To honor California-native John Cage’s centenary, RE:COMPOSITION, a thematic program of performances curated by Julie Lazar, considers how current compositional practices and tools are enabling artists working in a variety of disciplines to re-conceive or reconstitute aspects of their art creation. This project is part of the Getty Foundation’s collaborative initiative, Pacific Standard Time’s Performance and Public Art Festival, and the only one that will travel between Northern and Southern California.
Four performances take place each night:
Still Movement: Homage to Nan Hoover (2011) by Sandro Dukic. A commissioned performance installation inspired by Hoover’s photographic work from 1980. The title describes the occupation of her interests while the event manifests the contours of her core ideas. A video installation by Nan Hoover is also on view in Exchange and Evolution at the Long Beach Museum of Art (ends February 12)..
Bar Hopping (2011) is composed and performed by Joan Jeanrenaud and Paul de Jong. Commissioned music and film that playfully rethinks visual and musical influences in California from the mid-1950s to the present including cello concertos and contemporary experimental composers. This is a remote collaboration between two leading artists residing on both coasts of the U.S.
Evolution (2010-11) by JD Beltran with music by Marc Barrite and technical assistance by Scott Minneman. As an adaptation of AntiMaster, projected digital film is synchronized with live electronic music.. Evolution is inspired by the migration of ideas between San Francisco and Los Angeles from the late 1940s through the 1960s that formed the basis of the Visual Music Movement. Its creative influences include Oskar Fischinger, James and John Whitney, Jordan Belson and Harry Jacobs.
I N T E R R U P T U S (2009-2011) by Joan Retallack and Michael Ives. A procedural lecture for two voices in homage to John Cage’s principle of interpenetraton and non-obstruction. Performed by Michael Ives and Joan Retallack who collaborated on a unique realization of the piece.
