Tom Djll studied with Roscoe Mitchell, Alvin Curran, Pauline Oliveros, Anthony Braxton, and Wadada Leo Smith. At the Mills College Contemporary Music Center, he developed a personal trumpet language alongside electronic and microtonal studies. He uses movement and trance-related energies to form a complete musical expression.

Oakland-based musican, composer, improviser Suki O’Kane works with artists from a wide array of music and movement genres. She is a student of monumental and durational forms, combining percussion, Jurassic electronics, everyday objects and found sounds to create noisy, hand held miniatures.

Erica Stevenson | Thursday 9-11PM, 

Erica Stevenson has been playing the violin since she was a wee little tot. Throughout high school, she practiced like it was her job, joining every orchestra and music opportunity possible. Sadly, her practice died off suddenly through the stressful years of early adulthood...over a decade later, Erica started playing music for her small Contact Improv Covid Bubble. This new improvisational way of playing, inspired by dance and life around her, brought her back to her long lost passion. Now you'll find her schlepping a violin with her to parties and improv jams.
