4/27/10: DuRoche/Wallsmith, Jenkins, multimedia

From Ultrapdx: "Curator and dancer Danielle Ross invites a handful of improvising artists and musicians to dig into the on-the-fly creative process in Up For grabs: An Evening of Improvisation Tuesday, April 27 at 9 PM atValentine’s (232 SW Ankeny). The evening includes work by Lena Munday (sound), David Bryant (film), Tim DuRoche and Reed Wallsmith (sound), Danielle Ross and Jean Paul Jenkins (sound/movement), Karl Lind (video), Nathan Warner (movement), and Future Death Toll (sound). I don’t know all of the performers but I can tell you that Lind has been working on a series of street videos at least one of which nearly got him into a fight, Jean-Paul Jenkins is one of Portland’s most interesting musical improvisors with a wide palette of sound, DuRoche and Wallsmith (percussion and sax) have an ongoing and rich musical dialogue with roots in a jazz tradition, Warner comes to movement from a lit. background, and FDT improvises with sounds at a sonic frequency that just might recalibrate your heartbeat."
