TAV Issue #2 Release Party at Encyclopedia Destructica on Sept 11!

HEY! Do you like art? Do you like music? Well, what are you doing on this blog then?? Oh, you do? Well you better make it out to Encyclopedia Destructica's TAV Issue 2 Release Party on Sept 11 from 7:05pm to 11:05pm (and not a minute before :05) at Encyclopedia Destructica Studios (156 41st Street) for FREE (except TAV Issue 2 is just five bucks)! What in the heck is TAV you ask? Well, ED will tell you:
Tav is an open group of artists, writers, filmmakers, and musicians whose collective works are compiled and released several times each year in special themed issues. Tav’s second issue, out now on CD, contains over one hundred individual pieces of fiction, poetry, painting, drawing, video, and song from Pittsburgh natives and national contributors. A release event for Issue 2 featuring art and video from contributors will be held on Friday, September 11th, at Encyclopedia Destructica Studios.

In honor of the designation of 2009 as the International Year of Astrology, Tav chose an exploration of the mythology of space as its curatorial center. Complete with an introduction animation inspired by the midnight laser shows of the Carnegie Science Center, every element of Tav bears a direct or loose relation to this theme. Consistent in all works is a sense of isolation, an investigation of the inner world, the hidden world, the otherworld, and the unknown, and an attempt to capture and understand the singular mystique and insular nature of both the individual and the universe she creates.

With each release Tav selects a contributor whose works exemplify the aim of the issue, to feature in both the issue and on Tav’s website. Hooliganship, a two-person art and music group featuring the collective efforts of Peter Burr and Christopher Doulgeris, former Pittsburgh residents and graduates of Carnegie Mellon University, was selected as the featured contributor for Issue 2. Hooliganship’s Adventure and Gylden Load videos, as well as several music tracks and videos by solo artist Peter Burr can be found on Issue 2.
