Sounding Natural: Bioacoustician Bernie Krause Brings Biophony to the Ballet

Ballet is an exaltation of artifice, a dancer its ultimate creation, with limbs that extend in every conceivable direction to describe geometry as neatly as a compass draws a circle on the planar surface of a floor. George Balanchine paid…

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
