Thu 5/18 7:30 PM CCRMA [660 Lomita Dr. Stanford]
Join us for a multimedia, robotic, and generally chaotic doubleheader concert with artists Bryan Jacobs and On Structure.

The Portal is a fully staged multimedia performance created, designed and performed by the performance duo On Structure (Natacha Diels and Jessie Marino). This 30 minute work of choreographed performance rituals uses live electronic sound, video projection, and DIY animatronics to stage a joyfully chaotic world which use folkloric songs, televised dramas, and amusement park scenography to tell the hidden mythologies of the Uncanny Valley. The Portal is a performance platform; part Video Game, part Ritual Alter, part Twilight Zone. On stage, the two heroines are jostled between the analog and digital worlds - preparing, practicing and perfecting their choreographed rituals as they move through different visual mediums, electronic sound worlds, and dreamscapes. Their playful actions respond to, mimic, or comment on their visual surroundings creating playfully menacing dramatic spaces where the line between reality and virtual reality is flickering in and out of focus.

Bryan Jacobs will present a menagerie of robotic and mechanical instruments - for more information on his various creatures see: http://bryanjacobsmusic.com.  More...

Fri 5/19 8:00 PM Center for New Music [55 Taylor St SF]
Aluminati – David Samas, Tom Nunn, Ian Saxton and Derek Drudge - presents its premiere performance using all metal instruments including aluminum rods suspended on inflated balloons (harmonic rods), stroke rods, end-struck rods, heat-bent rods (zing trees), bowls, chaseplate and other metallic paraphernalia. The harmonic and enharmonic chorus of tones are heard through varyingly dense harmonic/percussive textures with melodic elements, hocketing and other contrapuntal relationships, within an architectural compositional context.

RTD3 - Ron Heglin (trombone, voice), Tom Nunn (original instruments) and Doug Carroll (cello) - have played together for decades. Ron speaks, sings and chants songs and stories from unrecognizable languages. Tom brings his own unique sounds of an alien kind of music with his original instruments. Doug celloistically sings the melodies of a mind and soul divested of any sense of normalcy!  More...

Visual artist LATIFA MEDJDOUB and sound artist HACO collaborate on Eurythmy#2, a social performance-concert at the Museum of Performance + Design inspired by nature’s energy and rhythmical order that is inviting an active public to reflect on the multiple levels of interconnectedness between individuals and networks. At the performance, the public will use sculptural modular elements and collaborate on the construction of a vast ephemeral flexible architecture in relation to live environmental sound designed by Japanese artist HACO. Through this unparalleled artistic experience, participants will gradually be transported within the material space of an expansive soft fiber-sculpture and the immaterial space of open ended environmental sound.  More...

Song & Dance Trio: Karl Evangelista-guitar, Jordan Glenn-drums, Cory Wright-baritone sax

Oakland art rock trio Grex and LA trumpeter Dan Clucas perform a powerful, drastic reworking of John Coltrane’s A Love Supreme, refracting the mighty saxophonist’s suite through a gauntlet of noise rock, alternative hip-hop, and other latter day musics. Karl Evangelista's longstanding Song & Dance Trio--a bass-less blend of modern jazz textures and roving, garage-y energy--opens the evening.  More...

Moe! Staiano Ensemble

Moe! Staiano is an Oakland-based composer/drummer whose large ensembles, Moe! Staiano Ensemble and Moe!kestra!, have performed in both Europe and the United States. His dense, heavy and intense compositions often include unconventional instrumentation, such as sirens, u-bolts, prepared guitars and wine glasses, as well as traditional orchestral and rock instruments. His composition, "Away Towards the Light," is an exploration of tonal interplay and contrasting rhythms for nine electric guitars, bass and drums composed in three movements, and is his first composition for multiple electric guitars.
