Steven Speciale is a pianist, composer, and conductor. He teaches music at Loyola High School of Los Angeles where he is also the Choir Director and Music Director of the Hannon Theatre Company. The Toy Piano Cats are a new music and art ensemble at Loyola.

The Toy Piano Cats will host a concert centered around our interpretation of John Cage's "Bird Cage" (1972). According to Cage, "Bird Cage" is “Twelve tapes to be distributed by a single performer in a space in which people are free to move and birds to fly.” The duration, arrangement, and modulation of the tapes comprising this work were ascertained by means of I-Ching chance operations.

Club Bit Map at the Art Park

Sunday, October 15, 2017
7:00pm - 10:00pm

RSVP: on Facebook (optional and not required for admittance)

Club Bitmap heralds phog masheeen's return to free electric improvisation with beats. Working with legendary sonic swash bucklers Potar, Big Epoc and Skunk Puppet.

Potar is a local wonder of Circuit Bending. For those unfamiliar with bent circuits, circuit bending is the artful rewiring of consumer electronics so that it malfunctions in interesting ways and produces interesting sounds as a result. Potar have been at the vangard of this movement and from time to time taught classes on circuit bending.

Skunk Puppet rides the sonic waves of the laptop variety. Using a carefully chosen batch of apps Skunk Puppet creates an angry zoo of unimaginable beasts who's voices fly from the speakers.

Big Epoch uses a blend of bent gear and hardware to craft his beat-centric tones. An experienced warrior of the LA noise scene you can expect his set to deliver big surprises!

For Club Bitmap, phog masheeen will be fueling the Groove-Box to push envelope for the performers. Sliced beats served filtered and funky.

Reception for "Camelot and other stories" by Deborah Aschheim

Saturday, October 14, 2017
6:00pm - 9:00pm

RSVP: on Facebook (optional and not required for admission)

Camelot is a ghost city. In the mash-up of urban architecture, buildings from different cities, some misremembered or out of scale, some hybrids of two or more towers, and some ghosts of buildings that have been torn down or were never actually built share space in a luminous landscape that resonates with the memories of cities in the visitor’s mind. The installation was originally created for Tom Bradley International Terminal at LAX Airport in response to the unique state of mind of travelers in a disoriented limbo, a state that the artist considers dreamlike and poetic. For PUMP, Aschheim is installing Camelot in a conversation with some other sculptural meditations on Twentieth Century modernist architecture to bring to life a shifting personal geography of memory.
