Prélude/Introit, 8pm: Bob Marsh
& Evangel KingBob Marsh
and associates have made many multimedia interpretations of Bob's graphic scores in the rhizomic window/door/river project. Bob Marsh
(cello) and Evangel King (dance) perform one of the most beautiful of these fascinating pieces in a short site-specific realization designed specifically for the Berkeley Arts Festival space.
Set 1, 8:20pm: Henry Kuntz
& Envision Ensemble
A rare appearance by a daring pioneer of joyously unbounded, infinitely free jazz and world music for a new world. The Envision Ensemble (an outgrowth of the earlier Opeye Orchestra) moves toward an advanced improvisational archetype, one in which multiple independent events may occur while the musicians simultaneously create an experiential musical whole. Also joining will be special guest Dan Plonsey
, who has made a career out of being mathematically impossible.
Line-up: Henry Kuntz
, Brian Godchaux, John Kuntz, Esten Lindgren, Dan Plonsey
Set 2, 9:15pm: Tom Duff & his Wire Machine
In another rare appearance, Bay Area master Tom Duff will install and perform/operate Wire Machine, which takes Alvin Lucier's seminal composition/installation Music on a Long Thin Wire and runs with it on his enhanced version, The Wire Machine (last seen at Battery Townsley in the Marin Headlands as part of Soundwave (5)).
Tom will use his expanded version of Lucier's kit to perform his piece Lucier, Golomb, Gray, exploring the effects of useful information encoding schemes on a vibrating electromechanical system and its listeners.
