Our thoughts go out to Puerto Rico during this difficult time.

G Lucas Crane at Outpost



The ferociously whimsical and brutally romantic gentle giant G Lucas Crane performs a live set incorporating the entire universe of sound in a ball of fire and bubbles. The Lucas-coaster is a ride we all must take whenever possible. Equipped with his lo-tech obsolete gadgets and mysterious processors, Lucas chews tape, punches buttons, and launches a delicious cacophony that will invade your heart. Impossible?

Recorded at Outpost Artists Resources, the gallery and production center in Ridgewood, Queens on July 9, 2015 and presented as part of their Fire Over Heaven Music Series curated by Greg Fox.

Experimental Composers

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."
