Brady Marks Performs (Solo)

"2 VCOs and A Microphone" (~5min)

A tonic break beating of minimal proportions: This performance is an improvisation to create and destroy the boundaries between beats and drone using Beat Frequencies. And, in a parody of Beck's line "Two Turntables and a Microphone" (Where It's At, 1996) I will introduce Failed Vocal Harmony to the Synthesis Chain, as a contrast to the Mathematical Purity & Fetish Value of the Analog VCO which is the Current Analogue of the Turntable's Cultural Cache held the 90's.

About Co.Crea.Tive

The Co.nstrained Crea.tions Collec.Tive gathers artists from different disciplines interested into the exploration of constrained improvisations.

Starting from the concept of free improvisation – a form of music that does not entail predetermined rules nor idiomatic connotations – we challenge our practice through the imposition of piece-wise constraints. As opposed to the definition of a structure, constraints push us out of our artistic comfort zone and hinder the retreat to known patterns.

This approach is then extended to different forms of expression, with a twofold purpose: first, to foster experimentalism, develop personal style, defy our mastery of instruments and bodily expression; second, to help us tell a story to the audience, so as to offer also to non-artists a breach over the complex domain of creative improv.
