The Subtle Body Transmission Orchestra (Sam Byrd, percussion; Tim Harding, alto saxophone; Rich O’Meara, vibraphone; Tom Wall, baritone saxophone; me, double bass) with Dictaphone interventionist Jeff Surak and dancers Amanda Blythe, Ken Manheimer, Sarah Schaffer and Hannah Whitley kick off Day 2 of the 2014 Sonic Circuits Festival of Experimental Music on Saturday at 5:30 PM with a site-specific improvisation on the grounds surrounding the Pyramid Atlantic building (pictured above), 8230 Georgia Avenue in beautiful downtown Silver Spring. And that’s just the beginning of an entire evening’s worth of music and multimedia.
(The Sonic Circuits festival starts tonight at 7:30 at Pyramid Atlantic and runs through Sunday.)
