[Heard on the way home tonight on NPR's All Things Considered...]
Washington, D.C.'s Musical Experiments
"One of its homes is the Velvet Lounge, a neon-lit bar with
blood-colored walls on the fringe of the city's uber-trendy U Street
corridor...On a recent evening, a motionless crowd packs the lounge's
dark upper bar. The whine is intense. It's a relentless, unforgiving,
slightly pulsating, shrill cry of a sound. It's being produced as part
of an event called the Sonic Circuits Festival of Experimental Music,
which showcases electronic, experimental and avant-garde music."
"Surak is a regular fixture at Electric Possible, a gathering of
die-hard experimental-music junkies who meet monthly in a basement
classroom of George Washington University's music department."
