Shock Corridor and Other Works

 

 

Inspired by Samuel Fuller’s 1963 melodrama, Shock Corridor, composer and turntable artist David Shea presented an eponymous musical work at The Kitchen. As he incorporated slices of Fuller’s film with a variety of samplers and effect units, Shea created a virtuosic soundscape that delved further into the sonic interior of this classic dramatic work. Joined by experimental musicians including Jim Staley (trombone), David Weinstein (sampler, sound effects), Shelley Hirsch (voice), Anthony Coleman (sampler), Ikue Mori (drum machines), and Zeena Parkins (electric harp), Shea also presented three other electro-acoustic pieces—Trio for Samplers, Solo for Four Turntables, and Cartoon for Scott Bradley.
