Words and Music

Saturday June 9, 2012 at 7:30

$8 Suggested donation

Aarhus Gallery is pleased to present an inspiring evening of music and poetry on Saturday June 9, 2012 at 7:30pm. “Words and Music” is an evening of collaboration between four area poets and the electro-acoustic duo Algorithm.

The wordsmiths for the evening are Ellen Sander, author of “Back to the Garden” and the blog “Crackpot Chronicles”, Lauren Murray, author of the recently published “Hear if You Dare”, Joel Lipman, a professor at University of Toledo, the author of “Chicago You Got A Wide Stance” and current Belfast Poet Laureat Jacob Fricke, author of “This Book of Poems You Found”.

“Algorithm” is a new electro-acoustic duo comprised of Mike Whitehead, on trumpet and fluglehorn, and Tom Luther on keyboards. The basic form of the group is supplemented by substantial use of electronic instruments, both live and sequenced. Both musicians are experienced jazz performers, and use their improvising skills in the context of modern electronica and ambient music. The music itself is an amalgam of improvised material and electronic soundscapes crafted by both performers.

There is an $8 suggested donation at the door which includes light refreshments.

Åarhus Gallery, 50 Main Street, Belfast, is open Tuesday-Sunday 11am-5:30pm, or by chance or appointment. For more information please contact or 338-0001.
