The Scorpion Decides is a PHX/AZ based group that performs pulse based music centered around breakbeat science and electronically modified sounds. For this performance, the group will be in a trio format, debuting a new set of Hubbard material.

P/L/D is a group of LA stalwarts who have played together in multiple incarnation over the years. You know and love the fractal percussion world of Brad Dutz, the looped, sometimes noisy lower regions of Steuart Liebig, and the wizardry of Wayne Peet. Come in, my friends, come in and enjoy.

Double Triangle is the double trio lineup of The Scorpion Decides plus three of Hubbards favorite LA based musicians. The group performs broad form music with multiple eddies of interaction, wide ranging sound worlds and grid like repetitious percussion.

Gallery Lara + Cafemode proudly present “Homing Pigeon – Edition 2 「伝書鳩」Tokyo ” group photo exhibit by local and international artists

Before Internet and email there were homing pigeons. These pigeons carried messages only one way, to their home. By placing their food at one location and their home at another location, pigeons learned to fly back and forth up to twice a day reliably becoming an important means of communication.

The importance of homing pigeons in the centuries before electronic communications, such as the telegraph and telephone, is seldom recognized. Pigeons carried photographic negatives, documents of breaking news and even medication between hospitals countries apart.
As our means of communication developed into the present hyper-network, today’s homing pigeons have retired from messengers and now trained as racing pigeons. It is thought that racing pigeons rely on the Earth’s magnetic field to find their way home. Some evidence has surfaced indicating that mobile phone towers may be interrupting the birds navigation although no published research has investigated this theory.

The theme of this photography exhibit is an observation of the value of messaging; the sending, the expectations and the challenge of not expecting any return.

いまのようにインターネットやemailが発達する以前、伝書鳩(ハト)は重要な通信手段だった。小さく巻いた写真や書類を足に付けた伝書鳩は世界のニュースを伝えていたが、現代ではレース鳩としての役割だけが残った。

レースに参加した鳩の、鳩舎に帰ってくる羽数を帰還率という。その帰還率が全体的に年々悪くなっており、レースによっては全滅するレースも発生しているという。その原因は近年の通信・放送網の拡大で、基地局や携帯の電磁波が多くなり、鳩の方向感覚を狂わせているからだという説もある。

いまは、連絡の手段が豊富で容易なだけに、返信をもらうことが当たり前のような風潮だが、この充実した通信手段が狂ったらどうなるのだろう。
もう少しだけ、送る相手への気持ちを意識する。それだけで、何かが確実に変わる予感がする。
今回の写真展のテーマは「返事が要らないメッセージ」です。
