Four sets with three generations of electronic music

There are small-world connections among these performers (and me). Wobbly and Lesser performed and recorded with Matmos which is how I met them when Matmos performed at Spruce Street Forum in 2002. Matmos, Lesser, Conheim and Wobbly all lived in San Francisco and knew each other there. Moebius has been a hero to Wobbly for the twenty-five years he has been listening to his music. After this tour they will record together in Montana.

Tom Erbe will present his current project, a new performance version of John Cage's "Williams Mix" (1952). He received the score from the John Cage Trust and is carefully recording all the tape edits from the 192 page score. Tom has asked many of his friends (including J. Lesser and Wobbly) to contribute sounds for this new version, the first to follow the score since Cage's original performance. We will hear this special performance on Sept. 5th, which is John Cage's 100th birthday. We will also celebrate with cake.
