Rafael Toral, Space Studies

Melodic without notes, rhythmic without a beat, familiar but strange, meticulous but radically free. From a March 2011 performance at Experimental Internedia Foundation, the Lisbon-based composer/performer Rafael Toral plays his Space Studies, exercises in "post-free jazz electronic music" - riddled with paradox, yet full of clarity and space. The concert celebrates his 1994 appearance at the same downtown music loft.

These programs are prepared for radio and posted online by in partnership with Experimental Intermedia Foundation who have been making high-quality concert recordings for 40 years.


Experimental Intermedia Concerts


A radio series of programs recorded at Experimental Intermedia Foundation (EI), the legendary, influential downtown New York loft venue, incubator, showcase, and community center for composers and experimenters in the arts, known for being first and best at presenting (and recording!) new music and new media since the 70s. The concert series is programmed and produced by composer Phill Niblock who has been directing presentations at Experimental Intermedia since 1973 (well over 1,000 performances) and he is the curator of EI's XI Records label. In 1993, he opened a satellite space with window gallery in Ghent, Belgium. For more on the concert series, recordings, archives, and other intermedia adventures of Phill Niblock around the globe visit the Experimental Intermedia Foundation site. This radio project is a partnership between Experimental Intermedia Foundation and The Clocktower Gallery and its radio station at The series is produced and managed with the generous efforts of Byron Westbrook.
