Sunday, December 15
Sun 12/15 6:00 PM Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive [2155 Center St. Berkeley]
Los Angeles–based composer Tashi Wada presents his new group featuring Julia Holter and percussionist Corey Fogel, performing music from Wada’s album Nue. This collaboration ranges from minimalist bagpipes to otherworldly vocals, creating, in Wada’s words, “a vision, an endless night of dreams, and a personal history of sorts, full of joys and demons.” From the doubling of tones—and the world of harmonic nuances such an action produces—to the interplay between individual musicians, Wada’s compositions allow space for these elements to join and grow.  More...

Evil Moisture
Fragility itself leaps from his fingertips, circuits keel away catastrophically perishing in sounds you're sure never to hear again.

Hobo Sonn
Hobo Sonn is the dissolver of sound and with it go all touchstones of reality, every grain beneath your feet. With releases on Chocolate Monk, Ruralfaune, and Pendu.

Thomas Dimuzio
Thomas Dimuzio celebrates his first all-Buchla album where signals fetched from the modulated airwaves are sent corruscating through custom algorithmic crossfades.

DemonFace
To hear the music of DemonFace is to glimpse the anchorline beneath it all. In sunless depths where noord, tranoe, toe fetish and larynx converge an immense hunger hunts without rest.

Ava Mendoza
Since moving from Oakland to Brooklyn, Mendoza's guitar powers have only amplified, her voice intensified, her collaborators multiplied, and her chops been verified. Tonight expect a solo set.

Experiments in Sonic Potential
duo performance with Lisa Mezzacappa, bass and dancer/choreographer Kara Davis

Thrilled to join an illustrious cohort of musicians who have contributed music performances this fall as part of the Contemporary Jewish Museum's exhibition of the work of California visual artist, Annabeth Rosen. I'll be performing a duo with dancer/choreographer Kara Davis, a master improviser and deep artistic thinker. I've wanted to work with Kara on a project for a very long time, I'm really looking forward to our collaboration.
