performance :: order of ephemeroptera

pandatone, twi and the humble feather, and julianna (loring) gathered at an art space in bushwick on saturday night at the order of ephemeroptera. don't ask me. let's just call it o.o.e. the building consists of many art spaces, each holding random home grown exhibits and performances. the only enemy if any of the night was the word "bushwick." say it, and you may conjure up a yucky taste grimace, like ordering a dish from noodle 36 and upon intake realizing it has bittermelon. is bushwick really that far out to see a show? no, it's not the same williamsburg - land of oz, dorothy, but an extra 15 min from some here to some there. i guess it comes down to where the scene is.

the art space had a pleasant atmosphere, very homey; serving can beers out of the fridge with small clusters of friends and fans. nice wooden floors and performance lighting. pandatone started the set, displaying his mad production skills with a laptop performance, indian style on the floor, and sequencing his piece live. the stereo p/a lent well to his stereo panned cuts.[ watch video]

twi and the humble feather came up next with their master opus movements. a full week of everyday practice paid off. antony's getting really psyched with crowd response to his works. it's always great to hear how people interpret the pieces. jim said they create a transcendental experience. sounds good to me! twi wants to tour this fall, i'm trying to figure out how i can squeeze out of work, considering i blew my vacation days already in europe. anthony's been holed up in tulsa for two weeks previously and has recorded almost an ep's worth of new material. twi and humble feather is also in line to record our performance material soon.[ watch video]

julianna put on her most powerful performance yet. i was so thrilled to see her organize her songs into interplayed loops from her casio keyboard and her new hot shit loop pedal, the rc-50. the loop station has become the necessary third arm she really needed to project her sound forward and keep her act solo. and finally a sound system that didn't give her road bumps with her loop outputs! her voice never ceases to amaze anyone in contact. flawless and as professional as any credited vocalist, yet steering for sounds original and sincere.[ watch video]
