Tonight - Usufruct and the Noodles present RadioDinner!

The best kind of gig = the one you don’t need to drag yourself out of the house for.

Tune in to sfSound Radio from 6pm to 10pm on Thursday, November 15th to hear the tablecore improvisation of the duo Usufruct (consisting of flutist, composer, vocalist/improviser Polly Moller Springhorn and computer musician Tim Walters) and the Noodles (Michael Zelner, Suki O'Kane).

Usufruct deconstructs, lovingly reassembles, and improvises around found texts and musical materials in the public domain. So do the Noodles. We’ll perform live while you say

Yes. Yes. Everything in the fridge is now going into the soup.

It is a new short by Forrest McCuller.

This is not me in the thumbnail, naturally. This is Ashari Blue. I share the screen with him and with Philip Watt.

I sing and play flute on this pop single which was just released.

Lyrics about birds, plants, jet lag, grief, sun, moon, stars, rivers...all of it is in there.
