Zine Of The Month @ Booklyn – Opening 11/2


Zine Of The Month
November 2- December 8, 2013
Booklyn Artists Alliance, 37 Greenpoint Ave, 4FL. Brooklyn, 11222

Zine Of The Month is a project started in 2009 that releases limited-edition and handmade artist zines, featuring collaborations between printer and publisher Mark Price and a plethora of Philadelphia and New York based artists. Each monthly publication is hand-printed and bound by Price at Space 1026, a long standing artist co-op and exhibition space in the Chinatown neighborhood of Philadelphia. Zine Of The Month has involved many artists who work and who keep studios at Space 1026. The monthly releases are offered through a yearly subscription and feature varying reproduction and binding techniques including screen printing and photocopying to translate the artists’ work to the intimate and tactile medium of ‘zines.

Booklyn will host a retrospective exhibition with a library of past releases on view, coupled with print ephemera from the project, and a gallery of original works by artists who have participated in the project including Beth Brandon, Jason Hsu, Hilary Price, Abbey L Sarver, Max Seckel, Lance Simmons, Miriam Singer, Jason Rusnock, and James Ulmer.

ZINE OF THE MONTH is the nineteenth in a series of group exhibitions dedicated to providing self-publishing artists, who generally share their work through printed matter and other ephemeral media, with a platform for exhibition, experimentation and exploration outside of the printed format. This exhibition is made possible in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and additionally in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.

Cars Will Burn “…Check Please.”


“Come on, let’s pop the champagne, this one’s for the life
Did everything you could, be here for the night
Man it feels good, everything is right
Energy is strong enough to brighten up city lights
My whole team winning, no vision of quitting
I rather say I did than let them buzzards say I didn’t
Let ‘em talk about it mane, I’m already living
I risk my life to try everyday to go and get it”

SLOW FM right now… TUESDAY until 10pm


SLOW FM is a temporary 12-hour pirate radio and online webcasted microstation dedicated to SLOW music, broadcasted live September 24, 2013 10am-10pm EST and existing as an online archive afterward. SLOW FM will be broadcast live from Christchurch Neighborhood House at 20 N. American Street, 4th floor. Philadelphia, PA 19106. Visitors are welcome to visit the station and performance hall. Music will be DJed and performed live throughout the broadcast.

Beginning in the mid 80s, the slow food movement began in Italy and over time grew a rabid following worldwide that continues to this day. Starting in the early 90s, a subgenre of southern hip hop called screw was formed, where vinyl albums were played and re-recorded 20-30% slower, sometimes with added beats, introductions and other effects. This subgenre bubbled beneath the surface for over a decade, and took off in the mid-2000s as the phenomenon of chopped and screwed music was applied to hip hop mixtapes. Increasingly in the past 5 years, experimental musicians have begun to mine this technique to combine hip hop, electronic, ambient/noise and other experimental music. SLOW FM has commissioned artists internationally to create new slowed-down compositions as well as will broadcast the full gamut of slow music from ambient, dub, drone, contemporary classical, dance music, hip hop and cross-genre music. Artists included: Tim Hecker, Lawrence English, Aaron Roche, Greg Fox, Cars Will Burn, Yung Pharoah, Thin Gaze, Selfies, Lil ‘Merica, Ulalume, Chattr, Eartheater, and Indridi Ingolffson. Additional works will be DJed live and slow by Fade Sunshine and Jacob Herschel. The entire broadcast will be considered a 12-hour slow music performance. Curator/DJ/Selector: Lee Tusman. Funded by Pew Center For Arts and Heritage: New Spaces / New Formats.

Hello! Galtta has a new cassette! And, for those of you who can’t understand why anyone would buy a cassette, it is also digital on itunes, amazon, and other places too.

GET THE DOWNLOAD (or listen for free)

In the last days of Summer, 2012, while slowly sipping on ice cold, never ending seltzer, Mark Price and David Lackner engineered a live noise, ambient, jazz session in a nuclear polluted Brooklyn apartment. Sampling Lackner’s smooth sax playing on the fly, Price decays, delays, distorts, and mixes the samples into chords. Sometimes static. Sometimes over a relentless mix of electronic drums.

The tapes were then sent to John Swana’s studio in Philadelphia, where he added his electronic valve instrument and his baritone marching horn. Providing a virtuosic jazz element and a greater sound variety, “Smooth End Of Summer” was ready to be mixed. Two months later, during the mixing session, Lackner and Price had an unofficial eating competition at an indian buffet in Queens, NY. Price won. Lackner threw it all up, and went back to the studio, where they finished “Smooth End Of Summer” . CAUTION: THIS ONE HAS LOTS OF BASS!
