So far i have my ticket for Earth & Melvins. Haven't purchased one for The Residents, 'cause i don't have an idea yet of how much would the tickets cost for the other events. I'd like to get to all of those shows, but i'm gonna have to spend money on transportation and a (perhaps) seedy motel. I'm possibly gonna have to skip some performances if the costs are too high for me in the end.

Anyway, there's still some lack of information. All is a bit vague right now, but i've got plenty of hope that i'll be there.

Text of Light
Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth), Alan Licht, Tim Barnes, Ulrich Krieger y Stan Brakhage (EU)

Jueves 17 de marzo, 19:30
Cineteca Nacional (sala 2)
Donativo : $ 250


Text of Light fue formado en 1999 con la idea de improvisar música para las películas de Stan Brakhage y otros miembros del cine norteamericano avant-garde de los cincuenta y sesenta. La premisa original fue improvisar (no “ilustrar”) las películas de este período poco conocido del cine poético norteamericano.
Los integrantes del grupo son: Lee Ranaldo y Alan Licht (guitarra, dispositivos y efectos), Ulrich Krieger (saxofón y electrónica), y el más reciente, Tim Barnes (batería y percusiones). El grupo se ha presentado en festivales como el Victoriaville Music Festival de Canadá; el Three Rivers Film Festival de Pittsburgh; el Walker Art Center en Minneapolis; el Centre Georges Pompidou; el The Whitney Museum de Nueva York y han realizado varias giras por Europa.

El concierto comenzará con una selección de películas experimentales relacionadas con la obra de Brakhage curada por Eric Namour.

I loved the show. Will try to post a description as accurate as i'm able to muster when time permits, hopefully soon.

Here are some pics stolen from Aural Festival's facebook page:

Hopefully some others pics will appear in some other places soon. There were raining flashes all over Lee. Against the nature of the show, some people in the audience were snapping shot after shot for most of the performance. Guess it hasn't ever crossed their minds that such ridiculous amount of flashes could be annoying for the musicians performing.

cool pictures. yeah the digital photo things is out of control, its not just annoying for the musicians but the audience. I like to take some shots but don't use the flash - my digital camera seems to send out some kind of red ray and even that I saw distract a player so I stopped. But then, I go to shows where the person behind me chomping on gum is a distraction.
