Philharmonia Fantastique Soundcheck

Saturday, November 12, 2022 7:30pm

Event Description

A Teddy Abrams Signature Event! A Cultural Collision for the Senses!

Playing with the lights, music, color, film, and dance, Teddy brings us an exciting once-in-a-lifetime arts party. He premieres a new film by his friend and colleague MASON BATES that brings together Pixar-level animation and live orchestra performance. Go inside the orchestra… literally!

The program is a kaleidoscope of visuals and audio that is fantastique and fun. The Creators Corps brought inspiration to the set with extra-musical experiences. Lisa Bielawa explains, “This program celebrates the encounter between music and its sister arts:  film, theater, movement, light. Each piece brings its own extra-musical partner art, inviting us to think about what our living rooms, a nighttime lake, or a dance party, might teach us about how we hear our world.”

TJ Cole expects something special. “We chose music that included seeing the orchestra dance to pop music, using strange percussion objects in unusual lighting and electronics. We think this will be a fully immersive experience for the senses.”

DJ Masonic rocks the tunes after the show for an LA dance party for everybody.
