Composer Forum Series: Reg Bloor

Building 14, Room 14E-109 (Lewis Music Library)
160 MEMORIAL DR, Cambridge, MA 02139

NYC-based experimental guitarist Reg Bloor was legendary avant-garde composer Glenn Branca’s right hand for eighteen years, acting as concertmaster, collaborator, and instrumentalist.  Bloor continues to run Systems Neutralizers, the record label she and Branca founded together.  In addition to her work with Branca, she founded the bands Twitcher and The Paranoid Critical Revolution, and has worked with musicians David Bowie, Annie Clark/St. Vincent, Page Hamilton, Thurston Moore, Mike Watt, Ty Braxton, tomandandy, and visual artists Tony Ouriser, Lindo Sibio, and Olek, as well as on the soundtracks to the films The Mothman Prophesies and Terror Firmer.

She may currently be seen playing intensely dissonant solo pieces from her latest release, Sensory Irritation Chamber, and in a cataclysmically unhinged duo with Free Jazz drummer Marc Edwards.

Sponsored by Music & Theater Arts and the MIT Center for Art, Science, and Technology.

Please let us know if you require special accommodations in order to participate in this event.

The Glenn Branca Ensemble, led by Reg Bloor, may also be heard in concert on Friday, Sept 20, 8pm, in Kresge Auditorium.
