Serving the San Francisco Bay Area New Music Community

Sun, Dec 4 2016 7:30 PM

7:30 pm Eric Glick Rieman - piano
8:30 pm Clucas/Djll/Glenn trio
Dan Clucas - trumpet, Tom Djll - trumpet, Jordan Glenn - drums

Three seasoned improvisers come together for the first time in a set that’s sure to be exploratory, revelatory, hortatory, and even minatory, whatever that means! Clucas, he of the beautiful sound and encyclopedic exposition of the masters; Djll, he of the warped imagination and bottomless thirst for playing things he doesn’t know how to play; Glenn, First Percussionist for the Bay Area, on-call for any and every kind of duty, and also a knockout composer. In fact, all three players are Composers of Surprise who love to do it right in front of your eyes and ears, so don’t miss this unique gathering.

Performing on a variety of instruments, including the prepared/extended Rhodes electric piano, as well as piano, melodica, celeste, organ, Waterphone, and toy piano, SF Bay Area composer/improviser Eric Glick Rieman performs improvised and previously structured music in several settings, both solo and in groups, He has performed with the Mills College Contemporary Performance Ensemble in Oakland, CA, USA since 1999, and received an MFA from Mills in Electronic Music and the Recording Media in 2001. Rieman writes for piano, Rhodes electric piano, and ensembles.

His recent compositions include explorations of Biosonicism (music created at the intersection of composition and biology). The "Helix Aspersa Series"(2008) is a series of graphic scores made in collaboration with snails. "Felis Catus Series I" is a series of graphic scores made in collaboration with a cat (2009). "Circle House and Chutes"(2009) is a piece for indeterminate ensemble employing techniques used to handle cattle in a slaughterhouse to herd an ensemble through a score.
