Clockshop’s quarterly Listening By Moonrise program returns to LA State Historic Park, featuring performances and immersive sound experiences with leading multi-disciplinary sound artists. On the eve of the full moon (or as close to it), this program offers guests moments of reflection, connection, and joy while experiencing music and sound collectively within the context of a community-centered green space.
For Listening By Moonrise, the three performances by Marc Merza with Jake Falby, Anna Luisa Petrisko, and Drum & Lace will be stationed in different locations throughout the park as pop-up musical experiences, and will perform for small groups following physical distancing protocols. Unlike past Listening by Moonrise events, this event is not ticketed or guided. When attendees arrive at the Clockshop check-in table they will be given a map of the park and where the performances are located. Music will begin at 5:00 pm and will end at approximately 6:30 pm. Attendees are welcome to wander the park and listen to music at their own pace, and will not be separated into designated groups.
This event is free and open to the public. Clockshop suggests a $5 donation to support our Reading and Listening by Moonrise series at LA State Historic Park.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Drum & Lace is an Italian composer and performer that creates music for film and media. Melding together sampled field recordings, chamber instruments and lush layers of synths, Drum & Lace creates densely textural and beat-heavy music, greatly drawing from film music, music concrete and modern electronica. Her ambient and chamber work also gathers great inspiration from nature and natural sound, as well as the juxtaposition of unlikely sounds with one another. Her composition work includes music for film/tv, as well as music for dance, theater, fashion and advertising. Her performances often include elements of spatial sound or sound installation, featured at events such as Moogfest 2019 and Quadraphonic at LAPL’s Taper Auditorium with Suzanne Ciani.
Marc Merza is a Filipino-American musician, sound designer and artist from Los Angeles, CA. The relation of his sonic work is threaded tightly with his experience of displacement and Asian diaspora- often utilizing tape loops and analog equipment alongside acoustic instruments to express these emotions. He works with numerous collaborators in the practice of recording and performing which signifies his view on the importance of community. Currently, Marc Merza is working on a series of compositions for Kulintang and Sarunay- indigenous metallophones from the Philippines- in hopes of bridging the gap between his musical experience and his culture.
Anna Luisa Petrisko makes video art and music that spans from experimental opera to new age pop. Collaborating with many artists, she sees the shared labor as a way to form relationships and cultural communion. Anna Luisa has worked with many artist-run and non-profit organizations in LA including Coaxial Arts Foundation, Femmebit, Dublab, Los Angeles Performance Practice, LACE, SASSAS, Mutant Salon, Human Resources, KNOWLEDGES, Echo Park Film Center, Pilipino Worker’s Center, and the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival. She teaches Video and Sound Art at California State University San Marcos.
