The Emerald Tablet is proud to present an evening of live improvisational music with CLOUD SHEPHERD. Featuring ambient video projections by Sheila Bosco, and an opening performance by solo guitarist Aaron Sheppard.
CLOUD SHEPHERD is a San Francisco Bay Area quartet formed to explore improvised music, but in a more “ambient” setting, reflecting their combined interests in spontaneous composition, drone-based music, and certain 20th Century classical and jazz composers. Their moniker was chosen in order to reflect their commitment to the pasturing of ever-changing, nonlinear cumulations of sound.
During the recent
Opening the evening: Aaron Sheppard, a solo-instrumental composer of marvelous talent. Aaron will set the mood with his exquisitely sensitive guitar compositions, preparing us for liftoff. Let the fingerstyle lead you to the edge of trance, until the lights go down and a flock of kaleidoscopic clouds are herded forth to saturate your senses and reveal their secrets to your inner vision.
This is also the closing party for our February show, SHADOW / SHIMMER, featuring the evocative artwork of Trius Fernsler and Tibor Simon-Mazula.
