Harmonic Languages


recitation by author

Harmonic Languages was first presented on June 12th 2012 at LACMA, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, as part of its annual ArtWalk - a day when the museum is open to the public for free. It was staged in the former home of the Architecture and Design Museum across from LACMA which at the time of the concert was an empty 10,000 square foot space with floor to ceiling windows. The piece was an aural response to the installation Accumulations also in the space by artist Meeson Pae Yang.
