It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Notice Recordings, the almost decade-old record label that specializes in experimental fare from around the world. The imprint has gone through some shifting dynamics, not least of which came when one of its co-founders, Evan Lindorff-Ellery, relocated from Portland to New York’s Hudson Valley. This year, Notice has slowly been coming back online and taking a bold step forward, specifically with the forthcoming release of a recording of four John Cage pieces, performed by local percussionist (and curator of the quarterly Extradition Series) Matt Hannafin. It’s a stunning realization of these modern classical works; challenging but generous interpretations replete with incident and moments of unsettling volume. Lindorff-Ellery will be back in Portland tonight to celebrate the release of this tape with performances of three Cage pieces and Christian Wolff’s sputtering “Play,” along with dance accompaniment.
