**The Active Music Series is hosting our first show since the closing of The Uptown. We will be hosted by Omni Commons in Temescal, Oakland. The show will be earlier than in the past, with doors at 7pm, starting promptly at 7:30pm. We’re super stoked and hope you can celebrate the return of the series with us!**
Samuel Hertz: Sam Hertz is a composer and performer whose work encompasses spatialized electroacoustic music, graphic notation, movement, and video. His work explores embodied sound, flexible structures, and the perceptive faculties of meaning-making, and ranges from fragile, sparse compositions to thick electronic textures. For Active Music Series, he will present a mixture of two composed environments: 'May Lie Weeping at the Sight of Still, Fragile' and 'lovebug,' both for electronics and no-input mixer.
Goddess Aphonic: Dark damaged psychedelia that is not so much flying into the sun as it is drowning in the concrete. Direct and sharp compositions that are heavily influenced by modern noise, no wave and free jazz.
Inner Ear Brigade (IEB) is an ensemble of musicians based in the San Francisco Bay Area who play a unique mix of progressive rock, free jazz, experimental pop, all delivered through their originally detailed compositions and arrangements. The music is “fun, happy, accessible, and proggy.” Steeped with a vintage analog sensibility, effects processing, and synthesizers, IEB crafts their sounds from “RIO" elements (Rock In Opposition), Canterbury (Sound), and Zappa”. IEB is Bill Wolter (guitar and compositions), Ivor Holloway (sax), Eli Wallace (keyboards), Steven Wright (bass), and Christopher Lauf (drums).
