[rohrpost] in celebration of "life and creation", this saturday

dear list members,

our hearts go out to those affected by the
tragedy of september 11. but it is necessary to
show we are strong and not weak. also it is
necessary to just show solidarity for fellow
humans, and bond together across borders of race,
religion, politics. we should not pit ourselves
"us vs. them". this is a dangerous notion. so,
instead, we propose to get together and celebrate

please join us this saturday, in celebration of
"life and creation".

if nothing else, to see a familiar face,
off-list, as i am sure mark amerika, the alt-x
crew, and myself would welcome a
familiar face and some dialogue: in collaboration with Cristine Wang

Sound Performers: Twine

The Milk Factory just compared Twine to both
Autechre and Mille Plateaux,
saying their music is "inspired by the work of
John Cage, Stauckhausen and
the electro-acoustic movement," and that "Twine's
evolutive rhythmic
patterns and multifaceted use of the same sound
sources create a unique
collection of avant-gardist musical forms, firmly
set into its own
cultural landscape, but open to the outside
world." They have new and
forthcoming releases out on Komplott (Sweden),
Hefty Records (Chicago) and
Bip Hop (France).

Moving Image Projections: FILMTEXT - "source
