for the Masters of the Universe (Ending with revolution and victory of the workers!) Stock Exchange. Seizure of the stock exchange by the proletariat, who turn it into a pantheon of work.” Unsettling, frantic and anti-sentimental, Hans Tammen’s “Third Eye Electric Band” – for whom machine oil is mother’s milk – fuse relentless polyrhythmic machinations with ethereal yet roughly sewn soundscapes, like a mix of Mwandishi, Bitches Brew and Sextant, with a hint of Magma. Dark, sometimes brooding ensemble passages mix and mingle with tightly woven drum-loops, and extended solo cadenzas build up to a mighty hymn to machine work, music of a metallic nightmare

South Street Seaport Museum Street of Ships: The Port and Its People

In celebration of the unparalleled restoration currently underway in the South Street Seaport Museum’s flagship, the museum announces its first post-Hurricane Sandy exhibition, Street of Ships: The Port and Its People beginning on March 17, 2016, open Wednesday – Sunday 11am-5pm, at the Museum’s main lobby, 12 Fulton Street.
Street of Ships: The Port and Its People showcases works of art and artifacts from the Museum’s permanent collections related to the 19th Century history of the Port of New York. The exhibition examines the decisive role played by the 19th Century Seaport at South Street – long known as the “Street of Ships” – in securing New York’s place as America’s largest city and its rise to become the world’s busiest port by the start of the 20th Century. The centerpiece of the exhibition examines the life and current restoration of the Museum’s 1885 full-rigged sailing cargo ship, Wavertree; an archetype of the impressive sailing ships that once called at South Street and made New York a hub of global trade. The exhibition lays the groundwork for Wavertree’s return to the Seaport in July 2016 after the completion of a 15-month, $13 million city-funded restoration, the largest of its type in more than a generation.
Location: Southstreet Seaport Museum, 12 Fulton st.
