Julius Eastman (1940–90) was one of the first composers to convincingly combine rock and house influences with minimalist processes. Active in New York throughout the 1970s and 1980s, he endured addiction and homelessness and died alone, likely of AIDS-related conditions. His pioneering work paved the way for generations of experimental composers and pop artists. Coprogrammed by composer/musicologist Luciano Chessa, this performance will be the first major Bay Area presentation of his compositions, including Gay Guerilla, an expansive and emotional work for four pianos.
