When: Wed., Dec. 31, 7:30 p.m. 1969
This week's installment of L@Te: Friday Nights @ BAM/PFA excites more than curiosity. Called SLEEP, it features Liz Harris (a.k.a. Grouper), a Portland-based electro-acoustic ambient/noise musician whose work on guitar, Wurlitzer keys, and voice crosses (if not trashes) boundaries between rock and God knows what else. Harris has created a site-specific work that revolves around tape-collage and live instrumentation accompanied by video. Her installation intends to "echo the movement of a downward-pulling current, lulling with the hiss and resonating pulse of watery sound and light." Were that not enough, harpsichordist Eugene Petrushansky is theopening act, veering from early music to improvisation. Berkeley Art Museum (2626 Bancroft Way, Berkeley) on Friday July 23, 7:30 p.m. (doors open at 6 p.m.), $5.510642-0808 or BAMPFA.berkeley.edu.
