      8pm: Ben Bracken
      9pm: Larnie Fox's Cranks Ensemble

      Ben Bracken plays music that is sometimes electronic
      and sometimes acoustic, sometimes improvised and
      sometimes scripted, sometimes loud and sometimes
      quiet. To do this he uses prepared guitar, laptop,
      junk, field recordings, contact mics, feedback and
      silence. He is currently enrolled at Mills College for
      an MFA of Electronic Music and working on both
      performance and installation oriented works and is
      especially interested in the issues of the perception
      of space as mediated by sound.

      Larnie Fox writes:
      The crank is the mechanical version of a loop. By
      using hand-cranked instruments, we are able to create
      rhythmic and repetitive patterns easily. We can alter
      the sound by altering the crank's speed and direction,
      and we can also use plucking and scratching. By
      working in an ensemble, we can create layers of
      sound.The resulting sounds are surprisingly pleasing.
      They can range from sparse new-music style "plinking"
      to melodic loopiness to hardcore noise. I made the
      first instruments for a performance at the Garden of
      Memory event, organized by Sarah Cahill. I was working
      on more mechanized sound sculptures, but became
      frustrated by the lack of nuance and the presence of
      motor noise. Once I built the instruments, I needed to
      recruit people to crank them. I was very lucky to find
      some exceptional people and perform with them.
