Bob Ostertag (California, USA) World Tour

Talk on Creative Life, the nexus of music, politics, and technology

☞ Sat 12 December 2015, 18.30
Performance

☞ Sun 13 December 2015
Workshop on music, distribution, and instruments

Composer, performer, instrument builder, journalist, activist, historian, kayak instructor—Bob Ostertag’s work cannot easily be summarized or pigeon-holed. He has published 21 CDs of music, 2 films, and 3 books, and appeared at music, film, and multimedia festivals around the globe. He’s visiting C2O as part of his world tour, and he will discuss his book, Creative Life: Art, Politics, People, Machines (University of Illinois Press, 2009), perform music, and give workshop on music distribution and instruments. As a journalist, his writings on contemporary politics have been published in many languages, including The Huffington Post. Electronic instruments of his own design are at the cutting edge of both music and video performance technology.

Born in Albuquerque in 1957, he dropped out of the Oberlin Conservatory after two years, settled in New York City in 1978 and immersed himself in the “downtown” music scene of the period. He left music in 1980/81 to work in Central America, and became an expert on the region, with writings published in Asia, Africa, Latin America, Europe, and the U.S. In 1988 he moved to San Francisco and resumed his musical activity. His radically diverse collaborators have included the Kronos Quartet, avant garders John Zorn and Fred Frith, heavy metal star Mike Patton, jazz great Anthony Braxton, dyke punk rocker Lynn Breedlove, drag diva Justin Bond, film maker Pierre Hébert, and others. He is rumored to have connections to the shadowy media guerrilla group The Yes Men.

This event is part of his world tour. For complete world tour dates, please check Bob’s website.
