The Schoenberg Soundways
March 2-7, 2015
USC Campus
Los Angeles, CA

“The Schoenberg Soundways” was a dissemination of Arnold Schoenberg’s work presented through multiple formats and venues seventeen years after the Schoenberg Archives were moved from University of Southern California, Los Angeles, to Vienna, Austria.

“The Schoenberg Soundways” embodied intermittent audio emissions of five compositions that played as the mobile exhibition. Each composition were ‘performed’ by five USC Hospitality Vehicles, as they deliver services and goods throughout the USC campus. A bronze plaque, containing a quote from Schoenberg represents a commemorative gesture that was installed on the grounds of the Thornton Music School. The project included an evening of presentations and concerts at the Ramo Recital Hall including a lecture by Paul Chaikin, followed by Aron Kallay performing Schoenberg’s Drei Klavierstucke, Opus 11. Karen Dreyfus led the Thornton School of Music Ensemble for the performance of “Verklarte Nacht.”

A Visions and Voices Arts and Humanities Initiative project.

“Noir Telos” featured on Dominique Bailey’s online radio program “websyncradio”, Paris, France, 2013

Curated by Richard Garet.

Jean Luc Godard’s film “Alphaville” and the electronic voice of Alpha 60 in addition to the science fiction atmosphere that permeates the film was considered. I wanted to create a track that was musically spatial and somehow cinematic.

Noise is known as the source of dissonance and power. According to the music critic Simon Reynolds, noise occurs when language is broken down and is in a wordless state. He says that the pleasure of noise lies in the obliteration of meaning and identity, which he calls ecstasy. Jacques Attali writes about noise as a subversive disorder that can reveal the codes of life and relations among individuals. 

SENTINEL is a two night performance series in conjunction with Roundabout/UEBA. Schafer selected the sound artists, musicians, composers and turntablist; DSE, Neg-Fi, Richard Garet, and Maria Chavez with Daniel Neumann.
