I can't imagine what Tara Jane O'Neil's new composition, Sev Entrain, sounds like. It's described as "an interpretation of a graphic score"—meaning that while I think there's technically sheet music, it eschews formal musical notation in favor of sonically representing a series of O'Neil's line drawings. She's not performing it alone; Rachel Carns, Lisa Schonberg, Heather Treadway, and Kanako Wynkoop will also be part of the ensemble for this one-time performance. Judging from O'Neil's past work, Sev Entrain is bound to be full of subtle, watery beauty, but it won't make use of O'Neil's compelling guitar work. Rather, the sounds will come from gongs, tubes, drums, organs, voice, and more. An art book accompanies the piece, which was funded by a RACC grant. NED LANNAMANN
