Free salon at DMG to introduce Elliott Sharp's upcoming book IrRational Music  -  Tuesday, May 1, 2018 at 6:30pm

Elliott Sharp has written a book! IrRational Music, a combination of memoir, music theory, and cultural criticism will be published on Nov. 1 by Terra Nova Books in collaboration with Found Sound Editions. 

IrRational Music is a mix of tales from the road and sky with thoughts on music, art, and the process of thinking itself collected in a beautifully printed and illustrated book with accompanying graphic scores

To introduce the book and a Kickstarter campaign to fund its publication, E# will do a short solo performance on acoustic guitar and read an excerpt. David Rothenberg of Terra Nova and Kyla Rose-Smith of Found Sound Nation will also be on hand to speak about the project. Refreshments will be served.

“Elliott Sharp’s writing, like his music, recombines the scrupulously discursive with the deeply humane and reflective. What a joy it is to be informed by this remarkable account of the coming-of-age of his psyche, his curiosity, and his methodology. Sharp paints a picture of lost kingdoms of the avant-garde which aren’t really lost, but continuous in our present if we’re inclined to notice them. With this book, a reader joins Sharp in the step-by-step reinvigoration of intentional sound itself – sound as culture, as science, as art -- a process that can never be finished.” – Jonathan Lethem (Author of Motherless Children, Fortress Of Solitude)

Sunday, May 6th: 6pm: THOMAS HELTON and BRANDON LOPEZ - Contrabass Duo // 7pm: NICOLA HEIN and ROBERT DICK - Guitar and Flutes
