    Sympathetic Resonance: An Evening of Improvised Alchemy
    Highways Performance Space and Gallery, 1651 18th St, Santa Monica, CA 90404, USA

    Sympathetic Resonance: an Evening of Improvised Alchemy is an innovative transmedia performance by an international collective of artists, filmmakers, performers, and programmers.

    The evening opens in the gallery for “Are We There Yet?” a monumental holographic head called the Grand Turk, who interacts with audiences in real time dispensing deep truths and random facts as she contemplates the meaning of progress.

    “Heartache Hoedown” then takes the stage with a discordant bellydance duet that responds to a nostalgic rhythm sampled and remixed live. As the song’s lyrics slowly unravel in English, the artists and the audiences are drawn uncomfortably together to process the tumultuous global events of 2016.

    The evening closes with an American debut of “Sympathetic Resonance,” a concert-length transmedia suite and sensory installation in four parts that celebrates the piano as musical instrument, unique sound source, and historico-cultural phenomenon — performed by the composer and original “mad scientist of the piano” in a lavish interactive digital and sculptural performance-scape.

    Improvised Alchemy participating artists are: Renée T. Coulombe, Ilknur Demirkoparan & Vuslat Demirkoparan Katsanis, aka the IronBreaker sisters, Codrut Stancu, and Peter Terner. http://www.improvisedalchemy.com/

    Terry Riley, with Gyan Riley, featuring artist Peter Coffin
    Getty Museum

    Terry Riley with Gyan Riley
    performing to
    'Untitled (Shepard-Risset Glissando with color)' by Peter Coffin

    December 17, 2016
    J. Paul Getty Museum
    Harold M. Williams Auditorium
    Tickets are free; reserve at www.getty.edu/360

    Join us for a rare and original performance with the renowned and widely influential composer Terry Riley, known as the father of minimalism for his groundbreaking 1964 work 'In C'. Together with his son, composer and guitarist Gyan Riley, they will perform in response to Untitled (Shepard-Risset Glissando with Color) a new artwork by New York conceptual artist Peter Coffin.

    The Getty's auditorium will be transformed by Coffin through an immersive projection of radiant fields of color that shift through the spectrum in tandem with the Shepard-Risset Glissando, an auditory illusion of oscillating sound waves.

    Performing in conversation with these visual and auditory phenomena, Terry Riley and Gyan Riley will draw upon their practice of collaborative improvisations, emphasizing the synthesis of minimalism, jazz, ragtime and North Indian raga that have come to define Terry Riley’s iconic career.

    This program complements the exhibitions The Art of Alchemy and The Alchemy of Color in Medieval Manuscripts, which explore the scientific and seemingly magical energies surrounding the experience of color in centuries past.
    _

    Tickets are free with reservation. Parking is $10 after 3pm.
    Show at 7:30pm, doors open for seating at 7pm.
    Cash bar and snacks on the terrace starting at 5:30pm.

    This unique gathering will represent the depth and diversity of the Los Angeles music scene and will celebrate the first year of the Soundwaves new music series.

Students and faculty from southland colleges and universities and members of several local orchestras and bands of various styles will be involved. Musicians should download the sheet music from http://imslp.org/wiki/In_C_(Riley,_Terry) and arrive by 6PM on Dec. 21 for a short rehearsal.
