Experimental Music Yearbook’s 2015 issue is celebrated with presentations of work by Madison Brookshire, Francesco Gagliardi, and Paula Matthusen.


Los Angeles-based artist and filmmaker Madison Brookshire presents a text score for electric guitar inspired by blues and Lawrence Weiner, performed by Che Chen (75 Dollar Bill). In Brookshire’s Five Lines, a six-piece ensemble follows a video projection in which a spot of sunlight moves over five, hand-drawn lines, transforming the screen into a subtly shifting musical score. Performance artist Francesco Gagliardi presents a series of acoustic performances for manipulated objects, handmade and found. His gymnastic tabletop performances are exercises in memory and perception, rendering rhythms equally sonic and visual. Composer Paula Matthusen draws from field recordings in sites of historical infrastructure. In this case, recordings of improvisations with recorder player Terri Hron beneath an ancient Roman aqueduct form the undercurrent of a live performance.
