Museum Meets Orchestra (Ep. 2)

1/13/2014; 8 minutes

The UCLA Hammer Museum invited wild Up, a 24-member, experimental classical/contemporary orchestra, to be in residence over a six-month period in 2012. During that time, the orchestra presented three major concerts and 30 smaller chamber music performances that defied convention and transformed the museum into a space as unexpected and moving as the music itself.

Episode 2 examines in-depth two very different compositions commissioned for the residency. Members discuss how the residency provided unique opportunities for experimentation in performance and context.
