November shows

This Wednesday I’m very much looking forward to Voicehandler reprising the live score to Kerry Laitala’s performance cinema work The City Luminous: Electric Salome. Check out this great documentation of a performance at ATA last year:

Wed, Nov 9. 8:00 PM Gray Area [2665 Mission St. SF]
Perpetual Motion, Program Five: Spectres
Kerry Laitala + Voicehandler / Raha Raissnia + Panagiotis Mavridis / John Davis

In evoking liminal states of consciousness through the use of custom-made screens, elaborate projection arrays and multi-planed, layered imagery, the works on this program explore imagined histories, the nature of memories, literal and metaphoric travel and motion. Kerry Laitala’s THE CITY LUMINOUS: ELECTRIC SALOME (with live soundtrack by Voicehandler) celebrates the groundbreaking light/costume/dance innovations of Loie Fuller (1862–1928) as a progenitor of Performance Cinema itself while imagining the fantastical Panama Pacific International Exhibition presented in San Francisco in 1915.

Later in November, my two recurring series:

Tue 11/15 8:30 PM Uptown Nightclub [1928 Telegraph Ave Oakland]
Active Music Series presents:
    •    LAZARUS WALKS: Tim DeCillis, Alex Cohen, Tom Weeks;
    •    BARBEDWIRE: Phillip Greenlief, Gabby Fluke-Mogul, Evelyn Davis;

Sun 11/20 7:30 PM Temescal Arts Center [511 48th Street Oakland]
Doors That Only Open in Silence (open participation workshop in free improvisation)

I’ve been putting a lot of new material up on my Soundcloud page. Long-form free improvisation with Tom Djll, John McCowen, Kanoko Nishi-Smith, Jay Korber, Mark Small, and Marshall Trammell.
