The L@TE: Friday Night series at the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (BAMPFA), is soon to conclude the current season with the final three shows for November and December, and one show from BAMPFA’s E@RLY series.
This coming Friday, BAMPFA presents a solo concert by Evan Ziporyn, UC Berkeley alumnus and founding member of the Bang on a Can All-Stars, and an influential clarinetist and composer, whose compositions had been performed by people including Yo Yo Ma and the Knonos Quartet. His show will be preceded by a RE@DS program by San Francisco writers Ava Koohbor and Jackson Meazle. Next on November 15th is Power Struggle, where front man Nomi draws upon his immigrant upbringing and nomadic lifestyle, in leading his group in his poignant lyrics and astute political analysis. Their show is preceded by a RE@DS program by UC Berkeley English department candidate Claire Marie Stancek and author Lynn Xu.
November 17th is an E@RLY show by Yoshi Wada, a Fluxus artist who uses an unusual mixture of instruments including acoustic sirens, alarm bells, bagpipe, and reed organ. He will be performing a unique, live sound experience, collaboration with his son, composer Tashi Wada. And finally on December 13th, the current season of L@TE: Friday Nights concludes with Luciano Cheesa and His Intonarumori, whose modern re-creations of seminal “noise instruments” of the Italian Futurists, are designed to produce music that mimic the modern landscape. This show is preceded by a RE@DS program by writers Jaime Cortez, Sara Larson, Serena Le, Julien Poirier.
