The Marvelous 5 year Anniversary
Wow! That’s a whole lot of pedals:
A night with Mincemeat or Tenspeed’s stuff @ the Marvelous
208 S. 40th Street
BE YOUR OWN MINCEMEAT OR TENSPEED
When you get down to it, the whole project is basically one big
orchestrated f-up. Its about accidents
- Davey Harms on Mincemeat or
Come one. Come all. Its time to lay out your accident-prone self in front
of the masses for the purposes of celebratory jubilation in honor of the
Marvelous 5th. And since that’s the place that Bowerbird got it’s start,
we thought we thought we’d do something extra special. Think of it as a pin
the tail on the donkey for techno noise geeks. Youll get a chance to play
Daveys unpatented no synthesizers, samplers, sequencers, drum machines,
crazy computer programs, or musical instruments maze of pedals. You think
you can do it better? Cool. Lets hear it. You think you cant do it at
all? Even better.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Join us for an evening of completely unpredictable fun with special guests,
local celebrities, and maybe even you, jamming out, in sublime and
hopefully ludicrous musical configurations, all in good fun. Wanna throw
down? Bring bribes and gifts to the Marvelous at 8pm sharp, or plead your
case to: iwannamincemeat bowerbird org.

Even in an age of massive technological advances, the power of spoken word
remains an unparalleled means of communication. In the years of
presidential elections, the rhetoric and speeches become an even more
important part of the public conciseness. But how important are the words
to their context and how fast can they loose their meaning? And how easily
can they be given a new meaning? Or have no meaning at all and become just
sounds? And when can sounds have more meaning than words?
This evening, Bowerbird features three very different artists whose work
deals with the relationship between human sound production, speech and
spoken word, and the way in which we as listeners are able to apply meaning
to what we hear. This event will include a performance/lecture by Austrian
sound artist and composer Bernhard Gal, a selection of compositions for
trombone and prerecorded voice performed by Philadelphia based Steve
Parker, and id m theft ables (Maine, USA) raw and visceral
experimentations in mouth noise.
