Known for producing visceral, convention-defying concert experiences, the daring Los Angeles modern music collective wild Up explores a range of their influential contemporaries from Brooklyn in this eclectic program presented in conjunction with the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s adventurous Brooklyn Festival.
The collective’s artistic director and conductor Christopher Rountree leads varied groupings of more than 20 players and guest artists as they careen from J.S. Bach to They Might Be Giants, and beyond.
New works by Matt Marks, Du Yun, David T. Little and others are part of this musical journey from classical roots, through twisted pop idioms and into a maelstrom of experimentalism, noise and multimedia.
