Quiet Cue #113
Thursday, May 23rd, 8.15PM
Pierce Warnecke (US/FR/DE) – live electronics, speaker array, installation
Nothing is connected, everything is isolated.
Beginning with all objects exposed in their most reduced state, the piece develops as cable and
device connections are made by the performer. ‘Variations” uses electrical hums and various types
of feedback (room, mixer, computer) to build improvised layers of drone and noise, broken by
field recordings and realtime object manipulations processed via custom software.
Valerie Kuehne (Brooklyn, NY) – cello, voice, objects
Valerie Kuehne is a cross-pollinated work of chaos. Fusing together music, performance art,
narrative, and experimental curation, she has been told that, "if this music thing doesn’t work out,
she’d probably make an awesome cult leader." (Boston Public Space).
After moving to New York to study Philosophy at The New School, Ms. Kuehne has systematically
bifurcated her time between touring the planet, performing in as many unexpected settings as
possible, and building a community for experimental music and performance art in New York.
Her series, The Super Coda, is an experimental cabaret that has united electrifying performers
5 years running.
Ms. Kuehne’s work operates under principles of surprise, and investigates obsession, comedy,
decay, forensic pathology, sex, hypnogogia, viscera, death.
Lars Åkerlund (SWE) – electroacoustic music
Born in 1953, Lars Åkerlund studied composition at New Music and developed electronic music
at Stockholm's EMS (Electronic Music Studio). In the late 80s he formed the proto-Techno trio
Lucky People Centre and has spent much of the past two decades writing music for high profile
choreographic and film projects in Sweden.
"The electronic sounds of Lars Åkerlund crunches irascibly, sparkles and vibrates like under a
high voltage wire. Suggestive, changing and impossible to withdraw from."
