Dear µsounders - 

This is to let you know about some great shows starting from next Sun, 24 Aug.

Of special interest to lovers of computer and electronic music will be the incomparable duo of Wobby + Thomas Dimuzio, and a rare appearance by music/software phenomenon, Tom Duff, taking Alvin Lucier's electro-mechanico-sonico Long Thin Wire to the next level with his Wire Machine.

If you'll be in the San Francisco Bay Area, you may find these shows of interest.

I'm honored to curate several shows in Aug at the East Bay’s indispensable focal point for new music, Berkeley Arts Festival; this is #3, onWed 27 Aug.

— Set Ø: Bob Marsh & Evangel King perform window/door/river (a unique site-specific sound+motion piece for cello & dancer, based on Bob's graphic score)

— Set 1: Henry Kuntz & Envision Ensemble.A rare appearance by a daring pioneer of joyously unbounded, infinitely free new world jazz & his new Envision Ensemble, featuring the mathematically impossible Dan Plonsey + past OPEYE members Brian Godchauax, John Kuntz, and Esten Lindgren, who together "move toward an advanced improvisational archetype, one in which multiple independent events may occur while the musicians simultaneously create an experiential musical whole.”

— Set 2: Tom Duff & his Wire Machine take Alvin Lucier’s seminal electro-mechanical composition/installation Music on a Long Thin Wire and run with it, performing Tom's piece, Lucier, Golomb, Gray. Your chakras will be thoroughly cleansed (losslessly, and without spurious outputs).
