Episode 24 of Weird Wednesday is this Thursday, Oct 29th, 7:30pm @ Barbes. October is weird duos month yes it is, so we present not one but two weird duos. Dalius Naujokaitis-Naujo and Daniel Jodocyare Siabus. They play folkloric New York City music on invented instruments. Terry Dame and Lee Free are Horn of Plenty. They play grooves from Mars on invented instruments. This will rock. Spread the word and be there or be normal.
Friends, May will be the lastof Terry Dame's Weird Wednesdays until September and I am delighted to announce that The Weird Wednesday Atoms will be the featured act. This is the dream team of invented instrument ensembles featuring Ken Butler, Ed Potokar, Daniel Jodocy and myself, Terry Dame. Plus, live sonic drawing by Sandra Koponen and special guest to be announced. Semi-conducted, improvised, original sound and music compositions live at Barbes. We premeierd this ensemble at Pioneer Works in early April, and just had to do it again. Hope to see you there.
This Thursday, March 26th is Episode 22 of Terry Dame's Weird Wednesdays at Barbes. March is weird string month and I'll be presenting two instrument inventors who focus on string inspired contraptions. Featuring guest artists Kelvin Daly and Nick Demopolous. Approaching their designs from opposite ends of the spectrum these two artists will take us on a stringy sonic adventure. As usual I will also present a new short thematic piece to open the evening. Check out Kelvin and Nick's work via the links below. Also visit the Weird Wednesdays facebook page, like our page and never miss a moment of the weirdness. Hope to see you soon.

This month's guest artists: Federico Muelas and Merche Blasco
Terry Dame's Weird Wednesdays continues with the fall edition. This month features two guest weirdos coincidentally both from Spain, thus we are dubbing October "weird Spaniard Month". I will be presenting a new collaborative work with visual and multi-media artist Federico Muelas call SonicGraphite/2B. This interactive performance piece allows participants to interact with specially created graphite bars that trigger sounds when used to draw. Allowing the artist to literally draw music and sound and created unique compositions based on drawing. I have invited several guest artists to participate in the drawing so this promises to be an amazing evening. Also performing will be artist and technologist Merche Blasco. Merche will be performing live set with her original gestural controllers and optical Theremin. This promises to be a great evening of new and unusual creative work.
