The piece premiered at Incubator Arts Project in 2011\, with subsequent performances in London and Birmingham in 2013. \nOriginally composed in recorded form over five years\, Robert Ashley’s Automatic Writing is the result of the composer’s fascination with involuntary speech. Ashley said\, “I went towards the idea of sounds having a kind of magical function – of being able to actually conjure characters. It seemed to me that in a sort of psycho-physical sense sounds can actually make you see things\, can give you images that are quite specific.” He recorded and analyzed the repeated lines of his own mantra\, extracting four musical characters and creating an early form of ambient music that is incredibly evocative. \nOn a stage strewn with television monitors\, video cameras\, and dim pools of slowly shifting light\, Object Collection evokes the four characters – or parts –while crafting an environment that aims to heighten the enigma and melancholic mood of the original. Performers inhabit four disparate islands\, contributing to a dense sound environment. The recording\, which never had a score for performance\, is treated as a composition that can be interpreted instead of recreated: Genders and languages get switched up\, electronics are used over analog\, and objects and scenic elements are introduced to give the work a visual dynamic. The result is a mirage-like\, transient and vibrant environment\, conducive to listening to the music\, as well as enriching it. \n  \nAbout the artists: \nRobert Ashley (1930-2014) is particularly known for his work in new forms of opera. In Ann Arbor in the 1960s\, Ashley organized the ONCE Festival and directed the legendary ONCE Group\, with whom he developed his first operas. Throughout the 1970s\, he directed the Center for Contemporary Music at Mills College and toured with the Sonic Arts Union. He produced and directed Music with Roots in the Aether\, a 14-hour television opera/documentary about the work and ideas of seven American composers. His opera for television\, Perfect Lives\, is widely considered the precursor of “music-television.” Stage versions of Perfect Lives\, Atalanta (Acts of God)\, Improvement (Don Leaves Linda)\, Foreign Experiences\, eL/Aficionado and Now Eleanor’s Idea toured throughout the US and Canada\, Europe and Asia during the 1980s and 90s. Dust\, followed by Celestial Excursions and The Old Man Lives in Concrete toured from 1999-2012. He finished his last two operas (Crash and Quicksand) in 2013. Crash was presented as part of the 2014 Whitney Biennial; the Kitchen presented Quicksand in early 2016. www.robertashley.org \nKara Feely is a writer\, director\, designer\, and performer for experimental theater and interdisciplinary performance. Her work draws inspiration from experimental writing and music composition strategies\, and combines a variety of materials\, from found text fragments and landscapes of objects\, to recorded interviews and radio broadcasts. Kara has been a guest artist at Arhus University in Denmark\, Ca Foscari University of Venice\, Wesleyan University\, and Kenyon College. Additionally\, her texts have been published in Antennae\, a journal of experimental writing and performance\, PLAY A JOURNAL OF PLAYS\, Musiktexte\, and the Japanese imprint futow. \nTravis Just is a composer based in Brooklyn\, NY. His work often uses text\, objects\, and gesture in addition to instruments\, voice\, and electronics. He has composed six operas: Problem Radical(s) (2009)\, Innova (2011) and NO HOTEL (2013)\, cheap&easy OCTOBER (2015)\, It’s All True (2016)\, and You Are Under Our Space Control (2019). His writings on music and art have appeared in John Zorn’s Arcana series\, MusikTexte\, the journal Tempo (Cambridge\, UK)\, and the Experimental Music Yearbook. \nObject Collection was founded in 2004 by writer/director Kara Feely and composer/musician Travis Just. Based in Brooklyn\, the group operates within the intersecting practices of performance\, experimental music and theater. They are concerned with simultaneity\, complexity\, and radicality\, combining dense layers of text\, notation\, objects and processes. Object Collection work to give audiences unconventional viewing experiences through their merging of theatricality and pedestrian activity\, and their works upset habitual notions of time\, pace\, progression and virtuosity. They value accumulation above cohesion. www.objectcollection.us \n  \n URL:https://www.bricktheater.com/event/automatic-writing/2020-05-24/ LOCATION:Brick Theater\, 579 Metropolitan Ave\, Brooklyn\, 11211\, United States ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://www.bricktheater.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/OC-pref1_Automatic-Writing-scaled.jpg END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/New_York:20200523T200000 DTEND;TZID=America/New_York:20200523T200000 DTSTAMP:20200410T000516 CREATED:20200306T005159Z LAST-MODIFIED:20200307T151832Z UID:577-1590264000-1590264000@www.bricktheater.com SUMMARY:Automatic Writing DESCRIPTION:Automatic Writing \nObject Collection presents a staged adaptation of Robert Ashley’s seminal 1979 composition \nMay 21-23 8pm\nMay 24 5 pm \n  \nComposed by Robert Ashley\nAdapted by Travis Just and Kara Feely\nDirected and Designed by Kara Feely\nFulya Peker and Travis Just (voice)\nAaron Meicht (vocal processing)\nJohn Hastings (guitar)\nKara Feely (actions)\nPaula Matthusen (programming/electronics) \nThe Brooklyn-based performance group Object Collection\, acclaimed for its invigorating blend of music and theater\, presents its live\, staged adaptation of Robert Ashley’s seminal studio composition\, Automatic Writing (1979).

Kinnan\, who grew up worshiping the movie and its iconic cast of characters\, plays all of them. Tall\, slender\, and lithe\, Kinnan uses his dancer-like physique and long\, elegant limbs to completely immerse himself into each character. \nOver the course of roughly one hour — no\, the performance (thankfully) doesn’t share the same run time as the film — Kinnan expertly reenacts Titanic’s most memorable moments. While he excels at physical comedy and uncanny impressions\, it’s Kinnan’s vocal talents (he replicates the exact accent and inflection of each character) that are most impressive to behold. \nAnd though Titanic’s tragic ending is no surprise\, Kinnan’s musical finale is sure to sweep any audience off its feet.

Michael\, day of\, created a one-person 15-minute abridged version of James Cameron’s Titanic. \nNever Let Go was born years later in Times Square when he was having dinner on a charming date and that date said – I wanna produce and develop this show with you. We had just elected a new President and there was nothing to lose. That date made this boy’s fanatical dreams a reality in 2017 at the Drama Book Shop. \n6 months later\, while making mediocre cappuccinos at a cafe that no longer exists\, Michael was introduced to Theresa Buchheister through his landlord. Theresa did something unthinkable in an artists’ life. She said yes to mounting the show\, sight unseen. \nTwo sold-out runs at Vital Joint in East Williamsburg later\, Never Let Go makes its most ambitious debut at the Brick for two weeks. Michael would appreciate water at curtain call. \nMichael’s Bio:\nAs a person who has struggled with labels since first being called “Giraffe Boy”\, Michael prefers you simply refer to him as a Titanic Fan.
