Click Music: "Exploratory Devices"

  • Click Workspace

You're invited to the first concert in Click's new music series, designed to provide musicians with a venue to experiment with their artforms. "Exploratory Devices" is a double-bill featuring George Langford (Javelin) and 3rdness by Noam Schatz.

Armed with several Critter & Guitari Kaleidoloops, George Langford of the band Javelin creates textural sonic collages and invites you join in this rare, hands-on and improvisatory affair. Audience participation is encouraged.

3rdness is the nom de noise of Noam Schatz, a veteran of the Valley music scene, usually found behind the drums of rock and rolling bands such as The Capitulators and Endless Mike.

Circuit bending is the art of destruction, purposefully breaking toy keyboards and drum machines until they unveil compelling new sounds. The juggling and tossing of stray electrons. The weaving and warping of synthetic tones and noises.

There is an inherent unpredictability in the circuit bent instruments, making them a perfect medium for the improviser. Once the music begins, not even the electrons know how it will turn out.

In former lives, Noam has played with local luminaries Mobius Band, Meathawk and the Meathawks, The Sometimes, and the Sun Parade.

Admission is $10 cash at the door. Beer and wine will be available.

Arts Night Out: Suzuki Cellists of NCMC || U.S. Schematic Maps

Click Workspace opens its doors for another Arts Night Out evening. This month features...

5:30-6:30 p.m: Performance by the Suzuki cello students of Northampton Community Music Center.

The Suzuki Cellists of NCMC take cello lessons each week and study in group classes twice a month.  They range in age from 3 to 17 years old and while some have been studying cello for over 10 years, others have been playing for less than a year.  All of them look forward to performing together for the community at Arts Night Out!

On display: Transit Authority Figures' graphic art exhibition, "United States Schematic Maps" (closing month)

Think of any state in the USA. 

Picture the general iconic shape of that state. Now imagine all the locations you’ve heard of—cities, vacation spots, college towns, roadside attractions, mountains, beaches, battlefields, the famous and the infamous. How many can you mentally pin onto that shape? With what degree of accuracy?

Inspired by subway maps, these schematics position and link the ‘most important’ places in every state. And—like subway maps—positioning is somewhat distorted, detail is eliminated, and lines are straightened to create the most simple and memorable diagram possible. 

By approximating relative locations in an orderly and minimal fashion, we hope to create for the observer new mental maps that endure long after viewing.
