New York-based postminimalist composer Michael Vincent Waller celebrates the release of his new album, “Moments,” on Thursday, October 3, 2019, at 7:30 pm, with a concert at the Martin Luther King Jr. Auditorium of the Santa Monica Main Library, 601 Santa Monica Blvd.
A student of underground icon Lamonte Young, Waller writes surprisingly accessible work which has been compared to Erik Satie. This concert celebrates the release of “Moments,” his third full-length album, on CD, LP, and download. It will include all the compositions from the album, performed by the same musicians: pianist R. Andrew Lee, renown for his recordings of some of the most demanding large-scale minimalist repertoire, and percussionist William Winant, a collaborator of John Zorn, Sonic Youth, the Eclipse Quartet, Mr. Bungle, Lou Harrison, Merce Cunningham, and countless other artists. Albums will be for sale after the show.

The Santa Monica Public Library is the first public library to offer this service to its cardholders. Soundwaves is sponsored by the Friends of the Santa Monica Public Library.
