Improvisational Free Jazz
Bill Orcutt (born February 2, 1962) is an American guitarist and composer whose work combines elements of blues, punk, and free improvisation.
Orcutt began playing the guitar as a teenager in Miami. In 1992, he formed the band Harry Pussy with his wife, Cuban/American drummer and vocalist Adris Hoyos. The group recorded three LPs and toured the US frequently, often in support of indie bands like Sonic Youth and Sebadoh. Their music, which drew from American no wave, hardcore punk and free jazz was influential and "served as a progenitor for the Noise movement." In 1997 the band dissolved and the couple divorced. Orcutt moved to San Francisco and took a long hiatus from music, returning in 2009, with an LP of solo guitar entitled A New Way To Pay Old Debts which was well received, ranking 3rd of 2009 in the The Wire magazine's annual "Rewind" list. His follow up release How The Thing Sings was similarly praised, reaching number 3 on NPR's The Best Outer Sound Albums Of 2011.
JONAS MEKAS IN PERSON
Jonas Mekas, long considered a champion and creator of experimental cinema visits Miami to present a portion of his diary film opus, Walden on 16mm using his personal print. Join us at this fundraising event for the Knight Arts Challenge winning and Miami Design District supported, Obsolete Media Miami (O.M.M.) #MekasInMiami #omm305
Walden was Mekas' first diary film, and was originally titled Diaries, Notes, and Sketches. This exemplary and intense personal record of daily life in New York City was edited as from a collection of images gathered by Mekas using a Bolex 16mm camera. He typically in what became a signature- exposed several frames at a time to illuminate and record fleeting moments between the mid and late 1960s; “..either you get it now, or you don't get it at all.” said Mekas. Walden was strung together in chronological order and presented with sounds he collected from the same period.
