Saturday, September 21st – 8:00pm
Pitreleh / Tashi Wada & Charles Curtis

Tonight, ISSUE presents the live debut of Pitreleh— a new collaboration of Duane Pitre and Eleh. Both acclaimed in their own right, these two American electronic musicians come together to excavate shrouded nuances of sound, using precision tunings to uncover the depths of the harmonic series. The esteemed cellist Charles Curtis returns, performing works by San Francisco composer Tashi Wada, whose elegantly constructed tunings engage psycho-acoustic and “direct listening” experiences.
