Terry Dame's Science Music Roadshow hits the stage at Pioneer Works in Red Hook as part of the Second Sunday Series on April 12 at 6:30 pm. I've gathered an amazing ensemble of instrument inventors to do a large semi-conductor night of creative improvised music on original instruments . Check out this line up...Kenny Wollesen on some handmade percussion contraption, Ken Butler on a bowed string contraption, Ed Potokar on Pegleg and Nuketron, Ranjit Bhatnagar's "Big Whirly Thing, Sandra Koponen doing live drawing on my SonicDrawing palate, Daniel Jodacy on tape drums, and me on Horn of Plenty Sounds and Electric Slinkys. Plus Erin Greenwell doing live projected video so you don't miss a trick. This will be epic so I hope you can join us .PioneerWorks is an amazing space. 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.

Directed by Mickey Duzyj, this is the story of the world's most losingest race horse...that's right, this horse never won a single race but became a national hero and symbol of perseverance in Japan. I think this one is going to be fun!
