AMRA/ARMA: The ...7:30 pm—9:00 pm
Amra/Arma, the legendary Hyborean performance group, will be arriving in our century from the mists of eons past to perform at Bainbridge Island Museum of Art.
Amra/Arma was founded by the late composer, Stanley Lunetta who passed away last year. Mr. Lunetta was a well-known avant garde composer/performer/instructor who taught at the University of California, Davis and collaborated with the likes of John Cage, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Robert Ashley, Terry Riley, Allen Strange and Steve Reich. He was a self-taught digital electronic synthesizer inventor and builder, constructing machines that thought for themselves and, with the prodding of human beings, could compose and perform music spontaneously.Amra/Arma combines the high technology of digital sound that Lunetta pioneered with the brute energy of primeval percussion and the aesthetics of Hyborian culture (derived from the mythos developed by pulp fiction authors Robert E. Howard (Conan the Barbarian), Michael Moorcock (The Eternal Champion) and H.P. Lovecraft (the Cthulhu saga). The group's history dates back to it's premier at The International Carnival of Experimental Sound (ICES) in London, England in 1972 and has continued with performances on the West Coast.As a Tribute to Mr. Lunetta, the surviving members of Amra/Arma (Ken Horton, Kurt Bischoff and Karl Bischoff) have joined with brothers Jherek and Korum Bischoff to perform what promises to be a spectacular event. Jherek Bischoff (besides being the son of Kurt Bischoff) is a noted composer and performer in his own right, having collaborated with David Byrne, the Kronos Quartet, Amanda Palmer, and Neil Gaiman. He recently acted as music director for the debut of Sandman, Robert Wilson's latest production, and has had his album Cistern performed (and the video displayed in Times Square, NY. Korum Bischoff is a well-known local percussionist and instructor and is a member of the Grammy-nominated kindie rock band Recess Monkey.This concert will feature some of Lunetta's own musical sculptures (performing their own self-actuated compositions), a surround-sound system, many different types of percussion instruments, and sub-sonic and altered bass instruments.
