San Frangler II -Live (2010) - This piece was created with sounds from San Francisco to become my view of the San Francisco experience. This to me, is the lingering feeling of the Wild West, the Gold Rush, and the modern day pioneer. The sounds include: 16th Mission BART escalator, yachts at Berkeley Marina, Berkeley freight train, Mission St. shop, a sculpture made of slide-whistles at the Maker Faire, and Grand/Lakeshore Oakland Farmer's Market. This piece was first performed at the University of Illinois College of Architecture and the Arts at Gallery 400 as part of the American Society for Acoustic Ecology Conference. For the second live performance that took place at the Hemlock Tavern, SF for the Brutal Sound Effects Festival #72, I added harmonica through delay with feedback along with a singing bowl. Excerpt is from the Hemlock Tavern live performance from the mixing board so only the harmonica's feedback is heard, not the room sound:
