Happy New Year!
This is to let you know about my year-opening show tomorrow, Sat, 05 Jan at one of the East Bay's most fascinating venues — Jacob Lindsay's Crane House:
MSP/piano: Music of Subtraction (tomorrow, Sat 05 Jan, @Crane House, near Ashby BART, 8pm) + A Cloud Has A Form But No Edges (9pm)
— more AI speech and syntax processing bits from new artificial musical life-forms under development in the lab…
— introducing structures, sonic erasure grammars, and meta-rāgas based around missing and disappearing elements
— quantum ripples of listening at the edges of a space defined by warped time, shimmering piano clusters, and subtractive algorithms/procedures
+ A Cloud Has A Form But No Edges, the new post-minimalist sextet of the Bay Area's premier paranormal researchers:
Kristian Aspelin - guitar
Kyle Bruckmann - oboe and English horn
Ton Dryer - bass
Jacob Felix Heule - percussion
Jacob Lindsay - clarinets
Kanoko Nishi-Smith (西鹿乃子) - koto
Write-up, images & details: here
Also, have a look at the wonderful photos of our laptop + sax show last week @ LSG with image-jamming / visual synthesis by fellow BArCMuTer Warren Stringer, and Rent Romus on sax.
After this next show @ Crane House, I'm going to pull back from shows for few weeks (except my regular @ Viracocha) to focus on tasks associated with 2 upcoming major curations:
— the Vexations [Re-Vex'd] improv marathon @ Berkeley Arts Festival on 22-23 March
— a night devoted to digital synthesis with emphasis on AI, digital improv, and strange digital controllers for the 12th Annual Outsound New Music Summit Festival, which will take place in San Francisco on 24 - 27 July, 2013.
I'll re-emerge with a new show on 27 Jan @ Berkeley Arts Festival.
More details about all of these to follow…
Meanwhile, please feel free to forward this to anyone you think would be interested on our show tomorrow, and best wishes for 2013!
Hope to see you at these great events,
Regular booking: Viracocha, 21st & Valencia, SF, Wednesday afternoons 3pm-6pm
