Rhys Chatham's A Secret Rose

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Rhys Chatham is a composer, guitarist and trumpet player from Manhattan, currently living in Paris, who altered the DNA of rock and created a new type of urban music by fusing the overtone-drenched minimalism of the early 60s with the relentless, elemental fury of the Ramones. Chatham's compositions witness the textural intricacies of the avant-garde colliding with the visceral punch of electric guitar-slinging punk rock.

Come experience the staggering sound of 100 guitars played simultaneously in this five-movement opus by one of noise-rock’s founding fathers. Join San Francisco contemporary music champions, Other Minds, for the West Coast premiere of composer Rhys Chatham’s A Secret Rose at the beautiful Craneway Pavilion.

“Without him, there would be no Sonic Youth, no Jesus and Mary Chain, no My Bloody Valentine . . . he remains a towering figure among six-string aficianados.”

Greg Kot, Chicago Tribune, author of Wilco: Learning How to Die

“Spacious drones shimmering with intricate harmonic effects.”

Chicago Reader

“It might justly be considered music to pray to.”

Will Hermes, The New York Times

“Surging phosphorenscence . . . Uplifting.”

David Fricke, Rolling Stone

“Stunning”
