    Joe Adamik and Diana Guerrero-Maciá: A TRANSFORMATION OF THINGS

    A series of special performances organized by Joe Adamik, in collaboration with his partner Guerrero-Maciá, will take place over the course of the exhibition. A Transformation of Things utilizes a pair of specially fabricated drum - using Guerrero-Maciá imagery - sets as the setting for rotating call and response duets performed by Adamik and special guest drummers. The performances will aurally activate Slow Blossoming by inducing a form of dialogue that, once rendered, would expound on the overall premise of the exhibition: to create a more optimistic, user-friendly and inclusive future world for all of us to partake in.

    Performance Dates and Times:
    November 11, 2016 (opening reception, 5 - 8PM): Spencer Tweedy and Kalyan Pathak at 5:45, 6:45 and 7:45
    December 17, 2016 (2 - 5PM): Guest performers TBD
    January 14, 2017 (closing event: 5 - 8PM): Mikel Avery and additional guest performer TBD
    Please check the website for performance updates and additional information.

    The easy swing of Joseph Adamik’s drumming sounds apropos whether he’s sitting in with free improvisers Extraordinary Popular Delusions, driving the shape-shifting pop ensemble Manishevitz, or giving the gloriously entropic Califone rhythmic coherence. He’s also a versatile multi-instrumentalist with a knack for extracting antique-sounding timbres from clarinets and keyboards. On his first solo LP, Super Low (Meno Mosso), Adamik adds two more credits to his CV: singer-songwriter and orchestrator. His high, yearning voice is a persuasive vehicle for songs about ice-bound sailors and a kid growing up with a mentally ill mom. And his deployment of sputtering drum machines, wood-grained string passages, and long, low brass tones generates both sonic intrigue and emotional complexity. Tonight Adamik will sing and play guitar and bass clarinet while leading a band that includes Marta Kallenberger and Andy Frickle on horns, Sam Wagster on guitar, and Califone vets Jim Becker on fiddle and piano, Ben Massarella on drums, and Gillian Lisee on bass. Acoustic vocal trio Big Sadie open. — Bill Meyer
