Capital Community College, 950 Main Street
Political, social comment, pointed humor and irony. Art, video, music, spoken word and theatrics will be employed to comment on the world we live in.
"Ideomotor" = Involuntary physical reaction to cerebral stimulation. For example, one can't help but laugh when someone says something very funny. Applied to these music performances, when one band member makes an interesting sound, often with a DIY homemade "instrument", another band member or members will be stimulated to react "involuntarily", to spontaneously make an answering sound. In true Dada fashion, w/o pre-thought, w/o a pre-determined musical agenda, a sound/noise composition is born - of Spontanaeity and Chance.
