The Turquoise Yantra Grotto is a house concert series for avant improvisers and invented instrumentalists with a focus on ethno-modernism and extended techniques. We hold a monthly event which is part concert, part art opening and part social club, near glen canyon in San Francisco. Chinese tea service in the planted atrium offers guests an opportunity to mingle among a menagerie of (rescued) tropical birds and unique invented instruments including the Gamelon Piano (an upright retuned with 2 Indonesian scales and a set of haunting bell tones) and the Superb Metaliphone ( with over 20 bells cut from high pressure gas cylinders, floating bowls, tuned chimes, harmonic rods and a bowed steel plate).
