Mayas/Buck/Krebs/Grosse Abfahrt at Tom's Place, Oct 6

On Thursday October 6 at 7:30pm, Tuesdays at Tom's Place presents

             Magda Mayas, Tony Buck and Annette Krebs
      Grosse Abfahrt (Djll, Ingalls, Perkis, Robair, Shiurba)

This Thursday, Tom's Place is happy to welcome Berliners Magda Mayas, Tony 
Buck and Annette Krebs.  They will be playing with Grosse Abfahrt, a 
continuing collaboration whose core members are a who's-who of Bay Area 
improvised music: Tom Djll (tpt), Matt Ingalls (cl, bcl), Tim Perkis 
(elec), Gino Robair (elec, perc) and John Shiurba (gtr.)

Magda Mayas is a Berlin-based pianist, concentrating on its sonic 
possibilities, utilizing extended techniques, amplification and 
preparations as a process of abstraction, whilst focusing on the 
physicality of both internal and external parts of the piano.

Tony Buck is a drummer and percussionist hailing from Australia. He has 
spent several decades performing with the avant-garde crowd there and 
elsewhere, hitting it off particularly well in Europe and eventually 
relocating to Amsterdam, then Berlin.

Annette Krebs works in Berlin as an improviser, composer and sound artist. 
She explores the space between tone and noise, action and silence, and the 
possibilities of a dramaturgic very free and abstract music.  Her music 
mixes tones, noises, field recordings and spoken language. As in an 
acoustic collage, she integrates fragments of language with tonal and 
rhythmic abstract instrumental sounds, noises and silence.

I believe that getting all eight musicians on the minuscule Tom's Place 
stage with a grand piano and trap set will violate the laws of physics, so 
probably they won't all play at once. But you never know, what with
faster-than-light neutrinos and all.

Tom's Place
3111 Deakin Street, Berkeley CA

Admission: donation.  All proceeds go directly to the musicians.
Doors open at 7:00.
