DAILY MAGPIE – February 21st – "Sound. Light. Migrations" at MILLS COLLEGE

This is your chance to see analog electronic music pioneer Pauline Oliveros collaborate live with visual composer and light manipulator Tony Martin in their piece Sound. Light. Migrations for Mills Music Festival 2009, followed in the same night by the wizard of the minimalist movement Terry Riley, woodwinds jazz maestro Roscoe Mitchell and Jean Jeanrenaud of the Kronos Quartnet. Hoo-boy! California, here I come!
