Past Shows and Occasional Other Activities, Past to Present

This is a long and rather disorganized list of every concert I have a record of having done since my arrival in Boston. It is not a complete record, though from around 2004 on-wards it’s fairly comprehensive. The list goes back through the year 2000,where I copied announcements directly from old emails here, because that was when I began using the internet to promote shows, and thus have a record of announcements and press releases I sent out. But I started playing concerts of improvised music (and many other sorts of things) as a teenager,  in the late 80s. At present, I have only updated this list properly through 2016, but the last three years, which ran at a similar clip to the previous ones, will be up soon.

Please come to our HEARING- where the zoning board will once again try to call us a “Nightclub”, re-consider our “theater” permit, and try to stop us from doing horrible, evil things like MAKING ART! Numbers are what stop this nonesense from taking a firm hold- huge numbers of folks in teh hearing room, that is. the Zeitgeist has been operating for about 12 years now, and has been- if imperfect- a place where hundreds and hundreds of artists of every stripe have been able to show their work- in a palce where spaces are dwindling and folding faster than you can say Jack Sprat! Come to the hearing and support your- and everyone else’s- RIGHT to make song, poetry, paintings, sculptures, and dance without being stopped, arrested, fined, and harassed!

We’re an Art Space- not a crack house. Come help the Zoning Board understand what the difference in treatment ought to be!

subconsciouscafe new chamber music series


Saturday, 4 January


Steve MacLean – guitar, kora, electronics
Jorrit Dijkstra – alto sax, electronics
Joe Monteiro – zen flea-market percussion

The long-anticipated meeting of Steve & Jorrit improvising together for the
first time (a Nord-Modular extravaganza, “the best synth in the world”) with
Joe Monteiro’s zen concatenations.

Andrew Neumann – laptop, switches, sensors
Katt Hernandez – F# violin
Eric Rosenthal – drums

Katt sez @ the trio:
I have been working with Andrew Neumann for about a year now. Eric Rosenthal
and I have talked about working together a lot, but this will be our first
date playing out. This will be a very high energy group, dense and quick,
and full of fast and tiny detail- a mad calliope of hyper-mepp!* What seems
an unlikely combination- a micro-tonal violinist, an electro-acoustic laptop
player, and a free jazz and klezmer-influenced drummer- yields something
quite unheard of, brought forth from an intent and intense communicatory
fire-storm of electro-acoustic sound.

*Mepp: the jazz of the future today!

An Unacceptable Presentation ~

THE MARTYRDOM OF SAINT NICK : A special holdover presentation of our
Anti-Christmas Pagaent. (cancelled due to harsh meteorological conditions)
Don’t miss this Imaginary Encore Presentation of this delightful puppet play
of death and mayhem

KATT HERNANDEZ & DOCTOR SELENIUM : Following the puppet show, we will
feature a debut performance of this duo. Katt Hernandez will play violin and
Doctor selnium will “play” broken guitars and other devices. Don’t miss this
spectacle! How long will theit tortured instruments last under the strain?

THE NIGHTCOMERS : To round off the evening, we will have an arbitrary 30th
Anniversary screening of this cult movie classic starring Marlon Brando &
Stephanie Beecham and directed by Michael Winner. Brando is at his brutal
best in this strange drama as Quint, the gardener of a huge estate who gives
a perverse education to two weird children about violence, sex and death.

Don’t miss the morbid merriment! Join us in our decadence!

The Unacceptable: a series for music and visuals too volatile for the
conventional performance space. Live music, performance, sound construction,
dance, film, video and puppetry integrate into a provocative, unified
production. The maelstrom strikes every 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month
at Zeitgeist.

Production: Katt Hernandez –

(i did sound design/re-counstruction for the Empire S.N.A.F.U. penduluum)
Opening JANUARY, 17, 2003 6-8pm
The Mills Gallery at the Boston Center for the Arts presents
BOOM BOX: The Art of Sound
free and open to the public
The Boston Center for the Arts is located at 539 Tremont Street,
between Berkeley and Clarendon Streets.
info line(617) 426-5000

This is a group show in an art gallery with white walls, not an installation of
the Nidus-Monad.
If you come hoping to see naked persons and animal carcasses rolling hither and
thither on a dirt floor, you will likely be disappointed.
The show does however include Pendulum #3.3631- an exquisite device constructed
many decades ago by S.N.A.F.U., containing mercury capsules and a gilded
N-uroborus. After many hundred hours intensive restoration, this lustrous,
sonorous, corpuscle of discordant technology is at last free to swing and lurch
lethally. With the assistance of but a shove from your blessed hand, the
pendulum will orchestrate a unique song just for you(utilizing newly recorded
tracks from Katt Hernandez, a virtuoso of twelve tone cat gut if ever there
were one.) YOU CAN BE among THE FIRST to the hear PENDULUM’s non-dulcet
reverberations. Hear it now before it tears lose from its moorings and
decapitates a young, potentially innocent child.

The show contains a multitude of fine cacophony producing devices by the
following artists.
CJ T Cartiglia & Joshua Hydeman -video/lenticular installation
Tracey Cockrell – turns an old Remington typewriter into a musical instrument.
Typewriter keys become piano keys and the musical score is a text.
Christy Georg- self playing, glass harmonica-the voice of an angel or an
unwholesome tone to induce hysteria? You decide…
United States of Belt- sound collage utilizing the audio spotlight developed at
MIT by Dr. Joseph Pompei. The aural equivalent of a very big laser pointer.
Quite capable of inducing madness.
Ravi Jain- concerto for voicemail
Sean Langlais-speakers / sound sculpture
John Mallia- sign in station & wind mills(please do not tilt at them)
Jessican Rylan- resonant spaces + objects
Dirk Adams -sound walk / audio tour
Walker- audio tour
Jeff Warmouth- crazy instruments including a Siamese banjo, a bathtub bass, and
the kitchen sink.
David Webber-hightek/lowtek device hacking of the highest caliber
Ellen Wetmore-turns the gallery stairs into a podiatric calliope

subconsciouscafe new chamber music series:



Steve Lantner – piano
John Turner – bass
Eric Rosenthal – drums

“Pianist Steve Lantner is one of the most original improvisers to emerge in
the past several years. It’s not simply because he is always searching for
something fresh and original, but that his search uncovers more mysteries
and ambiguities than comforting certainties. It also helps that his sound is
unmistakably his own…Some of the more articulate, challenging, and
alluring music being made today.”
– Ed Hazell


Mitch Ahern – LID
Mark Bisson – prepared guitar
William Buchanan – drums
John Voigt – pogo bass
Katt Hernandez – F# violin
Walter Wright – video shredder

The Bopants are a multi-media group, combining music of the electro-acoustic
frontier with live, improvised video. Playing a mostly assortment of
traditional and home-made instruments, including an electrified washing
machine lid, table top guitar, and a wind instrument made from a vacuum
cleaner, their music evokes
everything from Stockhausen to Melt Banana, Sun Ra to swamp blues. Walter
Wright “plays” the video shredder just like another musical instrument,
projecting constantly shifting collages which are an integral part of the
music itself.


Production: Rob Chalfen –

meaning it’s still a Starbucks?free zone. But given the area’s central
location and the introduction of the Silver Line, Roxbury’s historical
center is primed for development. The Berwick Research Institute is one
of the cultural pioneers in the area. They have been providing
alternative programming and cutting?edge art since 2000. This Saturday,
March 15, beginning at 8pm, the Berwick presents Quadraphonics, a full
night of experimental music and dance using our favorite ‘70s sound
system. For us non?techies, quadraphonics is a form of multi-channel
reproduction in which the sound source is spread around the listener by
the use of four channels and four loudspeakers. The speakers behind the
listener add reverberation to the original sound or are simply out of
phase with respect to the front ones. Sounds groovy! Artists include
Scott Smallwood, Jay Sullivan and dZig dZag with the Royal Jelly Dance
Collective. 8pm/all ages/$5; 14 Palmer St., Roxbury; for directions go

Qingping Gallery Teahouse
Saturday, April 5th, 7pm
Admission Free with the purchase of a cup of tea

An evening of music and discussion. Please come and enjoy the
aleatoric, improvised and electronic music of:

Katt Hernandez, solo violin

ONDA, vln., voice, percussion, and electronic sounds

Augenmusik, will perform the following program:

Earle Brown (1926-2002): December 1952

John Cage (1912-1992): FIVE

Christian Wolff (b.1934): Edges

Earle Brown (1926-2002): December 1952

Also, there will be a discussion on the nature, manifestation and value
of improvisation.

How it is approached differently by musicians from different genres? Is
there a difference between aleatoric and improvised music? Is
improvisation “composed”, and how is it different (if it is different)
from composing where “all” the notes, rhythms, sounds, events are
determined by the composers.

-JOHN VOIGT   :improbable duets

JOHN VOIGT: improbable duets
a Night of Deconstructed Prepared Guitars
Marc Bisson & Jon Damian – guitars
Mitchel Ahern – lid, electroluxopipeophone, etc.
John Voigt – bass

Mitchel Ahern, on his own self-invented, electro-acoustic instruments: The
Lid, a vintage 1930’s wringer washing machine lid mounted on a cello-like
body on which are velcro-mounted various electronic effects boxes. The
ElectroLuxoPipeOPhone,(the ElectroLuxo for short) is a linkage of organ-like
pipes on a vacuum cleaner; it sounds like a wind-driven Theramin. He also
does the Bass Rake, the Rotary, The Bluttabruch, Turntables, and
Scratchcassette. He has performed at the Trenton Avant-Garde Festival,
Knitting Factory, AS220, Worcester Artist Group, and The Middle East.

Marc Bisson, prepared guitar, played the Blues for many years. Now he plays
guitar using various “preparations” including kitchen utensils, glass
bottles and alligator clips in order to achieve different sound textures and

Jon Damian is the inventor of the Rubbertellie… a totally standard
guitar, but approached in a totally non-standard way. It is held
differently, played differently, tuned quite differently, hence the
conceptual prefix “rubber” to indicate that it has stretched the traditional
boundaries of the instrument. His varied performances have ranged from Bill
Frisell to Luciano Pavarotti, The Boston Symphony Orchestra under Seiji
Ozawa to Johnny Cash. His work as performer and clinician have taken him to
Asia, South and Central Americas, Europe and Israel. He is originally from
Brooklyn and is currently a professor at the Berklee College in Boston. Some
of Jon Damian’s private students have included guitarists Bill Frisell, Mark
Whitfield, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Leni Stern and Wayne Krantz.

John Voigt, electronic upright bass, a mainstay in the Boston and New York
City free jazz scene. Performed with Peter Brotzmann, Bill Frisell, Keith
Jarrett, Joe McPhee, Jemeel Moondoc, Thurston Moore, Joe Morris, among many
others. Recorded on Aum Fidelity, Eremite, Box Holder, and Ayler Records;
also RRRecords (a video with Thurston Moore).\~freejazz\freejazz.html

Nate’s Sidewalk Parade- we paraded through the river fest, dressed in insane costumery.
I did it anotehr year with MArcus and Ian. Marcus has hidden an inflatable BOST in the buses near the river, along with his paper machee floats of teh decimated statue of liberty and his bush mask. Me and Ian were all flambouyant, Ian has his boombox head and beady guitar, and i was dressed as the harlequin with the stroh fiddle. so marcus ran behind teh bushes, and blew up his boat and hopped in(bush mask, toga, liberty float and all), and soon as we saw him frantically row out and join the end of teh boat parade we ran down to the river and plyed loud to attract attention. and since we looked like part-a teh proceedings, no-one realized we weren’t supposed to be ther except a pratty little futrue haa-vaard kid who sneered “look mom, hippies”.

Hi folks,
A friendly alert: Sleeper Cell, the no holds barred impovisatory
ensemble congenially spearheaded by David Maxwell on piano and Moroccan
flutes will be activated at the ultra hip Zeitgeist Gallery, 1353

~ The Ken Field Alto Saxophone Project~ &
~The James Coleman Trio~

The Tremont Theater, 276 Tremont St., Boston, MA
T-Stop: Orange Line -New England Medical Center-

Tickets: $10.00 students $8.00

Alto saxophonist Ken Field’s music for layered saxophones has been described
as an “extraordinary” stylistic mix referencing elements of “Sun Ra, chant,
trance, and saxophone quartets” (Mark Corroto, SoS Jazz). Field’s recent
interest in New Orleans funk and street beat rhythms promises a unique
evening of “Twentieth Century head music with
a swinging beat” (Tom Schulte, Outsight).

Joining Field will be the acclaimed alto saxophonists Charlie Kohlhase and
Neil Leonard, drummer Grant Smith from the Klezmer Conservatory Band, and
acoustic bassist Derek Van Beever, who has worked with Sam Rivers and

Field is a saxophonist, flautist, percussionist, and composer. He has
performed in North America, Europe, and Asia. A member of the legendary
modern music ensemble Birdsongs of the Mesozoic, he has released several
solo CDs of his music for layered saxophones. Field
has performed for Bill Clinton and with Peter Wolf and Delfeayo Marsalis.
His music is heard often on Sesame Street. For more information, visit


Opening the show will be theremonist James Coleman joined by Katt Hernandez
on violin and Todd Glacy on guitar synthesizer. Coleman, an important
member of the Boston improvisation scene, “is able to create an entire
universe of ever-shifting textures” (Ken Waxman, Jazz Weekly). Never falling
on the over used “sci-fi” effects the instrument is known for, Coleman uses
a unique and subtle sound palette of “whistles and pulses, chattering and
scratching” (Jeremy Keens, Ampersand Electronica) to create a subtle,
non-pulse driven soundscape. His music has the ambience of ancient chinese
music with the sensibilties of the 1960¹s, Evan Parker improvisation world.
Coleman has played in a variety of settings which include performances with
Nmperign, Joe McPhee, and Eddie Prevost.
His music can be heard at

Each group will play a set of approximately 40 minutes.

The studio extracts $15 from the door towards expenses and the rest goes to
the musicians/artists. I suggested a larger donation for the musicians
coming from Europe as a courtesy to help them on their travels. Hopefully
they will come away from Boston with some support both financial and
spiritual i.e. a good feeling in their hearts. I simply ask that regardless
of expenses that you come and support these fine musicians-Sincerely Eric

On Saturday, August 25, from noon to 6pm, Zeitgeist Gallery will celebrate
its 7th birthday by holding “Z-Day,” an outdoor festival of music, art, and
theater in Sennott Park near Central Square, Cambridge. The festival is free
and is partially funded by the Area Four Neighborhood Coalition. Located at
the corner of Broadway and Norfolk Street, Sennott Park is across the street
from the Zeitgeist Gallery, which is at 312 Broadway. The telephone of the
Zeitgeist is (617) 876-2182. The Gallery and Park are wheelchair accessible.

Performers will include:
The Burrs (popadelic funk & roll)‹12:00
The Sula Da Silva Band (Brazilian jazz)–1:00
Rich Mackin (the Consumer Defense Poet)‹2:00
P.R.O.T.O.N. (People¹s Republic Open Temple Of News)-2:30

Evil Circus (jazz)‹5:15pm

The Zeitgeist has weathered 7 years of regular rent increases. Artists and
musicians may find it harder than ever to live in Cambridge, but the
Zeitgeist has been able to host thousands of artists and musicians of every
stripe. Over the years, Zeitgeist has been the home of Stone Soup Poets,
Radio Free Cambridge, the Playground Jazz Series, Pandora¹s Box Performance
Art Series, the Cambridge Inferno Comic Magazine, and the Art & Performance
Party. Kid¹s art workshops, yoga classes, life-drawing sessions, community
meetings, slide-shows, pot-lucks, and political talks are just a sampling of
what the gallery has offered. The Zeitgeist Gallery invites everyone to this
free outdoor festival to celebrate having made it this far and to figure
out ways to stay in Cambridge before the rent doubles again.
