"Raz Ohara & The Odd Orchestra "
Get Physical - 2008
Raz Ohara & The Odd Orchestra sees Raz’s potential fully realized - a taut, coherent suite of eleven songs at once world-weary and full of wonder, given wings by the subtle embellishments of The Odd Orchestra – aka Raz’s friend and collaborator Oliver Doerell. Oliver has released albums as Dictaphone and Swod on highly respected electronica imprint City Centre Offices, and has toured the world with both these projects. For Raz Ohara & The Odd Orchestra, he and Raz exchanged song-sketches over a long period of time to hone the album’s unique sound. This album will appeal not just to those who value classy production and electronics, but also those with a penchant for sophisticated, original and timeless pop music.

Michael J. Schumacher is a composer, performer and installation artist based in New York City.

He works predominantly with electronic and digital media, specializing in computer generated sound environments which evolve continuously for long time periods. He imbues these self-creating structures with an abundance of sonic material, resulting in forms that flow through a wide range of moods, timbral combinations and textural densities. In their realization, Schumacher uses multiple speaker configurations which relate the sounds of the installation to the architecture of the exhibition space. Architectural and acoustical considerations thereby become basic structural elements.

Schumacher’s sound installations have been heard at Art in General, Apex Art, PS 1, the Queens Museum and The Kitchen and Sculpture Center in New York City, CCNOA in Brussels, the Technical University and Podewil in Berlin, the Museum for Applied Arts in Frankfurt , the Museum of Contemporary Art in Lyon, Triskel Arts Center in Cork, Ireland, Transmissions Festival in Chicago, SFIFEM in Sante Fe, the Waveform Festival in Sydney, Via 7 Festival in Paris, )toon Festival in Haarlem, and others.

All that shiny, glossy stuff - so large, so speedy, so colorful, so alluring, and so deceitful and unfulfilling. Not just post-Pollock in their computer splatter approach, Yoon Lee paintings also possess a postpop cynicism about advertising imagery and consumer culture even if it isnt immediately apparent or spelled out through helpful text. How do graffiti and urban architecture figure as influences within Lees work? Placed next to each other, are these acrylic polymer and pigment monuments powerful or numbing? Lee's new show, "Verve Syntheses," at the ever great Luggage Store - recently given a deserved deluxe interview profile in ANP Quarterly - should provide some answers. Yoon Lee Selected reviews

Down these mean streets a man must come. A hero born, murdered, and born again.
Adapted from the legendary comic book series created by Will Eisner, "The Spirit" is a classic action-adventure-romance written for the screen and directed by genre-twister Frank Miller (creator of "300" and "Sin City"). It is the story of a former rookie cop who returns mysteriously from the dead as the Spirit (Gabriel Macht) to fight crime from the shadows of Central City. His arch-enemy, the Octopus (Samuel L. Jackson) has a different mission: he's going to wipe out Spirit's beloved city as he pursues his own version of immortality.
