Groupshow in action

Fine curators that they are, the folks behind the Unsound Festival have an event that’s kind even to the emptiest of wallets. At noon on Saturday, February 6th, the experimental German trio Groupshow (known separately as Jan Jelinek, Andrew Pekler and Hanno Leichtmann) will perform an 8 hour long improvised piece to accompany Andy Warhol’s film, “Empire.” The event takes place at Le Poisson Rouge (158 Bleecker St.) and is completely free.

For a hint as to what you can expect from this massive undertaking, check out “Pet Hair Magnet,” generously made available by Groupshow. Not entirely removed from the sonic experiments of LWE’s last giveaway from nsi., the track is a noisy, free-spirited affair with hurried drum machine rhythms keeping pace behind eager synth squeals. Imagine the tribal rituals a closet full of analog synth gear holds when the lights go out and you’re about halfway there. With an 8 hour long palate on which to paint, this is surely only one facet of the Groupshow experience. But if you like your electronic music wild, woolly and appearing alongside Warhol’s work, make sure to stop by Le Poisson Rouge on February 6th.
