9:00 pm David Molina's Transient

RiRaeRo combines stories with improvised music. The stories tend to be very personal and the music has varying degrees of formal structure, and is also very personal. Maybe something like a soft conversation late at night in the dark.


Transient is David R Molina’s electro-acoustic, ambient, noise, sound art, free improvisation project. It can be solo or collaborative. For this concert he will be possibly be playing: pedal effects, Ableton Live, voice, guitar, invented instruments, and maybe Cello.
