Sarah Davachi

Sarah Davachi (b. 1987, Canada) is a composer and performer whose work is concerned with the close intricacies of timbral and temporal space, utilizing extended durations and considered harmonic structures that emphasize gradual variations in texture, overtone complexity, psychoacoustic phenomena, and tuning and intonation. Her compositions span both solo and chamber ensemble formats, incorporating a wide range of acoustic and electronic instrumentation. Similarly informed by minimalist and long-form tenets, early music concepts of intervallic and modal harmony, as well as experimental production practices of the electroacoustic studio environment, in her sound is an intimate and patient experience that lessens perceptions of the familiar and the distant.  More...

Hyères
Luciano Chessa, composer, performance artist and author of a book-length music history, "Luigi Russolo Futurist: Noise, Visual Arts & the Occult" enters the Peacock Lounge with a new project, Hyères. He may be known for huge performances, pipe organ pieces, operatic scale works, collaborations with Blixa Bargeld, Ellen Fullman, Pauline Oliveros and the like, but this is a rare chance to hear him in a small setting. He may come forth with sleigh bells, hearing aids and a megaphone or maybe with a virtual Aardvark Synth washing across acoustic guitar as his psychfolk baritone vocals resonate in, of course, Italian. However he shows, you'll marvel at where this goes.

Sult
Jacob Felix Heule has friends in cold places, when they cross the Atlantic we warm them on audience-heat inside the Peacock Lounge. Contrabass, guitar and bass drum are magnified by microphone and focused back onto the audience, a feedback loop of spreading intensity as subtle harmonics combust, scorching the floor, softening metal, licking the rafters 'til the room is no skin, all smiles.

Musician and seeker Suki O'Kane returns to Shapeshifters to enact 10,000 things, a score for durational performance, to mark the fall equinox. The piece starts 10,000 seconds before, and lasts a minimum of 10,000 seconds after the equinox itself, which will be observable at 6:03pm Pacific Daylight Time. Expect ritual acts of body, speech and mind, walking meditation, live cinema, durational sound, food, sunset, civil twilight, and the setting of a waning crescent moon.

The show starts early at 6pm (the equinox arrives at 6:03pm) with a solo set from Ernesto Diaz-Infante, complementary autumnal food and drink at dark o'clock, and at 8pm two sets: the first Phoebe Tooke leading a visual conduction for an improvising ensemble comprised of Dyemark, Wayne Grim, Jacob Felix Heule, Suki O'Kane, Adria Otte, and special guests; the second reconvenes the artists from the 2022 spring equinox realization of the 10,000 things score enacted on the back deck of Shapeshifters with Alfonso Alvarez, Dyemark, Suki O'Kane, and special guests.

THOMAS CARNACKI is a variably-sized organism that has been trundling forward for well over a decade, having been as many as eight individuals, and as few as one. (Or, in some instances, none at all.) Tonight’s instantiation will be on the more modest end of that spectrum, being Cheryl E. Leonard and Gregory Scharpen. GRALE has performed as a multi-faceted and cinematically rooted ensemble, morphing its electric shadows along with its shifting lineups. Initially a duo of Dale Sophiea (MX-80 Sound, O-Type, etc.) and Gregory Hagan (Pale Reverse, Thomas Carnacki Ensemble, Common Eider King Eider, etc.) that sprung from a series of after-hours underground film and music salons in Berkeley.  More...
