The Vernacular Visions slideshow series was invited to partake in a three month residency at the Center for New Music in San Francisco, September through November 2015. 
 
At each performance a 35mm slideshow of found photographs will be projected while two small groupings of musical improvisers (from both Oakland and San Francisco) interpret & accompany the images with a live soundtrack. At the end of the night there will be a collaborative set between all of the musicians (who have never performed together prior and most likely do not even know each other). Co-curated by Justin Rhody and Tania Chen, this series of performances explores ambiguity and non-linear narrative forms within both the visual and audio-based arts.
