3/13/12: Soft Delete/Purgative Dryness at Cafe Fixe

I'll be performing "Soft Delete/Purgative Dryness" for amplified trumpet and pre-recorded electronics tomorrow night at 8pm as part of Non-Event's Experimental Coffee House series at  CafĂ© Fixe , 1642 Beacon Street  (Washington Square), Brookline, MA 02445, 617-879-2500. $5.

This is just a few doors down from The Publick House, so your possibilities are manifold.

"Soft Delete/Purgative Dryness" is a two-part piece exploring themes of philosophical and aesthetic absence, including the potential absence of meaning and content. The solo work will feature amplified but otherwise acoustic trumpet and some pre-recorded electronic elements. It was premiered in Chicago in December 2011. Special thanks to Lampo for instigating the piece and presenting the premiere.
This program is supported in part by a grant from the Brookline Commission for the Arts, a local agency supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
