'Something New in Sight & Sound' comes to CSMA in Mountain View

A new concept in classical performance is on the menu with “Something New in Sight and Sound,” a concert slated 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Community School of Music and Arts at Finn Center in Mountain View.

Bay Area musicians Justin Schrum, piano, and Hazel Keelan, violin, are scheduled to bring live music, digital art and new technology together to experiment in the experience of performer and audience alike. Members of the audience are invited to be creative entrepreneurs as real-time, active participants in the concert using Sensemo, the world’s first instant emotion feedback cloud. Schrum and Keelan have been exploring the relationship among music, digital art and color in preparing for the recital, and some of their performance will be accompanied by art created in the community in workshops held in recent months.

TheatreWorks' 'The Velocity of Autumn' continues in downtown Mountain View

TheatreWorks’ regional premiere of “The Velocity of Autumn” is scheduled to run through June 26 at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, 500 Castro St.

Written by Eric Coble, the play centers on Alexandra (Susan Greenhill), an octogenarian artist who barricades herself in her Brooklyn brownstone, booby-trapped with enough homemade bombs to take out the neighborhood. In a wry, spirited quest to “not go gentle” into a retirement home, she battles both the fears of her family and the ravages of time, negotiating the terms of her future with long-estranged son Chris (Mark Anderson Phillips), who is battling his own problems.
