Richard Lerman + Susie Kozawa

Pioneering audio artist Richard Lerman performs works for sound with video and film, assisted by Seattle's Eric Lanzillotta and members of the Eye Music ensemble. Program includes Entrance Music, for home-made microphones and Walkman cassette tape delay; Changing States 8, for metal microphones, butane torches and computer; Music for Plinky, Bicycle & Straw, for home-made instruments, bicycle, drinking straws, and Walkman cassette delay; Sections for Screen, Performers & Audience, for 16mm film and live performers; and Sonic Journeys 2, featuring excerpts from Lerman's Transducer Series of field recordings made with self-made microphones and dual video projections.

Seattle treasure and sound collector/instrument builder Susie Kozawa opens the show (starting at 7 PM) with an admiring throng of local artists joining her in a sonic celebration of her 60th birthday. Bring an object that makes a sound.
