Lost and Found 

Wednesday, Dec 25 2013

Every blink of the sun into the horizon brings the opportunity to meditate on change. Change is the slippery basis for Mary Armentrout's wandering site-specific performance installation, reveries and elegies, showing every weekend this month at sundown before it crosses the globe to Roehampton University in London. Armentrout experiments with the notion of the lonely figure in "extreme landscapes," using sonic compositions by Pamela Z and Evelyn Ficarra that discover scores in the sentence: "Life is so strange." Armentrout invites the audience to ponder the fixity of craft and the modifications of circumstance, the self and the stranger in the solo figure, the effects of choice on experience, and the possibility of repetition in a changing environment. Ian Winters' video installation, reverie of dislocation / perambulation, will be shown in conjunction.

Fridays, Saturdays. Starts: Jan. 4. Continues through Jan. 26, 2014

  • 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.'"
