Active Music Series presents:
- Ze Bib! (Robert Lopez & Shanna Sordahl)
- toxo (Kelley Kipperman, Aurora Josephson and Katerina Kopelevich)
- Oa (Matt Davignon & Hugh Behm-Steinberg)

Toxo is a trio comprised of Aurora Josephson (voice), k. kipperman (upright bass), and Kataryna Kopelevich (piano/pianet). The three met at Mills College and have recently begun improvising together.

Oa creates experimental music from the sounds of language. Writer Hugh Behm-Steinberg and sound manipulator Matt Davignon have recorded various anecdotes, conversations and sung pitches from their peers, neighbors, musicians and other writers. Performing either as a duo or collaborating with other sound artists, they break down these elements with samplers and digital turntables, then rebuild them into improvised musical passages and narratives.

Cost: $5-15 sliding scale
