San Francisco based singer, writer and composer, Aish, transforms his tumultuous childhood, estrangement from family, his struggles with sexuality and his migration across continents into grand landscapes of cinematic pop music constructed with layered vocals, strings, harp, metallophones and electronics.
With the release of Promise Me and Migrant in 2017, Aish emerged with a distinctive art pop aesthetic, deftly combining intricate vocal arrangements, classical chamber and contemporary electronic music.
Aish's debut full length album, Mother, came out on March 30, 2018.
UC Berkeley's adventurous eco ensemble brings the cinematic vision of Ernst Lubitsch to life with the US premiere of Argentine composer Martin Matalon's film score for the director's The Oyster Princess. Lubitsch's 1919 silent comedy of mistaken identities is a saucy satire aimed at the desires and transgressions of the bourgeoisie. Matalon has previously scored silent films by Fritz Lang and Luis Buñuel, and here highlights Lubitsch's fleet dramatic sense and masterful comedic timing, in a score that combines acoustic and electronic sounds. Cal Performances executive and artistic director Matías Tarnopolsky begins the program with an onstage interview of Matalon; following an intermission, the film will be screened to a live performance of the score.
Amaranth Quartet returns to this year’s Kronos Festival to highlight Kronos’ commitment to younger generations of string quartets with a performance of select works from Fifty for the Future: The Kronos Learning Repertoire. The program includes music by Trio Da Kali’s Fodé Lassana Diabaté, Rhiannon Giddens, Garth Knox, Nicole Lizée and Aleksandra Vrebalov. Launched in 2015, Kronos’ Fifty for the Future is an education and legacy project that is commissioning – and distributing for free – the first learning library of contemporary repertoire for string quartet. The local quartet embodies the ethos of Kronos’ Fifty for the Future through their commitment to commissioning new music for string quartet and working with grade school students across the US.

'Shadows in Stereo' is an analog, 3-D stereo imaging experience. Artist Christine Marie uses handmade lights, simple objects, and wire sculpture to cast 30-foot shadows onto walls, ceilings, and floors which spring to life when viewed through 3-D anaglyph glasses. Visitors are invited to wander about the space, their own shadows becoming part of the experience.
Marie will create performances inspired by found 3-D film footage including scenes from James Cameron’s 'Avatar' and 1980s NASA VR simulations. 'Shadows in Stereo' questions what role analog techniques play amid digital technology and modern storytelling, creating an alternative visual space of discovery and exploration.
