Our experimental music series in Santa Cruz continues with Laura Steenberge’s Chant Etudes and Weston Olencki’s performance of HoneyDripper by Michelle Lou (May 14, Radius Gallery). Lightbulb Ensemble performs their evening-length work Mikrokosma for custom-built and tuned instruments inspired by Balinese gamelan music (May 27, Radius Gallery). Finally, the Happy Valley Band brings their machine deconstructions of popular tunes back to Santa Cruz, alongside Zachary James Watkins’s harmonic series drone constructions (June 1, Don Quixote’s International Music Hall).
Finally, Indexical needs your support! As we continue to expand this series into a hub for local and touring experimental musicians, your support is critical to our ongoing success. We hope to raise $1,000 over the next few weeks for artist fee guarantees, venue rental, and marketing efforts to help us grow and plan future events. Indexical is a fiscally sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Contributions for the purposes of Indexical must be made payable to Fractured Atlas and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
