Soundwave ((5)): Revelation Zen
Co-presented by SF Zen Center featuring performances by En, Sean McCann (Los Angeles) and Marielle V. Jakobsons. Curated by Danny Paul Grody. Co-sponsored by The Bold Italic
Soundwave Humanities invites you to discover the power of Zen with collaborative Zen-inspired meditative electro acoustic performances and introductions to meditations and Zen practice in the beautiful Julia Morgan-designed settings of the San Francisco Zen Center. Sound artist and violinist Jakobsons begins with a haunting performance in the Buddha Hall using the contained energy of tranquility in music to create a performance that transforms into a strong meditational provocation. Musician McCann continues in the open-air courtyard gardens interlacing a richly textured ambience with blissful string and synthesizer arrangements, each piece balancing on a unique instrumental axis. West Coast dream-drone unit En ends the night in the Dining Room with acoustic koto used across the stereo spectrum and a looping guitar creating the haze of a beautiful, slowly shifting drone, creating an epic slow-burner that reaches heights both angelic and cacophonous.
