HCMF14 Thurston Moore
A founding member of noise rock legends Sonic Youth and a free improviser in his own right, Thurston Moore has spent the last 30 years threading together a disparate network of guitar music. His tenure on the instrument is evident in this concert, which includes a solo performance of Composer in Residence Christian Marclay’s Wind-up Guitar, a customised acoustic instrument which Marclay has fitted with 12 music box mechanisms, along with a tribute to late avant-garde guitarist Glenn Branca. A pivotal figure in the New York no wave scene of the 70s and 80s, Branca is famous for providing guitar music with a template for modern classical composition in The Ascension. In this fitting homage, Moore brings his influence full circle.
