      8pm Emergency String (X)tet featuring butoh Kinji Hayashi
      9pm Michael Carreira peforming "CMBLS" a performance piece of thick waves of
      shimmering noise

      Emergency String (X)tet
      Adria Otte, Angela Hsu, Jonathan Segel, violins
      Bob Marsh, Doug Carroll, cellos
      Kanoko Nishi, bass koto
      Tony Dryer, contrabass

      The Emergency String (x)tet rose up from the ashes of too many departures and is
      now stronger and more visionary than ever. The ESX engages in non-structured
      free improvisation. The "X" in the name refers to both the fluctuating number of
      players (4-6) as well as their venture into the unknown at each performance.
      CURRENT MEMBERS for this project: Bob Marsh, cello; Doug Carroll, cello; Adria
      Otte, violin; Angela Hsu, violin, Tony Dryer, bass.

      Kinji Hayashi was raised in Tokyo, Japan. A solo Butoh dancer since 1991, has
      collaborated with numerous artists and groups such as Polish Theater director
      Miroslaw Kocur and San Francisco playwright Helen Pau. He has performed
      throughout the Bay Area with the Asian American Theater Company, Theaterworks,
      and Theater of Yugen. He also toured with HRG in California and with Harupin Ha
      in Japan and the US. He has received Dance Bay Area's Commissioning Project
      Grant, Zellerbach Family Fund, City of Oakland Cultural Arts Division's Creative
      Artist Fellowship, and the Pritzker Foundation Endowed Fellowship. He and Momo
      received a commission from the American Composers Forum to perform with composer
      William Ludke.
      Caring for turtles is a source of his inspiration in this fast-paced world.

      CMBLS is a solo project from Michael Carreira: The cymbals are touching at the
      edge, all linked together. With continuous and consistent (not necessarily loud)
      strikes, the whole mass of 30-50 cymbals all vibrate together sending thick
      waves of shimmering noise throughout the room. Slow changing rhythmic and
      timbral variations explore the cymbals' wide sonic range.

      Michael Carreira spent most of his time over the past several years as a drummer
      touring and/or recording with bands including Cryptacize (Asthmatic Kitty),
      Odawas (Jagjaguwar), Donnovan Quinn (Soft Abuse), and Danielson (Secretly
      Canadian).
      In addition to playing drums he's kept busy with a variety of related activities
      including musically mentoring a homeless child, creating a telephone based music
      distribution project called Sonic Supper (featured on NPR’s The Next Big Thing),
      writing a weekly column for NonsenseNYC, and teaching music in several New York
      and Oakland public schools.
