THOMAS CARNACKI is a variably-sized organism that has been trundling forward for well over a decade, having been as many as eight individuals, and as few as one. (Or, in some instances, none at all.) Tonight’s instantiation will be on the more modest end of that spectrum, being Cheryl E. Leonard and Gregory Scharpen. GRALE has performed as a multi-faceted and cinematically rooted ensemble, morphing its electric shadows along with its shifting lineups. Initially a duo of Dale Sophiea (MX-80 Sound, O-Type, etc.) and Gregory Hagan (Pale Reverse, Thomas Carnacki Ensemble, Common Eider King Eider, etc.) that sprung from a series of after-hours underground film and music salons in Berkeley.

Ritual Schizophonia – Gesture shapes both sound and meaning, as revealed in this experimental program for solo harp. From the avant-garde reimagining of a Greek myth to a visceral manifestation of grief, these diverse works are connected by their ceremonial treatment of sound. The movements of the hands at the strings and the feet at the pedals become a choreography of sonic obfuscation, an expressive ritual for exploring meaning in an atmosphere that synthesizes the visual and the sonic.
