② MSP/Synth/+: in 2nd International Puppy Surprise Improv Vortex: Thu 07 May, The Luggage Store, SF(new location)
◉ A well-balanced electro/acoustic improv vortex takes forward the grand tradition of chance-generated small ensembles, pioneered in New Zealand by the Vitamin S collective, and in the U.K. by figures such as Derek Bailey in his Company nights — a format designed to be maximally impervious to advance preparation…
Sounds and players will remain cloaked until just before dropping out of warp. Anything could happen.
Projected line-up, to be loaded dynamically into ensembles: 
— Matt Davignon  ( electronics  |  ringleader | MC )
— Sheila Bosco  ( drums | percussion | electronics | keyboards | vocals | projection | or…)— Ferrara Brain Pan  ( sax )— Philip Everett  ( autoharp | electronics )— Joe Lasqo  ( MSP/laptop  |  synth  |  objects )— Joshua Marshall  ( winds  |  saxes )— Collette McCaslin  ( trumpet )— David Michalak  ( skatchbox | lap-steel guitar )— Mark Pino  ( drums | percussion )— Eli Wallace  ( keyboards )
