Glenn Branca to Set Up Hallucination City in Seattle

Holy crap! Apparently I had Glenn Branca on the brain last week for good reason, because he's confirmed that he will be bringing his Symphony No. 13 (Hallucination City) to Seattle's Olympic Sculpture Park on May 16th, as part of the Seattle Art Museum's "Party in the Park" fundraising event. Judging by the Youtube clips I've seen of this, it's pretty unforgettable.

Now the only catch is that Branca needs to recruit 80 (!) guitar players and 20 bass players to perform the symphony with him. Not just any players, mind you, but ones that can read standard staff notation and follow a part measure by measure. What's more, they have to be available for two rehearsals on May 14th and 15th, each lasting from 11:00am to 9pm.

I've already spoken to Branca and told him he needs hook up with the Climax Golden Twins pronto, as well as faculty at the Tacoma School of the Arts and the Cornish College of the Arts. It's a dauntingly ambitious project, but one that sounds entirely worth the effort. Interested musicians should read the complete press release here and get in touch with Branca directly.
