From S.E.M's Facebook Event Page:
"Ahead of its September 27th performance at the Sacrum Profanum Festival in Krakow, Poland, SEM will present a free (donations appreciated) preview concert nearly identical to those from the ensemble’s early days in the 1970s, when founding members Petr Kotik, Julius Eastman, and Jan Williams presented avant-garde performances in Buffalo, Albany, and later New York and began collaborating extensively with John Cage. Included in this program is Cage’s "Song Books" (1970), the first extended ensemble performance of which was realized by SEM, and several early works by Eastman.
