Masters of Sonic Liberation series begins at 118 Elliot

BRATTLEBORO — The KaneLoggiaHypothesis presents "Masters of Sonic Liberation," a new performance series highlighting artists in the field of experimental music at 118 Elliot on three Saturdays: Oct. 28, Nov. 18, and Dec. 16.

"Arising from the modes of improvisation, free jazz, noise, avant-garde, modern composition, electronics, electro-acoustic, vocal work, and traditional instrumentation," say organizers, "the unifying principle of these artists is their dedication to exploratory, hypothetical, investigational, probing, observational, theoretical, innovative, inventive, radical, avant-garde, anti-normative, alternative, fringe, unfamiliar, unorthodox, unconventional, unusual, eccentric, avant-garde, avant-core, free thinking, way-out music."

Organizers say both physical and streaming audiences "will be treated to unique sounds and first-time-ever performances, guaranteed to inspire wonder, amazement and delight. Each evening will bring the listener deeper into the world of musicians who have left the norms and abandoned the pop and easy listening culture to continually investigate and create music of the greatest depth and personal expression that reaches directly into the algebra of the mind, heart, and soul."

Curated by improvisor and sax/flute/electronics artist Bonnie Kane, the series features musicians based in New York and New England, including Aron Namenwirth, Federico Balducci, Marc Edwards, Tor Snyder, Takuma Kanaiwa, Eric Dahlmen, Dave Pek, Glynis Lomon, Ayumi Ishito, Dei Xhrist, Bonnie Kane and John Loggia.

The host of the series, KaneLoggiaHypothesis, is the experimental duo of improvisors Bonnie Kane and John Loggia. Kane is known as a pioneer in electronic processing for flute and saxophone. She says she is captivated by the focus required to be in the moment of creation, and the purity found there. Loggia, a multi-instrumentalist, has been described as drawing the percussive nature out of each instrument he plays: drums, piano, electronics, and guitar.

For details on the series, visit Doors open at 7 p.m.; a $10 donation is suggested. 118 Elliot, a gallery and performance space, is at 118 Elliot St.
