Always check for subway service change: (& choose New York City Transit)

Use MTA's Tripplanner online site. It reflects all the service changes on subways & busses and suggests you the best roules

MTA service change on 4/22/12:

F: Jamaica-bound trains run via the A-line from Jay St-MetroTech to W 4 St
* It means that F-users from E.Village/LES/Chinatown will have NO problem coming down to Munch Room. However, on the way back home, you may want to take D train from Union St (that will make a local stop late night) to Grand St station.

Otherwise, there won't be much problem this weekend!:)

In any case, the close train stations to Munch Room is F/G: Caroll St or 4th Ave-9th St stations, or R: Union St station.

Share on 4/22/12

Two featured guest sets:

Infernal Machines (Lars Graugaard & Hans Tammen):

“These talking machines are going to ruin the artistic development of music in this country. When I was a boy … in front of every house in the summer evenings you would find young people together singing the songs of the day or the old songs. Today you hear these infernal machines going night and day. We will not have a vocal cord left.” (John Phillip Sousa, testifying before the US Congress 1906).

Lars Graugaard -
“Lars Graugaard is active in a variety of musical areas. He has a strong academic background with a degree in flute performance and a PhD in interactive music. His laptop music is characterized by an often very strong grounding in rhythms, combined with at times quite abstract sound-worlds. Performances are always in realtime with procedures written into custom computer code for algorithmic rendering of the basic musical ideas and sectional development. Many if these ideas come from research into aspects of music that account for generally perceived musical expression and emotion. Sometimes performances are realtime improvisations with instrumental performers skilled in free improvisation, and the richness of these activities provides a continuous development in research and theory and their application in composition, performance and programming."

Hans Tammen -
Hans Tammen creates sounds that have been described as an alien world of bizarre textures and a journey through the land of unending sonic operations. He produces rapid-fire juxtapositions of radically contrastive and fascinating noises, with micropolyphonic timbres and textures, aggressive sonic eruptions, but also quiet pulses and barely audible sounds – through means of his “Endangered Guitar” and interactive software programming, by working with the room itself, and, as a critic observed, with his “…fingers stuck in a high voltage outlet”. Signal To Noise called his works “…a killer tour de force of post-everything guitar damage”, All Music Guide recommended him: “…clearly one of the best experimental guitarists to come forward during the 1990s.”
