Chris Kallmyer leads a group of musicians in our second day of spatial music at the Hammer. Here’s the prompt:

Familiar Architectures 

Five cellists attempt to play the six Bach Cello Suites simultaneously in a variety of spatial and sonic arrangements.  This site-specific work by Chris Kallmyer uses familiar materials to create something new in the unique spaces of the Hammer Museum.  I’ll be working with an architect on this project in the hopes to more directly engage with the spaces at the museum.  I’m particularly excited about this project because of the collaboration.
