Israeli born, St. Louis-based artist Edo Rosenblith will guide COCA visitors of all ages in creating a site-specific mural, blurring the distinction between artist and audience. Inspired by Rosenblith’s signature black and white wall drawings, the mural will reflect the thoughts, ideas, opinions and expectations expressed through collective visual impressions on COCA’s Millstone Gallery walls. Let Me Help You Make A Mural serves as a visual call and response that evolves over time, where the audience is invited to join the artist in creating a mural. The exhibition marks Rosenblith’s first time-based and community-collaborative work.

 

Curated by Yvonne Osei, Curator in Residence at COCA, the intention of this exhibition is to dissolve the boundaries between the artist’s private studio and the gallery space, inviting the public to become active participants in both the production and consumption of art.

COCA Community Open House: Saturday, June 9, 2018, 11am – 1pm

Sweet Knives (Memphis, TN) 

https://soundcloud.com/alicja-pop/sets/sweet-knives-samples-2017 

In 2005 Memphis black-wave synth punk band Lost Sounds called it quits after being kicked out of a house in Stuttgart in the middle of a long long night. Four albums and numerous singles and outtakes releases were left over, and the brutal live show would never happen again. As Jay Reatard (½ of the Lost Sounds songwriting team with Alicja Trout) continued to grow his hopeful career on Matador Records, the other band members moved on down less-publicized roads. 

 

Rich Crook, drummer of Lost Sounds, formed Lover! and Thing and toured with them as singer/guitar player. Alicja Trout toured with River City Tanlines, Black Sunday, Mouserocket, and released solo recordings as Alicja-pop. Meanwhile, time was healing the wounds that had caused the band to break up. 

 

Sadly Jay’s light died in January 2010. 

 

So what was to become of the Lost Sounds? 

 

In 2015 Alicja, Rich, and original member John Garland brought back a set of tunes from the old Lost Sounds closet. They called themselves Sweet Knives, named after a song from the Lost Sounds 2004 In The Red “Future Touch” seven song EP. In January 2016 the group recorded a four song double 7” for Red Lounge Records. 

 

A full length has been released in 2017 on Bigneck Records. Sweet Knives has been sparsely but regularly touring, playing new songs and some of the old Lost Sounds numbers. Graham Burks (Memphis) brings his double stacked analog synths to the line-up, and Eli Steele (Nashville), guitar player for Thing, is on bass. 

 

Lost Sounds was known for their songs filled with paranoid riffs, upbeat hooks, and a synth-laden yet rock n roll sound. Sweet Knives carries on this tradition with a new delivery, less likely to fall apart and fall off stage. A decade after Lost Sounds ended, the angst has been quelled a bit.
