SOUND IN SPACE EXPLORATIONS: an indiscriminate month of sound performances
Thursday, February 5 – Saturday, February 28th, 2009

Sound in Space will traverse diversity by presenting cross sections of the local sound art community. From sound installation to Fluxus note card pieces and Death Metal A Cappella to Modern day Mystics, the topography of the musical fringe is as varied as the Los Angeles community is geographically dispersed. This is a program for the community by artists in the community. Every performance is free with an aim to urge active collaboration and exchange between artists and audiences. While the sea and space are the dark unknowns, they don't have to be unknowable. Sound in Space is a vehicle with which the community is invited to navigate and explore art that has been termed "experimental" or "conceptual;" loose terms that create a barrier rather than extend a hand. The Sea and Space Explorations Gallery hosts performances and installations every weekend (Thursday through Sunday) during the month of February.
