POSTPONED

DUE TO UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES, THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL A LATER DATE

This gig will mark the second meeting of two legendary underground figures each of whom, in his own way, is a shaman of the avant-garde. If Tazartes' earliest recordings, Diasporas (1979) and Total Eclipse of the Sun (1984) brought him into the orbit of musique concrete, he would define its outer most reaches. Composing with recorded material was the means to highly idiosyncratic ends as the mainstays of his material were tracks of his chanting. Over the years, Tazartes has emerged as a vocalist whose chants share an affinity with any and all cultures for whom it is sacred expression. A denizen of Paris since 1987, multi-instumentalist and composer Rhys Chatham needs no introduction. His activities, from playing with La Monte Young's Theater of Eternal Music and Tony Conrad's Dream Syndicate to serving as The Kitchen's first music director would define New York's lower east side post-Minimal experimental music scene.
