Listen up! and down! and sideways!

This Sunday night, June 21st, at 11:00 p.m. Pacific, tune into KPFA and you can hear me talk about everything I'm up to on Dean Suzuki's Discreet Music show.

Dean was one of my profs at SF State countless eons ago. No, I don't want to count these countless eons. :)

Flip Quartet personnel confirmed

So, the two gangs of four are set for the upcoming Flip Quartet performances:

- Saturday, June 27th at Hypnagogia: Karl Evangelista, Jason Hoopes, Thomas Scandura, and Bill Wolter

- Friday, July 17th at Book Zoo: Amar Chaudhary, Travis Johns, Suki O'Kane, and Moe! Staiano

With two such different lineups, and two such different venues, we'll get two very different interpretations. I can't wait!

A tale of two Flip Quartets

Something very cool: my Flip Quartet will be performed twice in coming months.

First, on June 23rd, in the Hypnagogia event at the Climate Theater in San Francisco. The four performers will be Karl Evangelista, Jason Hoopes, Thomas Scandura, and Bill Wolter.

Second, on July 17th, at Book Zoo in Oakland. Performers are still being recruited, but we've got three out of four, so the lineup will be announcible soon.

Clyde Niesen will be our stalwart sound engineer for both Flip Quartets, making sure all those elemental sounds get heard.
