Event description

Description

Gaze at celestial wonders through Mount Wilson Observatory's 60-inch telescope, while live musical accompaniment creates a score for a once in a lifetime experience.

This intimate series pairs experimental musicians with telescope observation sessions. Audiences will have the opportunity to gaze through the telescope at celestial objects, which may include nebula, star clusters, planets, or the moon, depending on the time of night. These are the largest telescopes in the world that are available for public use. Each of these eight micro-concerts/ viewing sessions has very limited capacity of 20-25 people and is ticketed at $40 per person.

Sun Araw is the working title of a musical project helmed by Los Angeles-based artist Cameron Stallones. Structural and spiritual inspiration for Sun Araw comes primarily from investigation into the nature of experience by the transformative power of simple observation. The goal has always been the creation of a psychedelic music, by which is meant a psychotropic music: not an aesthetic sensibility but a method of discontinuous experience. Supporting every Sun Araw composition is the fact of mantra: the ability of repetition with attention to change the perception of a melodic object. By means of this constantly changing perception, the possibilities of improvisation become infinite. More recent works attempt to effect the mental activity of the listener even more physically and directly than before by removing a fixed location from which to listen.

Since the project's inception in 2007, 8 full-length LPs, 3 EPs, 6 cassettes, and innumerable collaborations have emerged, partaking in a musical spectrum spanning psychedelic drone and melted afrobeat, warped dub and minimal composition, all the while remaining distinct from any possible genre classification.
