Sunday at STEIM by John Ferguson
"Clinical Jazz" is an eclectic and illogical compilation.
Range: ....from "clinically" traditional jazz directions....... up to unclassable and clinically indefinable "jazz" forms.
John Ferguson is an electronic musician. His work is inspired by notions of instability, and focuses on tactile approaches to the live manipulation of audio/visual materials. Predicated on listening and real-time(re)negotiation, his combinations of hacked electronics, wireless gaming controllers and custom software/mechanical systems are frequently loud and exuberant. But the resistance inherent within these instrumental ecologies significantly affects the compositional process, raising issues of causality, agency and legibility, whilst foregrounding ambiguity as an alternative to functionalism in interface design.
