Dave Mihaly brings his own solo magic, spread across the timbral spectrum, including percussion, guitar, and voice.
Dave is an organizer and disorganizer of sound. He writes instrumental music, music with lyrics, and collaborates with musicians in bands and improvisational mayfly-like ensembles. He has recorded his music, music of other people, and is a fan to some degree of all genres and post genre sounds as well. He has been traveling the past few years to western China to record and concertize with musicians there, in Chengdu and Chongqing. He plays in a steady stream of groups in the SF bay area and made and released a recording this year on the Calar label called "Light in the Ring, the Ali suite' with his trio, Shimmering Leaves. Tonight he will play recently made music in a solo setting

Bassist/composer Bill Noertker has been active in the Bay Area jazz and avant-garde scene since the late 1980s.
Since 2001, he has lead his own ensemble, Noertker's Moxie, as a forum for compositions inspired by visual artists such as Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky, Franz Marc, Salvador Dalí, and Joan Miró, architect Antoni Gaudí, poet Rainer Maria Rilke, sculptor David Beck, and others. Noertker has composed over 175 pieces of music for this group and has released eleven CDs, including three volumes of his extended suite Sketches of Catalonia, three volumes of his extended Blue Rider Suite, and three volumes of his druidh series.
He has also composed music for three films that showcase the intimately-scaled sculptures of David Beck, composed the score for a Nikos Koumoundouros film that screened at the Festival de Cannes 2010, and most recently scored the Olympia Stone film “Curious Worlds: the Art and Imagination of David Beck.”

Cost: sliding scale $10-20
