Alloy Orchestra in town

DC - here's your chance to see Alloy Orchestra with Roger Mission of Birdsongs Miller at the National Art Gallery's Dada exhibition - yeah, now you have an excuse to see DuChamp's urinal or whatever...

Dada Cinema and Music with Alloy Orchestra
March 11 at 4:30 p.m.
March 12 at 6:30 p.m.
The Alloy Orchestra's percussive style -- generated by means of drums, hubcaps, truck springs, bicycle wheels, and other objets trouvés -- is at ease with the Dada aesthetic. This second of two musical events featuring Dada cinema will showcase the Alloy Orchestra's scores for a selection of short films. Their program of works by Hans Richter, Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray, Viking Eggeling, and Fernand Léger highlights many classics of the Dada movie canon. (approximately 80 mins.) Discussion with the orchestra members will follow.
