* A Potential for Delusion
Oh no, we are scanning every inch of ourselves but there is not yet an ember of recognition. But we do know this. This is a 3 act show, featuring 2 highly trained flautists, a dancer from the marsh, a pew fellow, a man who thinks he's a body of water, and a bassist in the thrall of a garbanzo bean.

About the event
This evening is heavy on the glam. The lights shine so brightly that you can barely open your eyes. Thankfully the ears are always holes and they are ready to be envelop the quantum calculator that is our physical reality. Maybe it is through what we must accept, that we cannot take for granted, that we can find out who we are.
This is a classic. $10 to $20 Notaflof
Anjali Shinde- Flute/Piccolo/Slide Whistle
Aaron Pond-Horn/Vocals/Bassoon/Slide Whistle
Anjali and Aaron have been meeting up in NYC and making improvisaiton in modalities that they define as sonorous. There is ofc an emphasis on play and the unexpected but they are united in a pursuit of the True, Good, and Beautiful. Anajli is a fellow with Ensemble Connect, a project of Carnegie Hall, Julliard and the NYC School System. She's also a former floridia as is Aaron. This is her Philly debut. Aaron is a hornist who has sucessfully subliminated both his many sins and virtues into this thing we call music. Through sound and soundings, he makes a home that he could never find in the swamps of his birth.
Karen Smith- Drums/Percussion
Pete Dennis- Bass
Mijka Smith- Movement
We are bringing back one of the best performances we've ever seen the combination of Karen Smith, Mijkalena Smith (no relation), and Pete Dennis. Karen is a newly minted Pew Fellow, Mijkalena the newly minted Director of Dance at some fancy place in upper merion. She used to live in a marsh. They will most likely be unified and disrupted by a bassist, Pete Dennis, an industrious and exceptionally tall fellow. Not to mention greatly talented. Virtue, Knowledge, and Energy. His domains.
Will Fredendall- Flute
Will is making his solo philly debut. Drawing from folkloric expression and contemporary extended techniques, he weaves a vivid story with the aim to transport you to a world outside this one. A world that can only be reached with the music of the flute. All music is performed in the dark to promote meditation and visualization.
