Brian Chase’s Drums and Drones + Ursula Scherrer at Constellation

June 24 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Brian Chase’s Drums and Drones + Ursula Scherrer at Constellation

Drums and Drones is the solo project of Brian Chase (Yeah Yeah Yeahs / John Zorn) and is performed in conjunction with the stunning visuals of video artist Ursula Scherrer. The project uses drums and percussion as a medium for ‘going inside the sound:’ that of constructing expansive soundscapes, like aural snapshots of tone, to uncover the richness of sonic depth hidden within the resonance of these instruments. Similarly, the visual component investigates and reconstructs elements of found forms, whether in filmed objects or simply light itself. In the live video projections, an architectural abstraction continues to emerge and re-evolve, and layers stack to reveal shifting fields of depth and perception. Drums and Drones credits initial inspiration to La Monte Young and Marian Zazeela’s legendary Dream House installation in TriBeCa, NYC.

This concert will be in support of the June 15th released Drums and Drones triple album and 144 page book on Brian’s own Chaikin Records.

On the debut Drums and Drones album/DVD:�”This stuff will put your brain into another space, and frankly, recordings that can reliably do that don’t come down the pike every day.” -Bruce Russell, The Wire
