Pinna Records Record/Book Release Party – Kenji Oh/Giacomo Fiore/Shari Arai DeBoer 7-9pm Free
Join Pinna Records to celebrate the release of our fourth recording: Kenji Oh's 'Yoshitsune Senbon Sakura – Josetsu Horikawa,' a suite for prepared guitar based on the last scene of the well-known Kabuki play, performed by Giacomo Fiore. We commissioned local artist Shari Arai DeBoer to create the accompanying artwork for this digital-only release. Her sublime watercolored linocuts were laid out as an accordion book by designer Mary Harburg-Petrich. The book was printed in a limited edition of 100 and bound at Cardoza James Binding.
Giacomo will perform the music live, and we'll have the book + download for sale. The composer and artist will be on hand to sign your copy. Champagne and refreshments will be served; you can also order from The Octopus' regular menu. And we'll hold a raffle for a free copy of the book/download!
