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.
Curated by Angela Lin, the founder of Taiwanese music label Pure Person Press, this Listening by Moonrise program features artists Jeremiah Chiu & Marta Sofia Honer. This afternoon program seeks to connect listeners with their natural surroundings through the unexpected pairing of modular synths and viola.
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.
Food will be available for purchase from Gu Grocery. Gu Grocery is a mother-daughter-sister, Chinese Taiwanese family food project offering high-quality pantry staples and handmade treats.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Jeremiah Chiu & Marta Sofia Honer
The combination of modular synthesizer and viola is an uncommon one, yet Jeremiah Chiu & Marta Sofia Honer manage to create a distinctive dyad that comes together with grace and truth. Years of collaboration, cohabitation, shared experience, and separate but equally inspired commitments to utilitarian cultural work bind their disparate timbres into a singular aesthetic reality. In Chicago, Chiu’s musical CV included work with bands like Icy Demons and Chandeliers, but he was mostly known for his visual and graphic design work as Some All None. Honer had primarily worked as an instructor in Chicago and a member of the ensemble Quartet Datura. In 2014, a year after their first collaboration, they migrated to Los Angeles to continue developing their respective careers and crafts in sunnier climes. Honer has since become a first-call session player for the likes of Adrian Younge and Beyoncé. She’s also played on recordings by Chloe x Halle and Angel Olsen, among others, including five recordings with Grammy nominations. Along with her session work, Honer is on the music faculty at California State University Los Angeles. Chiu has expanded his visual work in numerous capacities, became an active intersectional community organizer, and refocused his musical practice to electronic music composition and sound art. Chiu is an Assistant Professor at Otis College of Art & Design; a resident programmer for Dublab; and has exhibited and performed at The Getty Center, LACMA, and other distinguished locales.
