Nick of Time 

Wednesday, Nov 13 2013

Waning light and dour reflections usher in November, the Thursday of the year — it is neither near enough the end to abandon resolutions nor yet time to celebrate the coming of the new. With whales beaching, bellies crammed with plastic, the atmosphere coming to broil, and bee colonies mysteriously failing, the time is ripe for a look at the scourges of the past and their consequences in our uncertain present and doomed future. James Graham and Katherine Hawthorne present new works on the passage of time in Let Us Compare Chronologies. Graham premieres Guilty Survivor, a piece about living as a gay man in San Francisco after the AIDS epidemic of the 1980s, confronting both the melancholy of lost lives and the nostalgia for a lost past of exuberant debauchery. Hawthorne presents Timepiece, a meditation on the order and disorder of time.

  • 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.'"
