MOTOKO HONDA + DANNY KAMINS + JORDAN GLENN
TASNEEM KHAN + SKYLER LEE BAYSA + NAOMI HO
Pianist MOTOKO HONDA and saxophonist DANNY KAMINS (saxophones) first met and played together at Moody Center for the Arts, Houston, Texas in 2018 for an event celebrating Graphic Scores and Avant-Garde Jazz. This concert is their first long-awaited musical reunion with the addition of local drum master JORDAN GLENN who also performs in Hondas Simple Excesses Quartet. These seasoned improvisers/composers, fluent in a wide range of musical languages, can take you on an exciting sonic adventure going from textural and experimental soundscapes to unexpected rhythmic and melodic constructs.
Cellist NAOMI HO performs works by TASNEEM KHAN and SKYLER LEE BAYSA: Cello Suite - a collection of musical ideas inspired by Bach's second cello suite and Benjamin Britten's Suite for cello. The work uses sounds derived from vocalization techniques used in its creation. meditation on memory is an exploration of Javanese Gamelan music, storytelling, and vocalizations. Two Sarons will be accompanied by the voice relaying a transcribed sonic narrative.

QUINTETO LATINO presents three works: Gabriela Ortiz Puzzle-Tocas, Orlando Jacinto Garcias multiple winds in the distance, and a QL commission, C U Z A four nocturnes for wind quintet, by Felipe Nieto-Sáchica.
Happy to share this concert with long-time colleagues from Quinteto Latino, BRUNO RUVIARO will play a set of live coding electronic improvisations based on reworked samples of Brazilian music.
Since 2004 QUINTETO LATINO has grown from a classical wind ensemble exclusively performing music from Latin America to a regionally and nationally recognized music education and advocacy organization with a mission to disrupt racial and economic disparities within the classical music field by championing past, present, and future contributions by Latino composers and musicians. The quintet has commissioned numerous works, expanding the body of woodwind quintet repertoire. Quinteto Latino is flutist Diane Grubbe, oboist Kyle Bruckmann, clarinetist Leslie Tagorda, bassoonist Shawn Jones and Armando Castellano, founder and French hornist. (Season guest artist Jamael Smith replaces bassoonist Shawn Jones for this performance.)
BRUNO RUVIARO is an Oakland-based Brazilian electronic musician and composer. He teaches music at Santa Clara University, where he founded SCLOrk (the Santa Clara Laptop Orchestra). Much of his music utilizes other musical sources as raw material -- from Brazilian popular music to Classical sources, directly or indirectly through sampling, quotations, allusions, or collage.

ERIC GLICK RIEMAN
ANGELA EDWARDS presents Invoke: Parte 2, an aleatory score in the form of a card game. The deck consists of 30 text and 10 visual cards. In this case, the conductor chooses cards for the players and determines the length of time each card is played. The specifics of the card and the order is left to fate. Players include: ALEXANDRA BUSCHMAN-ROMAN, voice; MATT INGALLS, clarinets; KANOKO NISHI, koto; BRAN(..)POS, electronics; and MITCH STAHALMANN, flute. Edwards also performs her electro-acoustic solo project, SHARKIFACE.
ERIC GLICK RIEMAN offers a piece for ensemble that includes improvisation with friends from the SOUTH BERKELEY CHAMBER ENSEMBLE (Masha Albrecht, violin; Tracy Randolph, English horn; Laurence Lewis, viola). Reiman also performs his explorative solo work for prepared and augmented Rhodes electric piano -- an instrument designed to show off the mechanical sounds of the Rhodes piano that are usually unheard.
Digging out after Covid, I have this feeling like I did when it had just snowed when I lived in the Midwest. The ground is new, the landscape is changed, and I can choose what to do. There is a new space here.
In this case, I have put together an ensemble to play my piece, "Broken Ice Slides Down The Frozen Sea (2016), which seemed relevant. Inspired by a sound (my kids throwing slabs of ice as large as they can pick up down an icy hill of frozen water in Maines Frenchmans Bay), but not referential in a physical sense, this piece is about memory, loss, and a hint of forboding. The sense that the ice is about to break, and this is a harbinger of the next situation. -- EGR
