Jesse Kudler + Alex Tyson live performance with 16mm educational films
July 17, 2012
Philadelphia, PA, USA
Presented as part of Tuesday Tune-Out, a film and live music series curated by Herb Shellenberger & Black Circle Cinema
Jesse Kudler creates concrete music on the computer, composes low-tech multi-channel sound works, and improvises on cheap consumer devices: a no-name electric guitar, hand-held cassette recorders, radios and transmitters, various small junk, and pedals/electronics. Kudler attended public school until Wesleyan University, where he studied music with Ron Kuivila, Alvin Lucier, and a little bit with Anthony Braxton, among others. He eventually became active as an organizer and performer in improvised, experimental, and electronic music. Kudler is the co-founder and co-Director (with Ian Fraser) of the Philadelphia Sound Forum. His fans often refer to him as “the Kud.”
Alex Tyson is a visual artist and musician working in Philadelphia. Beyond his practice of experimental and documentary film production, Alex is a co-founder of Data Garden, an electronic music label, arts journal and events producer. Alex will be operating analog synthesizers and electronics.
16mm educational films from the collection of Herb Shellenberger.
