Sun 9/24 3:00 PM Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive [2155 Center St. Berkeley]
“Music is our refuge,” says a student at the Sainte Trinité Music School in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. “With music . . . we feel we are in another world, far from troubles.” Owsley Brown’s vibrant documentary recognizes the troubles but celebrates the refuge, testifying to the role that music can play in creating community and sustaining hope under the most difficult of circumstances. Shot in Port-au-Prince over a period of years both before and after the 2010 earthquake that killed hundreds of thousands and reduced much of the city to rubble, Serenade for Haiti finds a locus of continuity at Sainte Trinité, which has been training young people in classical European and Haitian musical traditions since the 1950s. Replete with vivid images and sounds, the film focuses on interviews with students—most of them poor, some orphaned by political violence—and their teachers, many former students themselves. All speak eloquently about how the discipline of music has helped them discover their own voices and value in the world. After the quake, with the school’s stately white buildings in ruins, lessons and practice continue outdoors, maintaining a rhythm of resilience. In one teacher’s words, “The country is destroyed. All the buildings are destroyed. Music must go on. Life goes on.”  More...

Ehnahre: The Marrow, with Kyle Bruckmann and Friends

The Boston based extreme new music ensemble Ehnahre, "draws forth the extreme quality of metal but also pushes it in different directions: extreme restiveness, but also extreme stasis, extreme haziness...switching between shadowy warmth and carpet-bomb assault..." (Matthew Guirrieri, New Music Box). Currently on tour in support of The Marrow, their most adventurous record to date, the group will be appearing with core members Ryan Mcguire (vocals, contrabass), Richard Chowenhill (guitars), and Joshua Carro (percussion, electronics).  More...

COLLISION STORIES is a four-piece abstract sound brigade based in San Francisco, CA.

Members: Jorge Bachmann, Bryan Day, Michael Gendreau, and Mason Jones.

Instruments may include: analog and digital synthesizers, guitar, bass, turntables, percussion, theremin, and handmade sound machines.

The four members of San Francisco's Collision Stories came together after having encountered each other over a number of years, crossing paths here and there as they wove their strands through the experimental, psychedelic, improvisational, electronics, and avant-garde scenes. Once they finally gathered and spent an evening engrossed in collective sound-making it was evident that their diverse backgrounds coalesced into something unique and intriguing.  More...

Kit Young & Friends
Whenever Kit Young spins up his centrifugal fugues of light and sound, the flatness of solely digital sight and sound explode but somehow don't fly apart.
http://www.youngkit.com/videos/

Elf Ass
Like mixing bleach with ammonia, this combination of Ettrick (drum and sax duo of Jay Korber and Jacob Felix Heule) and Tralphaz (electronics onslaught of David Lim) has always been ill-advised, but when first attempted in 2006 they anticipated the invention of bath salts by nearly a decade.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vn8ZENuW7TQ

arc
The presence of Tooth is something so elementally all embracing you want to kick free of soil to remain there, or wield some apparatus to perceive his form and substance clearly. But set aside your sphygmomanometers, you're body and symbolic mind have been equipped thru eons of mutation to detect and dwell within Tooth's solo project, arc. https://soundcloud.com/000arc000

M-KAT
Mqrunah, flute, alto master, Kersti Abrams, vibrational bassist Thomas Harrison, thereminist Andrew Joron, and electronicist percussionist Mark Pino convene as the avant-space improv quartet, M-KAT (nee: "Cosmists.") M-KAT unfurls the space-time tapestry stretching from the early 60s avant garde of jazz to wholly original moments of our now and our future. M-KAT will be joined by video improvisor, Ann O'Rourke!

The Rimsky-Korsakov String Quartet from St. Petersburg, Russia, returns to Sunset Music & Arts in the fall in another exciting program for the string quartet. The Rimsky-Korsakov String Quartet, based in Saint Petersburg, Russia, formed in 1939, is a monument to Russian musical history. The present members Mikhail Bondarev (violin), Ekaterina Belisova (violin), Alexei Popov (viola), Anton Andreev (cello) are graduates of the Saint Petersburg Conservatory who, by virtue of a shared background steeped in the grand tradition of Russian music making, achieve organic and convincing interpretations of a diverse repertoire of masterworks, Russian classics, and contemporary masters. The Quartet champions the music of Russian composers with the core of their repertoire being the music of Borodin, Tchaikovsky, Glazunov, Taneyev and Stravinsky. They also perform lesser-known masterworks of Glinka, Alabiev, Rimsky-Korsakov, Gretchaninov, Miaskovsky and Mossolov.  More...

KOBE / LORIO / WONG TRIO:
The international trio of Theresa Wong (cello), Christian Kobe (saxophones) and Frantz Lorio (viola) came together for the first time in 2016. In their improvised music, the three quickly found a synergy in the focused exploration of acoustic sounds and the transformation of these sounds through amplification. Like a ‘microscope’ set to an image, the trio reveals the rich microcosm of their instruments through extended playing and mic techniques. Their music can be likened to the electrically pulsating din of a nocturnal insect colony.  More...
