The Stranger, August 22, 2002

By Chris Delaurenti


This CoCA-sponsored series seeks to expose sonic elements shared by rock and experimental music. I've dabbled in both. At its best, rock supplies attitude and urgency. Messing with experimental music demands a bigger, bolder leap: questioning all musical parameters, from the requirement of a steady rhythm to whether or not the performers should even show up. The series' inaugural show features Steve Gigante of the Olympia-based free-improvising ensemble Old Time Relijun, the Murderous Copulation of Birds (with Gregory Reynolds on alto sax and the occult voice of Cristin Miller), and a solo violin performance by Michael White. CoCA, 1420 11th Ave, 728-1980, 9 pm, $5.
