New York composer Glenn Branca nees 100 guitarists for his forthcoming show in Dublin’s Docklands. Well, 80 guitarists and 20 bass guitarists to be exact. The bass guitar is the one with four strings, in case you’re wondering.

Anyway

This performance will take place in Grand Canal Square in Dublin’s Docklands on Sunday 15th July as part of the Analog music festival.

Selected guitarists and bass players will be asked to attend two rehearsals on 13th and 14th July, from 11am to 9pm, as well as a soundcheck on the day of the concert. Food and drinks will be supplied at all rehearsals and the performance. All musicians will be required to read standard staff notation.

I have a feeling that this “standard staff notation” may be the Achilles Heel for many would-be mini-Brancas.

Those wishing to participate should email glenn@glennbranca.com or go to the Analog site.
