Nonsequitur presents Bay Area electro-acoustic composer Michael Gendreau. Emerging in the 1980s underground as half of the duo Crawling with Tarts, Gendreau studied composition at Mills College and went on to get a PhD in physics with a specialty in acoustics. Applying his occupational skills to his creative work, he has developed a series of works in which he uses the tools of his trade to activate the very buildings in which he performs, using the materials of the room itself as a large, resonant instrument.
Each month, Nonsequitur and a community of like-minded organizations and artists present ten concerts of adventurous and experimental music in the gorgeous Chapel Performance Space at the Good Shepherd Center: contemporary/post-classical composition, free improvisation and the outer limits of jazz, electronic/electroacoustic music, new instruments, phonography, sound art, and other innovative musics.
