15 January 2024, 17:00
Join us at ARU for a talk presented by David Grubbs: “Three Experiments in Music Writing”, taking place on Monday 15 January from 5pm-6.30pm, in LAB 107 (entrance on Broad Street, just off East Road).
David is the author of the trilogy of book-length prose poems Good night the pleasure was ours, The Voice in the Headphones, and Now that the audience is assembled (Duke University Press). A central figure in the development of avant-garde rock music since the 1990s, Grubbs was a key member of the groups Gastr del Sol, Bastro, and Squirrel Bait.
His collaboration with Jim O’Rourke in Gastr del Sol in essence invented the concept of post-rock. He has since released fourteen solo albums and appeared on more than 200 releases. He has performed with Tony Conrad, Pauline Oliveros, Luc Ferrari, Will Oldham, Loren Connors, Royal Trux, the Red Krayola, and many others.
Following the talk, David will perform a concert at the Blue Moon in Cambridge (Norfolk Street).
