Culver Center of the Arts

Free Admission


Tuesday, February 25, 2014, 8:00pm - 9:30pm

Biddy Connor: viola, voice, music saw, live effects and loops Judith Hamann: cello

Sailor Days is the moniker for Australian musician Biddy Connor. In February 2014 Biddy will be taking part at a residency at BoxoHOUSE in The Joshua Tree Desert. There she will be working on a composition for a video collaboration with artist Megan Evans who stayed at BoxoHOUSE in May 2013.

For her performance at the Culver Centre for The Arts Biddy will present some material from her debut album as Sailor Days as well as new material for solo viola, voice, saw and effects. Using live hardware loops and Ableton Live, Biddy will perform songs and improvisations that play gracefully with harmony, melody and structure, creating a strange and beautiful architecture.

Joining her will be Australian cellist Judith Hamann who is currently completing her Doctorate at the University of California, San Diego, studying with Professor Charles Curtis.
