DESCRIPTION

Gallery B

Percussionist William Winant brings his ensemble to the museum for a kinetic and adventurous program of twentieth-century avant-garde classics, including György Ligeti’s Poème Symphonique for 100 metronomes; Steve Reich’s Pendulum Music for swinging microphones; Fred Frith’s Stick Figures for six tabletop electric guitars, featuring Frith himself; Lou Harrison’s Solo to Anthony Cirone for tenor bells; and Philip Glass’s Music in Contrary Motion. All the works have been selected to respond to the distinctive acoustics of Gallery B. Winant is principal percussionist with the San Francisco Contemporary Music Players and the John Zorn Chamber Ensemble, and since 1995 has been the percussionist with the rock band Mr. Bungle.

Preceded at 6 p.m. by DJ The Bipolar Bear spinning in the lobby, where wine and beer are available for purchase.
