About This Performance
Conducted by festival curator Christopher Rountree and directed by R.B. Schlather, November 17, 2018, will be an exploration of the Fluxus movement staged throughout Walt Disney Concert Hall by the Los Angeles Philharmonic, in one of the most ambitious undertakings of the orchestra’s 100-year career, and one of the largest-scale Fluxus events ever to be put on by a major symphony orchestra.
- A rare performance of a two-hour section of La Monte Young’s The Second Dream of The High-Tension Line Stepdown Transformer from The Four Dreams of China in the concert hall, directed by the composer, with lighting by Marian Zazeel
- Guest artists and audience-members performing a selection of Fluxus scores by Alison Knowles, Yoko Ono, Ken Friedmani, Benjamin Patterson, Christian Wolff, Christopher Rountree, R.B. Schlather, and Pauline Oliveros
- An evening performance by the LA Phil and Roomful of Teeth in the concert hall featuring works by Yoko Ono, John Cage, Benjamin Patterson, Nam June Paik, La Monte Young, Dick Higgins, Luciano Berio, and a world premiere by Steven Kazuo-Takasugi
This is a not-to-be missed event in the history of the LA Phil, one designed to dissolve the perceived boundaries between audience, musician, and work. The entire campus will be activated, with sound, light and activity emanating from throughout the building. It will be an evening of chance encounters, unexpected delights, and historic performances.
