He'll be playing with a friend of mine Trevor Tremaine from Hair Police. Edit: Duh as you already saw.

Yeah I got distracted by A Birthday party & some icecream cake. But you are right I edited it. We hang out in Downtown when me & some of our other friends get together for drinks plus he also rehearses in my basement sometimes @ the Frowny.

Finally some music & performance at the CAC


 

I've supported the CAC through the years & have voiced on numerous times, they really need to use their building & have music and performance art on a regular basis just like Wexner Center in Columbus.

I just received this information -

Blues Quartet
Saturday 9/15 8 pm
Joo Paulo Feliciano is psyched about Saturday’s performance—he's looking forward to seeing his sculpture, The Blues Quartet, respond to live music.
“...although (Sonic Youth guitarist) Lee Ranaldo and I have been friends for more than 10 years, and we've been involved in several projects, this will actually be the first time that we play together.” Joao Paulo Feliciano
Come experience an interactive art and live music performance.
Tickets $7, $5 members. Purchase tickets online or at the CAC.
Please contact Visitor Services for more information 513-345-8400

This live interaction with the electronic sculpture The Blues Quartet brings together influential experimental musicians and artists Joo Paulo Feliciano, his long-time collaborator, composer and electronic-sound producer Rafael Toral, Sonic Youth guitarist and poet Lee Ranaldo and Trevor Tremaine, drummer for Hair Police and Death Unit.

Each member of this quartet has roots in both contemporary art and the experimental music scene. Not only did Portuguese artist Joo Paulo Feliciano perform in bands that opened for Sonic Youth, he also designed an alternative album cover for the band. His sculpture, The Blues Quartet, alters the environment of CAC's Kaplan Hall Lobby with its unpredictable light-and-music installation.

Rafael Toral, of Lisbon, Portugal, has long collaborated with Feliciano. Ambient layers and resonant, electronic textures characterize his guitar work. Utilizing everything from reverberation to resonant frequencies, he harvests an unprecedented diversity of sound from a single electric guitar to his create his intricate, fluid compositions.

Lee Ranaldo was named one of the top guitarists of all time by Rolling Stone Magazine (http://www.rollingstone.com/news/sto...s_of_all_time). Co-founder of Sonic Youth, one of indie and punk's most influential bands, Ranaldo's career in rock spans more than a quarter century. A pioneer of new techniques and new guitar-playing styles, this world-renowned experimental artist successfully blends the energetic reductionism of punk with the intense abundance of ambient rock.

Lexington-based drummer Trevor Tremaine is as comfortable providing delicate textural drumming as he is pounding out more violent percussion. He has described the music his experimental band Hair Police performs as "ridiculous," "random," "ethereal" and "chaotic." Earlier this year, Death Unit, Tremaine's project with Bjork collaborator Chris Corsano and notable noise musicians Carlos Giffoni and Brian Sullivan, released Infinite Death, an album including live recordings and a track recorded at Sonic Youth's Echo Canyon Studio. Additionally, Tremaine has toured and recorded with Cincinnati's underground star, C. Spencer Yeh, as a part of Yeh's Burning Star Core lineup, as well as Lexington's Arms and Eyes of Smoke with electronics specialist Robert Beatty and others.

In 1966, the Velvet Underground played a gig at Cincinnati's Contemporary Arts Center (CAC).In 1990, the CAC's curator was dragged out of the museum in handcuffs by the local constabulary, arrested for the crime of displaying photographs to the public in an art museum. Last month, CAC's recently-departed associate curator Matt Distel contributed to the museum's storied history by organizing a display of large colored lightbulbs, created by Portuguese artist Joo Paulo Feliciano (no relation to Jos). The art installation was called "The Blues Quartet," ostensibly because the various quartets of colored lightbulbs were intended to symbolically represent a touring rock band. To add some starpower to the display, Feliciano (a musician himself) traveled from Portugal to Cincinnati to play a gig in the museum's atrium. For the voyage, Feliciano brought along his Portuguese homey, Ecstatic Peace/Table of The Elements/Tomlab/Dexter's Cigar recording artist Rafael Toral, who in turn invited Sonic Youth guitarist Lee Ranaldo on-board. C. Spencer Yeh and Trevor Tremaine were local additions to the combo.
Amazingly, more than 200 people turned up for the extemely avant-garde gig, including basically anyone who's anyone in the (usually separate) Cincy arts and music scenes. Perhaps even more amazingly, most of the 200+ attendees hung around even after the combo began playing, and a few were even observed filling entire spiral slambooks with notes transcribed copiously throughout the performance. (Perhaps an Artforum review of the gig awaits publication?). The audience's patience was admirable because the one-hour set consisted entirely of raw avant-garde "improvisation," neither notated nor, seemingly, rehearsed. Lee Ranaldo hit the back of his electric guitar with several different hammers, but never actually strummed a chord or played a riff. For the entire hour, Rafael Toral danced athletically with an electronic black box that generated raw feedback. I don't know what the device was: it most resembled a Theremin, except that unlike a Theremin Toral's knob-laden box needed to be touched to be played. From time to time, the device generated very interesting sounds. This was fortunate because Toral never picked up any other instrument. Spencer Yeh eschewed his customary violin, instead opting to do some throat-singing (guttural sounds only, no words). Only the drummer, Trevor Tremaine, really attempted to hold things together. A Kentuckian, Tremaine adhered mostly to the Britt Walford School of Drumming, and there's nothing wrong with that. (The visual artist, Joo Paulo Feliciano, played chord progressions on a keyboard somewhat ineffectually, and, during the set, generally resembled a gatecrasher at his own party).
Although unstructured avant-garde noodling isn't really my cup of tea, I felt an embarrassing burst of civic pride over the fact that something like this could take place in Cincinnati, and a teaspoonful of joy that I could be there when it did. According to Feliciano, this gig drew a larger audience to CAC than the Velvets drew there in 1966; Plus a Change, Plus Ce N'est Pas la Mme Chose.
