David Shively: Solo Percussion at Space4Art, June 4

Monday, June 4, experimental music promoter Bonnie Wright continues her cutting-edge concert series, Fresh Sound with a solo-percussion performance by NYC based musician David Shively at Space4Arts in the East Village.

Wright, who studied music at UCSD--has always been interested in players influenced by UCSD professor Steve Schick, the modern music icon who mentored many of the most forward-leaning percussionists in the contemporary music scene today. Shively earned his masters and doctorate degrees at the La Jolla campus, studying with Schick.

"To me, it's fascinating the huge amount of sounds that are possible with percussion instruments," said Wright. "When I am in New York, I'm always checking out the folks that have that connection. Last time I was there I saw Shively perform this stunning 29 minute piece, so I asked him if he was ever going to be back in California, and if so, would he consider performing in my series."

That piece, Resonance Alloy, by composer Keeril Makan, is described as "... slow timbral exploration of three cymbals and a small gong--shifting waves of high partials and fragmentary melodies emerging from a mass of constant noise."

In addition, Shively will perform composer Max Neuhaus' Fontana Mix: Feed (after John Cage) which uses acoustic feedback through resonating drums and cymbals to create a more assaultive wall of sound; one that changes in every performance according to the acoustic response of the installation space.

"Current direction of my solo work has tended towards pieces that live somewhere between performance and sound installation," said Shively. "It's definitely influenced by drone work and has some elements from the harsh noise scene as well. This set will be all about feedback, ringing metals, and slowly evolving sound masses."

Between that description and Bonnie's enthusiastic assessment, I'm all in. Join me?

Tickets are $15 general admission, $10 students. Space4Art is located at 325 15th St. Between "J" and "K".
