BAMPFA presents a 35mm film print of Jon Coney's SPACE IS THE PLACE starring Sun Ra, Barbara Deloney, Raymond Johnson, Erika Leder,

Inspired by Sun Ra’s 1971 UC Berkeley course The Black Man in the Cosmos and filmed in Oakland, San Francisco, San Jose, and Richmond, “Space Is the Place is an otherworldly frolic combining intergalactic bebop with riffs on black liberation. Director Coney's boldly mystical blaxploitation film takes to heart Sun Ra's cosmic philosophy of music as a liberating force. Performed by The Intergalactic Myth-Science Solar Arkestra, Sun Ra's music suffuses the hip-edelic atmosphere. Whimsical, funky, and alchemically whack, Space Is the Place takes on Afro-liberation, extraterrestrial activism, and whatever else enters the ever–expanding mind of Sun Ra" (Steve Seid).  More...

The Jacob Szekely Trio with cellist Jacob Szekely. With the Jacob Szekely Trio, Szekely has created a unique musical tapestry that incorporates the richness of jazz improvisation, the structure of classical music and the edginess of rock into its own alchemy which Szekely calls rock chamber jazz.

A risk taker who generally went with the first takes in the studio, Szekely has created an album that expands the sonic culture of the cello and showcases the influences of classical, jazz, funk, rock and East Indian music. His compositions are highly complex, yet always have groove at their core. Szekely explains " I've always been interested in pushing my instrument and myself. I was inspired by Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Jimi Hendrix early on but didnt tell my teachers at conservatory, because that didnt jibe with the classical tradition. It always felt like I was trying to bust out of the cello closet! '  More...

Inbal Segev: Cello & Electronics by Women Composers Featuring Music by Anna Clyne, Missy Mazzoli, Gity Razaz, & Augusta Read Thomas

New York-based cellist Inbal Segev, known for her "glowing, burnished tone" (The Washington Post) will perform a concert celebrating music for solo cello by women composers, including works by Anna Clyne, Augusta Read Thomas, Missy Mazzoli, and the West Coast premiere of a concerto for cello and electronics written for Segev by Gity Razaz called Legend of Sigh. Before Segev’s performance of Legend of Sigh, Donato Cabrera, Music Director of the California Symphony and Las Vegas Philharmonic, will read the Azerbaijani folktale on which the piece is based. Segev is in California to perform the world premiere of composer Dan Visconti's cello concerto written for her, Tangle Eye, with the California Symphony on Sunday, May 7. Equally committed to new repertoire and masterworks, Segev brings interpretations that are both unreservedly natural and insightful to the vast range of music she performs.  More...

Burnt Dot is an experimental noise and improvisation ensemble founded by Sarah Belle Reid (trumpet) and Ryan Gaston (modular synthesizer). Join us for the release of our cassette Constant Ballet and the premiere of a new audiovisual work Rare Earth for Desert Plant, with digital artist Sahir Khan.

The Rare Earth hypothesis states that complex life is the product of an intricate series of coincidental cosmic conditions. The unlikelihood for these precise circumstances to align suggests that intelligent life is rare elsewhere in the universe—if it exists at all. But perhaps complex life is more varied than we know to look for. It might even be all around us, undetected or simply unnoticed.
An audiovisual performance piece inspired by the emergence of organized systems in chaotic environments, Rare Earth for Desert Plant is a ritual plea for interstellar contact. Using augmented trumpet, modular synthesizers, interactive visuals, and ceremonial objects, a beacon for intelligent communication is formed and activated.
