British sound artists ‘EarFilms’ are heading to L.A. from March 11-14 with their immersive audio installation at downtown arts community center ArtShare L.A. for eight exclusive performances. Seating is extremely limited.
EarFilms creates a cinematic storytelling experience like no other - with the complete absence of visuals. Wearing a blindfold and seated in a 3-D array of speakers, plunge into a soundscape storyworld with environments, characters and live narration that swirls around you. Lose yourself in a vivid and life-like story for your ears and your imagination.
“The vision is to create a first-of-its-kind experience that truly unlocks the listener’s imagination. EarFilms breathes new life into the tradition of storytelling, turning it into a hyper-real experience and providing an antidote to a world which is fast being taken-over by screens,” explains Daniel Marcus Clark, co-creator and narrator.
Haunting and magical, EarFilms’ debut experience To Sleep To Dream is a story of hope in darkness, the power within a dreamer and the boundless freedom found in imagination.
Executive Director Cheyanne Sauter said, “To say that we are completely transforming the studio space at Art Share L.A. to create a sensory wonderland is an understatement. You’re going to have to experience it yourself to believe it.”
Each show is followed by a question and answer session where audience members can explore and share their individual experiences with each other and the EarFilms team. The audience then exits through The Imaginarium where they are encouraged to contribute to a touring exhibition of the imagination through a variety of media: words, video, audio recording and graphic images.
When & Where
Helix Collective Film Scoring Ensemble - The Academy for Scoring Arts - Art Share L.A.
Los Angeles-based Helix Collective performs a high-energy, out-of-the-box mix of world, classical and rock n' roll. At performances you will find yourself dancing, singing, banging on tables and always having a fantastic time! The ensemble is at home in nightclubs and on the concert stage from a residency at Los Angeles’s venerable Silverlake Lounge to performances for the West Michigan and Pacific Symphonies. Helix "has a little something for everyone: those who like their classics straight up, with a contemporary edge to it, or with populist appeal” (Audiophile Audition Magazine). Called "dizzyingly virtuosic [with] exquisite musicianship and world-class range" by The Free Times and praised for their "beyond-the-ordinary programming," the flexible ensemble includes flute/piccolo/alto flute, oboe/English horn, cello, piano and percussion. The group has released two critically acclaimed albums. All In was released in 2009 followed by World Dance Club in 2013.
The Academy of Scoring Arts
The Academy of Scoring Arts is an educational non-profit organization founded by composer Ron Jones (Star Trek: Next Generation, Family Guy) that strives to build a collaborative community across many filmmaking disciplines, from composers and musicians to directors, producers, and editors. In 2009, a community of working composers began meeting monthly to study orchestration and to share information and ideas among their peers. This group, nicknamed the “Ravel Study Group,” continues its monthly gathering in LA, helmed by musician Don Williams, brother of film music composer John Williams. In a few short years, it has expanded to chapters all over the US and Canada. The Academy also produces “INFOrums,” seminars presented by professionals working in all aspects of the industry, including TV producers, picture editors, music supervisors, entertainment attorneys, hit songwriters, audio engineers, and concert conductors. The vibrant Academy of Scoring Arts community is brimming with creative, talented members who are looking forward to showcasing their work at the third annual LA Live Score Film Festival!
