David Nelson's shows at 846 Texas continue to be mesopolitan opportunities for cortical contusion and cosmic comics.
Next week he has a Parisian woman who won these accolades from a snapper on flickr.com: "elmapi's music was the most accessible (and beat-driven) of the night; check out samples at elmapi.org and myspace.com/elmapi."
Also on the doock is a vampler from Wash, DC, who calls himself Matterlink. He is a filmmaker and time/space experimenter.
At vampler.net it says "sampling performances of Matterlink lie somewhere between the movie and concert experience. Working both solo or teaming up with various musicians, he samples from thousands of digitized film/video fragments both shot and found, playing the space/time pockets from a midi-keyboard. These raw elements are then reworked, looped, altered forming sound and image-scapes punctuated by spoken and sung words."
