Gallery: Vexations [Re-vex’d] — Satie Improv Marathon @ Berkeley Arts, Sat 23 Mar & Sun 24 Mar

Here are some pictures from the recent Vexations [Re-vex’d] 22-hour improv marathon on a theme of Satie’s at Berkeley Arts Festival.

It was a great honor to organize this event and extraordinary to hear the richness and originality of the different approaches these great musicians took to it.

All photos below by Joel Deuter (thank you, Joel!), sometimes with further processing by me. (Note: Not all musicians who played were photographed).

In the background of many of these photos can be seen the luminous encaustic paintings of Mari Marks.
