SFSOUND with DAN JOSEPH


Perform works by
OLIVEROS, PISARO, JOSEPH, and SFSOUND


Returning to San Francisco’s Center for New Music for their first concert of 2018, sfSoundGroup presents an evening of experimental and open form compositions with guest composer/performer DAN JOSEPH.

The program will include the late PAULINE OLIVEROS’ classic text score "Earth Ears", Joseph’s "Notes & Queries", selections from Los Angeles based composer MICHAEL PISARO'S "harmony series", and sfSound’s own "Tinnitus Insect Volume Knobs" project that explores the psychoacoustic phenomena of "difference tones" by performing only closely-tuned pitches above 1000Hz.

Appearing in the Bay Area for the first time since 2014, Joseph will perform on hammer dulcimer, with musicians of the sfSoundGroup.
