The Inbetween Series, (The Gallery At Avalon Island, 39 S Magnolia Ave, Orlando, FL) hosted David Vassalotti. The Inbetween Series happens once a month when one art show is removed from the gallery walls, and another show goes up. Unique musicians use the venue as a small concert hall. Several simple lamps acted as stage lights. A skull was on the floor with the brain cavity open.
David's music was hard edged and seemingly improvised. At times he would get on his knees to play, while electronic reverb pulsed through the foot-switch console. The friend I was with didn't much like the music, feeling it was "masturbatory." I let my mind wander as the lines danced on the page, and the electronic music helped keep the flow spontaneous.
Mark your calendar. On March 22, The Gallery at Avalon Island screened Fargo in the upstairs screening room. Fargo is the original Coen Brothers classic about "Homespun murder." The plot centers on an ill-fated plan of greed, kidnapping, extortion, and a trusty wood chipper. Doors open at 6pm, film rolled at 7pm.
