Sung Kim creates a new genre with Stop Motion animation and improvisation on hand made instruments. An improvisor, sculptor, and an instrument builder, Kim studied ceramic sculpture at the Corcoran School of Art. It was there that Kim started building his own variations of the guitar. While attending The Art Institute of Chicago he began to deviate from the guitar to explore other techniques, tonalities, and sympathetic resonance. Now a long time Bay Area resident, Kim has collaborated with many local musicians to explore his instruments in an improvisational context.
Zachary James Watkins’ composition ‘Peace Be Till’ commissioned by Kronos Quartet debuted in January at Carnegie Hall. Zachary has also received commissions from Cornish College of The Arts, The Microscores Project, the Beam Foundation, Somnubutone Radio Series free103point9.org, sfsound and the Seattle Chamber Players. His band Black Spirituals opened for pionering Drone Metal band Earth during their 2015 European tour.
John Shiurba is a composer and guitarist whose musical pursuits include improvisation, art-rock, modern composition and noise. Shiurba has recorded and toured as a member of the bands Eskimo, The Molecules, Spezza Rotto, the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, Anthony Braxton’s ensemble and the SFSound Group. Cadence Magazine calls Shiurba a ‘wildly creative guitarist… anti-jazz, anti-everything else, yet utterly compelling.
He will be playing with trumpet player Tom Djll (Grosse Abfahrt, hackMIDI, Beauty School, Tender Buttons).
