      Details:

      For the past decade composer/producer/saxophonist Rent
      Romus has brought unique New Sonic events to the Bay
      Area interpreting the writings of the dark fathers of
      American Horror and Science Fiction.
      This year he brings three driving literary forces
      together with Bay Area experimental artists for one
      night of extraordinary musical exploration.
      FATHER, SON, HOLY GHOST refers not only to the three
      writers most influential in American history, but also
      to the connection that these writers had with each
      other.
      Lovecraft has been sited as being heavily influenced
      by Poe and in turn Phil K. Dick influenced by
      Lovecraft and Poe.
      This will be the tenth year that Romus has presented
      interpretive music to Poe.

      About the bands:
      The E.A. Poe Screaming Orchestra has taken on many
      forms in the past decade. All of which offered a new
      and exiting interpretation to Poe�s works in a light
      not usually attempted; free improvisation within the
      theme work of his short stories and poems. This year
      the stark elements of the acoustic strings will
      showcase the set. Most of the players have been part
      of one or more of Romus� SciFi/Horror presentations.
      Adding this year both the theatrical expertise of
      vocalist Dina Emerson who has had years of experience
      working with such artists as Meridith Monk and Cirque
      Du Solie. In addition Jim Ryan one of the most stark
      poets of the area bringing 40 years of experience from
      the beat era to present day will haunt the room with
      his edgy delivery. All in all this should be one of
      the best presentations of Poe and New Sonic Music to
      date.

      Tri-Cornered Tent Show
      Almost everyday in the news there are stories about
      how a group of scientists after so many decades of
      painstaking research and work create a new drug or
      make new discoveries, but how many times does one read
      about musicians that have done the same thing?

      A trio of experimental improvisers known as
      Tri-Cornered Tent Show has done just that. It has
      taken them the last part of the twenty first century
      to present of dedicated practice, research, and
      patience that brings them to the world.

      Their musical journey began with initial research
      using the ancient anti-deluvian technology of
      electronics from the 70�s. Through methodical
      deciphering of the Lovcraft short story �The music of
      Eric Zann�, other related stories expanded upon
      Lovecraft�s Greater Chthulu Mythos, they began
      recording free improvisation and orchestrated sound
      sculpture over those 25+ years to create the project
      at large.


      PKD Vortex
      "Another killer release from sax shaman Rent Romus,
      this time it's music inspired by the writings of
      Philip K. Dick. Wide-ranging and mind-bending live
      recordings. Romus should by now be as well-known as
      David S. Ware or John Zorn, so catch up, comrades."
      -Cactus, KUSF San Francisco

      In 1998 Romus began the Vortex PKD Project first in a
      series of musical adventures merging visionary science
      fiction with exploratory new music. This unique and
      original concept of vortex music draws inspiration
      from a vast array of Science Fiction authors with an
      emphasis on Philip K. Dick. Within pop culture
      reference Phil�s work made movies such as Blade
      Runner, Total Recall, Screamers, and Minority Report
      possible. In fact most Sci-fi from the last fifty
      years must give credit to this dark master of pulp
      fiction. With the exception of a few music scores to
      film there have been few new cutting edge projects
      reflecting the transmigration of Phil K. Dick. Direct
      composed and performed improvised music inspired by
      his writing and ranting are virtually nonexistent. The
      compositions presented reflect the feelings and
      visuals created by the author translated by the
      ensemble into new sonic explorations.
