8:00pm NB!OKS!
Linda Michelle Hardy and Rachel Freund - flutes/clarinet
9:00pm Usufruct

Rachel Freund is a classically trained clarinetist and improvisor originally from the Bay area now in Sacramento.
Linda Michelle Hardy is a flute player both classic and indigenous flutes. Linda's love of the environment and endangered species informs the creation of our Site Specific Sound Creations!

Usufruct (YOO-zoo-fruckt) is the right of the people to harvest the fruits of common property. The duo Usufruct, consisting of flutist, vocalist, composer, and improviser Polly Moller Springhorn and computer musician Tim Walters, deconstructs, lovingly reassembles, and improvises around found texts and musical materials in the public domain.
Both are veterans of the Transbay creative music scene and equally at home in contemporary classical, rock, and freely improvised musics. In founding Usufruct they set out to bring sounds from their free-improvisation vocabularies into a more compositional framework, and set up a creative process where both their minds can wander and come together sonically over sounds and words embedded in Western consciousness. They find them ripe for slicing, dicing, tenderizing, pickling, caramelization, maceration, marinading, and presentation with special sauces.

Cost: $8-15 sliding
