Fri 4/28 7:30 PM Point Richmond Jazz [201 Martina St., Point Richmond, 94801 CA]
The Jacob Szekely Trio with cellist Jacob Szekely. With the Jacob Szekely Trio, Szekely has created a unique musical tapestry that incorporates the richness of jazz improvisation, the structure of classical music and the edginess of rock into its own alchemy which Szekely calls rock chamber jazz.

A risk taker who generally went with the first takes in the studio, Szekely has created an album that expands the sonic culture of the cello and showcases the influences of classical, jazz, funk, rock and East Indian music. His compositions are highly complex, yet always have groove at their core. Szekely explains " I've always been interested in pushing my instrument and myself. I was inspired by Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Jimi Hendrix early on but didnt tell my teachers at conservatory, because that didnt jibe with the classical tradition. It always felt like I was trying to bust out of the cello closet! '  More...

Inbal Segev: Cello & Electronics by Women Composers Featuring Music by Anna Clyne, Missy Mazzoli, Gity Razaz, & Augusta Read Thomas

New York-based cellist Inbal Segev, known for her "glowing, burnished tone" (The Washington Post) will perform a concert celebrating music for solo cello by women composers, including works by Anna Clyne, Augusta Read Thomas, Missy Mazzoli, and the West Coast premiere of a concerto for cello and electronics written for Segev by Gity Razaz called Legend of Sigh. Before Segev’s performance of Legend of Sigh, Donato Cabrera, Music Director of the California Symphony and Las Vegas Philharmonic, will read the Azerbaijani folktale on which the piece is based. Segev is in California to perform the world premiere of composer Dan Visconti's cello concerto written for her, Tangle Eye, with the California Symphony on Sunday, May 7. Equally committed to new repertoire and masterworks, Segev brings interpretations that are both unreservedly natural and insightful to the vast range of music she performs.  More...

Thu 5/04 7:30 PM CCRMA [660 Lomita Dr. Stanford]
Burnt Dot is an experimental noise and improvisation ensemble founded by Sarah Belle Reid (trumpet) and Ryan Gaston (modular synthesizer). Join us for the release of our cassette Constant Ballet and the premiere of a new audiovisual work Rare Earth for Desert Plant, with digital artist Sahir Khan.

The Rare Earth hypothesis states that complex life is the product of an intricate series of coincidental cosmic conditions. The unlikelihood for these precise circumstances to align suggests that intelligent life is rare elsewhere in the universe—if it exists at all. But perhaps complex life is more varied than we know to look for. It might even be all around us, undetected or simply unnoticed.
An audiovisual performance piece inspired by the emergence of organized systems in chaotic environments, Rare Earth for Desert Plant is a ritual plea for interstellar contact. Using augmented trumpet, modular synthesizers, interactive visuals, and ceremonial objects, a beacon for intelligent communication is formed and activated.

Thu 5/18 7:30 PM CCRMA [660 Lomita Dr. Stanford]
Join us for a multimedia, robotic, and generally chaotic doulble header concert with artists Bryan Jacobs and On Structure.

The Portal is a fully staged multimedia performance created, designed and performed by the performance duo On Structure (Natacha Diels and Jessie Marino). This 30 minute work of choreographed performance rituals uses live electronic sound, video projection, and DIY animatronics to stage a joyfully chaotic world which use folkloric songs, televised dramas, and amusement park scenography to tell the hidden mythologies of the Uncanny Valley. The Portal is a performance platform; part Video Game, part Ritual Alter, part Twilight Zone. On stage, the two heroines are jostled between the analog and digital worlds - preparing, practicing and perfecting their choreographed rituals as they move through different visual mediums, electronic sound worlds, and dreamscapes. Their playful actions respond to, mimic, or comment on their visual surroundings creating playfully menacing dramatic spaces where the line between reality and virtual reality is flickering in and out of focus.

Bryan Jacobs will present a menagerie of robitic and mechanical instruments - for more information on his various creatures see: http://bryanjacobsmusic.com.  More...
