All right, this is going to sound more complicated than it is: Composer/performer Tom Hamilton manipulates in real time 50 sound clips originated by the various musicians who have performed as part of the New Music Circle (www.newmusiccircle.org) during NMC's first 50 years. While Hamilton is busy crafting music and atmosphere, seven local musicians will improvise spontaneous sounds in solos and duos to augment Hamilton's wizardry. The resulting sonicscape promises to be dense, ever-shifting, beautiful and ripe with the ever-present Now. The magnificent seven joining Hamilton include Zimbabwe Nkenya (bass/kalimba), Scott Bryan (percussion/guitar, Tony Renner (guitar/ESP) and Dave Stone (saxophone of the gods). Yeah, that's a show. Tickets are $7 to $15. Miss this and you'll hate yourself in the morning.
