Holy Conch

July 14th, 2014

HOLY CONCH
Helga Fassonaki, Oaxaca 2014

‘…one does not speak in a shell, one listens’ – (Patti Smith from poem ‘Conch’)

This project was inspired by Akio Suzuki’s ‘Listening Point’ project, Oto-Date, which I had the opportunity to experience under Suzuki and Aki Onda’s instruction during Field Studies 2014 in London.   A group of us were given maps and told to find one or more ‘listening spots’ that we later shared with the group.   No recorders, no instruments – our tools were our eyes and ears.  Our ears like shells brought us closer to an audible landscape. Holy Conch was realized with a similar intention – through the minimal act of listening allow the senses and mind to peel wide open.   Holy Conch was specifically realized while doing a residency in Oaxaca, Mexico.  Upon arrival to Mexico, I was quickly roused by the many different sights and sounds coming from every direction – It was sensory overload times 100.  I couldn’t focus on my intended project. Instead I wanted to be out of my studio and fully immersed in the cityscape.

After giving into the vibrant distractions, I decided to use churches as my listening spaces to somewhat escape the loudness – from bands to rockets to dance classes to kids shouting to drum circles to the iconic gas truck that drives with a jingle much like an ice cream truck to a man yelling ‘aqua’ every hour everyday, etc.  In contrast, I thought churches could act as spaces for inner-reflection – a solo dwelling place ideal for listening.  I located 18 churches in the Central Oaxaca area and for the remaining duration of my residency I visited a few a day.  Using each of these resonating chambers in essence as my work studio, I sat or stood underneath the dome ceilings or walked around the canals for as long as I felt like being there.  I often returned to the same church but never quite had the same experience twice.  These churches were never actually without sound.  With their doors open and much noise bleeding through, the churches were like the holy filters of society.  Sounds reflected, echoed, resonated, and transformed – yet there was silence in the form of stillness as separation from the outside world itself acted like a filter.  But with the sound of church bells came a subtle reminder of the hierarchical shape present within – a cone shaped golden spiral one can both listen through and hide within.

With a map and my notes, I invite visitors to have their own listening experience of Holy Conch, Oaxaca.

Holy Conch post live performance &  listening environment
June 30th, 2014
flyer

I created a listening environment in which I improvised live with segments of recordings I made in the different Churches – a byproduct to share with an intimate audience.  What fascinated me with the churches in Oaxaca was the underlying Pagan beliefs that were practiced before the Spanish arrived bringing over the Catholic religion (around 1521).  Many Catholic churches were built right over Pagan shrines or sacred places. The chosen spots revealed the Pagans’ close relationship with nature and land.

In my alter creation I included raw materials symbolic of a kind of Pagan ritual integrated with a Baroque gold backdrop, an essence of my sensory experiences during holy conch.  The creation of this new listening environment appeared to have meditative effects on the audience.

yek koo + Caitlin Mitchell – live @ Human Resources gallery 9-21-12

September 25th, 2012

Documentation (excerpt) of live performance collaboration between yek koo and Caitlin Mitchell. The actual performance was 15 minutes long and featured a radical symbiotic relationship between drum and guitar sounds as the drumming vibrations were picked up by the guitar and further layered and distorted, building up till the projected video showing white noise/light for 12 minutes suddenly became a fire with a burning photo of Mitt Romney.

Trapdoor Fucking Exit – April 20 – 22, 2012

April 7th, 2012

Emerald Cocoon presents Trapdoor Fucking Exit, a series of performances taking place inside Helga Fassonaki’s
Installation, Touching Them Touching Me – A Love Song for the Dead C, at Human Resources gallery April 20 – 22, 2012.
$10 each night or $20 for all three nights!
Human Resources: 410 Cottage Home St in Chinatown, 90012

Friday April 20th, 7PM

TOM CARTER – Pete Swanson once described him to me as a ‘wizard’ and I think he might be right. His last solo set in LA was one of the most life-affirming demonstrations of the term ‘slow-burn’ that I have ever seen. And you weren’t there. Please use this opportunity to correct yourself.

BRIAN CROOK (NZ) – guitarist/vocalist from The Renderers/The Terminals/Flies Inside The Sun/The Max Block/Scorched Earth Policy etc etc etc. If these names mean nothing to you then you may as well stay at home. Hand down New Zealands best guitarist. Ask anyone.

GLANDS OF EXTERNAL SECRETION – reclusive legends Barbara Manning and Seymour Glass in their first LA performance (3rd performance in 18 years!). In 2003 they released a ‘no instruments’ cover of ‘Tubular Bells’. We have no idea what is going to happen.

QUEEN VICTORIA – “I’m basically only interested in acoustic noise now” – Nick Malkin aka Queen Victoria

YEK KOO – Helga will perform the whole of her new ‘Love Song for the Dead C’ LP in it’s entirety for the first time.

* plus a performance in absentia by ADAM WILLETTS (NZ) – Adam delivers a mailed-in dose of his non-denominational acid electronics from Christchurch.

Saturday April 21st, 7PM

CHARALAMBIDES – Forget obscure psych-folk reissue ‘gems’ hitting the shelves daily, you don’t have to look back to the pre-corporate takeover era to find modern psychedelic music of rare beauty. Tom and Christina Carter are perhaps the greatest living practitioners of the form in America. Having been through various configurations and conceptual approaches from avant-folk, through minimalist improvisation right out the other side into folk-form again over a period of 21 years they have consistently chosen the path less trodden, leaving behind them a body of work as monumental as that of Keiji Haino or The Dead C. Don’t get left behind in the wake of cheap party music and illusionary careerist cash dreams: there are visionaries in our midst.

500 MG – Michael Gibbons of psych warriors Bardo Pond performs in his 500mg guise for the first time in LA. Twisting/burning psilocybe mantras.

PURPLE PILGRIMS (NZ) – Sister duo from Christchurch, fog shrouded choral vox coated with distant reverb guitar. Immersive.

PETER KOLOVOS – Thin Wrist Recordings proprietor plays electric guitar like fireworks built out of stained glass.

GABIE STRONG – Local artist and bassist of Lady Noise.  No-one knows what to expect – bass?

UN CIEGO – Plans to one day release something that isn’t a lathe-cut. Perhaps a one sided c20 in an edition of 5?

Sunday April 22nd, 6PM

MARYROSE CROOK (NZ) – Of The Renderers/The Max Block/Above Ground (whose sole cassette was recently reissued by Siltbreeze). Aching loose country psych ballads from one of the godmothers of the NZ underground.

LA LAKERS (NZ) – New Zealand facsimile of LA basketball team slam dunks improvised tape compositions.

METAL ROUGE – First LA show in a few months and probably the last for a few more. New material. Less interested than ever in ‘entertaining’ you.

DEREK ROGERS – Recent Texas transplant with a million tapes on a million labels everywhere. Laminal.

BAILOUTS – First performance from new duo unit made up of members of The Faraday Trippers and Shelter Death. Something’s brewing in the OC and it’s not just kopi luwak.

*plus a non-appearance performance by BILL ORCUTT – Bill unfortunately couldn’t be with us in person because he’s on tour, BUT he did give us an exclusive new work to premiere. New cubist blues, with no interest in your opinion.
