"Bassist-composer Lisa Mezzacappa is one of the most imaginative figures on the Bay Area creative jazz scene." —Rich Scheinen, San Jose Mercury News

The formidable bassist, bandleader, composer, curator, and producer Lisa Mezzacappa presents ORGANELLE, an exploration of time from the nano to cosmic scale. For Resonance, this new composition for flexible improvising ensemble will be performed by percussion quartet. Its rhythms, musical relationships, melodies, and structures each connect to a theory of cell biology, astrophysics, paleontology, zoology, or neuroscience, evoking otherwise-imperceptible phenomena through sound.

Mezzacappa will also perform an intermedia solo bass version of the work she specifically designed for the Exploratorium’s Kanbar Forum.
