Eurythmy #2: Latifa Medjdoub & Haco / Tania Chen / Wobbly / Dereck Phillips

Visual artist LATIFA MEDJDOUB and sound artist HACO collaborate on Eurythmy#2, a social performance-concert at the Museum of Performance + Design inspired by nature’s energy and rhythmical order that is inviting an active public to reflect on the multiple levels of interconnectedness between individuals and networks. At the performance, the public will use sculptural modular elements and collaborate on the construction of a vast ephemeral flexible architecture in relation to live environmental sound designed by Japanese artist HACO. Through this unparalleled artistic experience, participants will gradually be transported within the material space of an expansive soft fiber-sculpture and the immaterial space of open ended environmental sound.  More...

Grex: Karl Evangelista-guitar, Rei Scampavia-keys, Robert Lopez-drums, w/Dan Clucas-trumpet
Song & Dance Trio: Karl Evangelista-guitar, Jordan Glenn-drums, Cory Wright-baritone sax

Oakland art rock trio Grex and LA trumpeter Dan Clucas perform a powerful, drastic reworking of John Coltrane’s A Love Supreme, refracting the mighty saxophonist’s suite through a gauntlet of noise rock, alternative hip-hop, and other latter day musics. Karl Evangelista's longstanding Song & Dance Trio--a bass-less blend of modern jazz textures and roving, garage-y energy--opens the evening.  More...

Moe! Staiano Ensemble

Moe! Staiano is an Oakland-based composer/drummer whose large ensembles, Moe! Staiano Ensemble and Moe!kestra!, have performed in both Europe and the United States. His dense, heavy and intense compositions often include unconventional instrumentation, such as sirens, u-bolts, prepared guitars and wine glasses, as well as traditional orchestral and rock instruments. His composition, "Away Towards the Light," is an exploration of tonal interplay and contrasting rhythms for nine electric guitars, bass and drums composed in three movements, and is his first composition for multiple electric guitars.

Jenny Maybee’s “eloquent and heart stopping” piano playing and vocals have been hailed as “expertly balanced,” with her voice described as “exquisite” and “in the same league” as Billie Holiday, and her piano stylings compared to Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea, McCoy Tyner, and Cecil Taylor. Jenny’s trio, featuring John Wiitala (bass) and Hamir Atwal (drums), will bring an evening of innovative music to The Sound Room.
