Description

In anticipation of a November 17, 2013 performance of Rhys Chatham's A Secret Rose for 100 electric guitars at the Craneway Pavilion (Richmond, CA), Other Minds has teamed up with the Lab for an exciting preview event!

Announcement of the official application and call for guitarists
A discussion with Rhys Chatham on the history of his 100-200 guitar ensemble pieces
Performance of his groundbreaking work Guitar Trio (1977)
A chance to meet and talk to the artists, including Rhys Chatham

Written in 1977, G3 is Rhys Chatham's signature composition, and with good reason. With a single, repeated chord, Chatham permanently altered the DNA of rock by splicing the gritty, overtone-drenched minimalism of John Cale and Tony Conrad with the elemental fury of the Ramones. Tonight's performance teams Rhys Chatham up with some of the best musicians in the Bay Area.

Rhys Chatham (guitar)
Ava Mendoza (guitar)
John Schott (guitar)
George Chen (guitar)
John Krausbauer (guitar)
Lisa Mezzacappa (bass)
Jordan Glenn (drums)

The performance will be accompanied by Robert Longo's film Pictures for Music (1979).
