Ellen Reid is a Pulitzer Prize-winning composer whose opera p r i s m was performed here in 2018 at Redcat to great reception. We can now enjoy another of her works, pandemic-style, with SOUNDWALK.
SOUNDWALK is enjoyed via a free app that enables music (performed by the Kronos Quartet) to connect you with your surroundings – in this case, Griffith Park. You pick a trail, which dictates the music you hear on the app; no trip is the same twice. The work opened Thursday; you can go any day from now through 2023 when presumably things will be back to some level of normal and we will remember how important music and surroundings are to our well-being.
