Event Program (PDF)

James Gordon Williams performs a solo piano program of Improvisations from the Ontological Hinterlands (acoustic piano) and Your Ass Is In What You Sing (feedback piano). Gordon writes: "Feedback is insurgency through sound. It is the disruption/irruption of time and space. It is the sound altercation between creative practice and the musically, politically and spiritually hegemonic. I stand for anti-formalism because my ontology has given me no choice. When hegemonic structures are subverted space for imagination and creativity is maximized. Feedback is the feedback that comes from what objects live through/ have lived through… and so feedback is the sound histories and sound epistemologies that stretch out from the genealogy of those that strive from a location of an unacknowledged and caricatured subjectivity, to create new forms.
