The absurdist inventions of Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Rube Goldberg (1883-1970) -- which include such contraptions as the Simple Alarm Clock, the Modest Mosquito Bite Scratcher, and a ridiculously complex method for lighting a cigar in a speeding car -- come to life in composer, musician, and filmmaker Andy Biskin's Goldberg's Variations. In a series of droll black-and-white animations based on Goldberg's original illustrated designs, Biskin sets apparatus after apparatus in motion to the sounds of his whimsical original score. Performed by an all-star sextet featuring Biskin on clarinet, the music channels early jazz, vaudeville, and Looney Tunes-style mayhem to add tongue-in-cheek drama to these masterstrokes of ingenuity and wit. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=139817 Brooklyn Academy of Music true DD/MM/YYYY
