Sat 10/20 4:00 PM Taube Atrium Theater [401 Van Ness Ave SF]
For our season-opening concert, we offer a special celebration of the music of Elliott Carter. Our "on STAGE Series" features large-ensemble contemporary classical works of the most influential and innovative composers of the 20th and 21st centuries. Carter was the grandest of the grand American composers from the 20th century, who lived beyond his 100th birthday and yet wrote music that was fresh, inventive, and forward-looking to the very end of life. We welcome our newly arrived artistic director, Eric Dudley, with a program featuring three of Carter’s works, including the rhythmically energetic and emotionally powerful "Penthode" for twenty players. Complementing Carter’s enduring voice will be a wry work by the young American composer, Tobin CHODOS, written for an instrumentation uniquely drawn from Carter’s "Penthode," plus Canadian composer Sabrina SCHROEDER’s "Bone Games/Shy Garden," an essay in the sensuality of noises. The series will begin with our popular How Music is Made Composer Talk and Open Rehearsal with composer Tobin Chodos.  More...

Out of this emerges a happily subversive work of art.

Performing live at The Laundry, an intimate art house and tech coworking environment, Stucky will be present with accordion, percussion, vocals and live image projection. This is followed by experimental new music composer Chris Brown utilizing compositions for piano, and percussion instruments with interactive electronics and custom built electro-acoustic sonic instruments.  More...

Invisible Bird

A guitar, trumpet, and drum trio collectively led by three engaging and unique artists from the Bay Area and Colorado; Scott Amendola, Shane Endsley, and Dave Devine. Invisible Bird was formed in 2017 and is releasing it's debut album, Flutter to Fuzz, in the Spring of 2018. The group broadly employs the use of electronics to branch out from the raw acoustic trio sound. Trumpet and guitar take turns covering bass lines and all three players create swirling digital textures with a hefty collection of boutique stomp boxes. The three distinct compositional voices in the group craft original music that transport the listener from rootsy back beats to anthemic indie rock to acoustic modern jazz trio to ambient electronica. Invisible Bird also reinvents classic repertoire from artists like Nick Drake an Joni Mitchell and toys with new hits from artists like Bruno Mars and Rihanna. The debut album features cameos from special guests Sam Amidon and Orenda Fink (Azure Ray). Look for the group to be on the road starting in June of 2018!  More...

A night with ruth weiss
Born in Germany in 1928 and escaping fascist occupation from Austria in 1939, founder of jazz beat poetry, ruth weiss began experimenting with jazz and poetry in Chicago in 1948. Later she lead the series at The Cellar in San Francisco in 1956 that would propel her contemporaries Jack Kerouac, Neal Cassady and others to world wide recognition. In 1996 writer Barbara Knight helped to propel ruth onto the world stage with her book "Women of the Beat Generation: The Writers, Artists and Muses at the Heart of a Revolution"
Now at 90 years her unique invention is going strong throughout the world today. weiss spells her name in lowercase as such as a symbolic protest against "law and order," since in her birthplace of Germany all nouns are spelled capitalized.
She will perform a quartet set with Hal Davis - log, Doug O'Connor - double bass, Rent Romus - saxophones/flutes and a duo set with Doug Lynner - Mystery Serge Synth  More...
