Part of the 13th annual Outsound New Music Summit, a six-day long festival of innovative Bay Area music, PoetryFreqs is a three-part evening that includes a performance by Beat legend ruth weiss [sic], a set by Doug Lynner, aka synthesizerman, and the debut of a 40-minute work created specifically for this event by Pitta of the Mind, aka poet Maw Shein Win and composer Amanda Chaudhary. "The theme of the first half will be abstract art," they say, "and the second will focus on cinematic distance." Taken alone, any of the three performances is worth the ticket — the absorbing works include collisions of innovation that create a transfixing reverberation inside the listener. Pitta of the Mind combines Win's dreamlike words and matter-of-fact, but somehow distant and at the same time warm (in short: futuristic) readings with Chaudhary's mostly abstract electronic compositions; a new set from the pair is an epic occasion.

  • 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.'"
