Rhys Chatham's A Secret Rose
Other Minds will present the West Coast Premiere of Rhys Chatham's awe-inspiring work for 100 electric guitars, A Secret Rose, at 7 p.m. on Sunday, November 17 at Richmond's Craneway Pavilion. Led by composer/guitarist Rhys Chatham, credited with creating a new type of urban music by fusing early 1960s minimalism with the relentless, elemental fury of punk rock, this large-scale performance features an international team of section leaders working in concert with amateur and professional guitarists from all over the Bay Area and beyond. The performance will cover a wide range between minimal rock and roll grooves and hushed, lush ambience - the sound of 100 guitars playing as quietly as possible. The guitar orchestra will be joined by a local rhythm section featuring Jordan Glenn (drums) and Lisa Mezzacappa (bass).
Doors will opens at 5:30 for the performance at 7 to allow for concertgoers to eat, drink and enjoy the view. There will be a bar and food trucks available, as well as on-site restaurant Assemble
