Jaap Blonk, one of the foremost practitioners of far out sound poetry and performance will join us for a night of strange noise. Blonk has recorded with many great contemporary jazz and improvisational musicians, including Mats Gustaffson and John Tchicai, and is probably my favorite performer of the 20th Century sound poetry repertoire. He's legit. This will be cool, but it won't be for everybody, thank god. But maybe it's for you?
