CD Release Listening Party & Mini-Concert

  • Fantasy Studios 2600 10th Street Berkeley, CA, 94710 United States (map)

Join True Life Trio and Gari Hegedus for this unique musical experience at the legendary Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Doors, drinks, and mingling at 7:30 PM, listening at 8:00 PM.

What is a listening party? Lush, cinematic and evocative, Like Never & Like Always was designed as a full-immersion sonic experience best enjoyed in sequence from beginning to end (call us old-fashioned…). At this party, we will gather in the studio and listen to the album in its entirety. (There will be chairs but feel free to bring your own cushion if you want to lounge on the floor). True Life Trio and Gari Hegedus will then round out the evening with some live music.

ABOUT LIKE NEVER & LIKE ALWAYS

This exciting album is the culmination of a live performance and recording project commissioned by the East Bay Community Foundation Fund for Artists. True Life Trio and multi-instrumentalist/composer Gari Hegedus have created a dreamlike soundscape of stunning open-voice harmonies, elemental modal music and vivid poetry from Eastern Europe and the Balkans, and inspired original music. Co-produced by sound designer/composer Eric Oberthaler, this ambitious album is a heartful and intriguing musical odyssey that traces a life journey in reverse, touching on universal themes of childhood, marriage, migration, war and death.
