    Loren Connors & Keiji Haino in Japan

    August 22, 2014

    On November 11th Loren Connors and Keiji Haino will perform a live, improvised soundtrack to The Passion of Joan of Arc -- Carl Theodor Dreyer's 1928 masterpiece. The event is at Shibuya in Tokyo, Japan. But Loren won't be traveling to Japan. Instead he will perform in New York City via a slightly delayed Internet hook-up with Keiji in Tokyo. 

    According to the Google translation of the Japanese concert announcement: "This time, do not dare to be invited Connors be dangerous to the long-distance movement suffers from Parkinson's disease, experimental performance center of local Brooklyn Issue Project Room in, you get to play in the movie is screened. Then send out sound and video using the Internet, avant-garde blues guitarist true of another person, Keiji Haino will Mukaeuchi the sound of Connors and movie in Tokyo.

    "It will be a slight delay will occur in the synchronization of the Brooklyn / Tokyo between, but including the delay time difference and two people would be "playing". In order to accurately as possible and synchronization!? Whether there for anything such as the Internet if you did not used to this, you will digital screening rather than a film, but at 20 frames / sec worth is said to screening rate of silent film era in screenings, I pull the video representation of the original.

    If you have not seen Loren Connors' adaption of "City Lights," it's about time to change that. "The sole purpose of this use of the images is to illustrate the timelessness of the more serious scenes of the film in the context of modern music and to indicate how the film would "feel" with the "slapstick" elements (roughly three-fourths of the film eliminated, which transforms the material and uses it for a different purpose than the original intent and comedic value)." - LC

    Darling, O-Type is back

    May 26, 2014

    So, it's been almost 15 years since the first Family Vineyard release Strict -- an album from MX-80 members Bruce Anderson (guitar), Dale Sophiea (sampler) and their usual cohorts Dave Mahoney (drums), Jim Hrabetin (guitar) and Marc Weinstein (drums). The CD was released under their names, but the project later (re)morphed into O-Type, a badge they'd been using since the mid-1980s. So it's a gas, and a helluva surprise, to find out Milvia Sun have just reissued O-Type's 1988 cassette Darling as a 300-edition LP in screened covers. Now Darling is no musique concrète revision of Mr. Anderson's guitar styling as Strict was/is. Instead, Darling is post-MX-vision rock with Anderson taking the mic at times to sound like a "gruff, drunken, almost sick sounding barrage, coming a little too close to the far-beyond-gone state of Bobby Soxx at the dead end of Stick Men With Ray Guns" (or so sez our pal Doug). Nonethless, we think you oughta buy both.
