No Exit's, Seventh Season of Music   10.30.15

No Exit will be at SPACES on Saturday, November 21, 8:00pm (free)

With Erik Satie's 150 birthday on the horizon, we thought it a keen idea to pay tribute to the original musical dadaist. We will be celebrating the legacy of Satie, throughout our 2015-2016 concert season. An extraordinary season of performances it will be!
For this series of concerts, in addition to Satie, No Exit will be giving voice to music by Krzysztof Penderecki and Kaija Saariaho as well as works from Cleveland area composers Ryan Gallagher and Nicholas Underhill (a world premiere) and, last but not least, a world premiere by Minnesotan composer Justin Henry Rubin. Quite the show folks!

No Exit FREE Concert Nov 15 8:30pm   11.09.13

Greetings Friends,

If you're a fan of jazz, classical, the experimental or the downright avant-garde, then please join us for our November series of concerts - a tribute to the music (and musings) of the Raymond Scott Quintette.

We're only doing two shows in the Cleveland area: Friday, November 15 at SPACES and Monday, November 18 at Cleveland State University. Both concerts are free and open to the public! No Exit will also be making it's PAUSA art house debut on Saturday, November 16. This will truly going to be an amazing (and unusual) evening of music...... not to be missed!

The work of the extraordinary, brilliant, at times outlandish and always entertaining Raymond Scott has seen quite the revival. No Exit, along with some very special guest, are so very pleased to be presenting a program of brand new arrangements of Scott's music - by pianist Geoffrey Burleson, Russ Gershon, Greg DʼAlessio, Chris Auerbach-Brown and Eric Gonzalez - and a couple of original pieces inspired by the man himself - courtesy of No Exitʼs own James Praznik and Timothy Beyer. This will be the Ensemble's first program comprised entirely of world premiere pieces!

Joining members of the standing ensemble will be saxophonist Russ Gershon (of Either/Orchestra fame), percussionist Dinesh Joseph (of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra), drummer Ed Davis and trumpeter Scott McKee - who played with us on our 'Eric Dolphy' program back in 2011.

For more info on Raymond Scott, you can go to [raymondscott.com] and/or find a veritable plethora of musical treats on YouTube.

Word of mouth is always the best form of publicity, so please...... share it with your friends, bring a date, run through the streets screaming it at the top of your lungs, etc..

Thank you for your support!

Best Wishes,

Tim

Machine Project   02.10.11

Tomorrow evening we open two projects: Elizabeth Dunfee and Machine Project. Elizabeth is an Akron-based artist who has expanded her painting practice to include video and sound in a room-sized environment. What is great and exciting about the SPACELab program is to watch local artists step outside of their comfort zones and try something different. SPACES provides a safe place for that experimentation to happen. Check out Elizabeth's interview on Cool Cleveland about her project:

Our other "exhibition" opening tomorrow is Machine Project. They are a unique and quirky confederation of artists based in Los Angeles. They provide art experiences that delve into experimental music, massage, psychic mediumship, food and poetry. What I love about Machine Project is how they consider people's full experiences at museums and galleries and not just the experience of looking at a thing. You'll likely find musicians squirreled away in odd corners of the gallery space performing for one or two people. You'll find fun and energetic displays of demolition at Destruction Karaoke (http://www.spacesgallery.org/events/destruction-karaoke-machine-project-event). The video below will give you an idea of how they try to make every interaction with their audiences an artful one.

Me and the Crew!   01.27.11

Blog Bloggy Bloggity Blog

Plush, bulls and erie machine sounds are gone from the gallery…now to prep for the next exhibition and believe it or not, the next benefit.

February 11 - April 01, 2011

Machine Project <http://www.spacesgallery.org/artists/machine-project> : Camp Cleveland will invade SPACES with a troop of artists from Los Angeles who will brave the Cleveland cold and bring their West Coast styles to the North Coast. Machine Project is known for their thoughtful and off-kilter approaches to art experiences. During the run of the exhibition MP has scheduled over 15 interactive events, lectures and workshops.

And Elizabeth Dunfee <http://www.spacesgallery.org/artists/elizabeth-dunfee> is our next SPACELab artist. Based in Akron, her current work explodes off the wall with microscopic cell imagery, showing what happens when we tamper with natural elements and infuse them with toxic and synthetic elements.

And then there is the benefit. What can I say?…. details to follow.

So right now the crew and I are working on prepping the gallery and couches for MP, shipping fun creatures and working out the logistics of the LA invasion (11 artists--yes, 11).

Want to help and hang out with a lot of cool artists? Contact me, and you too can be part of the crew.

Here is a taste of Machine Projects' Corey Fogel. Corey will be performing at SPACES Feb 15-21, 2011. See you at SPACES!
