Progammed by Sarah Cahill
An encounter with homemade and experimental instruments. Composer and instrument builder Paul Dresher brings his “omnivorous sensibility” (San Francisco Chronicle) to bear on works for his Quadrachord, joined by innovative percussionist Joel Davel on his Marimba Lumina. In addition, Edward Schocker performs on his own updated version of the glass harmonica, and multi-instrumentalist Laura Inserra creates a rich tapestry for the ears with instruments from around the world. Renowned avant-garde accordionist Guy Klucevsek, who has performed with such luminaries as Laurie Anderson and the Kronos Quartet, explores the extreme expressive range of his instrument.
Plus explore the exhibition galleries and discover simultaneous performances throughout the building.
The visit to the Bay Area by Guy Klucevsek is made possible by the Headlands Center for the Arts.
