Doors at 7. Music at 7:30pm
Lou Mallozzi presents a rare solo set of improvisations with turntables, CDs, mixer, microphones, and text. The set will be intertwined with questions, arguments and discussion posed by theorist and artist Seth Kim-Cohen. The result may be an improvised performance that contains its own interrogation, or an interrogation that improvises its own performance. (Photo by Mary Mclane.)
