      8pm: The Cardew Choir performs a Luggage
      Store-specific work: "Market and Sixth" by Bob Marsh

      The Cardew Choir is a large vocal performance ensemble
      formed in the San Francisco Bay Area by Kattt Sammon,
      Bob Marsh and Tom Bickley. The group provides an
      exciting intersection between community and
      experimental music, with both professional and
      thoughtful amateur singers. Frequently, the choir
      performs works by Pauline Oliveros, Cornelius Cardew,
      Viv Corringham, along with many unique works composed
      by its members. Tonight's performance will be the
      premiere of "Market and Sixth" by Bob Marsh.

      Born in Salinas, California, Ernesto Diaz-Infante, is
      of Mexican and Native American ancestry. He received
      his BA from the College of Creative Studies at
      University of California, Santa Barbara and his MFA in
      Music Composition from California Institute of the
      Arts. His musical compositions span a broad
      perspective: transcendental piano, noise, avant-garde
      guitar, field recordings, lo-fi four-track
      manipulations, and experimental song. ED-I has
      performed throughout Europe and the United States, and
      his music has been broadcasted internationally. He has
      recorded more than 15 CDs of music and collaborated
      with numerous musicans. In 2000, his composition, I/O
      (for chamber ensemble), was performed by the
      California EAR Unit. He has been awarded residencies
      at the Centre International de Recherche Musicale
      (CIRM) in Nice, France, The Millay Colony for the
      Arts, Villa Montalvo, The Ucross Foundation, among
      others. In 1997, he began Pax Recordings record label
      which is dedicated to the documentation, preservation,
      and contagion of music from the margins of our culture
      and psyches. ED-I curated The Luggage Store Gallery's
      Creative Music Series (2000-2002) night of improvised
      and experimental music. He also co-founded the Big Sur
      Experimental Festival (1999-2004) and San Francisco
      Alternative Music Festival (2000-2003).
      He presently lives with his girlfriend, filmmaker
      Marjorie Sturm, and his baby, Ezra Octavio, in San
      Francisco. He and Marjorie recently formed the Neshama
      Alma Band, a four-track project recorded in their
      living room. They co-conspire and run Pax Recordings.
      Their most recent release is a compilation CD of
      twenty-six artists titled "Voices in the Wilderness:
      Dissenting Soundscapes and Songs of G.W.'s America."
      As well, ED-I is presently exploring and focusing on
      mantra-esque acoustic guitar strumming. For more info
