The SIMM (Static Illusion Methodical Madness) Music Series of adventurous programming curated by Outsound Presents will begin the new year with a concert of solo piano improvisation by Thollem McDonas. McDonas has entitled his program Confluence: Adventurous Music For Building Brain Cells, thus merging the SIMM agenda with his own personal touring experiences. In his own words, those experiences involve “engaging the imagination differently from moment to moment with a long series of unique musical worlds making this a seriously playful sonic discourse, as well as an activity for enhancing brain function.” McDonas promises that he will explain this concept shortly in greater depth in a published treatise, having already written an essay entitled “Deep Listening and the Peripatetic Life of an Improvising Musician” as a contribution to a Festschrift for the 80th birthday of Pauline Oliveros.

The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, January 12. Like all SIMM events, it will take place in the Musicians Union Hall at 116 Ninth Street, near the corner of Mission Street. General admission is $10 with an $8 rate for students and seniors.
