San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music Chamber Music Day. Live + Free 2012: Mission Eye & Ear [SCREENING ROOM]


Chamber Music Day 2012 will take place on Sunday, November 18th at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts - from noon to early-evening. Throughout the day there will be performances on the two main stages: twenty-four professional small ensembles playing music ranging from classical to the latest avant-garde music, from early baroque to living composers, from jazz and improvisation to crossover music that bridges genres and cultures. The Screening Room will present nine film makers, whose collaboration with nine composers and live ensemble performances offer a feast for both the ears and eyes. In the Young Artist At Work Lounge, 6 youth ensembles will present "Next Generation." In addition, local chamber music presenting organizations are invited to publicize their upcoming 2012-2013 seasons and visitors can learn about the extraordinary range of small ensemble concerts in and around the San Francisco Bay Area. Admission to Chamber Music Day is free to the public.

Mission Eye & Ear

Mission Eye & Ear is a "live cinema" series organized by San Francisco
bassist Lisa Mezzacappa in collaboration with the beloved Mission
District film space, Artists' Television Access (ATA). Bay Area and
West Coast experimental filmmakers are paired with local jazz and
experimental music composers to create new short film/video and music
works, performed live by Bay Area ensembles. The films span pop
culture and Hollywood mashups, collage animation, noir thriller and
abstract, immersive textures using found-footage. The music ranges
from noise, to avant-pop, free jazz, pseudo country and delicate
chamber sounds.
