The Echo Society VI: Family

Weekend long festival featuring original works by 21 Los Angeles-based composers and special guests exploring the theme of "Family." Each evening, 7 different composers presented or performed original works simultaneously in 7 rooms of the house for (mostly) unamplified instruments of their choosing. During each show, guests were free to explore the rooms inside the estate and discover the various performances as the evening unfolded.

'Gardenia' (for 2 cellos, piano, vocals/electronics) was performed on Friday October 20th, 2017 in the Pool Suite during the 5pm & 9pm show

Quadraphonic Interactive & Performative Workshop @ Echo Park Rising

For Echo Park Rising, a quad installation was set-up inside the Edendale Branch of the LA Public Library open to the public.

Throughout the afternoon we switched between two performances: the first being a quadraphonic sound bath with Suzanne Ciani’s most recent Quad LP (and the creator of the system Kamran V).

In the second part, I gave a short workshop on immersive audio/quad, before diving into an interactive quad performance that the audience had the chance to interact with. This interaction was done through the use of 4 iPads that had the capability of triggering sounds and placing them around the four speakers of the quad setup as I performed an ambient set.

This performance is scheduled to be repeated in 2019, and will include special guests and a different venue (TBA).
