Art. Music.

Hammer Museum
10899 Wilshire Blvd
Los Angeles, California 90024

For our last concert as Orchestra in Residence at the Hammer Museum we explore the intersection of physical art and music. We’re interested in the studio practice, post-studio practice, and ideas of what makes art in a museum different from art in a concert hall, temporal or otherwise.

We’re playing music by and inspired by art — we’re going to saturate the museum in sound with commissions written specifically for spaces at the Hammer.

Respighi — Botticelli Triptych “La primavera”
Don McLean — Vincent / Halvorson
Antony and the Johnsons — the spirit was gone / Valitutto
Feldman — Rothko Chapel

— INTERMISSION — Spatial Music all over the Hammer

Site specific premieres by: Colin Wambsgangs, Chris Votek, Archie Carey, Christopher Rountree, Colin Woodford.
