Fri 4/24 8:00 PM Z Space [450 Florida St SF]
The Paul Dresher Ensemble with Amy X Neuburg

They Will Have Been So Beautiful is inspired by photographer Diane Arbus’s quest to discover the epic in what is more often seen as commonplace and mundane. As formulated in her 1963 application to the Guggenheim Foundation, Arbus eloquently and poetically defines her then-revolutionary aesthetic, that the commonplace habits, rituals and social spaces of everyday life hold a meaning and importance that will only be understood in the future, because “they will have been so beautiful.” This visionary (and then controversial) proposition provides the inspiration for our commissioning project.  More...

Apura: Improvised Music for the Revolution
Karl Evangelista (gtr) with Special Guest Andrew Cyrille (dms), Francis Wong (sax), Alexander Hawkins (piano)

***POSTPONED TO DECEMBER***

TICKETS HERE

Filipino-American guitarist/composer Karl Evangelista presents Apura (Tagalog for “Very Urgent”), a thrilling new composition meant to explore the relationship between jazz-based musical improvisation and social transformation in an era of worldwide political upheaval.

Apura uses original musical content, live projection, and spoken word components to tie the revolutionary music of the past to the activist music of the present day, touching on American, South African, and Filipino musical traditions.

Apura unites two veteran musicians, legendary jazz drummer Andrew Cyrille (in for the great Louis Moholo-Moholo) and Asian American Jazz icon Francis Wong, with firebrand pianist Alexander Hawkins (UK) and experimental music powerhouse Evangelista.  More...
