The Most Horrible Night In Your Life #11

Ah yes, the joys of another "Most Horrible Night In Your Life"! Mr. Krakowiak's ironically (or not) titled experimental music series continues with Vol. 11 set to take place this coming Monday. And I'm in it again! Not surprising considering my reputation, I suppose. Here are the horrible details:

Monday March 15, 8:30pm

-the most horrible night in your life vol.11-

Paul Dutton/William Davison - mouth / objects
Elliot Chapin/Nick Fraser - computer programming / drums
Pau Torres / Joda Clement - Doepfer A100 / Korg MS20 (music to "The
Act of Seeing with One's Own Eyes" by Stan Brakhage)

Smiling Buddha, 961 College St., Toronto (where else?!)

Not sure about admission, it's probably PWYC. Looking forward to providing you with a truly awful evening out!

S.O.T.N.E. clip

Songs of the New Erotics "DU(BU)ET" performed live at "Performance Night 4.5", Toronto, Mar. 6, 2010.

DU(BU)ET is a "duet" with one of the performers absent. The live performer is W.A.Davison (aka Songs of the New Erotics) using hand-manipulated vinyl. The absent performer is DAS of Big City Orchestra who is represented in the performance by a cassette player and backing tape. The backing tape was composed by W.A.Davison using raw audio material submitted to the S.O.T.N.E. project by DAS sometime in the mid to late 90's (thanks DAS! I'm finally using that stuff you sent me!). Video by S.Higgins. Thanks to Dahye and Yuki for use of their space and for organizing this event.

Will the real Recordists please brandish their lobsters

No, this is not Recordism...

So, uh, this person couldn't do a Google search to see if someone might already be using the term? No alarm bells went off when was already registered?
