Sun 12/19 4:00 PM Center for New Music [55 Taylor St SF]
This monthly series began in January 2020, was pre-empted after its first two shows by Covid-19, and reawakens this month with the first of two previously curated programs. The program includes sound installations based on field recordings by Maggi Payne and Chris Brown originally created for the Downtown Berkeley BART Plaza, and pieces by Michelle Moeller, and T.D. Skatchit (David Michalak and Tom Nunn) & Company. The musicians will mix their pieces from the center of the space, and the audience is free to choose their own listening location, and to move within the space to hear the music from different vantage points.
