About This Performance
Winner of a 2009 ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer Award, Little Green Pop was written for Ensemble Klang, whose instrumentation screamed “Alien Pop Music” to composer Sean Friar. “Perhaps it had to do with the chirpy and elemental opening ideas I had jotted down,” Friar writes, “and the fact that I’d envisioned them nestled in a thick bed of reverb. Regardless of the reason, I could tell I was not going to be able to shake the imagery of little green men jamming from my head, so I decided to embrace it and see where it would take me.”
LA Phil Creative Chair John Adams showcases the imaginative breadth of the next generation of L.A. creators.
The world premiere of a new piece by experimental artist/singer Julia Holter.
