Berkeley-reared, Juilliard-trained pianist, composer, activist and writer Samora Abayomi Pinderhughes gained international attention with the release of his searing 2016 debut album The Transformation Suite, a multimedia project that evolved in tandem with the national movement focusing on black lives cut short by violence. The New York-based composer returns to the Bay Area to present I’m Still Here, a concert combining pieces from his past works and excerpts from The Healing Project, a work in progress. The concert encompasses an array of approaches, from intimate vocal moments to spoken word pieces to group improvisations featuring a large ensemble.

  • 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.'"
