  • 8:00 PMMy Husband Didn't Teach Me French--world premiere
  • 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM Starring Vance Jordan and Jeanine Fennel a new play written and produced by Francine D. Miller This ground breaking drama, based on true stories, strategically addresses a trend that is happening to many women in the United States whether white or black. It addresses the secret lives of many foreign men, particularly West African French colonies who are married to American women. The play exposes the lies, deceit and cruelty that these women often fall victim to simply because they were blinded by the charming and the exotic qualities of their lovers. This our story that should be finally told. Show dates: November 2, 2011 @8pm November 5, 2011 @3pm November 6, 2011 @4pm and 8pm Admission: General: $15 Students with ID: $7

  • 9:00 PMEvent Horizon pres. The Great Quentini, Northern Valentine, Delicate Monster
  • 9:00 PM - 11:30 PM Event Horizon presents performance artist The Great Quentini Northern Valentine Delicate Monster The Event Horizon concert series is a Philadelphia, PA based concert series featuring Ambient, Electronic, Experimental and Space Music. The Great Quentini Quentin Davis is The Great Quentini. He is a sculptor and a performance artist who makes his costumes and musical sculptures out of found materials. He has shows in which he wears costumes, plays these musical sculptures, and tells humorous stories; acting out the parts that defy words. These stories are often from his life experience. Northern Valentine Northern Valentine is a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania based ambient/drone collective anchored by husband and wife, Robert and Amy Brown.Their music is largely improvisational and is often set to original films that the collective has created. Coaxing sounds from electric and acoustic sources, they weave meditative drones and soundscapes with "barely there" post-rock instrumentation to create a tapestry that Phil McMullen (Terrascope Online) refers to as "minimalist ambiance at its best. Heartfelt, soulful and affecting, like gazing into a scrapbook of memories". Delicate Monster Both Art Cohen (guitar) and Steve Bowman (synths) love to argue about what makes good music-with each other and with anybody else who feels as passionately as they do.  Through Delicate Monster, they make their arguments in sound.  When Art and Steve disagree with each other, it's a consequence of their divergent musical backgrounds.  Art is rooted in psychedelic guitar,Berlin-school spacemusic, and American folk.  He's been a fixture on the Philly music scene for 25 years-you may know him as half of the duo The Ministry of Inside Things (with Chuck van Zyl).  Steve has a musty degree in Music from Harvard, where he first encountered the Buchla.  He draws his influence from classical music and radical composers like Ives, Stockhausen, Subotnick, Monteverdi, Bach, and Ligeti.  (Their musical tastes do overlap with the Grateful Dead and Captain Beefheart).  Art pushes Steve to let the music be clear and simple and to groove on the repetition.  Steve pushes Art to surrender to his weird side and luxuriate in the complexity of counterpoint and the thrill of abject dissonance.  Playing together off and on for 20 years, Art and Steve have managed to merge their stylistic differences into a novel musical language that is Delicate Monster. Admission is FREE

  • 8:00 PMPangaea: When The Continents Were One
  • 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM Pangaea: When The Continents Were One is a multi-media opera presented by Philadelphia based label and music collective, earSnake. The music and story for the opera were written by composer and sound artist Mike McDermott (Mikronesia) over the past 15 years. Pangaea: When The Continents Were One will be premiered on November 11, 2011 (11/11/11) at The Rotunda in Philadelphia, PA. The multi-media opera will be presented by a 17 piece ensemble of strings, horns, flute, percussion, piano, electronics, guitars and voice. Sets, costumes, life sized puppets and masks are being designed by Liza Goodell of Spiral Q Puppet Theater and Tigre Bailando. In addition to the ensemble of musicians, singers and human puppets, Nico Dominguez (of Klip Collective) will be presenting images from the story that will be digitally projected and manipulated on stage. Pangaea's mix of world, chamber, electronic and rock music plus the blend of real life and digital visuals will make this premiere a truly modern spectacle of sight and sound. The story is a new mythology about the first humans who lived on the super continent Pangaea. On one giant continent the first tribes of man lived a simple life style. Over time the tribes began to embrace technology and turn away from their natural animal like ways. Recently the super continent of Pangaea is undergoing tumultuous environmental change as the continents begin to split into the continents we know today. Floods, volcanic eruptions, storms, changing seasons, wild fires and other ecological disasters begin to plague the simple people of Pangaea. The tribes begin to blame each other for displeasing the gods who have brought about these tumultuous changes. As tensions between the tribes increases the people of Pangaea are on the brink of an all out war.

  • 8:30 PMAn Evening with Alash, Tuvan Throat-singing & traditional Tuvan music w/ some non traditional influences
  • 8:30 PM - 10:30 PM <!--Alash--> ensemble is a quartet of master throat singers (xöömeizhi) from Tuva, a tiny republic in the heart of Central Asia. The ancient art of throat singing (xöömei) developed among the nomadic herdsmen of this region. Alash remains grounded in this tradition while expanding its musical vocabulary with new ideas from the West. <!-- Sean Quirk stamp and text together --> <!-- Alash River photo --> Name: The ensemble is named for the Alash River, which runs through the northwestern region of Tuva. The Alash River has also inspired a couple of Tuvan songs which carry its name. Background: All members of Alash were trained in traditional Tuvan music since childhood, first learning from their families, and later becoming students of master throat singers. In 1999, as students at Kyzyl Arts College, they formed a group called Changy-Xaya. They practiced in the damp college basement on Kochetovo Street, and soon became the resident traditional ensemble on campus. At the same time they learned about western music, practiced on hybrid Tuvan-European instruments, and listened to new trends coming out of America. <!-- Alash 2002 photo --> Under the guidance of Kongar-ool Ondar (best known to western audiences for his role in the film Genghis Blues), they began to forge a new musical identity. They introduced the guitar and sometimes even the Russian bayan (accordion) into their arrangements, alongside their traditional Tuvan instruments. They experimented with new harmonies and song structures. The effect is an intriguing mixture of old and new. Influences: The musicians are inspired by the music of their grandparents, great-grandparents, and the great musicians of Tuva and Central Asia. At the same time they are influenced by such western artists as Sun Ra and Jimi Hendrix. Yet the Alash musicians never sacrifice the integrity of their heritage in an effort to make their music more hip for an American audience. Rather they look for contemporary ideas that mesh well with the sound and feel of traditional Tuvan music. <!-- Alash in Whitefish Bay 2006 photo --> Alash in America: Alash's inaugural U.S. tour was sponsored in 2006 by the Open World Leadership program of the Library of Congress and the National Endowment for the Arts. Since then, they have returned to tour extensively, playing to enthusiastic audiences and presenting workshops to eager students of all ages. The Washington Post described their music as "utterly stunning," quipping that after the performance "audience members picked their jaws up off the floor." (full review). A brochure for Alash's K-12 workshops is on the contact page. <!-- Alash Collaboration photos (combined in one GIF) --> <!-- <a href="Alash-ESTG-Rotunda-less.htm" mce_href="Alash-ESTG-Rotunda-less.htm" onclick="JavaScript:popupSubWindow('Alash-ESTG-Rotunda-less.htm', 800, 600);event.returnValue=false;return false;"><img src="Rotunda-sm-caption.jpg" mce_src="Rotunda-sm-caption.jpg" alt="Alash jams with the Extra Special Terrestrial Guests at the Rotunda.

They have collaborated with such diverse groups as the innovative jazz ensemble Sun Ra Arkestra, the bluegrass/fusion/jazz band Béla Fleck and Flecktones, and the classical Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center's Student Producers Program. They are guest artists on the Grammy-winning holiday CD "Jingle All the Way" by Béla Fleck and Flecktones. Awards: Both the Alash ensemble and individual members have consistently won top honors in throat singing competitions. The ensemble was awarded first prize in Tuva's International Xöömei Symposium competition in 2004. At the Fifth International Xöömei Symposium in 2008, three Alash musicians swept the top prizes for individual throat singing, and the fourth took top honors for his duet performance with his wife. In 2007, Alash member Bady-Dorzhu Ondar was named People's Xöömeizhi of the Republic of Tuva, the youngest person ever to receive this prestigious award. In 2009, Alash member Ayan Shirizhik was named a Merited Artist of Tuva. Even Alash's American manager, Sean Quirk, was named a Merited Artist of Tuva for his contribution to Tuvan culture. In addition, Quirk and all Alash members play in the Tuvan National Orchestra, which has won both first prize and grand prize in the All-Russia National Orchestra and Ensemble Competition.

  • 8:00 PMBowerbird pres. the Gate series feat. sound experiments by Sergei Tcherepnin + Woody Sullender, FUN, Scott Allison, Sam Cusumano/Eugene Lew, Joo Won Park
  • 8:00 PM - 11:00 PM Bowerbird presents the Gate series Featured this month: True Experimental Music. Join us for a night of experiments, in the empirical sense, about sound. We invited nine artists to re-imagine the familiar space of The Rotunda for an evening of sonic provocations. The night will unfold four parts: Sergei Tcherepnin and Woody Sullender, (2) FUN, (3) Scott Allison and Joo Won Park, and (4) Cotton Poodle (Sam Cusumano / Eugene Lew). Each group was proposed the same basic question – how can we construct space and forms using sound as the medium? The only restriction was that it had to have a set duration and be performable – in other words, no installations. What will happen? Will the experiments succeed or fail? We don’t know – but we’re excited to find out. PREVIEW SOME OF SERGEI TCHEREPNIN'S WORK here Admission is FREE

The types of bands and arts are based more on the similar sort of mood they evoke than any specific sort of genre. All our events are ALL AGES, as we feel that no one should be banished from the world of music and punished solely due to their age. The Rotunda is the main venue in which we host this series. The Little Bar is our sidekick. EveOfTheLastMigration@gmail.com

  • 8:00 PMBirdsongs of the Mesozoic, Blue Crunk, Drexel Improv Ensemble (DIE)
  • 8:00 PM - 11:00 PM Birdsongs of the Mesozoic is a 4-piece Boston-based electrified modern music ensemble formed in 1980. Michael Bierylo (guitar/laptop), Ken Field (sax/flute/percussion), Erik Lindgren (piano), and Rick Scott (synthesizer) have been recognized both individually and collectively as significant contributors to the world of modern creative music. With over twelve releases, the group has received international acclaim for its unique and creative blend of musical styles. Blue Crunk is a Philadelphia-based Instrumental jazz / funk ensemble featuring members of up-and-coming hip hop band Abstract verses and jazz-fusion group Touch. Blue Crunk's 4 infuse guitarist / composer Craig Kahle's compositions with an improvisatory fury that transforms their mixture  of jazz and funk into a signature sound. DIE (Drexel Improv Ensemble) Having sprung from an improvisation workshop led by composer / violinist Daniel Bernard Roumain, The Philadelphia-based DIE has since expanded well beyond its parent university and original membership. Their style lies somewhere in the realm of improvised chamber music, but has hands in minimalism, free jazz, jazz, rock, and experimental music of various types. For this performance the Improv Ensemble will feature its 7 veteran members (saxophonists Steve Davit & Kyle Press, trombonists Connor Przybyszewski & Tyler Mack, guitarists Eric Sanderson & Jake Hager, and keyboardist Erica Corbo), and collaborate with members of Birdsongs of the Mesozoic during their set. Admission: $5 suggested donation For more information about Birdsongs or to schedule an interview, contact Erik Lindgren at erik@arfarfrecords.com / 508-947-7387 ____________ WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT BIRDSONGS OF THE MESOZOIC: "If Beethoven were alive today he might even want to sit in with these guys." Roanoke Times & World News "Very few bands have ever managed to straddle the worlds of modern classical music and rock as successfully as this one..." All Music Guide "A mesmerizing instrumental venture into the space-age jungle." --- Billboard "Pioneering" --- Time Out NY "One of America's most original bands." --- Honolulu Star-Bulletin "Nearly legendary -- a chugging rough-edged chamber-rock ensemble" --- Village Voice "The world's hardest rocking chamber music quartet." --- Boston Globe
