To gather support for artist Ann Trondson's sound performance Rehearsal/Recording at the Schindler House on September 15, 2012, the MAK Center for Art and Architecture will host a fundraising event on February 17.
The evening will feature arts writer Jan Tumlir presenting a lecture on the relationship between black and white monochrome painting and noise music, artist and magician Ross Moreno delighting and confounding with roving magic tricks, and the recorded music of first violinist in the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra and Rehearsal/Recording participant Mischa Lefkowitz, playing throughout the house.
When the Schindler House was built in 1922, in what was a yet to be-developed area of Los Angeles, it must have been an exotic encounter for passersby. Trondson's work is an inquiry into how this radically different building may have been experienced. What would it have been like to come upon such an extraordinary house-particularly at night? Unable to access, attempting to see inside through the narrow window slits, it must have bewildered one's senses.
Rehearsal/Recording is a sound performance. Renowned composer Claudio Vena will be commissioned to compose a music piece on site prior to September 15. On that night, musicians from the L.A. Philharmonic will gather together with Vena for the first time to rehearse and record the newly composed music inside the Schindler House. The audience will experience the performance like unsuspected wanderers stumbling upon the residence, unable to watch, but enticed to listen to what is happening inside.
