In celebration of the release of Soundscapes: Teira, (November 2022) LAND is pleased to present a field recording workshop created by interdisciplinary artist Teira along the 210 Metro bus line, a daily experience of her formative years. Participants will learn to create their own field recordings using Teira’s cultural mapping techniques while visiting historic locations along the route, providing deeper insights into their relationship to the sounds of the city. Participants will ride the 210 Metro bus, the Metro K-Line, and walk to three locations, recording what they hear and see along their route. Space for this workshop is limited and RSVP is required.
This program was made possible in part by a grant from the City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural Affairs. Special thanks to Metro Art.

Teira is a multidisciplinary artist whose works incorporate music performance, sound installation, and sculpture. Her practice explores the connectivity between the body and sound, the ephemeral nature of technology, and spirituality. Teira creates immersive performances using analog instruments and found objects to recreate her inner world, from a dilapidated swap meet to an abandoned baptism pool in South Los Angeles.
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 2023 exhibitions are made possible with lead support from the Offield Family Foundation, the Jerry and Terri Kohl Family Foundation, and The Perenchio 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, Brenda Potter, the Wilhelm Family Foundation and LAND’s Nomadic Council. Special thanks to Artist Sponsors Karen Hillenburg, Liana Krupp, Abby Pucker, Ben Weyerhaeuser, and the Poncher Family Foundation.
