Elevate Ensemble – presence and absence

Wonderful performance from Elevate Ensemble last night at San Francisco Conservatory. Superbly introduced and conducted by Chad Goodman.

Highlight for me – a  joint work “Bethlehem” by composer Danny Clay and photographer/urban archaeologist Jeremy Blakeslee

Ambience and presence – in the old Bethlehem shipyards in San Francisco.

Or rather absence – got me thinking again about Kenya Hara on emptiness [Link] – it’s the gaps, the negative space, the absences that make place.
