. . . deep tones at twilight . . .
Octave Alliance and Didjemana invite you to join us at twilight on Hawk Hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean to experience a sound journey of didjeridus harmonizing in an outdoor echo chamber of unparalleled depth & radical natural reverb. In this unique one-time concert you will physically experience deep swirling drones, tones, & exotic rhythms amidst the arrival of nightfall with other explorers in a 50 yard stone walking tunnel in the Marin Headlands just north of San Francisco. With your presence, a uniquely memorable night.
Friday August 2nd, 2002
