Dada artist Kurt Schwitters’s classic “Sonata In Primeval Sounds,” also called “Ursonate,” is performed by Ursonate Urchestra, with Lead Parachute and special guest Mitch Ahern, as part of GonzoQuest’s Final Fridays Open Mike Night, on Friday, May 29th at 8pm, Paper City Studios, 80 Race Street, in Holyoke. The open mike, interspersed with “Ursonata” movements, features performance poets, artists with slideshows, and musicians: sign up at 7:30pm.
Published in 1932, Kurt Schwitters’ “Sonata In Primeval Sounds”–also called “Ursonate”–is the granddaddy of sound-art poems: a 45-minute nonsense opus that develops 26 abstract themes in sonata form. Ursonate Urchestra co-founder Andy Laties’ rousing participatory interpretations were honored in Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art’s “Chicago Artists 1945-1995″ retrospective. His partners in Ursonate Urchestra are vocalist Rebecca Migdal and percussionist Eric Blitz; they are joined tonight by experimental sound ensemble Lead Parachute, featuring John Landino on trombone, Glove on guitar and tape measure, and Denis Luzuriaga on synthesizers. Invented-instrument maker Mitch Ahern rounds out the show with his electroluxo-pipophone.
