On Structure (Natacha Diels and Jessie Marino) presents their latest work “The Portal,” a fully staged multimedia performance created, designed, and performed by the duo. Chris Peck is a composer, computer musician, and improviser presenting a new work for projection and sound.
String Noise (Conrad Harris and Pauline Kim Harris, violins) plays original works and arrangements of punk covers by Eric Lyon to include Bad Brains, Violent Femmes, Deerhoof, Radiohead, Black Flag, and the Germs from the album “The Book of Strange Positions” released on Northern Spy Records and a NEW version of Stockhausen Tierkreis for two violins.
Joseph Davancens (contrabass), Weston Olencki (trombone), and Andrew C. Smith (electronics, Fender Rhodes) perform Catherine Lamb’s monumental work matter/moving, alongside contemplative music by Craig Shepard and Larry Polansky, plus highly active solo pieces by Joseph Davancens and Timothy McCormack.
Laura Steenberge and Weston Olencki bring a new conception of what a wind instrument could be to Radius Gallery in Santa Cruz.
Lightbulb Ensemble (Oakland/Santa Cruz) performs on custom-built metallic and wooden bar instruments, built and tuned by ensemble director Brian Baumbusch after years of immersion into Balinese gamelan and its music.
