This month The Living Earth Show duo of guitarist Travis Andrews and percussionist Andy Meyerson will be returning to the Center for New Music (C4NM), following up on their Switchboard Presents appearance there this past February. This time the occasion is a fundraiser for their next major project. This will involve combining their groundbreaking (and sometimes outrageous) approach to repertoire with both innovative contemporary dance and real-time video projection. The result will be an evening-length work, entitled Do Be, which will be premiered during a weeklong residency at the ODC Theater in March of next year.
The fundraising concert, which, in keeping with Living Earth outrageousness, is entitled Draising Some Fun, will feature The Living Earth Show performing the premiere of a piece that Jacob Cooper composed for this project. They will also perform pieces by Chris Cerrone and Damon Waitkus. The video artist for Do Be is Johan Lindegaard, who will be flying to San Francisco to provide a preview of his contribution to this project. There will also be a preview of the choreography by the Post:Ballet ensemble.
This event will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 16, and is expected to run for about three hours. C4NM is located at 55 Taylor Street, about half a block north of the corner of Market Street. All tickets are $40 and are available in advance online through an Eventbrite event page.
