ABOUT CONTRAPTION QUARTET
Contraption Quartet (formerly FLEX) is a sound art collaboration between Crank Ensemble veterans Larnie Fox, Bodil Fox, Chris Miller, and Lena Strayhorn. Contraption Quartet explores sound and visual performance using low-tech invented instruments and sculptural environments. Members are visual artists and musicians working together to create rhythmic layers of material-based analog sound.
ABOUT PET THE TIGER
Pet the Tiger is David Samas (composer/inventor/extended technique vocalist), Ian Saxton (programer/percussionist), Peter Bonos (horns and explosives), Bryan Day (inventor/label) and Tom Nunn (inventor, guru).
This show is part of the gallery exhibit Spirit of Invention III. The exhibit includes all types of instruments created by a diverse group of instrument builders based in and around the Bay Area. All types of instrument will be represented – from the simple, quick to make, to more sophisticated hand-crafted designs, new variations on folk instruments, recycled junk constructions, re-configured pianos, electro- acoustic sound sculptures and electronics. The Gallery will be open during the show. You may also visit from 9am to 5pm daily. For more information on this exhibit visit www.bridgestorage.com/soi
