What You Missed Last Saturday Night
A crowd of 300 or so people gathered Under Spring Saturday night, July 28, 2007 for The Camel's Back, part of Farmlab's "Accidentally on Purpose" series that celebrates summer and spontaneity.
Folks who came were treated to the likes of a collaborative performances by guitar hero Nels Cline, bassist Jesske Hume, and butoh dancer extraordinaire, Oguri; and, as if that wasn't spectacular enough, the premiere of composer Yuval Ron's work, "Maya." That piece featuring both wind instrumentation and the playing of an enormous "earth harp" -- a massive string instrument made of thick wires that stretched nearly the complete length of Under Spring.
More music followed by Arnie Saiki's band, Obakesan, featuring dance by Robert Scott; and a solo dance piece by Miles Tokunow.
