On Saturday, 8/23, come see this SASSAS event at the Schindler House that I partially curated. It will be a really fascinating investigation of a unique historical architectural space, and a chance to see the Tony Greene exhibit if you haven't yet. The whole event is 4-8pm, so you'll still be able to experience it and still have time to go see I Was Looking at the Cieling...!

SASSAS, in conjunction with the MAK Center, presents sound. at the Schindler House: Space as Raw Material with Woody Sullender, Odeya Nini and Carmina Escobar on Saturday, August 23, 2014. Space as Raw Material embraces the intersections of divergent creative practices, including architecture and sound, performance and installation. The durational performances include "Furniture Music", a new site-specific installation by Brooklyn-based artist Woody Sullender, making his Los Angeles premiere, and vocal performance of "A Solo Voice" by Odeya Nini and "Source" by Carmina Escobar. Over the course of the four hour event, the artists will highlight the subliminal acoustics of the Schindler House, creating multiple listening spaces in the interior and exterior spaces of the historic structure.
For this concert, SASSAS transforms the four studios and outdoor courtyards of the Schindler House into listening spaces resounding with temporal sonic investigations of architecture, voice and interactions with one another. Woody Sullender's performance, "Furniture Music" utilizes modular cardboard forms outfitted with audio transducers resulting in resonating ‘speaker’ objects that will be used to divide and shape the space into a reverberating ‘living room’ on the Schindler patio. Vocalist Odeya Nini's "A Solo Voice" explores extended bodily resonances, communicating textural harmony, gesture and tonal animation. Carmina Escobar's vocal performance "Source" reflects upon the body as a space that reveals, measures and recognizes itself through vibration.
