Nice live recordings in their great studio and some nice photos!
“Most exciting about this week’s Key Session: not only did Bardo Pond perform recent selections from Peace on Venus (“Kali Yuma Blues,” “Taste”) and a brilliant track from their self-titled 2010 record called “Await The Star (The Stars Behind)”…they also debuted two unreleased songs. Stream the session below, drift away on the fuzztone waves of “Red Curtains” and thrill to the krautrock crescendo of “untitled.””

Drone Music for non-drone’s
From Flipped out Records.com:
“The Vapour Theories radiate into the world, and make themselves evident in various ways according to the substance in which they manifest. Therefore they manifest tone in a threefold manner; by instinct, as animal sound, and in advanced Spiritual tones. The Vapours which they derive from the physical and animal elements are temporal; that which they derive from the Spirit is eternal. Vapours are the Father of Wisdom, and the means to gain all Wisdom is from Vapours. A slight study of the science of sound soon makes us familiar with the fact that sound is vibration and that different sounds will mold sand or other light materials into figures of varying form. The Vapour Theories have learned at the Fountain of Vapours to play the Song Of Vapours, which cradles into existence whatever such a musician desires.”
Many of the concepts, philosophies, and even extended saxophone techniques embraced by Bhob Rainey are ubiquitous in the world of free music. However, to call Bhob a free player, would marginalize the uniqueness of his sound-based concept.
I’ve Known Dan Cohoon for a long time. An Excellent Photographer and noise conjurer. His approach to guitar is extremely non-traditional in that he doesn’t play the guitar, so much as he dismantles it…
Can’t wait to see yous!

We are psyched and honored to do this. Please make it…
ICA@50 allowed us to explore, confirm, amend, exorcise, and most importantly, celebrate the past fifty years. A highly personal experience for everyone involved—staff, artists, members, donors, and audience—the anniversary project has been an opportunity to remember and to reminisce.
We would be remiss to close the celebration without exploring the past performances of Bardo Pond. Casually known as ICA’s “house band” since the 1990s, Bardo Pond has been entwined in the story of this institution.
There have been many memorable performances. They played the opening of the 1996 exhibition You Talkin’ To Me?and recorded a 7” single for the catalogue; they performed for 2 ½ hours accompanying Andy Warhol’s film Sleep(1963) in conjunction with The Big Nothing in 2004; they accompanied artist Rodney Graham in concert at World Café Live for his 2005 ICA retrospective; and performed at the request of Trisha Donnelly for her 2008 show.
In addition to their expansive work as musicians and visual artists, members have been involved with the museum in various capacities over the years, from working as preparators to exhibiting their own work at ICA.
The closing party will feature Bardo Pond with guest DJ LIGHTHEAT. Artist Jeremiah Misfeldt will lift the curse that he cast upon ICA during The Big Nothing Cabaret in 2004. Paul Swenbeck, ICA’s Chief Preparator, launches the zine he produced in conjunction with Woe Be Gone, a mural that celebrates Margaret Kilgallen’s life and last work, which was presented as part of ICA’s 2001 exhibition East Meets West: “Folk” and Fantasy from the Coasts.
Lil’ Pop Shop popsicles, a variety of snacks, and beer will fuel the celebration, to be held (weather permitting) on ICA’s terrace.
2pm—Kick-off with music by DJ LIGHT HEAT
3pm—Jeremiah Misfeldt lifts his ten-year curse on ICA
4pm—DJ LIGHT HEAT
5pm—On to the next fifty!
