Maggi Payne
Too seldom on the stage, Maggi Payne's presence is nonetheless felt deeply, far and wide by any lucky enough to encounter her boundless, truly singular sensibility. An interdisciplinary builder of timbre, light, movement, and objects that entice play, Payne's acoustic and electro-acoustic works often include video, dance, transparencies, and film. She has recordings on more than a dozen different labels and serves as Co-Director of the Center for Contemporary Music at Mills College. Don’t miss this amazing chance to join Maggi Payne in the small sound chamber at Second Act.

Tania Chen
Toy pianist, experimental musician, and free improviser, Tania Chen, brings her found objects, lo-fi electronics, and pianoworks to Second Act. Acclaimed as a foremost performer of compositions by John Cage, Michael Parsons, and Cornelius Cardew, tale of Chen's full range must also include her improvisational duos with Steve Beresford on an album called "Ointment", with Jon Raskin and Bruce Ackley of the Rova Saxophone Quartet. Basically, the best way to grasp this virtuoso's mastery of musical chance and moment is to step directly inside the time space continuum with her. Your portal opens Wed 6.17.15

Extra Soft Earthquake
Who's to say if it's love lorn knees about to swoon, or the solar system tugging at tectonics just enough to tousle your hair, only the bubbles in your brain are precise enough to register disaster of these proportions. The question becomes, who else feels it and for that, you need something extra: a resonant frequency for detecting others. With two masters of tectonic touslings, Jon Leidecker (wobbly) and Jake Rodriguez (bran(...)pos) spinning the top, few will be left standing at this, their debut performance.

Earth Jerks
Christian Dixon knows humans, not only has he played with them as with his famed trio Death Sentence Panda! he defies their spiritual death by running a record shop, and it's even rumored he created a real human inside his house. But if you separate him from other humans, something strange happens, it's as if he can summon the personhood of machines. As documented on the Computer Tapes label, his solo project, Earth Jerks, demonstrates how to use gaffer's tape effectively and how to abide by the adage; "3 chords good, 2 chords better, 1 chord best". The audience will be asked to keep a safe and silent distance during this demonstration.

Re: “The Flamin' Groovies

highly doubtful Roy Loney will be jumping on stage. Current lineup is Cyril Jordan, Chris Wilson, George Alexander and Victor Penalosa and the band are performing the entire "Shake Some Action" album for it's 40th anniversary. Shake Some Action as well as many other songs on that album were written by Jordan/Wilson!

Re: “Left Bass Dance Party: A Fundraiser for The BlackOUT Collective

Thank you for the Love EBE! BlackOUT only supports Black Brunch actions. They are autonomous and a group of young people in Oakland brainstormed the idea with us and organized the first few themselves. We support them. Can't wait to party with yall!

Re: “Behind Enemy Lines with Marthe Cohn

What a rare opportunity to learn from someone like Marthe Cohn. How she dealt with personal danger on a minute-to-minute basis. What compelled her to do this? What sustained her level of motivation and love for people and her country?
