Dear BArCMuTers - 

This is to let you know about a unique double bill of electro-acoustic improv tomorrow.


MSP / piano w Aaron Bennett's Electro-Magnetic Trans-Personal Orchestra @ Berkeley Arts Festival (9pm, tomorrow Wed 15 May) + Ornettology (8pm)


— Electro-Magnetic Transpersonal Orchestra

The members of Aaron Bennett's E.M.T.P.O. ensemble use the electro-magnetic field of their collective mind to attain a unitive transcendent state of sonic consciousness and in turn, create sublime and unusually expanded sonic experiences for their listeners.

The electro-magnetic field is tuned and amplified by means of unique "breathing chart" compositions using a special graphic notation Aaron has designed for large improvising ensembles to focus and unleash aural energies. The resulting sound is like nothing else and has amazed audiences in a string of orgone-accelerating Bay Area performances over the last year.


Aaron Bennett - sax, leader & compositions
Robert Ewing - trombone
Darren Johnston - trumpet
Joe Lasqo - MSP & piano
Bob Marsh - accordion & spiritual guidance counselor 
Lisa Mezzacappa - bass
Crystal Pascucci - cello

— Ornettology

Polyvalent Bay Area artiste Myles Boisen has assembled a squad of players with deep knowledge of Ornette Coleman's music and presenting fresh arrangements of the free jazz iconoclast's tunes, so expect a tornado of energy and trickster wisdom.


Steve Adams - alto saxophone
Vijay Anderson - drums 
Myles Boisen - ringleader &  guitar 
John Finkbeiner - guitar 
Chris Grady - trumpet 
Phillip Greenlief - tenor saxophone 
Lisa Mezzacappa - bass

Who knows what will happen when these two powerful improvisatory ensembles converge on the same space-time coordinates?

Hope to find out with you tomorrow night!
