TONY CONRAD: COMPLETELY IN THE PRESENT
a documentary film by Tyler Hubby
Tony Conrad: Completely in the Present is a non-fiction film examining the pioneering life and works of artist, musician, and educator, Tony Conrad.
Tony Conrad was one the great American artists of our time, yet to the world at large he remains criminally under appreciated. Since the early 1960s, Conrad’s films and compositions have been the stuff of legend for artists and musicians everywhere. His vast, inter-disciplinary repertoire has single-handedly created and influenced major film and compositional movements. He performed in and recorded the soundtrack to Jack Smith’s legendary Flaming Creatures; he turned the paradigms of cinema upside down with The Flicker, a film composed of only black and white frames; his development and practice of Just Intonation and Minimalism through his work with Stockhausen and La Monte Young still has the music establishment scratching their heads; his pivotal role in the formation of The Velvet Underground has directly or indirectly influenced everyone who has picked up a guitar since; as an early adopter of activist public access television he democratized the emerging medium of portable video. In his later years he continued to perform and make work that pushed the boundaries of reason for which he has finally begun to receive worldwide attention.
Utilizing intimate footage of Tony and his collaborators shot over the last twenty-two years, as well as his own archive of recordings and films, Tony Conrad: Completely in the Present mirrors Conrad’s own playfully radical approach to art making. The non-linear structure allows Conrad to wildly free associate his streams of consciousness, revealing an honest and humane way of navigating a remarkable, creative life.

Coming up on April 7th we are back at our regular bimonthly concert series with old friends and new favorites.
Hailing from NYC for their first time on the series we have Bryan and the Aardvarks. Bryan Copeland formed the group in order to explore an inventive new sound that derived from his jazz training as well as his upbringing in pop and country music. The music he writes for the quartet combines a hushed intimacy with memorable, singable melodies and a narrative directness that nevertheless leaves space for expressive improvisation. In pianist Fabian Almazan, vibraphonist Chris Dingman, and drummer Joe Nero, he has assembled a distinctive ensemble able to flesh out his unique compositions. They are touring to support the release of their latest album Sounds From the Deep Field which will be released on Grammy Award winning artist Fabian Almazan’s new label Biophilia Records. The album is a mostly through-composed, 10 movement suite. Each movement is an interpretation of natural phenomena which exist in our universe. Also on the night is saxophonist Dave Murphy and his quartet made up of fellow local heavies Phil Mazza on guitar, Steve Johnson on bass, and Ben Dicke on drums. We’ve had the pleasure of hosting these musicians many times and each show brings out more vibrant compositions and improvisations than the last. They have some exciting new sounds for you all, so this a must see.
As always the door is $10 which goes to help support these incredible musicians, music kicks at 9:30pm.”
Learn how to sing the traditional American folk music known as “Shape-Note” or “Sacred Harp.” This unaccompanied, four-part harmony singing style started in New England in the 18th century, was developed in the American South in the 19th and 20th centuries, and is now practiced across the country and internationally. No musical experience is required to learn how to sing Sacred Harp. Ian Quinn, Professor of Music at Yale, will lead the singing school. The session will be interactive and participatory. In Sacred Harp singing, there are no performances and no rehearsals. Each event is its own unique gathering of participants.Come learn about this inclusive, loud, DIY singing style. You *can* sing!
