Time spent posting things on the internet is time spent NOT making art. PPL just spent a good three hours uploading images of recent performances from Berlin during MPA-B onto Facebook. Click here to spend some of your own time on the internet perusing…Now back in the bowels of Brooklyn, last night we got a chance to get good and sweaty with the work of Argentinian composer Ellen C. Covito at Vaudeville Park in a concert produced with No Collective and involving a tremendous dream-team of composers, choreographers, dancers, and musicians all beating themselves silly against walls between composer and performer, structure and improvisation, etc. Before the Covito, HAG, the project of Sean Ali, David Grollman, and Brad Henkel blew out the earwax with balloons manipulated, cymbals ringing as they scraped across drum head, bone-shaking upright bass and deft bone-hole-boring blasts and gasps of trumpet…they began all the rolling around on the score covering the whole floor too. You can and should buy their new album Moist Areas. Good times!
