Dina Maccabee: San Francisco Solo CD Release!

Dina will present her entire new solo album for viola, voice, and processing, live, with video projections contributed by an eclectic group of far flung collaborators. This special event celebrates her CD release for the Bay Area, where she played with groups like Real Vocal String Quartet, Ramon & Jessica, and many others.


Violist and songwriter Dina Maccabee creates new sounds drawing on many adventurous years of collaboration, exploration and musical travels. A member of noted songwriter Julia Holter’s touring band during 2015 and 2016, in that time she also created the World Is In The Work, her brand new solo album for viola, voice, and laptop processing. Developed between tour stops around the world, the album tests the boundaries of its sparse instrumentation as the viola is transformed from its classical origins into a richly layered accompaniment and hypnotic rhythmic engine.
