ON THE WAY OUT PRESENTS MUSIC FROM THE NEW YORK UNDERGROUND EVERY 4TH TUESDAY OF THE MONTH AT FREDDY’S!  

8:30pm    Michael Lytle Quartet

Mari Kimura-violin
Nick Didkovsky – guitar
Andrew Drury – drums & percussion
Michael Lytle – clarinet & analogue electronics
Kimura/Didkovsky/Drury/Lytle is one of those sonic combinations of Lytle’s where he is trying to provide an opportunity for colorful and dense textures. He is excited that all these players are improvisors of the highest order and that a remarkable sound fabric is sure to be worn.

10pm       Metis 9

Han-earl Park – electric guitar
Catherine Sikora – saxophones
Josh Sinton – saxophone / clarinet

An orchestrated, real-time, interactive collision between the
cyborgism of guitarist Han-earl Park, and the incomparably original
melodic and timbral sensibilities of saxophonist Catherine Sikora and
saxophonist-clarinetist Josh Sinton. The trio will render into music,
Metis 9, a collection of improvisative tactics, and higher-level
interactive macros for group improvisation designed, designated and
specified by Han-earl Park.

Metis 9 has ‘glorious noise’ or ‘frenzy’ at its root, yet it is not so
much structuring the noise as it is a meta-layer of complexity that
performers can introduce at will. Metis 9 does not tell the performer
what to play, or provide all the details of how to interact, but it is
an additional network protocol for interactive possibilities. Group
improvisation is always the primary protocol; Metis 9 provides
secondary or tertiary tactics that create an additional focused
complexity. The decision for each bloop and bleep is still retained by
the ensemble. These macros enable specific interactionist schemes to
be expressed in an open improvisative context; it is improvisative
play channeled by group consent.
