Aish with Varros (Single Release Show)

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.

eco ensemble: Foxtrot Delirium

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.

Shadows in Stereo | Christine Marie

'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.
