LOADED: Work/Death, Lisa Bella Donna + MX SILKMAN

September 15, 2017 / 8:00pm

Free + open to all

LOADED is a music series incorporating experimental elements of performance art, avant rock, punk, and electronic music. Guest curated by R.A. Washington (Mourning A BLKstar, Guide to Kulchur Press), Haley Morris (Kiernan Paradise) and Lisa Miralia (Mysterious Black Box on WCSB Radio), this series brings together sound artists from our region and beyond to perform on MOCA's loading dock. This is music that deluges the senses. You don't wade in, you dive.

Scøtt reber is a self taught composer from Providence, RI who has been performing under the name WORK/DEATH since 2004. Ostensibly beginning from industrial noise and experimental electronics, his practice has expanded to trace paths through varied histories of 20th century avant garde music and art in an attempt to communicate something particularly personal. Densely layered and emotionally charged, his music orchestrates textured noise into larger structures as well as dissolve formalized music to its constituent vibrations. Filling rooms, sometimes with sound loud enough to be physical, he also uses
arrays of multiple tiny speakers to diffuse quiet sounds and field recordings of specific spaces in new environments, which become activated and directly color the transmission/translation of the recorded memories.

The LOADED Concert Series is sponsored by Medical Mutual of Ohio
