Text of Light

When Lee Ranaldo is playing with David Watson and Tony Buck, it's called Glacial. When Lee is playing with Kim Gordon, Thurston Moore, and Steve Shelly, it's called Sonic Youth. If it's Lee and Alan Licht (and friends), then it would be Text of Light, and that's who played Knitting Factory in NYC earlier this month with Demons (Nate Young of Wolf Eyes) and Nancy Garcia..

The Text of Light group was formed in 2001 with the idea to perform improvised music to the films of Stan Brakhage and other members of the American Cinema avante garde of the 1950s-60s (Brakhage's film 'Text of Light' was the premiere performance and namesake of the group). The original premise was to improvise (not 'illustrate') to films from the American Avante-Garde (50s-60s etc), an under-known period of American filmic poetics. [SonicYouth.com]
