The Bookmill: 440 Greenfield Rd. Montague, MA
\An Evening with Dr. Eugene Chadbourne At The Montague Bookmill Thursday, April 16, 8 pm Since recording his first record in 1976, Eugene Chadbourne has oscillated determinedly between the worlds of free improvisation, modern composition and the broad tapestry of American popular music that wall-papers his musical imagination. Initially inspired by rock n roll guitarists, Chadbourne quickly outgrew the limitations of the form, and instead chose to refuse the sorts of idiomatic constraints that tend to place an artist into a cul de sac of easy categorization. Collectively, Chadbourne's discography is an orgy of compulsive improvisation, serial collaboration, pranksterish humor, radical critique, psychedelic overkill and loving homage to the same set of musical edifices that he's spent more than thirty years demolishing. These are characteristics equally applicable to his live performances undertaken on guitar, banjo and a number of electrified household and/or stringed implements. Even at his most demented Chadbourne has never been less than relevant, and more often than not these musical detonations provide perfect counterpoint to his relentless critique of a world gone mad.

Area C - play Composition Journal
Mudboy - Play Mudbeats Vol III side A excerpt
Area C is Erik Carlson, a composer, media artist and architect based in Providence, RI. His work examines sound as an evocative presence, often acting as a marker, in the physical and mental spaces we inhabit. Since 2002 he has been recording and performing under the name AREA C, whose compositions work with timbre, texture and live loops, exploring cyclical relationships and the details of their decay over time. Improvisation plays an important part in both recordings and live performances, encompassing extended explorations of minimal rhythm and melody, drawing on remnants of other times and places, outdated and untested technologies, signals sent out but never received
Mudboy is also from Providence RI, and has been described as a "doctor of experimental organomics", a patch-cable conjurer, and a shadowy avant provocateur. Musically he casts a hypnotic spell that should not be missed.
Holland Hopson is a founding member of ASAC. He is also a composer, improviser and electronic artist. As an instrumentalist, he performs on soprano saxaphone, clawhammer banjo, and electronics. He has performed at ASAC numerous times, and each time has wowed audiences with his musical mastery. He was last seen swimming in the "River of Drone", a 12-hour live drone performance at the Upstate Artists Guild in November 2008.
