Projections Mechanical // Jeff Kowalski's Scratch Orchestra

Doors at 7, music at 7:30.

Free, donations welcome!

Projections Mechanical is a loose affiliation of sound artists participating in Katie Young's NOISE course in SAIC's Sound Department. The class critically and creatively examines noisy expressions in the contexts of experimental music and sound art - noise in/as/vs./through music - highlighting political connections and extensions. Tonight we will perform original works and new collaborations.

Jeff Kowalkowski's MUS-203 Contemporary Improvisation: Scratch Orchestra class is an attempt at collective ensemble music in the spirit of Cardew's Scratch Orchestra of London, or Chicago's AACM, and many other musical collectives and influences.  We perform and record free improvisation, graphic scores, and other forms devised by the students.
