BRB/Total Id Pigs

BRB/Total Id Pigs

After Ian’s performance, I’ll be playing crackly, sparkly sonic drone sounds.bass guitar.noise-in-a-box.shoedaze.

“Ian Swanson’s one night site-specific performance, BRB/Total Id Pigs, explores the relationship between ordinary objects and the ideas, people, places and events attached to them. Borrowing elements of various ritual paradigms, the performance is designed to remind us how commerce and ephemera shape our reality, asking us to consider how we define ourselves, and how history defines us.”

nospectacle performed at Movement: Detroit’s Electronic Music Festival. Photos and videos have begun trickling in…

Flash forward: Walter Wasacz and I co-curated THE ENRAGED WILL INHERIT THE EARTH at Public Pool and it has since come to an end.

We’re making room for Tim Hailey’s “Star in the Ghetto.”

I’ve been trying to wrap my head around the idea of what HamtramckArt.com should be. I definitely need people to submit content. It needs to be supported by the local artists and followers or else the whole concept is rubbish. I think it’s looking good, though. Check it out for yourself and take a peek at the next show at 2739 Edwin.

Biking as much as I can… 2 of my buddies got hurt biking so I’m sad about that. That reminds me. I just got purchased HAMTRAMCKBIKES.COM ! ! ! 

Once that site gets up and running, we can share resources and schedule bike rides. You can post sweet pictures of your ride!

I want to make people more aware of bicycle culture & etiquette. It’s so important in this 2.2 sq mile town. We’ve got people riding the wrong way in the street with no helmets at night. 

How can there be no bike shop in Hamtramck? The shame! I have seen more bikes this year than ever before. Teenager BMX gangs. Grocery shoppers. Artsy commuters. My friend Jon has custom built a seat for his boy on the front of his bike. Pretty righteous! 

More soon.

I will be providing live sounds this Saturday, June 18 at Public Pool for a special event called HULLAB, part of the show I co-curated with Walter Wasacz entitled “THE ENRAGED WILL INHERIT THE EARTH. In the show, I also have some assemblage work “I AM A WALLET” and “DEATH, ENVY, LOVE, FAME” and “BANKING, VIOLENCE AND THE INNER LIFE TODAY.” 

Ryan Standfest has work in the show called “GOT DAMN LOVE SONG IN MY HEAD (CANT GET IT OUT BY GOLLY) to which I have provided sound work.
