Eight Gigs: Cameron Carpenter
Wed., Feb. 10, 8 p.m., Mondavi Center, $13.50-$51
Defying the laws of tradition, Berlin-based organist extraordinaire Cameron Carpenter returns to Mondavi, but with his custom-built International Touring Organ in tow this time. The instrument cost $1.2 million to construct and now affords him the ability to bring his organ skills to any venue that will accommodate him. This particular engagement finds Carpenter playing a short recital before launching headlong into a wholly improvised score for the infamous 1920 silent horror flick The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. 1 Shields Avenue in Davis, www.cameroncarpenter.com.
