Videos: Mark Southerland's Urban Noise Camp

Posted By on Mon, Mar 30, 2009 at 8:43 AM

If anyone ever tells you Kansas City isn't weird enough, direct them to jazz saxophonist and horn sculptor Mark Southerland. The winner of a 2008 Charlotte Street Foundation doesn't just toot his horn. Actually, the leader of perennially popular jazz combo Snuff Jazz builds his horns: curling, ivylike structures meant to be mounted on people, usually, women in shiny bodysuits. He even inspired a cartoon by one of our artists.

He's just posted new videos from the Charlotte Street Awards ceremony, part of an ongoing series of live installations called Urban Noise Camp. Below is a sample; three more videos are on his homepage, as well as photos by E.G. Schempf. Separately, here's a video interview of Southerland discussing his muse.
