Solo Show Chashama

Qualia: A Personal Iconography of Introspective Findings

A solo exhibition of new oil paintings by Lisa Taliano. This work examines the content and quality of consciousness, translating and recording subjective experience into symbols, shapes, form and color.

Opening Reception and Performance: Saturday February 6 from 6-9pm

7:00 - 7:45 Performance

Frank J. Oteri and Tonally Perplexed

Tonally Perplexed is a trio devoted to exploring improvisation using microtonal scales with intervals as small as just noticeable differences. Frank J. Oteri performs on a specially designed keyboard instrument called the Tonal Plexus which is tuned to 205-tone equal temperament, a scale derived from the accumulation of just noticeable differences. Ratzo B. Harris performs as most acoustic bassists do on an instrument without frets which means that any interval is possible, but to further extend his possibilities his bass has extra strings. Jeffrey Herman, on the other hand, liberates the standardly tuned fretboard of his electric guitar by bending and frequently retuning strings as well as using a variety of processors.
