Serving the San Francisco Bay Area New Music Community

Thu, Apr 18 2024 6:00 PM

Cheryl E Leonard presents a set of new instruments fashioned from objects found in nature as well as graphic scores meant for use with the instruments!

Reception with light refreshments starts at 6 followed by a talk/demo at 7 by Leonard.

In “Wilding,” newly-conjured musical instruments of wood, bone, shell, seaweed, and stone are combined with an assortment of graphic scores I have developed over the last two decades. Rooted in first hand explorations of untamed and re-wilded places – from the remote polar regions to right outside my front door in San Francisco – these sculptural instruments and notation experiments are part of my ongoing attempts to untangle how I can best duet with environments and ecosystems, to merge music and wilderness.
