      Other Minds Festival 25: Moment's Notice, Program 1

      OTHER MINDS and Artistic Director Charles Amirkhanian announce the 25th anniversary edition of the annual OTHER MINDS FESTIVAL OF NEW MUSIC taking place across four days from April 2-5, 2020, Thursday through Sunday, at the Taube Atrium Theater in San Francisco's War Memorial Building. Curated by jazz concert producer Harry Bernstein, Other Minds Festival 25 "Moment's Notice" will focus on performers whose artistry manifests consistent innovation and experimentation, including an award-winning group of improviser/composers and performers touted as both seminal icons of music of the latter 20th century and leaders in the vanguard of instant composition such as NEA Jazz Masters Anthony Braxton and Roscoe Mitchell, Guggenheim Fellows Jennifer Shyu, Wadada Leo Smith, and Zeena Parkins who will perform alongside Ikue Mori and William Winant, MacArthur Genius Award-winner Mary Halvorson, plus Mats Gustafsson in collaboration with Joe McPhee, recent winner of the new Instant Award in Improvised Music in collaboration; Doris Duke Performing Artist Award winners William Parker and Myra Melford, as well as Darius Jones, Joelle Leandre, Elliott Sharp, and a host of additional performers.

      Throughout the Festival, performances combining media, including dance, theater, and video will be represented, including pianist/composer Myra Melford who will partner with Los Angeles-based Butoh dancer Oguri; William Parker's dance/theater work, "The Sky is Trembling," featuring Patricia Nicholson; Wadada Leo Smith's "Reflections and Meditations on Monk" in collaboration with live video artist Jesse Gilbert; and Jen Shyu's luminous theater piece "Nine Doors."
