Serving the San Francisco Bay Area New Music Community


Ron Heglin

Trombone, tuba, voice
Ron Heglin is a Trombonist and Vocalist working with extended technique on the Trombone and with spoken and sung imaginary languages as a Vocalist.His vocal music has been influenced by his study of North Indian vocal music. He works both compositionally and in an improvisational mode and is a member of the Bay Area music context as well as performing internationally. He is a founding member of the groups MUSIC FOR ALL OCCASIONS, ROTODOTI, and BRASSIOSAURUS, and has performed with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, Leo Smith, Henry Brant, Logos Duo, Tim Perkis, John Bischoff,Tom Djll,and Toyoji Tomita.

He has these words to say about his music "process": "I think we choose a tuning for ourselves earley on and then gather those practices together to support and enhance that tuning and this practice becomes our way to know what we are experiencing in
the everyday,and if we neglect these practices that constitute our music then we lose our awareness of what we are experiencing.Often it seems that when I begin to sing or play there are surprises in my consciousness and in my body and and there is this task of integrating this new information: this is the practice, or part of it. This is the
edge of not knowing and the acceptance of this edge seems a very exciting place and hopefully continues to be a place where new integrations ( or awareness of chaos) can take place.Is this place the void?"

Finnish Kaleva Hall [1970 Chestnut St. Berkeley]
In celebration of his 70th Birthday Bay Area musicians come together for an Outsound Presents special incarnation of Grand master multi-reedist and composer Vinny Golia's Large Ensemble.
"Golia is an unconventional autodidact who works in a grand style, with broad, messy strokes, mixing take-no-prisoners improv with rigorous composition. He takes obvious delight in the range of sounds at his command in the Large Ensemble, from tuba to piccolo-a sort of Mingus meets Stravinsky..." DOWNBEAT
