THIS WEEK IN A.I.R. / AUGUST 21

Wednesday, August 18th, 2010



SATURDAY, August 21st
HOUSEPLANT VACATION
1-4:00pm Lindbrook Terrace

Performance schedule for plants:
1-2pm
Haruko Tanaka, one half of the artist intuitive duo Krystal Krunch, will conduct a follow up to Krystal Krunch partner, Asher Hartman’s August 7th visit. She will check in with the plants and relay any energetic messages received.

2-3pm
Laura Steenberge will address the plants with a battery of readings specially tailored to maximize plant efficacy

3-4pm
Robert Crouch will perform an improvised sound work exploring the intersection of music, public space, and landscape. His performance will incorporate a collection of processed field recordings culled from a variety of sources including Hollywood Blvd., Joshua Tree National Park, and a recent performance by artist Julie Tolentino.

Sublamp (Los Angeles based artist Ryan Connor) uses sampled string instruments and a selection of field recordings to create a slowly evolving time-based map of an imagined landscape. This audio map is used to explore both a physiological reaction to sound as a means to understand one’s environment and an intuitive / emotional response to sound.


THIS WEEK IN THE LITTLE WILLIAM THEATER
FESTIVAL OF NEW MUSIC – OPEN INSTRUMENTATION & TEXT SCORES

1-4pm
Scott Cazan and Chris Kallmyer step in to perform scores of open instrumentation with a variety of objects including, but not limited to: glasses, bowed guitars, violins, pots and pans, and possibly an inductive amplifier. Come check out a unique week in the Little William.
