Not to be outdone by Google’s Borg-like container hive barge/future retail golem in San Francisco Bay, we present our own CM5 Holiday Popup Layaway Concert™ with old friends Eugene Chadbourne and Tatsuya Nakatani.
Eugene Chadbourne has made Orlando appearances since the heydays of Jim Faherty’s 1980’s indie scene-defining Figurehead concerts. We’ve witnessed Dr. Chadbourne’s amplified rake passed around the audience, heard him play Erik Satie with his Insect and Western Party ensemble, heard him sing about a dream where he murdered Orlando music legend Billy Taylor, perform a commission from the fictional Orlando Riverwalk Festival, play an amazing, extended piece of blazing Minimalism on five string banjo and address an audience in-character as Jesse Helm’s wife throughout the evening. Hopefully you’ve decided whether you’re coming or not at this point in the post. Eugene’s U.S. and Canadian exploits are chronicled in his extensive series of short stories and books, too. His slightly fictionalized Eddie Chatterbox Tapes writing about trying to break into the late 1970’s New York Loft Jazz scene is possibly the most cutting and funny account of the mythic micro-genre ever published.
This concert will be percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani’s fourth Orlando visit. Nakatani’s May 2011 visit to the Timucua white house featured two incisive performances, with the first being a lengthy audience-free “sound check” (there was no micing or sound reinforcement) consisting of careful bowing and malleting of gongs, minor physical adjustments, more gonging and visits to the corners of the performance space to take a turn as listener. The exacting detail paid off once Nakatani took the stage for his public performance at Timucua. Robust reflections and ghostly overtones presented a noticeably different event to the inhabitant of each bit of personal space at the Glazer family’s white house.
Advanced will call tickets are available at the Timucua Arts Foundation ticketing site and at the door.
Participate in the Timucua instant arts community created at each event by appearing willing – described by composer Anthony Braxton as the “friendly experiencer.” Timucua encourages a small plate dish and a bottle of wine for community distribution. We’ll see you there.
