Oakland Freedom Jazz Society: Erika Bell & Ben Levinson + Jakob Pek (solo)

Erika Bell: Loose, textural soundscapes, and ethereal song-based music that comes out of a practice of experimental music composition and improvisation (studying with Michael Pisaro and Wolfgang Von Schweinitz as well as others at CalArts)

Ben Levinson: Music based on pop songwriting, bare arrangements, and surreal delivery, a LA Andy Kaufman.

Erika Bell SoundCloud | Ben Levinson aka California's Bellow Bandcamp

Jakob Pek (SOLO)
Jakob Pek is a musician and artist based in Oakland, CA. He creates a contemporary world music for the new century.

Avant-garde, experimental, and improvisational in nature, Jakob's music interweaves chaos with symmetry, harmonizing refined expressions of familiar sonic worlds with journeys into uncharted domains of abstraction and discovery.

DOORS 9:00 PM; SHOW 9:30 PM
