'Avant Music Festival'

Hermann Hesse's Siddartha starts and ends at the river, and so does avant-garde composer Eve Beglarian's minimalist tone poem Songs from the River and Elsewhere. Here, Beglarian distilled the aquatic sounds after spending 2009 kayaking down the mighty Mississippi on her own Buddhist journey. The path to musical nirvana continues on Saturday with trance-inducing, incense-burning drone sherpa Randy Gibson's electronic compositions "The Third Pillar in Primal Imperfect Palindrome with The Souvenir of The Second Pillar," "The Floating Cirrus over the Pumping Slush," and "The Highest Moving Chordal Motif from Apparitions of the Four Pillars." Apparently, he's not into the whole brevity thing.
