Our Sacred Noise in Street Light Shadows
Live performance by Radio Healer

Friday, October 20, 2017
7:00 – 9:00 PM

Radio Healer, a Native American and Xicano-led performance ensemble founded in the Southwestern United States, will present a sound performance by two of the collective's artists, Cristóbal Martínez (of Postcommodity) and Meredith Martínez. Our Sacred Noise in Street Light Shadows consists of six newly commissioned compositions that are composed for five handmade electronic instruments, three Mexican ocarinas, a conch shell, and a Pueblo elk whistle. They perform the wailing cry of La Llorona as she is carried by pedestrian currents that flow through the nighttime streets of San Francisco. Listen to the sacred sounds of frenetic capitalism and its byproduct hallucinations of laughter, violence, and dreams. Imagine the hypnotic momentum of the manipulations of the unseen hand of power-holders.
