Additional Information

Before each major wild Up concert the Hammer will host open rehearsals. This provides visitors with the unique opportunity to see how a concert program comes together, the mystery of the orchestra and the dynamics of the members unveiled. The rehearsals are a profound part of the process - this is where all the work takes place. During rehearsals the music is raw, incomplete and individual elements are worked through as well as issues like pitch, style, color. Drop in to see all the parts fall into place.

Today’s rehearsal is for ART.MUSIC., the final of the three major concerts of the residency scheduled for December 8th. For ART.MUSIC. the group examines the intersection of visual art and music by exploring the museum’s collections and creating new site-specific work. The program also features old works rearranged by wild Up composers for the Hammer.

During intermission, visitors are invited to walk around the museum to experience work composed specifically for Hammer spaces.

About the Residency
wild Up is a 24-member experimental classical/contemporary ensemble comprised of Los Angeles musicians committed to creating visceral, thought-provoking happenings. By mixing traditional classical works, challenging new compositions and indie music, their insightful programming looks to change the experience of the classical concert and reconceptualize the role of an orchestra in its community.

Throughout a performance wild Up creates an active experience for the audience by sharing the contextual and inspirational impetus for their program. The ensemble practices a philosophy of radical-inclusionism: audience members are invited to experience concerts the way that they see fit, and absolutely no music is off limits. When visiting the museum from July through December visitors will encounter vibrant performances, projects, and interactive installations.
