Active Music Series presents SFSound In C + Malocculsion + Gosling

sfSoundOrchestra celebrates the 50th anniversary of Terry Riley’s “In C” and the “App Release Party” of “In C” for iPad.

On November 2, 1964 at The San Francisco Tape Music Center, 321 Divisidero, Terry Riley essentially launched Minimalism with the premiere of "In C”. Performers included Jeannie Brecken, Steve Reich, Jon Gibson, Terry Riley, Warner Jepson, Stan Schaap, Sonny Lewis, Ramon Sender, James Lowe, Morton Subotnick, Tony Martin, Mel Weitzman, Pauline Oliveros, and Phil Winsor. Although this classic work is often cited for its influence on composers like Glass, Reich, and Adams, its use of open instrumentation and dynamic form determined individually during the performance is perhaps more radical, and certainly more relevant to today’s Bay Area experimental music scene.

This performance is also the “App Release Party” of a new iPad app created by sfSound’s Matt Ingalls and Henry Warwick from Ryerson University (Toronto). Prof. Warwick will be present performing on the app as part of the orchestra. This extra-ordinary piece of software allows one person to play "In C", which is normally an ensemble work, as a solo performer. In this this way, and in a first of its kind performance, he will be performing as an ensemble, with an ensemble.

Malocculsion is the solo recording/performance moniker of Oakland based sound/visual artist malocculsion proto of Ratskin Records.Proto uses voice, tapes, loops, homemade electronics, and field recordings to create a dark mirror of the unknown through audio and visual trap door psychosis and high tension performances. Proto also runs and co-curates the Ratskin Records and Lewcid Joosebox imprints and often can be seen as the lead roadie for the Styrofoam Sanchez project. proto has solo recorded works planned for release on Tusco/Embassy and Ratskin Records.

Danishta Rivero (Voicehandler,Blood Wedding) and Sarah Elena Palmer (EFFT, Lutra Lutra) are Gosling;
an electro-acoustic soundscape project that uses analog machines and acapella effects. The Gosling code of conduct is that each improvisation adhere to the journey of the sound, without rush, fear, or assumption.
