Headspace: Celebrating Music and Mindfulness
Witness and experience music-driven mindfulness in a concert of meditative music performed by the USC Thornton Percussion Group. The concert will open with a group meditation led by Mark Miller of Mindful USC. This transcendent event will encourage mindful listening and living, and will be followed by a discussion and Q&A on meditation, music, sound, and being present to the world around us. In the week leading up to the concert, a series of pop-up performances around campus will feature Thornton musicians performing a musical walking meditation by USC composer Veronika Krausas. The musicians will play and move within individual pods, like floating sculptural sound objects. Short mindful statements written by Molly Bendall’s poetry writing class will be offered to the public as the musicians pass by. The original pods were conceived and constructed by architect Florian Idenburg (SO-IL NY) and artist Ana Prvački. They will be refabricated by Matthew Gilpin and students from the USC Viterbi School of Engineering.Bovard Auditorium (USC) 3551 Trousdale Parkway, Los Angeles, CA 90089

Hopscotch - a mobile opera
Imagine getting in a car without knowing the destination. Sharing the car are singers, actors, and instrumentalists who draw you into a story. The car stops at an incredible site, where another chapter of the story commences – until another car pulls up, with different artists, depicting another chapter of the story. And so on, and so on, in a 90-minute journey throughout the unsuspecting city. This was Hopscotch, The Industry’s original opera, that took audiences on a dazzling and disorienting ride through the streets of Los Angeles in 24 different car journeys.Los Angeles, CA

Sillages for 4 basses at Disney Hall
sillages Tuesday January 14, 2014 8pm LA Philharmonic Chamber Music Series TICKET INFORMATION Disney Hall, Los Angeles with Chris Hanulik, Oscar Meza, David Moore, Peter Rofé performance shot by Martin Chalifour In French sillage literally means wake or trail. In perfumery it's the degree to which a perfume's fragrance lingers in the air when worn. When I first heard the term I knew I would use it for the title of a piece. Then David Moore asked me to write a work for double bass quartet and I started with that as the title. To combine two seemingly disparate ideas - large double basses and the delicate waft of a scent - I asked Canadian writer André Alexis to write a poem that did just that. His poem was the poetic inspiration for this work for the four amazing bassists of the LA Phil: David Moore, Christopher Hanulik, Oscar Meza and Peter Rofé. Sillages A roar wafts into the land rumbling something floral. Under last year's straw the civet comes to life While plows with fragrant wrists stutter and dig the crumbling fields. Lumbering beasts with delicate minds, They leave quartz and citrus, almonds and rust. ~ André AlexisWalt Disney Concert Hall, Los Angeles

The story presents an alternate and parallel universe to the city of London. China's writing is so wonderfully poetic that I've used (with his permission!) several of his phrases as the titles for each of the pieces: each dreams the other, somewhere very else, a bowl for shadows, story ladder, and a chorus of night things.for more information: USC Thorton School of Music

Language of the Birds for Choir & String Quartet
Language of the Birds for Choir & String QuartetThe San Francisco Choral Artists and the renowned Alexander String Quartet, two of the Bay Area's beloved and wide-ranging chamber ensembles, come together for the first time in a landmark program of new compositions for chamber choir and string quartet. Together, they explore the rich sonic and emotional palette of this unusual musical configuration in rarely performed classics and new works by important contemporary composers. Major new commissioned works by North American Composers Paul Seiko Chihara, Michael Gandolfi, and Veronika Krausas are paired with the romantic outpourings of Brahms Quartets Opus 92 in a lush new transcription for choir and string quartet and Beethoven's tender Elegischer Gesang. A "Meet the Composers panel" 45 minutes before each concert offers the audience insight into the creative processes behind the three major new works. The artistic director is the fabulous conductor Magen Solomon.
