No Idea Festival—San Antonio (first set), 27 Jan 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 10:33 pm

first set, part one: Nick Hennies (solo percussion & electronics)

Nick’s solo piece involved a laptop, a snare drum, an i-pod, and aluminum foil and was a relatively low-volume exploration of lapping waves of overtones and textures…

first set, part two (Nick Hennies/Alexander Bruck duo)

next, Nick was joined by Mexico City-based string player Alexander Bruck for a quiet subtle duo improv, exploring extended techniques and microtones on their instruments…beautiful, and the audience was silent and totally into it!

 We were sitting about two feet from Mr. Bruck, able to study his masterful manipulation of microtones at low volume on his instrument…

Alas, we could stay only for the first set, but what a set it was! Thanks to Ben Judson/Heavy Denim for bringing The No Idea Festival to San Antonio once again this year!
