wild Up: Chamber Music

Andrew McIntosh: The Symmetry Etudes

Throughout the residency, wild Up musicians will have the opportunity to explore their individual interests through a chamber music series. This week Ashley Walters, Brian Walsh and Jim Sullivan perform Andrew McIntosh's new book of self-contained individual pieces The Symmetry Etudes as well as his piece for solo cello Another Secular Calvinist Creed about growing up in the desert on the east side of the Sierra Nevada mountains.

wild Up
is a 24-member experimental classical/contemporary ensemble comprised of Los Angeles musicians committed to creating visceral, thought-provoking happenings. By mixing traditional classical works, challenging new compositions and indie music, their insightful programming looks to change the experience of the classical concert and reconceptualize the role of an orchestra in its community. Throughout a performance wild Up creates an active experience for the audience by sharing the contextual and inspirational impetus for their program. The ensemble practices a philosophy of radical-inclusionism: audience members are invited to experience concerts the way that they see fit, and absolutely no music is off limits.

When visiting the museum from July through December visitors will encounter vibrant performances, projects, and interactive installations. Stop by to find out what’s possible when an orchestra takes on a museum.

The Hammer Museum’s Public Engagement program seeks to create a new kind of interactive museum: an artist-driven visitor engagement program that encourages contact among visitors, artists, and Museum staff, and activates spaces in imaginative ways.

The Hammer Museum’s Public Engagement Program is supported through a major grant from the James Irvine Foundation. Additional Support is provided by The Shifting Foundation.
