Wed Nov 14 2012 Gargantius Effect + Kinda Green.
Gargantius Effect is the brainchild of Murray Campbell (violin, oboe and electronics) and Randy McKean (reeds). Like the Stanislaw Lem story of the same name, in which armies of warring soldiers are linked together to form a peaceful, blissfully-aware omni-mind, so, too, these long-time collaborators channel their contrarian impulses into synchronized bouts of free improvisation, compositional constructs and mechanized mayhem. For this show, they're celebrating the recent electronic release "GE+1+2+3 (Nor Cal, 08-2011)" by adding the symbiotic duality of special guests Kinda Green (Tom Djll and Tim Perkis) into the equation. At Berkeley Arts, 2133 University Ave., Berkeley CA. 8pm.

Improvisations with Matt Ingalls, (clarinets), Scott Walton, (bass), Tom Dill (trumpet) and yours truly. I’m excited about this group. Sharing the bill is Cheryl E. Leonard, who will astound us in some new way, perhaps inspired by her recent travels in Antarctica; rocks, water, ice, tree parts — who knows what? — may be involved. Tom’s is a great cozy good feeling house concert venue, and has always been very enjoyable every time I’ve gone.

That’s what is going on at this concert with guests Gino Robair - “Energized Surfaces”, Ron Heglin -Voice, Tim Perkis - Electronics, Jacob Felix Heule - Percussion and Scott Looney - Piano.

IMPROV 21 Rova:Arts is pleased to present Improv:21, a series of “informances” on twenty-first century music that explore the connection between predetermined structure (composition) and performer interpretation (improvisation). Led by master improvisers and composers from the Bay Area and beyond, and hosted by critic and KPFA radio host Derk Richardson, Improv:21 programs look at the many ways of organizing improvisation through a shifting (i.e. “improvised”) combination of onstage lecture and dialogue, musical demonstration and performance, and audience question-and-answer forum. TICKETS: $10 General Admission. Click the E-tix logo or call 415-255-4800 to reserve by phone.

Viv Corringham is based in London and has performed internationally since the early 1980s, recording eleven albums. She works with improvisation, listening, Mediterranean music and soundscapes.

Some reviews of Viv Corringham:

"Corringham's enchanting musical journey…possessed a quality that set the pulses racing." Edwin Pouncey -The Wire

"ethno-cyberpunk diva. (Her) voice is a thing of wonder, ranging from lilting folkiness to speaking-in-tongues wildness" Richard Sanderson- programme notes

"Corringham's affecting performance can be heard either as a still, small individual voice pitted against urban racket, or as a symbiotic duet between her vocalising and a large truck, recorded live in the street."-- The Wire

Sun Mar 13 2005Greenlief/Perkis/Wong/Hikage quartet. 21 grand, oakland.
8pm. Phillip Greenlief (saxophone), Tim Perkis (electronics), Theresa Wong (cello), Shoko Hikage (koto).
Sat Mar 12 2005Droneshift: 40 musicians in shifts, over 4 hours, play a drone. 21grand, Oakland
Show: exactly 7:00pm to 11:00pm Doors: 6:30pm
$8-12 sliding scale

Sick of wanky guitar solos, unintelligible lyrics, cheesily programmed beats, and hard-to-figure-out highbrow ideas? Overreact by coming to DroneShift, where about 40 musicians will present four hours of continuous long tones and unusual textures that wouldn't develop anywhere else!

With a wide variety of musicians from different bay area experimental music communities playing 4 to 10 at a time in overlapping shifts, the music will gradually evolve from lovely all-acoustic moments to sheets of peeling noise and back with many points in between. At times, it will sound like several different instruments are contributing to a single, complex, unique note.

All the funds will go to 21 Grand, a venue that has made huge efforts to provide a place for unusual shows like this one. The current space is going to be turned into condominiums, so we're trying to raise funds for them to move into another space nearby.

Since the music goes nonstop for 4 hours, it will be perfectly normal to get up and walk around while the musicians are playing.

Currently, the musicians are:
