Hello, friends and enemies!!!
We have been frantically getting the pieces in order in anticipation of the launch of our KICKSTARTER fundraising thing! Yay!
We will have more detailed information for y’all as the days go on, but we will be raising funds for the construction of custom-built quartertone instruments (a vibraphone and a guitar) to perform Brian Ferneyhough’s Renvoi/Shards and other newly commissioned works for these instruments.
Our Kickstarter will launch fo’ realz in 10 days. We will be posting stills from the video every day until then on facebook and twitter while we edit the final cut, rehearse our incentives (“Sport’n A Woody” by Dangerous Toys and a full hour of 311 songs aren’t going to learn themselves) and get everything else in tip-top shape for the official launch.
And a happy end of summer to you. Things have been extremely busy here at The Living Birth Show HQ. We have announcements up the wazoo.
tryna go viral up in here.
First of all, thanks a billion to everyone who came to our recent shows. We had an awesome time playing ‘em. Here are brief recapz: Continue reading
Sam Adams: Tension Study #1
check ch-check check check ch-check it out!
if you enjoy it, please give sam “slam” adams some love over at www.samuelcarladams.com
So we’ve got a show this Friday! The fine, feathered folks at The Schoolhouse (1592 Market Street @ Franklin) have given us three hours to fill with music-sounds and visual art. We, in turn, thought it’d be cool to just call up buddies whose music we enjoy and put everyone in a room and alternate pieces, round robin-style, for a few hours. Then we were all like, what if a bunch of artists came and made art at the same time?? So we got a bunch of artists together too. If all goes according to plan, there will also be dance and painting and poetry and collage and food art composed simultaneously. The lineup of stuff should be really diverse and make for a pretty incredible night of music and art-making.
We’ll be playing Tension Studies 1 and 2 by Slam Adams and Adagio Tranquilo by Alexis Alrich. There will also be music composed by Javier Alvarez, Heitor Villa-Lobos, Sergei Prokofiev, Mario Davidovsky, Tielman Susato, Frank Martin, and others.
Here’s some of the other people performing! I don’t know how to make everything the same font because I don’t know how the internet works! Is this too long for a concert info post?? I’m self conscious about all this. Continue reading
We’re the Living Earth Show. We are from San Francisco and we play music that is sometimes loud but also sometimes soft. Thanks for coming to our website. We will use this internet-house as a place to post show dates, video clips, audio clips, hilarious memes, bios, blog, etc.
Hope to see you at a show or something!
