Submerged Queer Spaces: Music and Architectural Remains
Live concert and cinematic presentation exploring redeveloped spaces that were once gathering spots of San Francisco's queer community. San Francisco has been a leader in real estate speculation, internet sex, social networking, and the dot com gold rush. A byproduct of long-term and rapid change has been the loss of lower-income, hippy, and queer counterculture. Bars, baths, restaurants, cafes, bookstores and other queer spaces have been submerged and lost, leaving behind faded signs or custom fittings i.e. the stained glass sign of the Rainbow Cattle Company and the etched glass of the Elephant Walk. The Jack Curtis Dubowsky Ensemble, a groundbreaking new music ensemble led by classical and film composer Jack Curtis Dubowsky, combines acoustic instruments, electronic hardware, composed material and structured improvisation. The Ensemble treats analog synth as a rare and unpredictable performance instrument. The Ensemble's contemporary electroacoustic music is performed live with no software or sequencing.
