NYC Show: “Sonata In Primeval Sounds” by Kurt Schwitters @ Vox Pop, Sat Nov 28

Ursonate Urchestra

Saturday, November 18, 10pm

Vox Pop, 1022 Cortelyou Road, Brooklyn, NY

Dada artist Kurt Schwitters’s classic “Sonata In Primeval Sounds,” also called “Ursonate,” is performed by Urchestra: vocalists Andy Laties and Rebecca Migdal, percussionist Eric Blitz, Andy Crespo (bass), GLOVE, John Landino (trombone, trumpet, cello), Ken Bradburd, Denis Luzuriaga, Amanda Petrovato and Bob Wilson (synths), with invented-instrument-makers Mitch Ahern (electroluxeopipeophone, crutch) and Pronoblem (bass, board, cane, clarinet).  Click here for “Ursonate” audio preview.

Published in 1932, Kurt Schwitters’s “Sonata In Primeval Sounds” is the granddaddy of sound-art poems: an hourlong opus that develops 26 abstract themes in classical sonata format. Andy Laties’s rousing participatory interpretations were honored in Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art’s major “Art In Chicago 1945-1995″ retrospective.
