NOAH BECKER and COLIN HINTON met in the summer of 2017 at Vijay Iyer's International Workshop in Jazz and Creative Music in Banff, Canada, and immediately felt a strong personal, musical, and aesthetic connection. They have continued to perform together back home in New York as active members of the city's creative music scene. Having already played and recorded together in many larger ensemble contexts, they are excited to premiere this duo for the first time at DMG! ///////////
DAVID GROLLMAN plays mainly snare drum with assorted objects, has unpredictable outbursts of vocals and is a longtime friend and constant supporter of the DMG Sunday Music Series. Of all of our InstraGram attractions, Mr. Grollman seems to be amongst the most popular. He has invited another snare drummer, CORY O’BRIEN, ti turn this into a duo. The name SPEEDO refers to the type of preferred garment that the duo might just be wearing, if they will actually be wearing anything at all!
Free salon at DMG to introduce Elliott Sharp's upcoming book IrRational Music - Tuesday, May 1, 2018 at 6:30pm
Elliott Sharp has written a book! IrRational Music, a combination of memoir, music theory, and cultural criticism will be published on Nov. 1 by Terra Nova Books in collaboration with Found Sound Editions.
IrRational Music is a mix of tales from the road and sky with thoughts on music, art, and the process of thinking itself collected in a beautifully printed and illustrated book with accompanying graphic scores
To introduce the book and a Kickstarter campaign to fund its publication, E# will do a short solo performance on acoustic guitar and read an excerpt. David Rothenberg of Terra Nova and Kyla Rose-Smith of Found Sound Nation will also be on hand to speak about the project. Refreshments will be served.
“Elliott Sharp’s writing, like his music, recombines the scrupulously discursive with the deeply humane and reflective. What a joy it is to be informed by this remarkable account of the coming-of-age of his psyche, his curiosity, and his methodology. Sharp paints a picture of lost kingdoms of the avant-garde which aren’t really lost, but continuous in our present if we’re inclined to notice them. With this book, a reader joins Sharp in the step-by-step reinvigoration of intentional sound itself – sound as culture, as science, as art -- a process that can never be finished.” – Jonathan Lethem (Author of Motherless Children, Fortress Of Solitude)

SUN RA TRIO With HAYES BURNETT / SAMARAI CELESTIAL
The album was recorded in one day at New York’s Variety Studios in 1979; aside from a second piano overdubbing on ‘Days Of Happiness’, no changes were made to the original music. Released in small press runs on Sun Ra’s private label El Saturn Records, its five tracks never reappeared elsewh...
"Funkadelic's second LP, originally released in 1970, is another straight up masterpiece from the stoniest, strangest funk and R&B group of all-time. Opening with the 10 minute title track complete with a shredding keyboard solo from Bernie Worrell and, of course, the six-stringed insanity of Eddie ...
Honest Jon's Records present a reissue of Derek Bailey's Lot 74, originally released by Incus in 1974. Recorded at a private house in West London, the side-long title track is a masterwork: a twenty-two-minute, starkly personal, freely expressive, itchily searching re-casting of orders of rhythm an...
