EMIT-a-Thon with Mark Hosler, Anoikis & Kersey/Stewart
Please note, this event has expired.
EMIT and the Palladium Theater are joining forces for the EMIT-a-thon, a scholarship benefit program of adventurous music for students in St. Petersburg College’s MIRA (Music Industry/Recording Arts) program.
e.EMIT returns to its experimental roots for this special concert event!
Mark Hosler is a founding member of the California collage experimental group Negativland that introduced the concept of “culture jamming” to an unsuspecting public. Since 1980 Negativland has been creating records, video, visual artworks, radio, and live performance, using appropriated sound, image, and text. The group famously flouted music-biz norms and copyright law during its early days which resulted in lawsuits for its U2 EP.Hosler takes a break from his Negativland duties to perform live and solo using a performance set-up built around various homemade one-of-a-kind electronic noise-making devices. Sometimes sounding like alien electronic insects fighting each other, the instruments create a non-linear dynamic “living” system of sound.
Anoikis is a trio dedicated to choreographic dance and electroacoustic research based in North Wales, U.K. Composer Andrew Leslie Hooker and choreographer/dancers Melissa Pasut and Rachel Sweeney are committed to performing radical new works that seek to explore the sense of rhizomatic shadow-space that exists between the accepted boundaries of traditional artistic practice and consumption.
Tom Kersey and Jim Stewart team up as an improvising duo. Kersey is a composer/cellist and leader of the experimental group Kelp. Stewart was drummer in the experimental quintet SHIM and world music group poOg. Together, they stretch the sonic spectrum.
