Now in its 15th year, Ms. Cahill’s coming Garden of Memory event at the Chapel of the Chimes in Oakland encapsulates her eclectic musical sensibilities. Last year, the walk-through Garden of Memory concert attracted 1,500 people. On Monday, audience members can wander around the maze-like columbarium experiencing such musical offerings as an electro-acoustic piece by Albert Behar, a young composer based in New York, involving two dancers wearing “megaphone helmets” (headgear that plays music wirelessly as the wearer moves) and a duet between Henry Kaiser, an experimental rock guitarist, and a balloon clown.
