This Week in the New Music Department: Looking Back and Moving Forward, and an interview with GX Jupitter-Larsen!
This week on Afternoon New Music we've taken a look back at some notable performers who recently appeared at the Ende Tymes Festival, which took place this past weekend at the Oupost and the Silent Barn in Brooklyn. As we quickly revisit this festival, we also look forward with great enthusiasm to other noise and DIY music shows happening around the city, including the Burning Fleshtival, scheduled to take place near the end of July. Stay tuned in for more about this and other shows in the area. For those who have tuned in so far to the biweekly program "The Philosophical Strain in Postwar American Music", the show will take a one-week hiatus, but will return to the airwaves for your listening pleasure Wednesday, July 6! Then, on Sunday, July 3, catch our Live Constructions show from 10 to 11 PM for an interview and live set from founding Haters member GX Jupitter-Larsen. More than just a producer of sounds, Jupitter-Larsen's method is defined by his conceptual approach: this self-proclaimed horologist (don't be slow to look that up!) has created his own number system (known as the transexpansion numeral unit, or TNU), as well as his own vocabulary for describing some unique characteristics which permeate his music! His conceptual acumen is possibly only matched by his versatility as a musician, filmmaker, and novelist. For lovers of noise and art, this is the interview to catch!
