We’re happy to bring you the first Still Life of spring! On Saturday, April 7, our bimonthly showcase of experimental music in the side chapel of the First Unitarian Church welcomes an ethereal three-artist show.
The broad brush of Fursaxa’s Tara Burke is exemplary of what we talk about when we talk about the spirit and fearlessness of experimental music. In a 13-year career, she’s performed at international festivals and in small galleries; opened for Sonic Youth at The Troc and headlined the Highwire; performed using harmonium and chimes, or simply vocal loops. Recently Fursaxa has played in a duo format with Helena Espvall, who also joins us for a solo set. A cellist in new-folk acts Espers and Arborea, Espvall’s own music feeds her instrument through effects to create haunting, affecting tones. Her Espers bandmate in Norman Fetter rounds out the bill with his own project, Enumclaw, which creates minimal ambient meditations bathed in delicate, liquid synthesizer tones.
Admission is $8 at the door; the show begins at 8 p.m.; the First Unitarian Chapel is located at 2125 Chestnut Street.
