Join us at the reception for Victoria Shen’s Zero Player Piano, the latest exhibit at C4NM’s Window Gallery! Reception at 6 followed by talk/demo by Shen at 7

Victoria Shen is a sound artist, experimental music performer, and instrument-maker based in San Francisco.

Shen’s sound practice is concerned with the spatiality/physicality of sound and its relationship to the human body. Her music features analog modular synthesizers, vinyl/resin records, and self-built electronics. Eschewing conventions in harmony and rhythm in favor of extreme textures and gestural tones, Shen uses what she calls “chaotic sound” to oppose signal and information, eluding traditionally embedded meaning.

Join us for our second installment of The Opus Project featuring special guest pianist, Allegra Chapman! We feature contemporary Bay Area composers and canon repertory that is lesser known and classified by catalogue number. It is a great mix of classical and contemporary, vocal and instrumental chamber music.

This concert features local Bay Area composer Vance Maverick and Schoenberg’s monumental Op. 2 songs. Vance will be in attendance and you will be treated to the immense talent of local contemporary music powerhouse, pianist Allegra Chapman. We also have wonderful selections from well-known AND lesser-known composers, such as Schubert, Alburger, Gabriella Smith, and Rimsky-Korsakov. Come and be delighted by our wonderful musicians – we have vocal music, instrumental solos and chamber music – there really is something for everyone! This concert is child-friendly and will be more interactive than your typical concert experience – come to learn about and enjoy this wonderful music.
