Thu 12/08 8:00 PM Peacock Lounge [552 Haight St SF]
Madalyn Merkey, Roco Córdova, Chandra Shukla, Syrnx
Thurs Dec. 8pm-11pm $5 notaflof, all ages
Peacock Lounge, 552 Haight, SF

Madalyn Merkey
It's not enough to see and hear, Merkey's audience must smell and taste and touch and dream and laugh and remember and change.

Roco Córdova
Their music has been described as "slow-boiling, apparently timeless" with "an odd momentum of its own" in the Washington Post. But that was just one gig, sure it was as part of the Art Ensemble of Chicago at Kennedy Center, each such concert is a singular experience and to hear Córdova in the Peacock Lounge Gold Room will be an unguessable experience.

Chandra Shukla
Core to the ongoing multimedia collective Xambuca, the beloved Chandra Shukla departs the frozen east to alight in the west. Where more inviting than the lounge of the Peacock!

Syrnx
Enlarge past sight with the cryptic solo stylings of Yasi Perera heretofore performing as Syrnx foretohere alighting in the Peacock on a wisp of spider silk, attuned to the percussive potential of each electron impact.

The Surround Sound Salon Series (SSSS) is a monthly show at CNM where composers present their music through an 8-channel surround system, generously provided by Meyer Sound. SSSS#9 Sound Pool is a live improvised performance by four composer/performers sharing a dynamically shifting 8-channel sound system. The creative musicians are: Zachary James Watikins, electonics, Ava Koohbor, electronics; Ben Davis, cello, and Chris Brown, virtual piano & electronic mix. The performance is continuous and lasts exactly one hour, and the audience is free to choose their own listening location, and to move within the space to hear the music from different vantage points.  More...

Saturday, December 10
Sat 12/10 4:00 PM St. Mark's Episcopal Church [600 Colorado Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94306, USA]
This fall, the Peninsula Women’s Chorus weaves a tapestry of sound from a collection of contemporary and classical works stitched together with flute interludes created by our guest artist, Rachel Beetz. Focusing on how we are drawn together as family, friends, communities, and even pen pals, the repertoire explores the beauty and struggle of relationships and the time and work underlying meaningful connection. Beginning with Ysaye Barnwell’s wise and moving “We Are,” we continue with Aaron Copland’s vision of our final gathering in “At the River,” followed by Felix Mendelssohn’s stately contemplation of our connection to the divine, “Laudate Pueri Dominum.” The concert then weaves traditional chants, and Beetz’s live and processed flute sounds with contemporary works by Pamela Z, Amy X Neuburg, Karen Siegel, Eve Beglarian, and Eva Ugalde Álvarez. This concert will showcase the premiere of our commission by Jennifer Wilsey, titled “Would You Like to Have It All?” detailing the beauty of female friendship by means of text gathered from PWC and crafted into a libretto by Lynn Marie Kirby and Denise Newman. We conclude the concert with holiday selections, including selections from Vaughan Williams’ “Hodie,” Flory Jagoda’s “Ocho Kandelikas,” a Ladino song celebrating a child’s joyful memories of Chanukah, and ending with a boisterous celebration of gathering found in The Highwomen’s “The Crowded Table.”  More...

SHARKIFACE/ANGELA EDWARDS + Eric Glick Rieman

ANGELA EDWARDS presents Invoke: Parte 2, an aleatory score in the form of a card game. The deck consists of 30 text and 10 visual cards. In this case, the conductor chooses cards for the players and determines the length of time each card is played. The specifics of the card and the order is left to fate. Players include: ALEXANDRA BUSCHMAN-ROMAN, voice; Matt Ingalls, clarinets; KANOKO NISHI, koto; BRAN(..)POS, electronics; and MITCH STAHALMANN, flute. Edwards also performs her electro-acoustic solo project, SHARKIFACE.

Eric Glick Rieman offers a piece for ensemble that includes improvisation with friends from the SOUTH BERKELEY CHAMBER ENSEMBLE (Masha Albrecht, violin; Tracy Randolph, English horn; Laurence Lewis, viola). Reiman also performs his explorative solo work for prepared and augmented Rhodes electric piano -- an instrument designed to show off the mechanical sounds of the Rhodes piano that are usually unheard.  More...
