with Alan Licht, Cory Arcangel and Howie Chen
[European premiere]

Common to the artistic paths of the elements that constitute the trio Title TK – Alan Licht, Cory Arcangel and Howie Chen –  we find the exploration of a conceptual side as well as a music instrument: the guitar.

Alan Licht is a guitarist who has been commissioned to work with leading musicians, such as Lee Ranaldo and Kim Gordon (of Sonic Youth) or Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy. At the same time, he has developed an important career within a theoretical and historical research, both about individual musicians such as Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy as dealing with vaster fields such as Sound Art about which Licht published one on the most important books in recent years.

Based in New York, Howie Chen, has developed a distinguished work exploring collective art practice, namely with the New Humans, and curatorial and research work, as it is the case with the project Dispatch.

Arcangel is a renowned young American artist known for his use of media such as videogames and the internet, resorting to infiltration and hacker strategies. However, his formal training was as a classical guitarist and his work is increasingly moving towards sound both experimental and connected to pop culture.

Title TK describe themselves as a banter-prone band, a cross between the poet David Antin and the parody band Spinal Tap. In their unorthodox concerts they subvert the canons of live music presentation taking to the stage other ways in which music inhabits our present culture. Their performances lie between the reflection and the mirror of the profound roots of music into our subjectivity, society and economy. Their debut album, "Rock$”, was released in October 2013.

This event is part of the cycle NEW PERSPECTIVES. Organized by the Serralves Museum, this new program presents conferences, performance projects and cinema with the participation of influential artists and thinkers who help redefine the terrain of art and its reception.
