premiere: Ben von Wildenhaus - World Best

Long time readers of my blog will know that I’m always a fan of weirdo electric guitar players. Here’s another piece from this North Western artist who’s awkward angles feel so perfect for a Monday morning.

His new album How He Performs LP is avail on cassette on Brooklyn’s Psychic Mule Records. Filmed by Danny Boulet a couple weeks ago in a warehouse in Georgetown, Seattle, Washington.

Previously: “Cumberland Winter

NEPO 5K DON’T RUN - Installation/Performance Julia Freeman/Ben von Wildenhaus

imageNEPO 5km DON’T RUN

SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 7th 2013, 12 - 8 PM
START AT HING HAY PARK (INTERNATIONAL DISTRICT)
FINISH AT NEPO HOUSE (BEACON HILL)
ADMISSION $10 (children are free)

On Saturday September 7th 2013 NEPO House is proud to present the third iteration of NEPO 5k DON’T RUN, a 5km art walk from the International District to Beacon Hill. Julia Freeman and Ben von Wildenhaus will be collaborating for the NEPO and creating a piece that explores equally the awkwardness and beauty of “making.”

Five small “peep-windows” on Freeman’s large circus tent allow viewers/walkers an intimate, immersive relation to a show in which four pairs of hands methodically “perform” acts of making/destroying/repairing and (re)forming.

As the peepshow takes place, Wildenhaus’s music factory churns out a live, evolving soundtrack. Precariously perched on a stack of wood pallets with his amplifier, chair, and tools, he performs a westernized brand of Middle Eastern fantasy and captures it on a cassette recorder.
