wild Up Spacial Music Series
Hammer Museum (Westwood)
From September through December wild Up presents four distinct projects inspired by the Hammer's unique public spaces. With the Hammer's architecture as a subject, wild Up artists create site-specific projects that investigate the social and sonic nature of public space. This month the Hammer presents Familiar Architectures, where five cellists attempt to play Bach's Six Suites for Unaccompanied Cello simultaneously in a variety of spatial and sonic arrangements. This site-specific work by Chris Kallmyer uses familiar materials to create something new in the unique spaces of the museum.
