in various combinations, company-style, with
Gino Robair (perc, elec)
Tim Perkis (elec)
Lisa Mezzacappa (cb)
Kjell Nordeson (perc)
Kyle Bruckmann (ob)

Swedish electronic improvisers Palle Dahlstedt and Per Anders Nilsson of duo pantomorf play electronic instruments of their own design. We love the noisy, chaotic sounds they get, and the incredibly expressive playing that their designs enable. There's a clip of them playing with Tim Perkis here.

For this Tuesday we've invited several like-minded Bay Area performers to join them in various ad hoc groupings. Participants include Gino Robair on percussion and electronics, Tim Perkis on electronics, Lisa Mezzacappa (contrabass), Kjell Nordeson (percussion) and Kyle Bruckmann (oboe) and possibly another guest or two to be named later.

Note: "company-style" is just a more genteel way of saying "cage match."
