- Suki O'Kane
- Aaron Oppenheim

Velox Humm
Lenny Gonzalez - Electric Baritone Guitar/effects + Scott Amendola - drums/percussion/electronics

Velox Humm play a free music that explores the territory between unplanned and planned structures, the discordant and tuneful, tempo vs anti-meter. This is all to say anything goes, albeit through the lens of their friendship and value system. It is a hunt for that elastic thread that connects our emotional opposites.

Suki O'Kane
Active Music catches Oakland-based percussionist / composer Suki O'Kane in a moment of inquiry that she's forcing herself to answer alone, using Jurassic electronics, hand-held projectors, and a concert bass drum.

Aaron Oppenheim is an American-Canadian, Canadian-American composer, improviser and sound artist currently based in Oakland, CA. His work focuses on laptop-based improvised music, autonomous systems, audio and video feedback, and the repurposing of cheap, mass-produced, and obsolete technology.

Cost: $5-15 sliding scale
