Hello all! This Tuesday (the 29th) Noah Prebish will be hosting an evening of improvised music performed on the San Damiano Mission’s beautiful 200-pipe organ. Recently restored and complete with MIDI functionality, the organ can be played both by hand and electronically, the latter with inhuman speed and accuracy, placing the instrument at a really fascinating intersection between ancient and modern.

In his time working at the Lot Radio the last two and a half years (across the street from the San Damiano Mission) Noah was able to spend a lot of time playing on and getting to know this totally insane instrument. He also had the pleasure of getting to know Nick and Raphael, the two priests at the church, who have been close friends ever since, generously lending us their space for various creative projects. Nick is leaving San Damiano in the next few days to move to his next assignment in NC, so Noah wants to be sure we have one final hurrah while he is still here.

Noah will be performing an improvised set on organ and modular synth, with live accompaniment by his friends Angel Deradoorian and Sabine Holler. Composer, DJ, and cosmic wizard Takuya Nakamura will be performing as well with butoh dance by Azumi O E. Controlling visuals will be video artist Enrique Alba with assistance from multi-talented Dutch visual artist, Sebastiaan Bremer, who created the event's cover image.

Doors are at 8PM.

Suggested donation of $15 will go to paying performers and visual artists.
