My great designer Tom Recchion is doing a concert on Saturday August 27 'Scores Composed for the Moving Image.'

Down below information and biography of sorts.

Tom Recchion screens early film and video solo works and collaborations with Janie Geiser, Branda Miller plus a silent film made with John Duncan. Recchion performs a live score for this rare screening.

Mark Wheaton, collaborator with the Shrimps, Johanna Went and Martin Kersels creates a live soundtrack for the unique indoor/outdoor environment of the Schindler House.

Tom Recchion is an artist/composer, starting in the 1970s as co-creator of the legendary Los Angeles Free Music Society (LAFMS). His early practice in low-tech sonic exploration presaged many exciting developments of the last quarter century: record manipulation, live tape loops, free improvisation, found and invented instruments, installation and more. He's collaborated with musicians David Toop, Christian Marclay, Mark Trayle, Oren Ambarchi, Keiji Haino, to name a few, and plays in the improvisational Extended Organ with Paul McCarthy, Joe Potts, Fredrik Nilsen and Mike Kelley. His recent
recordings include I Love My Organ and Soundtracks To A Color: Gold & Black. He has collaborated with filmmakers such as Janie Gieser and Kirby Dick, video artists Bruce and Norman Yonemoto and Branda Miller, and done work for theatre, dance and performance artists. He was awarded Best New Genre/ Uncatagorizable Artist by the LA Weekly 2004 Music Critics Poll and is currently working on a commission for The Kronos Quartet and an upcoming performance with ROVA Saxophone Quartet, Fred Frith, Nels Cline and Mark Trayle performing John Coltrane's Ascension.
