Calling all night owls! On February 5, 2016, check out Sleepless: The Music Center After Hours. From 11:30 p.m. until 3am, you can wander through the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion “as the theatre is transformed, sonically, visually and spatially.” Enjoy DJs, light baths, projections, art and sound installations, and hands-on projects.
You can “create a personalized city-scape of Los Angeles at an oversized shadow puppet gallery; relax on bean bags and pillows to enjoy large-scale projections and listen to a curated roster of DJs playing ambient sounds; dance to electronic music from the top Los Angeles dance labels amid the elegant 18th century design in the Pavilion’s exclusive Founders Room; and bask in the lower levels of the building with a unique sound installation.”
The event will feature a creative video installation designed by Garson Yu, whose design studio was responsible for the 3D animated light projections that appeared on three downtown Los Angeles buildings on New Year’s Eve. Other art installations will be presented by Touch sound artists Chris Watson, Jana Winderen, Bethan Parkes, Hildur Gudnadottir, The Eternal Chord, Philip Jeck, Simon Scott, and BNilsen & drøne; and Alexandra Pelly with Jon-Kyle Mohr. Hands-on experiences will be offered by Daniel Gonzalez of Self-Help Graphics and Art; Diva Dompe; and The Valley Sound. Sleepless is a collaboration with non-profit web radio collective dublab. Music provided by: Artists from Mas Exitos, ESP Institute, and Leaving Records.
This is a free event, and space is limited. Online reservations are booked, but walk-ups are highly encouraged. Parking is available in The Music Center lot, under the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, for $5.00 after 8:00 p.m. Cocktails and small bites available for purchase, we also suggest hitting the Original Pantry after the event closes.
