Soundscapes: L.A. Summer Mixes
LAND (Los Angeles Nomadic Division) is proud to introduce Soundscapes, our new programming series dedicated to experimental music and audio practices, inviting artists to consider how location and sound in its various modalities are deeply intertwined. This series champions artists prioritizing audio and the sensorial over the ocular to facilitate unique experiences widely available to the public.
Soundscapes joins LAND’s existing series, Nomadic Nights, dedicated to performance and socially-engaged practices, and Frame Rate, presenting film and moving-image work. These three series demonstrate LAND’s dedication to supporting artists in immediate and responsive ways, while providing the public with access to works in process or newly-created.
LAND’s L.A. Summer Mixes is a monthly series that will span the four summer months and include a variety of elements that will tie into each mix. Artists will be invited to document their neighborhood and will also create a list of recommendations to accompany the mixes. Both the documentation and the neighborhood list will be released alongside the mixes to offer a more in depth perspective into the artist’s relationship with the places around them. To culminate this work, each L.A. Summer Mixes will be released at a LAND Members listening party at a local venue of the artist’s choosing that further celebrates the richness and various landscapes of the city.
LAND’s 2022 exhibitions are made possible with lead support from the Offield Family Foundation and the Jerry and Terri Kohl Family Foundation. Additional support is provided by the Fran and Ray Stark Foundation, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Department of Arts and Culture, the LA Arts Recovery Fund, and LAND’s Nomadic Council. Special thanks to Artist Sponsors Karen Hillenburg, Brenda Potter, Abby Pucker, Jay and Deanie Stein Foundation Trust, and the Poncher Family Foundation.
