Date: Sunday, September 13th, 1998
City: Buenos Aires, Argentina
Venue: Cemento -- Experimenta '98
- Lee performed with William Hooker (with films by Leah Singer). They also participated in a master class afterwards.
- Here is information from the show's official website:
"Lee Ranaldo, original member and guitar player of the Sonic Youth, and one
of the main renewers of rock music in the 80s, presented his show on
Experimenta 98, together with the poet and jazz drummer William Hooker and
the filmmaker Leah Singervez. The experimental trio offered a 50 minutes
concert that developed in three integrated levels: acoustic, visual and oral
"On the acoustic level dominated the distorted sounds of Ranaldo's guitar
and the intentionally disjointed percusion of Hooker's drums. On the visual
level, Singervez's film, produced under the form of rattle montage, followed
the whole performance, generating an accelerated perceptual tempo. Finally,
on the spoken word level, some fragments of Hooker's poem readings closed
the unity of the show."
