Two of my favorite arts entities in LA--Society For the Activation of Social Space Through Art and Sound (SASSAS) and the MAK Center For Art and Architecture--are collaborating for an upcoming event.
If you're a fan of Los Angeles architecture and experimental music--most notably in the nostalgic reel-to-reel format, come down to the Schindler House in West Hollywood on Saturday, August 25th for 'sound. at the Schindler House: Tape Music.'
This rare concert will feature recent works from LA artist/composer John Wiese and Texas-born sound artist/avant guide composer William Basinski, and historic works from electronic art musician Pauline Oliveros among others.
To give you an idea of the arena of this music... Basinski was inspired by Brian Eno, among others. And, Oliveros received the John Cage award earlier this year.
If you're not in the avant garde musical loop (pun intended) and are not familiar with the aforementioned, it's a great chance to experience this sphere of 'creators' creators,' raw experimental music artists, in a unique architectural space.
The event runs from 2 to 8 p.m. Tickets are $12 in advance, $15 at the door, and $10 for SASSAS members, Friends of the MAK Center and students/seniors. They can purchased at SASSAS' website.
