An evening of six live noise performances by

DSE
Chelsea Rector
Shane Stritesky
Unica
Crowhurst
Witches of Malibu

David Schafer was invited by David Kordansky to perform and curate an evening of live noise entitled INTERSIST at the David Kordansky Gallery on Smiley Drive, Culver City.

In Sartre’s “Nausea”, the character Roquentin experiences an existential crisis that is referenced as interstitial. To coexist, resist, subsist, persist, obsist. To intersist – and live in between signification. Similar to Roquentin’s crisis, Jacques Atalli wrote in “Noise: A Political Economy of Music” to think of the idea of noise as the mutation of code, a carrier of death, but simultaneously a carrier of new information. “The absence of meaning is in this case the presence of all meaning”.

DSE live-processed Arnold Schoenberg’s work entitled “Erwartung”. Erwartung (translation: Expectation), Op. 17, 1909. A one-act 30 minute monodrama, an opera for a single soprano with orchestra, epitomizes Schoenberg’s early atonal style. The story is a psychological snapshot of the moment a woman comes across the dead body of her lover in the woods. Schoenberg’s description of Erwartung was as follows: “In Erwartung the aim is to represent in slow motion everything that occurs during a single second of maximum spiritual excitement, stretching it out to half an hour”.

“What Should an Astronaut Painter Do?” includes two sculptures that have accompanying sound with text and graphic work. Each sculpture has to do with a male figure of history, the astronaut Buzz Aldrin, and the painter Barnett Newman, both from the late 60’s. The space of the gallery becomes a walk in sound collage with both sculptures’ activating the gallery with sounds emitting and overlapping. Newman and Aldrin talking over each other about their challenges, successes, and doubts.
