On Friday, April 11, Sound Artist Chris Kallmyer will give guests at the Marina Del Rey Garden Center the rare opportunity to explore the relationship between plant selections and sounds. This drop-in concert will connect the musical qualities of different plant species to sounds in nature, creating a wild symphonic soundscape for guests to enjoy. Kallmyer will be joined by the adventurous new-music quartet Gnarwhallaby, who will be playing music to accompany the artist’s custom-composed garden sounds. This experimental musical performance will link bird-friendly native plants and trees, and white-noise inducing grasses sold at the garden center, with the sounds they can create at home, showcasing how one can transform their backyard and garden into a musical instrument through plant selections.
Support for this program was provided through the City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural Affairs, and is produced by Community Arts Resources (CARS).
