Location: CNMAT, 1750 Arch Street, Berkeley CA // cnmat.berkeley.edu
Formed in 1998, Trio Fibonacci is entirely devoted to the performance of new music for violin, cello and piano. At Friday's performance the trio will perform the music of contemporary Quebecois composers Laurie Radford & Serge Provost and California based composers Hideko Kawamoto & Damon Waitkus. The event is co-produced and located at the UC Berkeley Center for New Music and Audio Technologies (CNMAT) in North Berkeley. Steve Lomas of the Classical Source says about the Trio's recent recordings: "It would be hard to imagine more authoritative or virtuosic accounts of these works" and "they are well worth seeking out."
San Francisco based Nexmap is dedicated to the production and appreciation of contemporary, experimental art and music. With Binary Cities #7 Nexmap will present two opportunities to see and hear the internationally renown, Montreal based Trio Fibonacci, performing on both Friday, October 16th, in co-production with CNMAT and on Sunday, October 18th in an intimate home concert as part of their continuing SALON CONCERT SERIES. Also that weekend, Nexmap will premiere an excerpt of Marc Couroux's film 68/70 with local SF filmmaker John Davis' Mark You, Make Believe My Dear, Yes (2006) on Saturday, October 17 at Counterpulse.
This event is made possible in part through support of the Canada Council for the Arts, the Cultural Services of the French Consulate of San Francisco, and the York University Faculty of Fine Arts Research Projects Grant.
