Transparent Cities

Transparent Cities

Transparent Cities, a new, site-specific work by Madison Brookshire, April Guthrie, Michael Pisaro and Cassia Streb combines audio and video recordings with live musical performance to create a study of light and sound in Los Angeles that explores the complex relationship between reality and recording. This collaboration is built on the ensemble Guthrie & Streb, a Los Angeles–based music ensemble committed to new and experimental works.

This performance is being produced as part of the Hammer Museum’s Artist Residency Program.
