Outsound Presents plays an important role in sustaining Bay Area creative and experimental music presenting over eighty shows annually on a very small budget including the Outsound New Music Summit in July, but it can’t happen without you. We hope you’ll consider making a tax deductible donation this year and join us at our annual dinner.

About the Music!
Robert Lopez, Drum Set and Percussion
Shanna Sordahl, Cello and Electronics
ZE BIB! is a collaborative effort between cellist/electronic musician Shanna Sordahl and percussionist Robert Lopez. Their music grapples with the spastic intensity arising from their explorations into sound worlds developed both collectively and independently. Both are graduates of Mills College's music MFA program, and their extreme musical interests converge with explosive force. Their music is tinged with influences ranging between noise, free improvisation, avant garde rock, and heavy drone. They cultivate psychological structures and interpretations of material grown out of improvisations, all with an emphasis on the deconstruction of composed melodic and rhythmic material.

Outsound Presents is a 501(c)3 charitable artist run organization. All donations are tax deductible minus the value of perks if applicable.

Cost: $100 - $1,000
