Sunday, April 22, 2012 2:00 PM to 7:00 PM Kraftwerk DJ Sessions with Greg Wilson
Celebrating Kraftwerk’s extensive influence on electronic music, MoMA PS1 invites distinguished DJs and producers to play tribute sets in the installation Kraftwerk – Retrospective 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8. On four consecutive weekends, musicians explore different facets of the group’s pioneering sound that influenced musical styles as diverse as Electro-Funk, Disco, New Wave, Techno, and Hip-Hop.
Greg Wilson is regarded as one of the most important figures on the UK dance scene where he was instrumental in introducing new electronic, post-disco records coming out of New York in the early 1980s. The sound, he dubbed ‘Electro-Funk’, was in return profoundly influenced by the German electro-pioneers Kraftwerk.
Allen Ginsberg reads "What would you do if you lost it?" at 92Y on February 26, 1973.
This recording kicks off the Dave Nolan Poetry Series, in honor of our beloved audio archivist who passed away in 2010. 92Y's vast archive of recordings dates back to the 1940s, and this month we'll be celebrating Dave's contribution to its preservation with new uploads to our Virtual Poetry Center, an on-going project which is in large part the product of Dave's belief that the merit of an archive is measured by the extent to which it is shared.http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif
Ginsberg read with his father Louis that night, but what sets this recording apart—and what Dave loved about it—is how Ginsberg is heckled throughout by Gregory Corso, who keeps interrupting the show from his seat in the audience. "Dave and I both appreciated the anarchic spirit of that reading, rare among recordings at the Unterberg Poetry Center for its breaking down of the fourth wall," remembers Thom Donovan, who himself contributed greatly to the utility of 92Y's archive by creating meta-data for many hundreds of hours of programming.

Eagerly awaiting the opening of Mission Chinese Food at 154 Orchard Street in Manhattan's Lower East Side. By the way, Bowien's buddy Ian Muntzert's got an uncanny resemblance in appearance and voice to Dax Shepard, no?
