Masochism is the new black

Los Angeleno experimental artist Adam Overton is known for facilitating intimate, artist-led experiences. Overton is co-founder of the Experimental Meditation Center of Los Angeles and ghostwriter for Guru Rugu’s Experimental Meditation Hour on KCHUNG Radio 1630 AM. On Monday, May 27, Spirit Abuse (1103 Fourth Street NW) hosts Overton and seer/provocateur Matador Oven’s manifesto/lecture “Ripe for Embarrassment: For a New Musical Masochism,” which proposes “a new paradigm in composer/performer relations, wherein the composer is a masochist who uses score-based Cageian indeterminacy in hopes of being humiliated by a willing performer.” It sounds pretty heady, and it probably is, but the post-lecture concert will undoubtedly transcend intellectual boundaries. This avant event kicks off at 7 p.m., and admission is free, but donations are welcomed.
