...WE'LL BE BACK...
Saturday, November 12th, 2005:
A special CC alumni triple bill,
featuring the return of
(Don Slepian & Stuart Diamond)
"Music Tolkien would have written had he used a piano instead of a pen."
-Christain Science Monitor
"A wonderful trip into the asteroids." -Variety
Don Slepian is an internationally known electronic musician, recording artist, and concert performer. Described by Rolling Stone magazine as "one of the genre's major talents." Stuart Diamond plays the Lyricon, an electronic wind controller that controls the dynamics of a synthesizer, turning it into an instrument of remarkable expression and power.

New solo instrumental works for MIDI Chapman Stick and sitar, as performed by WPRB-FM's most versatile late-night radio host.

Stares to Nowhere
Stares to Nowhere make use of sound-- organic and otherwise-- in their music, much like Edgar Varies and Pink Floyd. The music is composed, performed and produced by Bill Fieger and Heather Lind, and is highly improvisational in nature. Described by many listeners as a soundtrack to a movie that doesn't exist, their music is ambient, experimental, electronic, tribal, and at times unpredictable, reaching from the ancient past out towards the distant stars.

Performance begins at 8pm (doors open at 7pm)
