Found Sound Nation: The Westerlies, Zula, and Brandon Seabrook



The Found Sound Nation concert series at Pioneer Works kicks off with experimental brass quartet The Westerlies, pyschedelic pop act Zula, and banjo experimentalist Brandon Seabrook. Found Sound Nation is a collective of musicians and artists curating events, workshops, and performances around New York City. Their projects include The Young Composers Workshop, Street Studio, and OneBeat. Operating under the overarching FSN ethos that encourages the diminishing of boundaries in music-making and music-listening – be they ethnic, cultural, or stylistic – this concert series features a diverse curation of artists, both local and international. Recorded live at Pioneer Works, January 25, 2015.

RADIO SERIES

The object of this series is to invite emerging and established innovators to share their work. These programs are usually a combination of an interview with a far-reaching perspective on the artist's career, some recordings illustrating this history, and something new. Open territory. The unfortunate and unintended messages that come attached to a title like Experimental Composers are many. Still it is one of the few labels to come out of the world of music that has not been co-opted by promoters, corporations, journalists, or lawyers. This one just seems to have anti-market goo on it. Hooray. It's also just bad English (as if to imply that these poor souls are themselves, in their flesh and blood, some kind of experiment and, perhaps, even expendable). And then there is the spectre of defying the wisdom of the great Edgar Varèse who said something like, "I do not write experimental music. My experimenting is done before I make the music. Afterwards it is the listener who must experiment."
