Dana Lyn & Kyle Sanna: A “Through the Looking Glass” Approach to Irish Music

Brooklyn-based fiddler/violinist Dana Lyn and guitarist Kyle Sanna bring their inventive arrangements and nuanced interpretations of traditional Irish music to the Center for New Music. Hailed as “ground-breaking” by noted folklorist and NEA Award-recipient Mick Moloney and “bursting with creativity” by renowned fiddler Kevin Burke, Lyn and Sanna connect the dots between their experience as composers and improvisers and their deep admiration for traditional music. This concert will celebrate the release of their second album, “The Great Arc”.  More...

Nate Young
A Michigan carpenter specializing in pole barn framing, Young is also a musician and confirmed shapeshifter. As when coming out to see an orca in a tank far too small to contain it, don't be late and expect to get wet and eaten. https://soundcloud.com/nate-young

Three Legged Race
Hair Police was a riot and his soundtrack for Takeshi Murata bugged out the inner eye, but Three Legged Race, solo project of Kentucky's Robert Beatty, is something perfectly spare as is best for sounds crafted to span solipsistic chasms. Should these long sounds find you, step off to follow. http://www.ubu.com/film/murata_silver.html

Group Rhoda
Here is an interior music not for escape but for deeper dwelling, an infinite nestling that lowers you further to a darker ever more-distant surety, not comfort or ease but fearlessness. And there's voice in her song, that clearest closeness, word and open thought. http://grouprhoda.com/  More...

Wed 8/19 7:45 PM Second Act [1727 Haight St. SF]
Scott Arford
Bare, stoic, genuinely fearsome, and charged with a political undertow that sweeps away all safe shores, Arford translates sound into physical force resuscitating our loving nausea with a fresh breath of black air into lungs pumping with actual blood. He shatters the lucite ant maze of dualism, trusting us to crawl the shards. Founder of the legendary 7hz venue in 1995, Arfords worldwide exhibits of film and sound have reached SFMOMA(USA) Dissonanze 7(Italy) LUFF Festival(Switzerland) Observatori Festival(Spain) Sounding Festivals(China) Liquid Architecture(Australia) and Festival de Video/Arte/Electronico(Peru).

Tonal Masher
Anagrammatized for your pleasure, Tonal Masher or Aram Shelton, extends and resonates multiphonic dimensions of complex harmonic feedback using a 1927 Conn alto saxophone, a 1976 esophageal chamber, non-vintage cerebrospinal fluid, and bleeding edge electronics. The result is a dangerously enriched sonic uranium, stockpiles of which may be inspected on Cuneiform, Delmark, and Singlespeed records.

Las Sucias
Quit with your clean, put your lips on it already. With Danishta y Alexandra at the controls, what starts as Fever Pitch reggaeton gets stickied up fast once that contact-pineapple busts out. This is riot romance and you're about to break up with your spectator seat.

Fistortion
Ceramicist and sculptor, Sung Kim, builds original stringed instruments, like the "Ozukuri" the singular sounds of which he ferments in a loamy compost of collaboration where Korber's drums turn the worms of Gorlen's electronics even as Pederson's tenor tones emerge with the bone white clarity of ratskull. Good for your garden.

Fri 8/21 9:00 PM Adeline Arts Theater [3192 Adeline Ave. Berkeley,CA]
Ouroboros Shadow Pictures, based in Oakland, CA, is one of the foremost touring shadow-theater companies in the United States.
Their specialized methods of shadow-cinema set their work apart from that of other shadow groups. This summer, they are proud
to conclude their Northwest tour with a home town performance at the Adeline Arts Theater in Berkeley. This intimate, not-to-be missed
performance promises to be unlike anything you have seen. As it sweeps with sound and visual intrigue, this emotional
tone-poem reaches for the corners of memory by speaking to the desperation of everyone’s “too late”.
THE HISTORY OF WAKING UP will show on August 21st at 9:00pm.  More...
