Dear µsounders... 

新年快樂! If you're in San Francisco, join 9 musicians + 1 dancer as we welcome the Year of the Horse with a mobile sculpture of unfolding lowercase sound and movement.


[1] MSP/piano — Full Renga-kai (連歌会) (this Sun, 09 Feb @ Outsound's SIMM Series, San Francisco, 7:30pm) + Set 2: Eli Wallace Trio (w Karl Evangelista & Jon Arkin), 8:30pm


Shapeshifting duets based on the Japanese renga collaborative improv poetry form, with dances by Nan Busse

Expanding on John Cage's renga-piece techniques, we've created a kaleidoscopic new renga-based piece Renga-kai (連歌会), for 9 electro-acoustic musicians, plus dance.

Line-up: Nancy Beckman (shakuhachi, small percussion), Tom Bickley (Paetzold contrabass recorder, electronics/radios), Rachel Condry (clarinets), Patti Deuter (piano/toy piano/radio), Ben Kreith (violin), Joe Lasqo (MSP/laptop, piano, mṛdangam & solkaṭṭu), Sangita Moskow (sarod), DeanSantomieri (guitars), Jennifer Wilsey (percussion) + dancer Nan Busse

+ Set 2, 8:30pm: Eli Wallace Trio (w Karl Evangelista, guitar & Jon Arkin, drums)

— From super-cooled lowercase in set 1, to hot jazz from the best of Bay Area jazz’s new generation of players in set 2…
