Body to Noise: The Music of Amadeus Regucera, John MacCallum, and Toshio Hosokawa, feat. Stacey Pelinka, flutes

Taken as an evening-length experience, the pieces of Body to Noise present diverse ways in which the work of the physical human body can be translated to sound and how music can shape or be shaped by the body. At the center of this exploration is Bay Area-based flutist, Stacey Pelinka who has performed and championed contemporary music by emerging and established composers of our time through her work with the Left Coast Chamber Ensemble and the Eco Ensemble. In Body to Noise, she presents works by composers Amadeus Julian Regucera, John, MacCallum, and Toshio Hosokawa – music that draws on the various aspects of the body’s physiology – and maps it to music.  More...

Grex & Two Aerials

An evening of cutting-edge Bay Area sounds and songs, featuring incendiary art rock duo Grex and indie/experimental band Two Aerials.

In biological terms, a “grex” is an entity composed of several smaller organisms. Grex (the band) explores the meeting point between the raw power of psychedelia, garage rock, and industrial hip-hop and the dark outer reaches of noise and free jazz. Grex features Karl Evangelista & Rei Scampavia.

Two Aerials (Crystal Pascucci + Mark Clifford, w/Brett Carson & Jordan Glenn) features song-based, rhythmic compositions with voice, cello, vibraphone, and electronic underpinnings. The band’s sweet, complex song structures embody many genres of musical expression with ease.  More...

Arrington de Dionyso and Ben Bennett channel the ecstatic moment through strikingly limited physical and musical materials. Saxophonist Arrington de Dionyso’s perpetually touring moniker THIS SAXOPHONE KILLS FASCISTS is a recombinant performance of touring and local musicians, with the aim of channeling Albert Ayler’s recognition of music as the healing force of the universe. Percussionist Ben Bennett works with a deconstructed set of drums and resonant objects intended to fit in a backpack for bicycle tours and easy transportation. In addition to his live performance practice, Bennett is known for his more than 200 four-hour livestreams of himself called “Sitting and Smiling,” which The Atlantic described as “an extreme version of engagement with the present.”  More...
