Sun 12/05 7:00 PM Center for New Music [55 Taylor St SF]
Anne Hege and Julie Herndon team up for a night of new sounds with original and familiar instruments. Showcasing excerpts from their latest projects including an album for The Tape Machine (an analog, live-looping instrument), The Furies (an opera for laptop orchestra and live vocalists), Shadow Prism (a light-responsive geodesic sphere), and works for extended piano, the concert will explore how instruments and bodies are essential to how we engage with live music performance.

Sun 12/05 7:30 PM Temescal Arts Center [511 48th Street Oakland]
Doors That Only Open in Silence (open participation, non-hierarchical workshop in free improvisation).  The monthly series of improvisation research at Temescal Arts Center continues. Bring your instrument or come to listen. No advance notice needed — just show up. Small groups will be randomly assembled from submitted names immediately before each group plays. We try to keep transition time between groups at a minimum. Over by 10pm. Donations for the venue rental are encouraged.
