Summoning the specters of musical forbears, and channeling the spirits of their successors, the 2005 New Music Seance Concerts featured five hours of hypnotic solo piano music performed by Sarah Cahill or on the eerily disembodied Yamaha Disklavier, with additional spirit raising interludes by the Kate Stenberg and Eva-Maria Zimmerman violin-piano duo. Held in the intimate, candle lit setting of the historic Arts & Crafts styled Swedenborgian Church in San Francisco, this first concert features works by Dane Rudhyar Peter Garland, Leo Ornstein, Erik Satie, Charles Ives, and others.
