FLANDREW FLEISENBERG (Percussion)
SOLO SUMMER TOUR
Fleisenberg is a player of objects. Drums only fall peripherally into his spectrum, while he is mostly fascinated in coaxing out the inherent material characters of “mundane things”. These wide manipulations of external implements draw an aural architecture within the performance space as the embodied performer moves within it. Fleisenberg’s movement actions in combination with his material conjuring, creates a discourse inside of a constantly breathing tactile space.
for video footage and additional information:
Flandrew Fleisenberg plays percussion on an ever changing assortment of ephemera and modified drum parts coaxing texture and tone both familiar and bizarre. Attentive to room resonance, ambience and collaborator, Fleisenberg playfully utilizes sound and presence to explore space, time, and relationships. A graduate of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts (Boston) with a focus in conceptual art, he is musically self-taught and has developed a cadre of idiosyncratic techniques that are all his own. Flandrew has been involved in the improvised and creative music community since 2001 performing solo, in ad-hoc improv groupings, and in set projects. A recent migrant to Philadelphia, Fleisenberg is an active producer and advocate of Free Improvisation music and dance across the region.
Recent and favored implements:
Cannon ball, 10″ ball chain, catering platters, doors, loose cymbals, sticky sticks, soup pans, glass window, steel spring, floors, walls, air, sand, paper, rope, ping ping balls, a couple glasses of wine, some luck, and good fortune.
“Marcel Duchamp: funny phony. Flandrew Fleisenberg: Einstein of drums.”
– Gordon Marshall, poet laureate of the Boston improv scene

Zarzutzki is probably making something awkward right now, pushing some ankle out of a shoe, or riding a styrofoam cup around a needle. He’ll be joined in some capacity by equally awkward and startling compatriots in non-making.
Personal Injury Lawyer is the experimental music project of Zachary Mark. He has played numerous times all over Chicago in Battleship and also runs the cassette label Car Wash Tapes. His work explores sounds both natural and synthetic, yet eternally guttural and raw.
