Eric Theise + UNPOPULAR ELECTRONICS
(Gino Robair with Tom Djll)
ANN CALLAWAY + RICHARD MIX


Eric Theise and UNPOPULAR ELECTRONICS (Gino Robair with Tom Djll) present real time cartographic improvisations using projected, manipulated digital maps, and custom-built electro-acoustic instruments. Evenings of street grids, rivers, islands, and curiosities from the built environment. Saturated colors. Glitches in crowdsourced data. Orphaned information and free-floating symbology.

ANN CALLAWAY plays her Three Existential Postcards for Piano and Char: Six Poems by Shinjiro Kurahara with RICHARD MIX, bass; plus works for solo voice by JOHN CAGE, MORTON FELDMAN, HENRI POUSSEUR, ELLIOTT CARTER, troubadors, trouveres & minnesingers.

Cost: $10-$25 sliding scale
