ARCHITEUTHS WALKS ON LAND: THE SURVEYORS
Saturday, October 18th, 2014
8:00 pm
CPMC Experimental Theater
Free. General Admission.

ABOUT ARCHITEUTHIS
Sawing, sputtering, gurgling and wailing, Architeuthis Walks on Land is every bit the displaced and terrifying cephalopod that the name suggests. The viola and bassoon are two instruments rarely associated with free improvisation and noise; yet Amy Cimini and Katherine Young rip it up with
particular aplomb, constructing chaotic sound masses, raise towering monoliths, and spinning out spacious gestures. Crafting their improvised materials into sophisticated structures, they capture the compositional, timbral and expressive breadth of this uncommon coupling: from divergently soloistic to profoundly intertwined playing, from a slowly unfolding intimacy to raw friction. Cimini and Young lunge and flutter through their materials with the intuition and energy of constant discovery. Violist Amy Cimini and bassoonist Katherine Young have been performing together as Architeuthis Walks on Land since 2003. The duo developed its approach to improvisation in Chicago and New York City's rich experimental music communities, and have collaborated with artists like Anthony Braxton and the Tri-Centric Orchestra, Peter Evans, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Jessica Pavone, and Hans
Joachim Irmler from Faust.

PLEASE NOTE: As an experimental and new music department, much of our music is very intimate and quiet, for this reason, we request that students preparing concert reports refrain from writing or rustling papers during concerts.  We also respect the artistry of our musicians and adhere to a strict policy of NO LATE SEATING.  Guests arriving late may be turned away or will be asked to enter between pieces.
