1400 of anything
by Vas Deferens (tif bullard & max alexander) appeared at New Blood II
performance festival at Links Hall, Chicago, Illinois on Saturday, November 8, 2008.1400 of anything
is a performance that juxtaposes Pop Music words and melodies over dense, textural noise compositions. It takes the notion of a mash-up to the extreme, decontextualizing the Pop Song and questioning its very nature. The performance is not meant to be an ironic take on Pop Music, but instead expose new layers and meanings, hopefully some of the subtler ones that can often go unnoticed in their traditional setting and, of course, the ones explored almost exclusively by music tagged in the genre of noise. Indeed, it is in the combination of the extremes of subtlety that new colors of music can be discovered.
