Concert Listings Roundup #355

You can read more about why I'm doing listings here. Long story short: This curated and decidedly non-comprehensive list contains nothin' but shows that I am going to/would go to if I had more time.

Special note:

For the past six-and-a-half years, I've faithfully been cranking out these listings every Monday. Because of the unprecedented situation we now find ourselves in, this week's listings remain blank. Stay safe and sheltered.

Livestream nation:

  • The first online edition of Michael Palumbo's Exit Points series was both musically satisfying and well-executed from the technical end of things — no surprise seeing that Palumbo has been working with remote live sound for a while before everyone started switching to livestream mode. Wednesday night's instalment features two electroacoustic improvising ensembles, the first with Mike Hansen, MJ Wright, Bea Labikova, Kavi and Michael Palumbo and the second with Heidi Chan, Yoni Newman, Kieran Maraj, Lex Metcalfe, and Curtis Whittaker. That'll be followed by shorter mini-sets remixing the performers plus some guests.
  • The AMBiENT PiNG are taking their annual Drone Day live show online Saturday night, with a live set from dreamSTATE plus some specially-selected video works.
  • Thin Edge New Music Collective is examining the possibilities of livestreams/distanced musicians with "heard from a distance", streaming on Sunday afternoon. The show will see pianist Cheryl Duvall and cellist Amahl Arulanandam performing works "from 45 seconds to 45 minutes long" by Dai Fujikura, Anna Hostman, Jocelyn Morlock, Nick Storring and Linda Catlin Smith.
