VERNACULAR VISIONS

  • San Francisco Center for New Music 55 Taylor Street San Francisco, CA, 94102 United States (map)

A 35mm slide show of found photographs featuring live improvised musical accompaniment

with Jacob Felix Heule, Aprille Tang, Lisa Mezzacappa & Tania Chen. 

The third (and final) installment in a series of screenings that Vernacular Visions* will be presenting as part of a 3 month residency at the Center for New Music (September - November), co-curated by Justin Rhody and Tania Chen.

At each performance a 35mm slideshow of found photographs will be projected while two small groupings of musical improvisers (from both Oakland and San Francisco) interpret & accompany the images with a live soundtrack. At the end of the night there will be a collaborative set between all of the musicians (who have never performed together prior and most likely do not even know each other).
