dublab’s Tonalism at Sonos Studio
Think staying up to gaze at the supermoon was beautiful but lacked a little… excitement?
Then you may want to stop by Sonos Studio this weekend for Tonalism, an event presented by Los-Angeles-based nonprofit Internet radio station, dublab.
Known for its penchant for musical and cultural experimentation, dublab invites you to enjoy music and art installations from 6 pm Saturday through 6 am Sunday. Yes, you read that correctly — Sonos Studio will be open all night for your viewing and listening pleasure.
Inspired by the music of Terry Riley, Yoko Ono, and John Cage as well as “Dream House,” a collaboration between composer La Monte Young and visual artist Marian Zazeela, Tonalism will “combine music harmonious textures with visual elements to create an immersive atmosphere.” The audio, provided by numerous musicians and DJs, will transform the pieces of interactive, software-based art of Sonos Studio’s Algo-Rhythms exhibition.
And while lying down on the floor of a gallery is usually frowned upon, Tonalism actually asks visitors to bring pillows, cushions, and sleeping bags in order to lie back, relax, and lose themselves in this one of a kind experience.
Algo-Rhythms closes on August 25th, so this is one of your last opportunities to check out the DevArt show.
