Non-Event at Home: Rob Noyes live at home

Non-Event

Live set by guitarist Rob Noyes, recorded in his Tokyo apartment on 4/11/20.

“ROB NOYES has been on the Eastern Massachusetts scene for a while, but what we’ve heard him play is music from within the context of electric bands, most of whom are loud as hell and exist somewhere along the rim of the post-core continuum. More recently, Rob has taken to displaying his solo acoustic guitar chops and they are massive….. Rob’s playing carries the weight of many possibly-imaginary forebears, but the way he smears them all together shows a holistic mastery of touch and imagination that defies a lot of today’s players, who tend to shine in short bursts, then allow their dreams to outrun their technique.” —Byron Coley

Non-Event at Home: tk, Live Pre-Quarantine, March 1, 2020

Non-Event

Non-Event · tK, “Live Pre-Quarantine March 1st, 2020” (Non-Event at Home)

Noise improv trio tK (Heather Kapplow, Phil Milstein, Thalia Zedek) formed at the start of 2018, and released Bandcamp albums Urchin Figurines and Sixteen Tones in our first year. We spent much of 2019 on hiatus due to the travel schedules of various members, but released two remotely-produced “5 Minute” cassettes on Wee Space Tapes in that year.

Our first rehearsal after reconvening in early 2020 found us knocking the rust off our instruments, but we rose to the occasion at our next one, playing unexpectedly at peak form. It’s been rare for us to arrive at unanimous views of our performances, but each of us felt the magic during this March 1 session, and once again when listening back to the recording. It is from that recording that we present this set.

tK will be releasing a full album, Quarta Voce — in download and cassette formats — on Wrong Whole Archival Records Bureau later this year.

Part of the Non-Event at Home online series, which posts every Tuesday and Friday. http://www.nonevent.org

Excerpt of: Hot Water Over Raised Fists (tech run)

Connections Dance Theater

As an artist whose goal is to further amplify the current issues of Black and Indigenous people, I strive to use narratives directly from people impacted in the production of my works. The first piece performed on this video is a comment on the destruction of capitalism focused on the Huni Kuin Tribe's testimony about the fires in the Amazon that are affecting their way of life. The voices you hear are from tribal members and below are the translations. The second piece is inspired by the power and lure of water. It flows through all of us, nurtures all of us, connects us, has the power to protect us and the ability to destroy us if we are not careful about the maintaining the natural balance of people and the earth.

Translations extracted from: https://youtu.be/4-IJieq5NOw

1.) “Without the forest, we have nothing. We are nothing. The forest Is our mother, our house, our home. Without the forest, there’s nothing. There won’t be any Indigenous people left.”- Txana Sia, Huni Kuin Tribe
2.) “ The global climate, the sun’s temperature, unpredictable rain… all that happens because they are destroying nature, [and it is nature] that regulates all. Nature does everything for us.”- Txana Sia, Huni Kuin Tribe
3.) "It is very important for us to preserve traditions because we have our knowledge in our tradition, our culture. It is a beautiful thing, and I feel very proud to be Indigenous and to keep my tradition."- Txana Sia, Huni Kuin Tribe
4.) "If you don't get to know it, who is going to keep this?"- Isaka, Spiritual Leader/Clan Elder, Huni Kuin Tribe
5.) “We were scared because we couldn’t put out the flames. We used all of the water we had but it was impossible.” -Buni, Huni Kuin Tribe
