March 11th: Eat the Sun + Tonal Masher + Tiberius

Active Music Series presents Eat the Sun + Tonal Masher + Tiberius + Active Music Photography Exhibit Reception

Eat the Sun Gretchen: Gretchen Jude (koto), Jason Hoopes (bass), and Noah Phillips (guitar) played their first official show as Eat The Sun during the solar eclipse of 2012. Their music is freely improvised, always with a mind toward finding groove, and walking the line between melody and noise, accessibility and confrontation. Their first album will be released later this Spring.  

Tonal Masher is the saxophone & electronics alter ego of Aram Shelton. Much like the anagram which creates the name, in this solo project Shelton re-arranges and extends his acoustic sounds via processing. Layers of tones and harmonics are combined with extended techniques including multiphonics and circular breathing: 

Tiberius is primarily a spontaneously creative unit comprised of Dominic Cramp (Evangelista, Borful Tang, Lord Tang, Vulcanus 68) playing organ and electronics and Mike Guarino (Sir Richard Bishop, Oaxacan) playing drums, guitar, and electronics. Between them they have performed throughout the United States, Europe and South America with such artists as Nels Cline, Richard Bishop, Bill Gould, Mike Watt, John Dietrich, Carla Bozulich, Shahzad Ismaily, Ches Smith and Damo Suzuki.

We’ll also be having a reception for the Active Music Photography Exhibit in the front room. Photos of musicians by Lenny Gonzalez, Carly Hoopes, Omid Zoufonoun, Tom Djll, Aram Shelton, Charles Smith and Myles Boisen. Come at 9pm to meet the photographers and view the work!
