Christian Marclay with Elliott Sharp Trio, Okkyung Lee Trio - World Financial Center (Courtyard Gallery) FREE
The most interesting event happening tonight also happens to be a free event. Christian Marclay has created Screen Play, a “collaged film” and score that the Elliott Sharp Trio and Okkyung Lee will interpret. While Marclay is perhaps known best as a conceptual composer of found sound, particularly for his innovative experiments with turntables in the 1970s that occurred simultaneous to those of the Bronx hip hop scene, he is a multi-media artist whose prolific career has regularly interwoven music and visuals. Elliot Sharp, the guitar hero and composer behind everything from Carbon to his Terraplane, continues to crawl all over the musical map – last year alone his releases included an acoustic solo album and a collaboration with legendary Japanoise ear terrorist Merzbow. Equally adventurous Korean cellist Okkyung Lee, in addition to spending her six years in New York playing with an impressive mélange of avant jazz elite, legendary experimental improvisers, pop stars, and noise rockers like Butch Morris, Derek Bailey, Beth Orton, and Thurston Moore, she also performs exquisite solo pieces – many of which have been released on Tzadik. You can get tickets starting at 5pm in the World Financial Center’s Winter Garden – only two per person. Go early because seating is limited.
