Vida Rose Bff / Better Femme Future October 12th

bff/ Better Femme Future
with music by Lauren Moore and special guests
TICKETS: $10 at the door

ABOUT THE SHOW:
The idea for BFF was conceived 5 years ago when I had a series of dreams that took place in a slightly better version of Seattle. Slightly more interesting problems, slightly less suffering. I became obsessed with this angle of sci fi that is not utopian or dystopian, just, like, a tiny bit better. I also realized how powerful the genre of sci fi is in our culture, even people who don’t like comic books or reading fiction or super hero movies are influenced by the ideas of what is possible. And in film, those ideas are mostly about the possible ways humans can kill each other. Which is really boring to me. For example I would have enjoyed the movie Star Wars more if it were 2 hours of Luke’s mom walking around the house. What is her idea of beauty, what’s the most important story passed down from her ancestors? What songs does she sing in the shower, which herbs does she use for medicine? That is an extreme example, I realize that many people love that movie for what it is. But I’m saying I want to see sci fi movies about possible futures of art, medicine, how we heal each other, of how our day to day experiences feel. I also believe the practice of playfully exploring different ideas of what we want to happen to this world is really powerful, and it’s necessary for people involved in social justice work, service work, and activism to keep from burning out. So in some ways this is a film project about the future of medicine that is also meant to be medicine for my community and my friends.42734870_1985326761490481_5795973132326010880_o

L.A.-based cornet player Dan Clucas reunites with Seattle’s own jazz French horn specialist and Cornish College music faculty Tom Varner for a night of spontaneous improvisation.  They’ll be joined in various combinations by two other Cornish community members —  percussion faculty Greg Campbell on drums, percussion, and French horn/brass, and Cornish student Liam Hardison on guitar and/or lap steel.  Violist Heather Bentley and a few other friends may join the throng, so expect the unexpected.

Ecstatic Music Band (oakland)

The Ecstatic Music Band is a collective of over 10 members. The group performs on both amplified acoustic instruments and electric instruments with tuning systems derived directly from the overtone series. Their compositional-improvisations produce dense and dynamic fields of harmonic interference and reinforcement, while searching for a deep consonance amid the flux of microtonal variations, beating tones, difference tones, and psychoacoustic phenomena.

they will present a performance for trio .

Violin / Guitar / Viola
