Event Details

Composer Mark Mantel’s ‘Machine Gun’ series continues it’s evolution with a new installation on Thursday, October 25th, at 7:30 PM. This installation will be at The Translator Lab, 415 E. Menomonee Street in Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward. The piece is an on-going dialogue about our war based economy and society, and why it must cease to be so. The growing use of drones as a tool of destruction and the drone as a musical analog are explored in this installation, which is presented as a monologue with film, pre-recorded audio, and a chamber ensemble. Filmmaker and musician Scott Johnson will be joined by musicians Lou Cucunato, Stas Venglevski, Janet Schiff, Charlie Short, Steven White, Aaron Gardner, Jason Wietlispach, and other special guests. Veterans associated with Dry Hootch Milwaukee will have works on display this evening as well. Please see the website as more details become available.

Past collaborators have been visual artist Valerie J. Christell, videographers Melissa Musante and Scott Johnson, spoken word artists Elvis Thao and Victor DeLorenzo, and the music has ranged from fully improvisatory, to structural improvisation, and fully scored pieces.

This work also pays tribute to the Daniel Pearl Foundation’s World Music Days, and will be included in it’s month long celebration. For many years, the composer has organized a number of concerts and events that mirror the legacy of Daniel Pearl and support the work of the Daniel Pearl Foundation.

Please come a little early for ambient sounds, dialogue, meet the artists, and refreshments. There will be a suggested donation of $7.
