GARAGE PERFORMANCE +FILM

8 PM
BIG SKY WORKS BROOKLYN
29 Wythe Ave @ 14th St
$10 suggested donation
http://bigskyworksbrooklyn.com/

FEATURING: Ondyne’s Demise, Nick Meyer & Kieran Lally,
Colin Langenus & Eli Winograd, Maja Rajenovich, Ann Tracy,
Youngsun Cho & Mayu Iwasaki, Nora Burn, & Max Sympathy.

ONDYNE’S DEMISE is an ethereal ambient music project. Operatic vocals blend with dark strains of cello and sweeping cinematic synth, heralding listeners into a dark mysterious world of water spirits and unsettled phantoms.

NICK MEYER is a photographer from Western Massachusetts. KIERAN LALLY is half of the rock duo Horse Spirit Penetrates, and often a subject in Meyer’s work. In their slide show, PATTERN LANGUAGE, the two combine still images and music to create an abstract narrative. http://www.nickmeyerphoto.com/

COLIN LANGENUS & ELI WINOGRAD run a studio in Brooklyn, pooling their equipment and collaborating heavily. They play art shows, mellow minimal country, psychedelic yacht rock comfortable soul jam…or whatever they want. http://colinlangenus.com/

MAJA RAJENOVICH presents PORTRAIT OF A CATCH-ALL, a tribute to the bravery and idealism of an American Dreamer, inspired by Ray Kachel (OWS) and George Packer (writer/reporter). http://majarajenovich.com/

ANN TRACY’S short video, COSMIC BOXING packs a punch as well as advises on the Sutras for living in this newly arrived Aquarian Age. Ann (Gianroop Kaur) teaches Kunadlini Yoga and Meditation at Golden Bridge Yoga, NYC. She is a life-long studio artist. http://www.anntracy.info/

TRANSPLANTS is a collection of interwoven movements highlighting the kaleidoscopic rhythm of a New Yorkers’ daily life. It is performed by two recent NYC arrivals, YOUNGSUN CHO & MAYU IWASAKI, who marvel at how people adapt to extreme, self-imposed conditions of the City, what people do in order to survive, and affirm their commitment to stay on.

NORA BURN is a founding member of the comedy groups Unitard and the Nellie Olesons. She’s cheating on her gays and performing solo, so don’t tell, though she’s sure they’re performing solo in steam rooms around the city.

A EULOGY FOR SPECIAL PEOPLE (film) by MAX SYMPATHY. Intended to portray nudity without sex and blood without violence. 15 minutes of fame for wage slaves & nobodies from nowhere, forever an evanescent moment. 90’s Portland, Oregon as last gasp analog sci-fi, deep in sensation and heavily saturated, cinema, desperate music in love with truth and beauty. http://www.ahistoricalproductions.com/

THE INDECENT, BIG NILS + TOY SUGAR

  • w/ DJ Keili (WFMU) + Bamiam.tv

THE INDECENT, BIG NILS and TOY SUGAR rocks BIG SKY WORKS with special guest DJ KEILI  and BAMIAM.TV

Jan 14th, 2012 BIG SKY WORKS presents an evening of all original music with three of the hottest teen rock bands in the country along with special guest DJ KEILI from Beastin’ the Airwaves on WFMU Radio and mind bending visuals from BAMIAM.TV

THE INDECENT make music that is aggressive, subtle, poetic, profane, and quite often all these things at once. Influenced by Patti Smith, the Gits, the Velvet Underground, Barrett’s Floyd, and many Seattle-type things, the Indecent are Emily Brout (vocals), Madeline Brout (bass), Bo Brout (guitar), all from New York City, and Windsor, Ontario’s Nicholas Burrows on drums. The group self-released their first album, Her Screwed Up Head, in the fall of 2010, and will release their major label debut on Warner Bros Records this coming spring, produced by Rob Cavallo.

BIG NILS is a Western Mass. Freewheelin’ punk band that enjoys getting band burgers (and each other). They are named after a very tall ex punk rocker named Nils who has a rock n’ roll tattoo and has been arrested for stealing and setting buildings on fire. They are currently working on putting out “Siblings” on cassette tape and hopefully, in the future on vinyl. Some fun band activities include making underwear, taking band trips to play shows in Sen’s Cadillac and making noise in Coco’s basement.

TOY SUGAR is NYC’s all girl teen band-a little sweet, a little rebellious and a whole lotta’ talented! They are fans of sweeping guitars, crooning vocals, and pounding drums. Their unique sound plays with old school rock n’ roll, touches of punk and indie rock. They have played many wonderful venues in NYC and especially love Big Sky Works, which is a second home to these rockers!

DJ KEILI- WFMU darling and host of Beastin’ The Airwaves! with Keili since 2008, DJ Keili has been spinning on the air and in the club since the age of 15. She’s got her finger on the pulse of the All Ages Indie Music movement, bringing it to events at the finest venues and smallest dives in New York City and the world.

B.A MIALE aka BAMiAM.TV is a not only an award winning music video director, but a rare breed of video artist who mashes up her playfully psychedelic visuals in real time on a keytar.

Garage Performance and Film this Sunday

Sunday. January 8th. doors @ 8 pm
GARAGE PERFORMANCE & FILM
BIG SKY WORKS BROOKLYN
29 Wythe Ave. @ 14th St. $10 donation
http://bigskyworksbrooklyn.com/

Featuring: Jennifer Monson & Jennifer Miller, Karen Bellone & Lisa Rinzler, Johanna S. Meyers & Alexandra Hartmann, Stephanie Artz & Mark Howell, Sara Brown & NYC, Maja Rajenovich & Julia Sterling, and Lone Wolf & Cub.

Jennifer Miller & Jennifer Monson have a sporadic, on-going dance collaboration. In this performance they will continue their investigation of improvised unison with reference to Merce Cunningham, Anna Halprin & Chris Cochrane. Miller is founder & director of Circus Amok, and professor at Pratt Institute. Monson is founder & artistic director of iLAND (interdisciplinary Laboratory of Art Nature and Dance), and professor at University of Illinois.

Death By Unnatural Causes (1992), short film by Karen Bellone & Lisa Rinzler. This work is a visceral homage to those living and passing under the shadow of AIDS in a world run amok.

Alexandra Hartmann & Johanna S. Meyers will perform stunts never seen by anyone. Perform things never ever done…in a reunion performance of long time collaborators. Dance With My Wall, Please! is a series of love duets and solos with Tanya Gagne’s wall.

Dancer Stephanie Artz & guitarist Mark Howell collaborate on interstellar planes, notes, movements, gestures, waves of sound/space exploring alternative realities through parallel universes of dance and music. She is live; he is molecular.

Sara Brown & New York is a West Coast Riot Grrl living and loving in NYC, a freelance photographer who walked straight off the bus into the circus via Tanya’s Trapeze Loft. Tonight, she’ll share with us some of her great partner shots. www.sarabrown.net

Maja Rajenovich (Brooklyn) & Julia Sterling (San Francisco) will attempt the transcontinental communication between two. This brief exposition: Air Of Breathing Under A Blanket gets warm in a confined virtual reality of contrived privacy. Another reunion performance made possible by the Jetsons.

Lone Wolf & Cub is Ryan Sawyer on drums & Suzanne Rogaleski on trapeze. They light up the night sky through their passionate conversation, responding to one another in time and space, in wondrous, daring optimism.

THE GIRAFFES (w/aerial insanity by cody schreger) +TWIN GUNS+THE SKINS+ BAMiAM.tv

THE GIRAFFES are nothing short of legends in the brooklyn rock scene. This time around while they pummel you with their rambunctious sexy surf metal, you’ll witness aerialist insanity dangling from the ceiling, courtesy of the amazing CODY SCHREGER

New York’s TWIN GUNS is a reverb-soaked dynamically dark duo that features Andrea Sicco (Oscura, Rockethouse) and “Jungle” Jim Chandler (The Cramps, The Makers). “A Phil Spector-meets-Nick Cave-style of rock n’ roll. ” says the Onion A.V Club

THE SKINS are an insane teenage rock band consisting of siblings Bayli, Reef, and Kaya Mckeithan, along with friends Daisy Spencer and Russell Chell.

Larger than life light show all night bought to you by B.A Miale who mashes up video live on a keytar. It’s probably also worth mentioning Damien from the GIRAFFES (that sicko) will be curating the imagery/clips she uses during parts of their set. she’s scared.
