Manatee Migration and Crawl Dweebs @ Battery Books

  • The Battery Books 26 South Los Robles Avenue Pasadena, CA, 91101 United States (map)

Manatee Migration is an electro-acoustic freely improvised duo; comprised of Breana Gilcher on Oboe and David Aguila on Electronics, stemming from the foundations of classical/contemporary music creating unique textural dialogs engaging audiences in the transformation of sounds from Oboe to live processing. The listener is transported from the physical world to an enlightened state, as synthesizer drones and sweeps meshed with the multi-timbral oboe contours wash through the listener on a molecular level.

Crawl Dweebs is a free improvisation trio that started at CalArts that features Bassist, Sean Riddle, David Aguila on Trumpet/Electronics, and Kris Rahamad on Violin/Viola. Through their music they explore themes of challenging and portraying the current political climate that we are experiencing around the world. Major influences for the group are Vinny Golia, Martin Plot, Ulrich Krieger, Henry Threadgill, Dmitri Shostakovich, Hannah Arendt, Eric Dolphy, and Charlie Haden.
